Potter out to improve home form

Swansea City manager Graham Potter wants to kick-start an upturn in results on home turf when Sheffield United visit the Liberty on Saturday (5.30pm).

Having started 2019 with a run of three games away from home, the Swans can now look forward to four of their next five fixtures in all competitions being on home turf in SA1.

Swansea have won five and drawn three of their 13 home league games so far during the 2018-19 campaign, taken fewer points in their own back yard than they have on their travels.

Potter is keen to see the Swans take a greater return from their home fixtures, and reward a fanbase whose patience he has regularly praised since his appointment last summer.

"Results wise we have probably not made the most of playing at home," said Potter.

"Our home form certainly has not been as good, especially when you compare it to our away form.

"It's not what you would want it to be. Obviously it's not for the want of trying, but for different reasons we have not been able to be consistent with our results at home.

"But, if we want to be successful, we need to improve that.

"The supporters have been brilliant with us, I must say, they have stuck by us all the time and helped us in the games.

"Hopefully over the second half of the season we can improve that, build on some positive signs over the past few weeks and start that against a good team in a really good atmosphere."
