Plenty to play for, says Williams
30th April 2015
Ashley Williams has revealed the Swans' determination to hold onto eighth spot as the Barclays Premier League heads towards its finale.
Garry Monk's side broke a club record last weekend following a 3-2 win at Newcastle United, which moved the Swans onto 50 points with four games remaining.
That victory means they sit three points ahead of ninth-placed Stoke City, who visit the Liberty this Saturday.
And with the Swans looking to beat their highest finish of ninth in the Premier League, Williams feels Saturday's fixture will be crucial for Monk's men.
"People may think there's nothing to play for, but I can assure everyone that we have plenty to play for," said the Swans skipper.
"The season is not done and dusted. The fact we've got more points now than ever before in the Premier League is a great achievement. But there are 12 more points to play for.
"This game against Stoke is very important. If we finish eighth we'll be really happy with our campaign."
He added: "It's going to be a really good game.
"Stoke have had a really good season, just like we have.
"They are a difficult team to play against. We've lost a few times to them as well as beaten them on occasions."
