Taylor enjoying sweet taste of success
6th April 2015
Neil Taylor saluted a fine period for club and country after the Swans moved to within touching distance of a new points record.
The Swans booked consecutive victories after they followed up a 1-0 win at Aston Villa with a 3-1 triumph against Hull at the Liberty.
Those came either side of the international break, with Taylor involved in Wales' stunning 3-0 win in Israel as the nation's Euro 2016 qualification hopes were given a massive lift.
And with the Swans now just two points short of setting a new club record points tally in the Barclays Premier League, Taylor is enjoying a fine run on both domestic and international fronts.
"It's been a great couple of weeks," said Taylor. "We beat Villa before the international and then we got a great result with Wales. So to get another win in the Premier League rounded off a massive few weeks for Swansea and Wales.
"Winning is a great habit to have, and we've certainly had that habit on a club and country level.
"The marker we need to get past is 47 points and we should really get past that now. But we want to do that as early as possible and set a big total if we can do."
Ki Sung-Yueng broke the deadlock at the Liberty before Bafe Gomis volleyed home a spectacular second before the break.
Hull pulled one back through defender Paul McShane before they were reduced to ten men following David Meyler's reckless challenge on Kyle Naughton.
And the Swans sealed victory when Gomis coolly chipped keeper Allan McGregor in added on time as Hull were caught on the counter while throwing bodies forward.
And Taylor hailed Gomis' star display as the French striker took his season's tally to nine.
"Bafe's a massive confidence player like all attacking players are," he said. "Obviously since Wilf (Bony) left, he's had that run in the team and he's happy with how the team are playing for him and creating chances.
"He even said that he wants two goals in a game which he hadn't got yet and on Saturday he got that with two great goals."
