Marc Guehi | Unbeaten away record is testament to strength and togetherness

Marc Guehi believes Swansea City’s unbeaten record on the road is down to the strength and togetherness of Steve Cooper’s squad.

The Swans have picked up nine points out of a possible 15 away from home this season, and saw their run without defeat continue courtesy of a late goal from Andre Ayew, which secured a 1-1 draw against Brentford on Tuesday evening.

The Swans have not lost an away league fixture since their loss at Fulham in February.

Having only suffered one league defeat so far this season, Steve Cooper’s men approached the trip to Brentford with confidence, and it was evident in their performance.

Despite dominating possession, the visitors fell behind after Ivan Toney netted his 10th goal in eight games, but sheer grit and determination ensured they got back into the game to seal a point.

“It’s a real good sign that we are still unbeaten on the road, it shows the strength and togetherness that we have when we come away from home," said the on-loan Chelsea defender.

“We defended quite well and their goal came from the one shot and chance they had. We showed resilience and good spirit to come back in the second half and put another performance in.

“It’s a tough one, we are disappointed in a way because we kind of felt like we dropped two points but, at the same time, a point is not the worst thing.

"There are real positives to take from it going forward. When you have that resilience and togetherness throughout the team, the only way is up."

Cooper was forced into making a late change in west London after Ben Cabango felt his hamstring during the warm-up, which saw Kyle Naughton taking his place in the starting line-up.

“Hopefully Ben gets back fit because he’s a really good player and we really need him," added Guehi.

"But Kyle showed his experience against Brentford. I think he was class like everyone else on the pitch.”
