Sigurdsson: Swans making positive steps
3rd February 2016
Gylfi Sigurdsson believes the Swans will remain hugely positive despite being denied victory by West Brom's last-gasp equaliser.
Francesco Guidolin's side looked to be heading for a third consecutive victory after Sigurdsson struck his sixth goal of the season at the Hawthorns.
The Swans were just moments away from moving above the Baggies on goal difference before Salomon Rondon fired home in stoppage-time just seconds after Sigurdsson had cleared Darren Fletcher's effort off his own line.
It proved a harsh finale for the visitors, but Sigurdsson insists the Swans remain upbeat following their recent upturn in performances and results.
"Going into the final few moments with a 1-0 lead and then to leave West Brom with just a point is disappointing," said the Icelandic international.
"But we're playing a lot better and seven points from the last three games is a good return.
"We are picking up points and that's a hugely positive sign. We are unbeaten in the last three and are building momentum."
The draw at West Brom moved the Swans onto 26 points from 24 games - five points above third-bottom Newcastle United, who face Everton on Wednesday night.
Sigurdsson feels the team is starting to show it's true quality in performances which have seen them return to the quick passing and pressing style.
And with home games against Crystal Palace and Southampton next on the fixture list, Sigurdsson hopes the Swans will make use of home advantage.
"We are playing a lot better than what we were a few months ago. We weren't picking up points and were not creating chances or playing well," he added.
"But we seemed to have got our confidence back with some good performances and points.
"We have a few home games coming up and we would look to get at least four points from them.
"Hopefully we can continue our good run on Saturday."
