Sunderland away Matt Grimes

Matt Grimes thanked Swansea City's travelling Jacks for their fantastic support after his side delivered a 3-1 victory at Sunderland.

Around 700 Swansea City fans made the 674-mile round trip to the north east to back the Swans on Wearside on Saturday, and the club captain felt they played their part in helping ensure the three points went back to south Wales.

The away end at the Stadium of Light is high up in the top of the stand, but those in Swansea colours made their voices heard despite being considerably outnumbered in a crowd of over 40,000.

“The fans were unbelievable … unbelievable!” said the skipper.

“Honestly, hats off to them for making this trip. They’ve given up their weekend and come all this way.

“I thought they were fantastic and got us through the times when they were creating chances.

“We’re so thankful for them and they make more of a difference than they probably realise. We are so pleased we've been able to give them a result."
