Steve Cooper | We are in a good rhythm

Steve Cooper believes Swansea City are finding a good rhythm as the new season starts to settle in for the long haul, and wants to see it continue against Cambridge United in the Carabao Cup tonight (7.45pm).

Head coach Cooper remains unbeaten in charge of the Swans after six games in all competitions.

There have been five wins and one draw as Swansea enjoy a best start to a season since 1978, while league results thus far have ensured Cooper has enjoyed the best beginning to the tenure of a Swans boss in the club’s 107-year history.

But the 39-year-old has made clear his eyes are only trained on the future rather than how he and his team stack up with those of the past.

And with tonight’s second-round clash coming just a few days before a mouth-watering top of the Championship clash at Leeds, Cooper wants there to be no let-up in terms of focus and performance from his players.

“It’s step by step, game by game and we will try and put the players in the best possible place to deliver,” he said.

“There is a momentum and a feelgood factor at the moment, we are confident and rightly so.

“But the only way to keep that going is through continuing to put in the hard work, continuing to train and prepare thoroughly to allow us to perform.

“That will be the goal for this game, as it is for every game.

“We have got a good rhythm at the moment, we want that to continue to build.”
