Honest Roberts targets improvement

First team

Connor Roberts is eyeing up a strong final run-in for himself and Swansea City after admitting he does not feel he has been firing on all cylinders recently.

Having been handed his first-team chance last season, Roberts has become an integral figure for club and country and has 42 appearances to his name for the Swans and Wales this campaign.

He has been one of a number of young players to shine under Graham Potter as the Swans have adapted to the rigours of life back in the Championship.

Nevertheless, the 23-year-old - who has deservedly taken a number of plaudits over the course of the season - says he has been disappointed with some of his individual performances of late.

And, being typically honest ahead of the trip to West Brom, Roberts feels it is time for himself and the Swans squad to find their best form individually and collectively as the countdown to end of the campaign nears.

"I don't really feel I have been firing lately. I think at the start of the season I was playing well, I scored a couple of goals and was getting forward a lot more but I think as a team we had maybe stalled a little bit in recent weeks, and my performance has done so with that," he said.

"I have not been as good as I would like and that means I have been disappointed lately but it's about getting on with it, keeping a smile on my face and making sure this does not last long and I can forget about it and move on to the next game and performing to the level I know I can.

"I can't deny I have been disappointed with how I am performing, but you have to keep on plugging away and hopefully the good times will come back.

"I have to push myself, you cannot settle for less. I have to be able to feel pleased with how I am performing, and even at the start of the season I wanted to improve and get better.

"I've had a little bit of a dip but the only way that is going to work is by working hard and helping the team push on and, as the weeks push on, I hope myself and the team can perform to our best."
