Tayls: We've made a "big improvement"
29th December 2015
Neil Taylor believes the Swans' performances during the festive break have shown a "big improvement".
The Swans shared the spoils at Selhurst Park on Monday in a closely-fought encounter with Crystal Palace.
That came on the back of a 0-0 draw at home against West Ham and a 1-0 win over West Brom at the Liberty.
Five points and three clean sheets from those three games have given the Swans some form and momentum going into the new year.
And Taylor has been buoyed by the recent displays under caretaker-manager Alan Curtis, with the Swans collecting 19 points from the first half of the season.
"We've picked up another point and clean sheet," said Taylor, who did an excellent job while up against tricky Palace winger Wilfried Zaha. "From where we were a few months ago it's a big improvement.
"We didn't do too much offensively, but as a team we did very well defensively.
"The key was to get through the early pressure and quieten down the crowd, which we managed to do.
"We brought on fresh legs and played some nice football while we also held up well at the back.
"Overall, a draw was a fair result."
