Jamal Lowe has set his sights on more “scrappy” goals after his brace sent Swansea City up to second in the Championship courtesy of a 2-1 win over Watford.

Steve Cooper’s side came from behind at the Liberty Stadium to clinch victory as the Swans started 2021 off on a winning note.

Despite falling behind to Tom Cleverley’s strike, the Swans were back on level terms just before the break as Lowe collected Korey Smith’s pass before curling his effort past Ben Foster and in off the post.

The hosts were rewarded for their efforts when Lowe nodded home Smith’s perfect cross from close range to complete their comeback.

It was a sixth goal in as many games for Lowe, who took his tally for the season up to eight.

And the 26-year-old was delighted with the manner of his goals – but more so the latter strike.

“My second one was more of a striker's goal,” said Lowe.

“Those are the types of goals that I want to add to my game. Not every goal can be nice on the eye – you’ve got to score some scrappy ones. You appreciate the nice ones even more but, for me, the goals like the second one are where you add up your numbers. You get in the six-yard box and you have a chance to score.

“Obviously, moving from the wing to up front - it's in my head to make sure I'm doing that side and not trying to score fancy goals. The tap-ins, the headers, the bobblers - you must have those to get results.

“I scored a nice goal that I'd love to score every week and one that's less appealing on the eye, but I'll take that every week, all day long.

“More goals is always a target of mine. I'm just looking to get as many as physically possible and win as many games. If I don't score another goal this season and we get promoted then happy days.”
