Gylfi hails Swans' strike duo
2nd August 2014
Gylfi Sigurdsson believes a Wilfried Bony-Bafetimbi Gomis strike partnership will be a worrying sight for Premier League defences this season.
Summer signing Gomis was impressive in the Swans' 3-1 friendly win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium, with the French striker hitting the post before scoring the final goal via a neat finish.
He played alongside Bony, who saw his first-half penalty cannon off the crossbar, with the pair looking a menacing forward partnership.
And Sigurdsson feels an attacking pairing of Bony and Gomis will provide countless headaches for top-flight centre-backs.
"Bony and Gomis could be very dangerous. I don't think many centre-backs will want them two running at them," said Sigurdsson, who returned to face his former club.
"Gomis took his goal well, so hopefully he can continue to improve and stay amongst the goals."
Fitness levels were boosted as eight of the starting XI featured for the full 90 minutes.
And Sigurdsson felt it was an important step in the club's pre-season preparations.
"There were a few tired legs in the changing rooms afterwards," said the Icelandic midfielder.
"It is important to get the minutes under our belts - it will benefit us later in the season if we are really fit and injury-free.
"So no injuries, three goals, a win and another goal for Gomis - it was a good day for us.
"But hopefully we will continue to get better over the next few weeks."
