Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson looking for home reward against Crystal Palace
24th November 2016
Gylfi Sigurdsson has revealed the Swans' determination to reward the Jack Army with home points against Crystal Palace this weekend after their late setback at Everton.
The Swans looked on course for a first victory since the opening-day win at Burnley when Sigurdsson's first-half penalty put them ahead at Goodison Park.
But Seamus Coleman's 89th minute header denied Bob Bradley picking up his first three points since taking over as Swans boss, with Everton claiming a share of the spoils.
It proved a disappointing finish to what had been a positive performance from the Swans, who were backed by over 1,000 fans on Merseyside.
And Sigurdsson wants to repay the Jack Army for their fantastic following on the road by picking up points at home this weekend when they host the Eagles (3pm).
"We were so disappointed at Everton not just for the team but for the fans too," said Sigurdsson. "They came a long way and they were so close to be celebrating three points.
"But we are going to need them again on Saturday to help us get a results
"It's a really big game against Crystal Palace, and it would be a huge boost if we can pick up three points.
"We haven't won at home yet, and as a squad we want to give our fans something to celebrate at the Liberty because our results there haven't been good enough."
