"We'll do our maximum and see what happens"

Graham Potter says his Swansea City side believe they are capable of beating anyone on current form, but cannot afford to get carried away by the notion of a late surge for a play-off spot.

A third win in a row against Stoke has seen the Swans close to within seven points of the top six with just six games of the season remaining.

Chances of overcoming that deficit would appear slim, but the Swans are playing with confidence and have put together a string of strong showings in recent weeks.

Potter was reluctant to think ahead to what might happen come the first weekend in May, and says his side will simply rack up as many points as they can and see where that leaves them.

"We do not think about the play-offs, we just focus on the next match. We have not got enough points," said Potter.

"We are in a good place, we are confident and we believe we can beat anybody. But, of course, we know we can lose to anybody if we do not play well.

"We are in that situation, we are a humble group and the lads know if we do not play well, we don’t win.

"Clearly we need points to be able to get into the play-offs, so for us we just need to try and get as close to maximum as we can and see what happens."
