Rodgers wants Swans to push on

Published Add your comment

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers believes it is vital his side do not let an encouraging maiden Premier League campaign "fizzle out" after Friday's 2-0 defeat to Newcastle.

The defeat, courtesy of another goal double from the Magpies' in-form Senegal striker Papiss Cisse, was Swansea's third in a row after reverses against Everton and Tottenham. It means Swansea are now on their worst run of league form since the early days of Kenny Jackett's reign in 2004.

With a comfortable cushion over the drop zone, Swansea should retain their top-flight status for at least another season, but Rodgers said: "We need to pick up some points and finish the season how it has been for us, this season was a real test of our talent, and we have passed that, it was also a test of our courage and mentality and we have passed that too."
