'Let's keep the ball rolling'

Matt Grimes believes the Swans can end their two-month wait for an away win on Saturday when they face Rotherham United.

Graham Potter’s side head to the ASSEAL New York Stadium this weekend on the back of successive home wins over Blackburn Rovers and Reading.

The Swans sit two points off the play-offs after 15 games, knowing victory could see them rise to fifth in the table.

Grimes has first-hand experience of Saturday’s opponents having played – and lost – twice against the Millers during a loan spell with Northampton Town last season.

Rotherham, who sit two points above the drop zone, have lost just once in their seven home games this season, while the Swans are targeting a first away triumph since beating Millwall 2-1 on September 1.

But Grimes believes the Swans head to Yorkshire confident of sealing a third win on their travels.

“I played against them twice last season and lost. They were too good for League One and deservedly got promoted,” said Grimes, who scored four goals in 44 games at Northampton last term.

“It will be a difficult game because they are a well-organised team and have a strong record at home.

“We are looking to get our first away win for a while, although we have played well at Stoke, Wigan and Middlesbrough.

“We are going into every game full of confidence. We’ve won our last two games and momentum is a big thing in this league, so we will look to keep it going.”
