Sam Surridge eager for more Swansea City action

Sam Surridge hopes to get more game time under his belt against Northampton, after making an encouraging Swansea City debut.

The 21-year-old striker joined on loan from Bournemouth earlier this week, and pulled on a Swansea shirt for the first time as a second-half substitute in the draw at Derby.

He showcased his aerial ability, while also producing a lovely roll of his marker before firing wide from one promising attack.

And the forward is already eager to get back into action when Northampton visit the Liberty in the first round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

“I loved it. Making your debut for any club is a special moment,” he said.

“It was a brilliant point for us away from home. We probably could’ve won it and we’re disappointed not to, but it’s still a good one gained.

“Hopefully, I can make my first start in the cup. I will be ready if I’m called upon.

“Cup competitions are always good for clubs in the Championship because you can potentially gain recognition for beating teams higher up the ladder and it’s always good for confidence if you can put a run together.

“Of course, you have to beat teams like Northampton to earn the right to do that. Hopefully, we can do that on Tuesday and build from there.

“As for myself, it provides me with further opportunities to get some game time under my belt. With a bit of luck, it will be a chance to show what I can do.”
