Steve Cooper says Swansea City cannot wait to get started as they prepare to kick off the new Championship season against Hull on Saturday (3pm).

Just shy of 13 weeks after rounding off the 2018-19 campaign with a draw at Blackburn, the Swans will return to competitive action against the Tigers in what will be head coach Cooper’s first game at the helm.

Swansea have taken six wins from six games during a pre-season that has pleased the new boss.

But, with the opening weekend finally here, he is eager to get down to the serious business with points at stake.

“The season cannot come quick enough, we just want to get going,” said Cooper.

“We are at home and we will be committed and focused on our own game.

“It promises to be an exciting game, Hull want to play an expansive game too but we have to get our own game right and if we do that we can be competitive in every game we play.

“The players are very focused, very excited. Training has been excellent again.

“We will finish off our preparations and we just want to play in a way that connects us to the fans and gives them a team they can be proud of and get behind to help us get over the line.”
