Jamal Lowe | Results will come if we work hard and commit to the plan

Jamal Lowe believes his match fitness is improving all the time and is looking to help Swansea City turn around their start to the season.

The forward, who joined on a season-long loan from Bournemouth on deadline day, is in his second spell as a Swans player.

He previously enjoyed a successful stint during the behind-closed-doors 2020-21 campaign, before moving to the Cherries early the following term.

The forward started against Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers, but admits he's building his way up to full match fitness after seeing limited action in pre-season.

However, he feels he’s getting sharper with every minute on the pitch and is hoping to have a real impact for the Swans.

“It’s been a tough pre-season for me, I didn’t play any games, which is hard, but I feel like I’m slowly getting there and the best way to do it is in games," said the striker.

“It won’t take much longer and I’ll be fully fit and firing. Hopefully, I can bring some goals and wins to the camp.

Every game is a big game. We’re only a few games in so the table can quickly change.

“As a group we feel confident that the results will come if we perform the way we need to, run as hard as we need to, stick to the plan and commit to the style of play.

“We need patience and confidence. We need to stick together.

“It’s just that confidence and the ability to not get fazed at whatever stage of the game we’re in, even if we’re under the cosh for a bit. I think once that comes, the confidence will grow and you’ll see more from every player.

“A good performance and a win is what everyone wants and we’ll be working our hardest to get that.”

For Lowe, the thought of a possible return to SA1 had always appealed and – after spending much of his first spell playing with no fans present – he’s looking forward to a full campaign playing in front of the Jack Army.

“It’s good to be back. I’m really happy and I’m looking forward to getting more minutes and raising my fitness levels,” said the striker.

“I really enjoyed my first spell, and I enjoyed living in Swansea. The first time I left, it was out of my hands, it wasn’t really in my plans to leave because I was really enjoying my football, but such is the game, sometimes it’s out of your hands a bit.

“So to come back was always something that was in the back of my mind, and when it came about I was ready for it.

“It’ll be nice to play in front of a full stadium at home because for most of my previous time here there were no fans at the games. I'm looking forward to it."
