Gower: We're Going In The Right Direction

Gower: We're Going In The Right Direction

Mark Gower believes the Swans are going in the right direction after another home win.

The former Southend United winger scored his first ever goal for the Swans since joining two years ago which helped us beat QPR 2-0 on Saturday.

Paulo Sousa's side have picked up 7 points in the last 3 games and we'll go into next week's game at Ipswich before the international break with plenty of confidence.

The Swans didn't have a good start to the season and we're struggling to get goals but results are beginning to improve significantly.

Gower believes things are now looking up for the team and we can now begin to move up the table, he told Evening Post:

'It has been a long time since I scored, a long time,'

'In my career I've been used to getting a fair share of goals. It is a lovely feeling, but I had forgotten what it felt like. It has been so long and it weighed me down.

'It wasn't too bad last season as we were playing so well and I was chipping in with assists.

'My confidence has been knocked since then because of my performances levels.

'But now I've got that goal I'm hoping to kick-start my game.

'It's a shame my son wasn't here to see it. He was out shopping, so maybe I'll send him out to do that more from now on.'

Gower also believes we can match last season's achievements of finishing in 8th place, he added:

'We are going in the right direction, despite a patchy start to the season,'

'Once we get more of a settled side you will see Swansea up there again and prove that last season wasn't a fluke.

'I think in patches this season we have played as well as we did last season, but maybe not dominated games so much.

'But there was a lot of upheaval in the summer and we've not had a settled side yet because of injuries and suspensions.

'We are a lot more confident now and hopefully we will climb the table when we return.

'It was important not to get a disappointing result going into the international break, and we are going into the Ipswich game with more confidence and a good performance in the bank.'
