Michael Obafemi is confident the goals will soon flow for Swansea City – and himself – despite consecutive goalless draws.

The Swans were held 0-0 by Millwall in SA1, just four days after a stalemate with Hull.

Russell Martin’s side dominated once again against the Lions, but couldn’t find that finishing touch despite seeing Jamie Paterson, Liam Walsh and Obafemi go close.

It was Obafemi – on for Olivier Ntcham just past the hour mark - who had the best chance of the game, controlling Walsh’s perfect pass before racing into the box only to shoot just wide.

But the Republic of Ireland international is confident the goals will flow soon.

“The lads were a bit disappointed about the result, but ultimately, we played well and we had a lot of chances – especially my one at the end, which I should be putting away,” said the striker.

“So we’re a little disappointed, but you can see that it’s clicking, all the boys are together and the results will come.

“You can see the work from the training pitch being taken into the game. We work a lot on movement and getting off the shoulder of the defenders, and unfortunately it didn’t come off this time, but it’s a matter of time before it does.

“We are happy, I know the fans are enjoying watching the team play, because we know it will click.

“Nothing is going to change in terms of the way we play.

“We are defensively sound – we’ve had two clean sheets in a row – and I know we’ve not scored in those games, but we know the chances will go into the net.”

Obafemi’s introduction to the game was met by a huge chant by the Jack Army – their new version of the Wilfried Bony song – and it proved a great moment for the 21-year-old.

A big fan of the Ivorian, who struck 38 times in 96 appearances over two separate spells in SA1, Obafemi is looking forward to repaying their gesture with plenty of goals.

“It was my second appearance and I’m looking forward to getting some starts in and putting a full shift in for the lads,” he added.

“On the pitch I’m loving it. The lads have really made me feel welcome. Off the pitch, we have lovely scenery here, the people are amazing, and it was great to hear my name being sung. I am really thankful to the fans for that.

“I loved watching Wilfried Bony play, and hopefully I can do as well as he did – or even better – here.

“I’m looking forward to scoring goals for the Swans.”
