Josh Tymon | We need to get back on track

Josh Tymon says Swansea City have to quickly raise the standard of their performances as they prepare to host Stoke City at the Stadium tonight (8pm).

The Swans host the Potters looking to bounce back from defeats against Queens Park Rangers and Middlesbrough, with the display in the second of those being described as “unacceptable” by head coach Luke Williams.

Left-back Tymon, who is hoping to prove his fitness following a weekend knock ahead of the meeting with his former club, admits Swansea have fallen short of the level they showed in wins against the likes of Hull City, Sunderland and Cardiff City.

And the defender says it’s important they quickly get back on track.

“We’ve shown signs of what we can do, like the Cardiff game. I’ve never experienced anything like that in my career,” he said.

“As soon as we came out to warm-up, it felt crazy and after that second goal the noise and emotion was unlike anything I had heard or felt on a pitch.

“But I would be lying if I sat here and said performances have not dipped since then. We have played teams fighting for their lives and we have not shown the aggression and intensity we needed to.

“We have dropped off, we have shown what we can do when we are on it, we’ve beaten teams in the play-off hunt and we need to get back on it and quickly because there’s no excuses.”
