Roberto Martinez says he is confident his side can pick up enough points on their travels to finish in the play-offs this season.
The Swansea City manager is aiming for another 21 points this season out of a possible 30 available. With 10 games remaining, we'll need to win all of our 5 home games plus a few away.
Our away form hasn't been brilliant lately, and we haven't experienced a win on our travels since January 10th, when we beat Burnley 2-0 in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Since then we've drawn 3 and lost 1 on the road.
Still, Martinez told BBC Sport that he remains confident we can get points away if we struggle to do at home:
'If you don't get the points at home or you drop points at home, you'll have to get them away from home and we are capable of doing that.'
'If we can carry on with our level of performance I'm sure we'll be a happy football club on 3 May.'
'I would be saying something different if we had a team that was struggling away from home - that we can be ourselves, that we can discover any sort of form, but we are not like that.
I think we have been competitive in any game that we have been in and that's a huge, huge strength.'
'I think it's a time to get excited.
'It's a time to look forward to all the games, especially the home ones with the support of our fans and I just hope everyone at Swansea City is proud of what the players have achieved so far.
'It's 10 games, 30 points to play for.'
6 points this week at home to Plymouth tomorrow and then Crystal Palace on Saturday would give us a huge boost in confidence ahead of another 8 tough League encounters afterwards. Still to play away include Cardiff City, Sheffield United and QPR.
