Rodgers expects Sinclair goal rush

Published Add your comment

Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers expects Scott Sinclair to kick on after the winger grabbed his first Premier League goal from open play in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Fulham.

Sinclair scored 27 goals to help fire Swansea to promotion last season, but had only found the net with three spot-kicks before his goal-bound effort was helped in by Cottagers midfielder Clint Dempsey.

Rodgers said: "You'll see the change in him now. His all-round game was great, he was a threat for us and he puts defenders on the back foot. I thought he combined much better than in some of his other games instead of being a soloist all the time. He was unfortunate a couple of times."
