Potter: The signs are good

Graham Potter feels the signs are good for Swansea City and has challenged his players to reproduce the manner of their performance at Norwich on a regular basis.

The Swans performed strongly and gave a good account of themselves against the in-form Championship leaders, but were left to rue what might have been as Emi Buendia's fierce strike settled the contest.

Nevertheless, the display was a big step forward from Swansea's previous away outing at Sheffield Wednesday and was praised by manager Potter as one for his players to be proud of.

The 43-year-old believes it is another sign that things are heading in the right direction, but wants to see similar display - but hopefully with a different final outcome - with more regularity.

"The challenge for us is to be able to carry on doing that and do it at a consistent level," said Potter.

"We have been improving over the season but just not able to get that consistency in results.

"But you can see what we are trying to do and you can see the effort and quality of the players.

"We just have to keep working. I think the signs are good.

"It's a young team, a team of players who are making their way in the competition.

"So we are pleased with how the group is developing, but we know that you can always improve."
