Swans targeting Fab finish, says Lukasz
29th April 2015
Just days after setting a new club record, Lukasz Fabianski insists the Swans are targeting yet more historic headlines before the season is over.
Last weekend's 3-2 win at Newcastle United moved the Swans onto 50 points in the Barclays Premier League - the highest tally achieved by the club since it's promotion to the top-flight in 2011.
But the Polish international insists there's no easing up as the Swans look to finish the season strongly, along with writing a new chapter in the club's history books.
"This season is not over yet. The focus is on getting more points and finishing as high as possible," said Fabianski, who has enjoyed a successful season since his free transfer from Arsenal last summer.
"It's nice to be remembered as someone who helped the club create club history. The club has never finished as high as eighth in the Premier League so we would love to do that."
On Saturday the Swans host a Stoke City side that sits just three points behind them in the table, with both teams sharing the same goal difference.
The Potters are looking to break their own Premier League points record with Mark Hughes' side trailing last season's total of 50 by three points.
With plenty at stake, it promises to be a close encounter at the Liberty.
And Fabianski insists the Swans are determined to strengthen their hold of eighth spot.
"We've worked very hard this season and played very well, so we don't want to slide down a position at this stage," added the 30-year-old, who has kept 11 clean sheets this term.
"The manager would not allow any complacency, but the players are a very honest group and we know we have to work very hard for every point in this league.
"Within the group, especially Ash, we talk about maintaining standards and giving everything we have to ensure that we represent the club in the right way.
"Everyone is determined to finish the season strongly.
"People outside of the club may look at Swansea and think because we are safe that we have nothing to play for now. We don't see it like that at all. We have 12 points to play for, and we want to get as many points as we can for our supporters.
"We all have high standards and within the group we have a strong mentality. No-one will be taking their foot off the pedal until the final whistle in the final game of the season."
