Kristoffer Peterson pushing for Leeds involvement

Kristoffer Peterson feels Swansea City can head to face Leeds United with a spring in their step, and hopes he has done enough to force his way into Steve Cooper’s plans for the top-of-the-table clash.

Peterson, a summer signing from Dutch club Heracles Almelo, scored his first goal for the Swans by opening the scoring in Wednesday’s 6-0 win over Cambridge United in the Carabao Cup.

The Sweden international has had to be patient following his arrival in SA1, and missed out on the wins over QPR and Birmingham as he adjusts to his new surroundings.

But the 24-year-old looked to be growing in confidence against the Us, and now has his sights set on the mouthwatering Championship clash at Elland Road.

“We’re having a good run and hope that will continue,” he said.

“I think we should now approach the weekend’s match against Leeds with a lot of confidence.

“Every single player in the squad has shown that they want to be involved in this team. It’s not the easiest squad to get into at the moment.

“For me personally, I wanted to show the manager and the coaching staff that I want to be involved again and hopefully I did that, but we will see.

“Everyone is doing their job to make it hard for the gaffer and that has its own rewards as we then push each other as players to be on their toes.”
