Joel Piroe | I want to kick on and keep scoring goals

Joel Piroe is hoping to continue his good form in front of goal for Swansea City, after picking up his second goal in three games against Stoke City.

The summer signing replaced Yan Dhanda in the first half against the Potters, as head coach Russell Martin called upon the Dutchman shortly after the visitors had taken the lead.

Piroe headed home for the Swans in the 73rd minute, getting on the end of a Jake Bidwell cross to steer the ball past Josef Bursik.

For the striker, who penned a three-year deal earlier in the summer, it followed on from his fine finish in the Carabao Cup win at Reading a week earlier

And he hopes he can continue to build his confidence and help his team-mates by finding the net moving forward.

“Of course, I hope to kick on and keep scoring goals,” he said.

“It’s my job as striker to score as many goals as possible for the team so that we can win the games.

“We gave the goals away too easily this time, and that made the game a lot harder for us.”

Despite the tough loss, Piroe is looking ahead to the Swans’ trip to Bristol City on Friday, and insists there is plenty of improvement to come from Martin’s men.

“You start at 0-0 again,” added Piroe. “So that means we just have to keep our heads up, stick together and work on the plan.

“We want to sharpen up, tighten up and start a good series of games from here."
