Gower: Swans can compete

Next Story

Swansea midfielder Mark Gower believes all they're missing is "a little bit of luck".

The Welsh side are yet to open their scoring account after a difficult start in the Barclays Premier League, but all the signs are looking good.

Two goalless draws at their home, the Liberty Stadium, suggest a solid defence, and the two losses away to an unbeaten Manchester City, as well as an unfortunate mistake which gifted Arsenal the only goal of the match last Saturday, suggest things aren't too bad at the Liberty Stadium.

Speaking about their unlucky 1-0 defeat against Arsenal, Gower reflected on the positives of the match.

"It is a tough pill to swallow because we competed with them from the first minute to the last," he said.

"[Our] lads were a different class. The work rate was superb and we created chances, we just need that little bit of luck and something to go on our way to give us confidence."

Swansea's style of play also drew admiration from Arsene Wenger, who has tipped them for survival. Gower's vision for Swansea's future is just as optimistic.

"We can more than compete at this level I am certain of that," he continued.

"It is a tough league but I could see us stringing a few results together and climbing up the table. We will be fine."
