James salutes the Jack Army

Daniel James felt the Jack Army's support was a key factor in Swansea City's comeback win over Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.

Graham Potter’s side claimed a rousing 3-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers despite falling behind to a Charlie Mulgrew penalty.

David Raya's own goal drew the Swans level midway through the second half, then strikes from Connor Roberts and Bersant Celina saw Potter's side clinch their first win in four games to move up to eighth in the Championship.

James believes the turnaround was thanks in part to the backing of the home crowd - and is hopeful the Rovers success will trigger an upturn in fortunes in SA1.

“It’s great for us as players to hear the fans getting behind us,” the winger said. “They stuck with us and they are our 12th man.

“Getting that goal in the second half lifted everybody. The crowd helped us go on and get the win.

“We didn’t start well and came in at half-time 1-0 down, which was disappointing. But, we made a few changes, got on top in the second half and took our goals well.

“I think it’s a big lift for us. We haven’t been at our best over the past few weeks. Getting a win is a big high for us, especially at home because our games here are going to be important this season.”
