Jay Fulton | Away form a real positive

Jay Fulton believes Swansea City’s resilience on the road could “set things up nicely” for Steve Cooper’s side as they head into December with an unbeaten away record.

The Swans picked up another point on Tuesday night as Fulton’s first-half strike was cancelled out by Karlan Grant.

The stalemate stretches the Swans’ record away from the Liberty to four wins and five draws, with Cooper’s side yet to taste defeat on their travels so far.

They are the only team in the EFL yet to be beaten on away soil, while just Liverpool and Sheffield United the other teams in the top four divisions with an unbeaten away record.

Despite having tasted four defeats in nine games at the Liberty, Fulton feels the Swans’ success outside of SA1 can provide a big boost as the season progresses.

“We’re still unbeaten away from home this season,” said the midfielder.

“If we can keep that going for as long as possible then it can only set things up nicely for us.

“Away from home, we’ve been very resilient and stayed in games. You only have to look at the games against Leeds and Wigan when we scored late winners to see that.”

Fulton fired the Swans into the lead with a powerful effort in the 18th minute to record his first of the campaign.

Grant’s leveller four minutes before the break prevented the Swans from picking up another away win, but Fulton was pleased with the outcome.

“I think the game was pretty even, to be honest,” he added. “They probably had a bit more of the ball more than us.

“After scoring the first goal, we would have hoped to at least get to half-time with a lead. But in the end, getting a point away from home – we’re happy with that.”
