Naughton hoping for more home comforts
3rd March 2017
Kyle Naughton insists the Swans are determined to bag a hat-trick of consecutive home wins this Saturday, and continue Burnley's winless streak on the road.
Paul Clement's side sit two points above the relegation zone going into a crucial period of fixtures which starts with Burnley's visit to the Liberty (3pm).
The following fixtures see the Swans travel to Hull City and Bournemouth before hosting Middlesbrough - all teams battling the drop - on April 2.
Having beaten Southampton and defending champions Leicester City on home soil in recent games, the Swans target a third successive win in SA1 when Burnley arrive in South Wales.
While the Clarets have the fourth-best home record in the league, Sean Dyche's side are yet to win on their travels in 12 attempts with just two draws to show for their efforts.
The Swans are only one of three teams to have won at Turf Moor this season, with Leroy Fer's strike the difference on the opening day of the campaign.
And Naughton believes victory on Saturday would be the perfect start to an important batch of fixtures.
"Burnley have played really well at their place this season - they are among the strongest teams at home in the Premier League," said Naughton.
"Their record on the road is something they will want to change because they are yet to win an away game.
"Our results at home have picked up recently and it's up to us to continue building our form at the Liberty and ensure they aren't celebrating a first away win on Saturday afternoon.
"Of course, we are well aware of the games ahead are crucial to us, but in terms of focus and preparation then the gaffer really drills home the 'one game at a time' message.
"Burnley will be a really tough game for us, but if we listen to the gaffer and give our all then I'm sure we can get the result we are after."
