Jay urges Swans to enjoy final run-in

Jay Fulton wants Swansea City to go out and enjoy the final week of the season, insisting there is no pressure on them as rank outsiders for a Championship play-off berth.

The 10th-placed Swans are the lowest remaining side in the division who can still finish the season with a top-six finish thanks to their Easter Monday win at Ipswich.

Graham Potter's men are five points off with just three games to play, but have won five of their last six to ensure there is still something to play for heading into the final week of the season even if their chances look remote.

The Scot produced a fine display at Portman Road, winning a key challenge in the lead up to Wayne Routledge's winner.

And - regardless of what the final outcome is - the midfielder wants to see the Swans finish the season with their strong form intact.

"For us over the last 10 games it has been about how many points we can get, and trying to win every game and we will keep going and see where that takes us," said Fulton.

"There is a chance for a number of teams to get that final play-off spot. There are a fair few teams after it so all we can do is try and win. If it takes us there, that will be great. If not, we will look to kick on again next season.

"I don't think many will expect us to get it but every season there is a team that comes with a late run, so you never know.

"There's no pressure on us, it's just about three games. We have two at home, where our form has been good but we just have to mind our own business."

Swansea return to the Liberty for the next two games, having won their previous six league fixtures in front of the SA1 faithful.

Hull and Derby are next up, and Fulton is looking forward to getting back down to it on home turf.

"Things seem to be clicking at the Liberty at the moment, with the fans, the atmosphere and the way we have been playing as a team. We are enjoying playing there," he said.

"We want to try and finish it off with two more wins there, the fans are always good.

"If they see us putting in the work, that's all they ask for and they get right behind us when we give them that. So to finish off by getting another couple of wins and good performances would be great."
