Jack Cork: Swansea City must build on first home win
9th December 2016
Jack Cork has urged Swansea City to build on the foundations put down in their last home game when they entertain Sunderland this weekend.
The Swans have been left licking wounds after last Saturday's heavy defeat away at Tottenham Hotspur.
But Cork believes the disappointment of White Hart Lane will not wipe out all the confidence gained in the Swans' previous fixture on home soil.
Bob Bradley's team chalked up one of the most remarkable victories in Swans history as they won an undulating game against Crystal Palace 5-4 courtesy of Fernando Llorente's last-gasp double.
And Cork believes Bradley's players can take heart from what went on against Palace as they prepare for the Sunderland test.
"I felt the home win had been coming for a while before the Palace game and I think we have been unfortunate in some games this season," Cork tells this weekend's edition of Jack Magazine.
"But it was nice to get that first home win out of the way and hopefully that can set us up for the games coming up.
"It is going to be a big month for us. We are playing a few six-point games and it's down to us to make sure we get something from them because these are games which give us a chance to push up the table."
