Scott Sinclair is confident that Swansea can end their away day hoodoo at Newcastle next weekend after being buoyed by the victory against Fulham on Saturday.

Sinclair himself scored and Danny Graham sealed the win in added time, but Michel Vorm’s penalty save was key to keeping the Swans a goal to the good in the second period.

“It was a very important win, but so is everyone in the Premier League,” he said.

"We picked the pace up in the second half. We'd given ourselves a platform at 0-0 at half-time and then it was down to us to turn the possession into goals which we did.”

Swansea are yet to win away from home this season but Sinclair is looking forward to the trip to the North East.

“We’ll go to Newcastle full of confidence and hopefully we’ll get something out of the game," he continued.

“Everyone’s going to be buzzing.”

Sinclair was also quick to claim the goal that hit Clint Dempsey on the way in on Saturday as his fourth of the season, but his first from open play.

The ex-Chelsea man added: “If you get your shot on target it’s your goal so I’m counting that as one of mine.

"It got that deflection and perhaps I needed that bounce of the ball. I still had confidence and was putting in the work but it wasn't going for me but hopefully I can go on a run now.

“I need to contribute with goals and I'm always hungry to score and you can see that."
