Momentum is key, says Curtis
4th March 2016
Alan Curtis says momentum is key for Swansea City ahead of Saturday's clash against Norwich (3pm).
The Swans gave their survival chances a huge boost in midweek with a superb win over Arsenal at the Emirates - a result that moved them six points clear of the bottom three.
They now face a crucial clash against a Norwich side who have slipped into the relegation zone after just one win in nine league games.
And Curtis believes that the Swans must build on Wednesday's win over Arsenal ahead of a crucial set of fixtures.
"Psychologically, when you get to the 30-point mark like we have now, it's a big boost," he said.
"There's been a buzz in training and you sense that there has been a lift in spirits following Wednesday's 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.
"We knew these next three games were also going to be defining, but there is still an awful lot of work to do and we have to concentrate on ourselves.
"Wednesday's win should give everyone a boost, we all know the importance of the game but it's one we're are looking forward to."
Curtis was speaking to the media in the absence of Head Coach Francesco Guidolin, who is still in hospital with a chest infection and will miss Saturday's game at the Liberty.
"Francesco has picked the team for Saturday, as he did on Wednesday," he said.
"The players who came in performed very well and that is a great problem for us to have.
"I spoke to him after Wednesday's game and he certainly sounded a lot brighter, a lot stronger."
