James not giving up on play-off dream

Daniel James knows Swansea City are considered a long-shot for the Championship play-offs, but insists no-one in Graham Potter's squad has given up on a top-six finish.

The Swans head to QPR on Saturday looking to kick on after an excellent week yielded a trio of impress victories in SA1 as Brentford, Middlesbrough and Stoke were seen off in style.

Despite those strong results and performances, Swansea remain nine points adrift of the play-offs with just 18 points left on the table for Potter's men.

They have also lost their last six games away from home, but if they can record just a second win at Loftus Road in 22 attempts it would only build momentum and confidence over the final stretch of a gruelling campaign.

And James wants the Swans to put the pressure on the teams above them by continuing their winning run.

“We’ve had three great wins this week and, hopefully, we can get another one on Saturday," said the winger.

“It’s been a tough week but we’ve come through it. The football we’ve played has been excellent and we’re going to go into every game believing we can win.

"Our aim now is to get as high in the table as we can and have a great finish to the season; I think we can do that.

“We’ve got six games left and nothing’s impossible. We’re going to strive to get there.

"We’ve got to win as many games as possible and hope that results go our way, but our aim is always to get there."
