Korey Smith believes the goals will soon flow for Swansea City, but knows he and his team-mates have to find a clinical streak.

Midfielder Smith returned to action in the Carabao Cup defeat at Brighton on Wednesday, after missing nine games with a calf injury picked up in the opening league game at Blackburn.

The Swans had a wealth of chances at the Amex Stadium - with the midfielder and Liam Cullen being denied by the woodwork - but failed to convert as a first-half Aaron Connolly double saw the Premier League highflyers progress to the fourth round.

But the 30-year-old believes there are positives to take from the fixture heading into the side’s home clash against Huddersfield on Saturday (3pm).

“The boys did great to score three goals against Luton,” said Smith. “With the chances that we are making now, I think the goals are there.

“Once that kicks in, we can start winning some games and putting a run together. That’s the next goal.

"Unfortunately, we’re out of the cup, it would have been nice to have had a longer run.

“Brighton are a very good team and are high on confidence right now, maybe that’s what edged it with their chances.

“On another day, we probably would have scored three or four. That was the frustrating thing for us, but the positives are that we made those chances.

“We need to move forward and start taking those chances. I’m now hoping to get some minutes in the league, and hoping to get some wins and start moving us up the table.”
