Swansea City record holder Jack Cork ready for another "big shift" against Norwich City
4th March 2016
Jack Cork has vowed to keep putting in the hard yards after his "big shift" against Arsenal set a new record at the Swans.
Club GPS data revealed the midfielder ran 14km at the Emirates on Wednesday night - the highest distance recorded by a Swans player in all competitions this season.
It helped the Swans go the distance as goals from Wayne Routledge and Ashley Williams claimed three crucial points in North London.
And Cork's energetic display typified the Swans' performance against Arsene Wenger's title-chasing side.
"It was a really tough game at the Emirates. Everyone worked their socks off and I think we got what we deserved in the end," said Cork, who provided the assist for Routledge's equaliser.
"I wouldn't be surprised if a few more players run around as much as I did because Arsenal pass the ball very well.
"It was a big shift. I was very tired on Thursday - it has been a demanding few days having played Tottenham a few days before that."
After a tireless display against the Gunners, Cork - whose wife Freya gave birth to their second son Eden last month - is ready to run himself into the ground again when Norwich City visit the Liberty on Saturday (3pm).
"With the consecutive away games against Spurs and Arsenal, the team stayed for a few days in London, so I had a good night's sleep before the Arsenal game, so perhaps that is the key!" he joked.
"My wife has been great with the baby, so I've not had to be up in the middle of the night too many times.
"So now I'm feeling refreshed and ready to go again when we play Norwich.
"It's a crucial game for us. We know if we can win that game then it moves us closer to where we want to be."
