Sam Surridge is looking to banish the demons of his previous Kenilworth Road visit and replace it with some Christmas cheer this weekend.

Swansea City head to Luton Town on Saturday hoping to back up last weekend’s home win over Middlesbrough with a fifth away win of the campaign.

For Surridge, it is an opportunity to erase the memory of his last outing at Luton, which ended in an 8-2 defeat while on loan at Yeovil Town in 2017.

Now he returns with the Swans, for whom he’s scored seven times in 21 appearances so far during his season-long loan.

“We need to build on the momentum from the performance against Middlesbrough at Kenilworth Road,” said the England Under-21 striker, who scored in the Swans' 3-1 victory over Boro.

“Before the Middlesbrough match we said we must win and we went out and did that so we will approach the Luton match with the same mentality.

“It’s going to be a hard game. I’ve played there a couple of times so I know what it is like playing there.

“We’re very aware how quickly the Christmas period is approaching, which made the Middlesbrough victory even more important.

“A win on Saturday will set us in good stead ahead of the busy schedule.”
