Kasey Palmer "buzzing" to open his Swansea City account
Kasey Palmer was “buzzing” after opening his Swansea City account with the clinching goal against Stoke City.
The midfielder, on loan from Bristol City, showed bravery to beat advancing keeper Angus Gunn to a bouncing ball, taking a whack for his troubles in the process.
It put the seal on an impressive Swansea performance, and sets them up for Saturday’s Liberty meeting with Blackburn Rovers.
And, having found the net on just his second Swansea appearances, Palmer has his sights set on continuing to contribute during a gruelling run of fixtures.
"It's perfect to come on, score and get three points. I'm buzzing for myself and the team as well,” he said.
"I did see the goalkeeper, but I didn't have much choice but to go for the ball. I got there before him and just nodded it over the top of him.
“I'm buzzing it went in because I feel I have fitted in well, and I want to make sure I help the team.
“The boys have been great and very welcoming. All of the senior boys have also been good to talk to and it's been nice. I've found it quite easy to settle in.
"You could that the boys who came in against Stoke did well and that's what you need.
“You need a big squad and rotation because there's so many games. Hopefully, we can carry on this form on Saturday."
