Jay Fulton | It's a squad effort, we all need to contribute

Jay Fulton believes it will be vital for everyone in the Swansea City squad to play their part if they are to have a successful campaign.

Fulton got on the scoresheet in Tuesday’s victory over Stoke, with Yan Dhanda and Ryan Manning among those to impress as head coach Steve Cooper shuffled his squad amidst a run of seven games in 22 days.

Substitute Kasey Palmer also marked his second Swans appearance with a goal as he bravely headed in late on in the 2-0 win over the Potters.

Cooper has spoken of the importance the squad will play over the course of a gruelling, congested campaign.

And Fulton feels the performance against Stoke underlined that Swansea have a number of players who can contribute.

"It's difficult when you’re not playing, but the other boys in the squad have been playing well,” he said.

“Yan's not played at all this season, but he's come in and played well. Then Kasey came off the bench and got a goal.

“It's difficult when you're not playing; everybody wants to play, but then we've got to be a squad.

"It's going to be a squad effort; everyone is going to play their part during this tough schedule. Whoever plays must work together to try to get points on the board.”

Fulton’s goal against the Potters was his first of the season, and will live long in the memory as he instinctively adjusted to steer in a loose ball with the outside of his right foot.

“Personally, to get a goal is always nice,” he added.

“I was originally going to hit it with my left foot, but I just tried to hit it goalwards. Thankfully, it went in.”
