Rodgers expects Sinclair goal rush


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."
