Rodgers backs his exploding Swans

Swansea's lack of firepower so far this season is not a worry for Brendan Rodgers, who expects his charges to explode into action sooner rather than later.

The Barclays Premier League new boys have yet to find the net during their three top-flight outings, and will face a stern examination away to Arsenal on Saturday.

However, Rodgers has seen enough from the likes of summer signing Danny Graham and promotion hero Scott Sinclair to suggest a goal glut is just around the corner.

"I think we are ready to explode in relation to goals," said the Swans boss.

"The spotlight is on us because of the goals at the moment, but that doesn't concern me because of the players that I have.

"I feel it's only a matter of time and that we just have to stay patient.


"In Danny Graham we have got a top talent, a player who gives everything even when he doesn't score.

"When he comes off the field his shirt is soaking wet because he gives so much to the cause.

"It's just a matter of time before he scores, and you can see Scott Sinclair is getting closer and closer.

"We have a real attacking threat, so the goals don't concern me.

Although they have yet to open their scoring account, Swansea have been able to post two points on the board, having fought out goalless draws with both Wigan and Sunderland.

And Rodgers believes, had his side had the rub of the green then, perhaps, they would be able to boast at least one victory in the win column.

"The game is about inches and the consequences of those inches are massive," he added.

"I think if we'd had a little bit of luck, certainly in our home games, our points tally could have been totally different already.

"And overall I have to be pleased with the way we have taken our first steps in the Premier League."
