Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson delighted with scoring form
8th February 2016
Gylfi Sigurdsson expressed his delight with his latest strike against Crystal Palace - then vowed to keep up his scoring form.
The Icelandic international took his tally for the season to seven when he curled home the opening goal against the Eagles with a fine 20-yard free-kick.
It was a fifth in his last six games for Sigurdsson, who also scored in the midweek draw at West Brom.
Palace would claim a share of the spoils, though, when Scott Dann fired home from close range while Sigurdsson's free-kick was tipped wide by Wayne Hennessey late on.
And Sigurdsson revealed he's determined to continue his rich vein of form in front of goal.
"It took a while for me to get going with goals, but I've really hit some scoring form," said Sigurdsson, who had scored just twice this season before the New Year.
"I felt confident taking the free-kick and I got a clean connection, which I was happy with. It gave us a good start, and we went close to adding another but we just couldn't break through again.
"Hopefully I can continue scoring, but the most important thing is to win games."
The draw means the Swans are now four unbeaten in the league ahead of Saturday's home game with Southampton.
Francesco Guidolin's side are four points above third-bottom Norwich City, with the Swans hoping to extend that gap when the Saints visit SA1.
"It was disappointing to draw against Palace, particularly as we were ahead, but we are performing a lot better and that's encouraging," added Sigurdsson.
"We had a few chances that were blocked on the line while their keeper made a great save from my free-kick.
"But we've got to look ahead to the next home game with Southampton and keep our form going.
"We're four unbeaten now, so hopefully we can get three big points at the Liberty and move us further away from the relegation zone."
