Liam Cullen felt Swansea City's 2-0 victory over Bristol City was a result and performance that had been coming.

Russell Martin’s side had much the better of the opening half and claimed the lead when Cullen steered in his seventh goal of the season 11 minutes before the break.

But Ntcham made sure of the points when he showed great composure to convert his sixth goal of the campaign.

Cullen’s goal capped a flowing Swansea attack, with the forward’s intelligent movement seeing him run on to Ntcham’s clever reverse pass.

It helped secure an important three points, and the Swans forward had been confident if they built on recent performances they would get their just rewards.

“I think that's probably one of the best feelings we've had after a game this season, personally and as a team," said Cullen.

“The run we've been on hasn't been the nicest for us to go through, but I think today showed that we are still together and we still believe in what we're doing.

“It was just about getting those three points again, and getting that winning feeling back, and hopefully we can carry that on until the end of the season and finish strong.

“I think we've felt in the last three or four performances that this has been coming, and we're getting back to what we are and how we want to play.

“I think Millwall was a really good example of what we're about, although we lost the game, we came away from that game with a lot of positives.

“Once we got that first goal, it was still all about getting that second to give us that cushion. Then when we got the second, we got really comfortable in the game and saw it out really well." 

And the academy product savoured the feeling of scoring for his boyhood club by racing over to the East Stand to celebrate with the supporters.

"Scoring in front of our fans, for this club is amazing. Everyone knows how much it means to me and, hopefully, I can keep contributing until the end of the season," he added.

"Every time I step foot on the pitch, I just want to score goals. For me, any goal for this club is the best feeling, and hopefully there are many more to come."
