Sinclair upbeat over Swans' impotence

Next Story

Swansea City winger Scott Sinclair is confident the club can break their goal-duck in the Barclays Premier League this weekend.

The Welsh side host Roy Hodgson's West Bromwich Albion at the Liberty Stadium, with their inability to score goals looming large over Brendan Rodgers' side.

Despite two creditable draws against Sunderland and Wigan, the Swans have been unable to register a win despite back-to-back home clean sheets in the top flight, and Sinclair is certain the attackers at the club can put that right.

"It has been a little frustrating, but we don't let it get to us and affect our performances. They key thing is that we are creating chances. If we don't do that then it's time to worry," Sinclair told the official Swansea website.

"I've been disappointed with myself because I'm yet to score after getting 27 goals last season. But I've hit the crossbar twice and I'm getting closer. Danny (Graham) has gone very close too, and once he gets a goal he'll score plenty more because he is a quality player.

"But I look around the team and I see goals - not just from Danny, myself, Leroy (Lita), Nathan (Dyer) and (Stephen) Dobbie, but from the back and midfield too.


"We don't just look at the forward players and say 'it's your job to score' because it's not. We defend as a team and attack as a team - everyone has to chip in. Hopefully we can get a goal and three points on the board on Saturday because the team and supporters deserve it."

Home form is certain to be key to the Swans' survival hopes this season, with the boisterous 'Jack Army' support likely to prove pivotal should the side stay up.

And Sinclair is in no doubt that the fans can make a difference, given the response of the supporters in the opening two home games of the current campaign.

"The fans have always been brilliant with us - no matter what the score is. Against Arsenal last weekend, all we could hear were our fans singing away and supporting us. That's what every player wants to hear, particularly at an away ground," he added.

"At the Liberty it has been absolutely incredible. Against Wigan and Sunderland the place was absolutely rocking and we were unlucky not to score and win those games.

"A lot has been made of the fact we haven't scored yet, but I'm sure with another sold-out Liberty on Saturday the fans can cheer us on to victory."
