MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Norwich
5th March 2016
Swansea City are aiming for back-to-back Premier League wins when they face Norwich City on Saturday (3pm).
The Swans welcome Alex Neil's side to the Liberty Stadium in what is a crucial clash between two sides looking to move clear of trouble at the bottom of the table.
Swansea took a huge step forward after a 2-1 away win at Arsenal on Wednesday hauled them six points clear of danger.
Norwich, meanwhile, suffered a narrow defeat against Chelsea at Carrow Road which means they stay in the relegation zone on goal difference after just one win in their last nine league games.
But with just ten matches left to play, victory for either side could go a long way to securing another season in English football's top tier.
WHAT THEY SAID
Alan Curtis: "There's been a buzz in training and you sense that there has been a lift in spirits following the Arsenal win.
"But the real test will come on Saturday because we've set the standard now and we don't want to let ourselves down."
Alex Neil: "If we keep performing how we have been recently and keep creating chances, then eventually the results will come.
"We need to win games to save ourselves, we can't rely on other results - it's a big game on Saturday.
"Swansea have changed their shape, they've altered the way they play but we need to make it about us."
