Jono: Fans can play their part
14th March 2014
Jonathan de Guzman says the Jack Army can play a pivotal role in helping Swansea City to preserve their Premier League status.
The Swans begin their final ten games of the season on Saturday when they welcome struggling West Brom to the Liberty.
Pepe Mel's side sit just one place above the drop zone - level on points with 18th placed Cardiff - following just one win in their last 18 league games.
Swansea's home form has improved in recent weeks, with the side now unbeaten in their last four games on home soil.
But they had to settle for a point last time out against Crystal Palace, despite an impressive first-half showing.
After de Guzman himself opened the scoring, Glenn Murray rescued a point for the visitors as the Swans moved on to 29 points.
And ahead of another crucial game against a struggling side, the Dutchman cited the importance of the fans in helping the club secure top-flight football once more.
"Playing at home should help us a lot," he said. "We know the fans will back us for the whole 90 minutes and hopefully we can finish the chances that we create and win the game.
"They give us that extra strength on the pitch, and every time I play at the Liberty I feel good."
Also in Saturday's edition of Jack Magazine, we take a look back at the 1983-84 season in our 'Swansea City Years' feature, and our latest competition winners collect their prizes.
As well as this, former Swans goalkeeper Roger Freestone looks back at the 1993 Second Division Play-Off Semi-Final against West Brom and we caught up with Marvin Emnes as he reflects on his time at the Liberty so far.
Finally, Roland Lamah is put 'Under the Spotlight', while we also bring you travel information for Tuesday's rearranged trip to Arsenal.
There is all this and much, much more so don't forget to get your hands on a copy from around the Liberty Stadium.
