Swans look to set the record straight at Stoke
17th October 2014
The Swans head to Stoke City on Sunday looking to end their Barclays Premier League duck with victory at the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke remain unbeaten against the Swans in three Premier League outings on their own patch, with the Potters winning two and drawing one.
Garry Monk guided the Swans to their first point in the division at the Britannia last February in only his second game in charge since taking over on an interim basis.
Now the Swans look to go one further this weekend by picking up all three points.
And left-back Neil Taylor revealed the Swans are determined to end their winless run in the Potteries.
"We've never won there, but this is the right time to," said the Wales international. "Last year we got a point there and could have won.
"Apart from Everton, we haven't won since the last international break so we want that win to put us back on track again.
"We haven't played badly whatsoever, and we are unbeaten in three league and cup games, but we'll be looking to get a win on Sunday."
Taylor was one of nine Swans in action over the international period as he - and Swans team-mate Ashley Williams - helped Wales top Group B following a draw with Bosnia and victory over Cyprus.
Also involved for their nations were Jonjo Shelvey, Lukasz Fabianski, Federico Fernandez, Wilfried Bony, Ki Sung-Yueng and Tom Carroll.
And Taylor insists the Swans' international contingent will be fresh and raring to go at the Britannia.
"These (international) games take a lot out of you, but come Sunday we'll be fine," added Taylor. "It helps the game being on Sunday because you've got an extra day to recover.
"It's on TV, we want to get back on track with Swansea and get the win."
