Roberto Martinez says our remaining home games are vital to us if we want to finish in the top 6 this season.
The Spaniard admitted his side dropped 2 points on the weekend after failing to hang on to a 1-goal lead thanks to Jason Scotland's 20th strike of the season.
The Swans are proving to be incredibly hard to beat this season, but with 3 consecutive draws, we need to start turning them into wins - starting tomorrow night at home to Plymouth.
Martinez, along with a few other players including Williams and Gower, have all said our remaining 10 games are all 'cup finals'.
The Swans' boss aims for 21 points in 10 games, to meet that aim we'll to win all our home games and stay undefeated on our travels.
It's a tough ask as we haven't looked excellent away from home lately.
Martinez told the Western Mail:
'Every game is a final for us now so the Plymouth game couldn't be more important,'
'The games we have left at home are vital for us.
'Every point between now and the end of the season is equally important and we have 30 to challenge for.
'The target is still between 72 and 75 points and the key to reaching it is our home form - there's no margin for error at home now.'
'Nothing has really changed in the table. We are still very much involved.'
Martinez remains in typical upbeat mood about their chances this season, he added:
'If we had won this game we would have been in the top six - and it was the same at Derby,'
'But now we have a good chance to try and make that happen at the Liberty.
'Results went our way over the weekend. So all we have to do is win our next two games and we are right back in it.
'Obviously when other teams are slipping up you want to capitalise on it. It wasn't to be at Forest but hopefully it will happen over the next week.
'If we win our home games and nick a point away, that should see us in the play-offs.'
All but 2 Championship clubs are in action tomorrow night, and our play-off rivals are all facing bottom-half teams.
Bristol City host 14th-placed Coventry, Sheffield United face Blackpool at home and Burnley play Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
