Players are full of confidence, says Curtis
22nd January 2016
Alan Curtis insists the Swans head to Everton on Sunday (1.30pm) buoyed by the recent home win over Watford.
The Swans visit Goodison Park on the back of that crucial 1-0 victory at the Liberty - a result which moved them out of the Barclays Premier League's bottom three.
They now travel to Merseyside with the aim of securing back-to-back league wins for the first time since May, facing an Everton side that have won just once in their last nine league outings.
"It was a great win (on Monday)," said Curtis. "In terms of the three points it was massive.
"There's been a bit more of a buzz in training this week but we know we have to win games - it's as simple as that.
"The confidence that we gained from the Watford game will put us in good stead but we know the dangers Everton present going forward with the players they have.
"But we will look to exploit their weaknesses too and hopefully we can take advantage of a lapse in concentration at the back."
Sunday's game will also see Francesco Guidolin in the away dugout for the first time since taking over as the club's new Head Coach.
The experienced Italian - who will work alongside Curtis - met the squad this week and oversaw his first training session at Faiwood on Wednesday.
"Francesco addressed the players this week and spoke really warmly and passionately," added Curtis.
"He spoke about what he wants and expects, but he's also very reserved and measured - much like Michael Laudrup when he was here.
"But I'll be an ally to him in terms of the knowledge of the players and the league itself, and I'm on hand to assist with anything he needs."
