Dorus De Vries is set to make his 100th appearance tomorrow when Blackpool visit the Liberty Stadium.
The Dutch shot stopper told BBC Sport how he can't believe how quickly his time in South Wales has flown by.
The 28 year-old could also make it into the Swansea City record books and beat a record currently held by a legend - Roger Freestone for the most clean sheets in a season - 22.
De Vries already has 7 after just 13 games, compared to Roger Freestone's 5 at the same time during the Championship-wnning 1999/2000 year.
De Vries said:
'It'd be nice to get in the record book but it's about all the team,'
'My time here has flown, there've been some great times, we're still progressing - I hope I have many years and games to come.'
'The play-offs have always been a target,'
'I'm really confident of another clean sheet against Blackpool and of keeping our run going.
'We're working so hard in training and it's showing on the pitch.
'We can still make a lot of progress, we're doing it bit by bit.
'There's great potential in this team and the future's bright at Swansea City.'
The goalkeeper also talked about his decision in the Summer to sign a new 2-year contract after on-going lengthy talks.
Eventually pen met paper and thankfully it did because he's performed superbly so far this season, making some superb saves to help us win games and keep clean sheets.
He added: 'Talks went on for a long, long time and other clubs became interested, including teams from abroad,' said de Vries, who eventually agreed a new two-year deal at the Liberty Stadium.
'I wanted to see what would happen with all the changes going on at Swansea, to make sure that I was making the right choice.
'But I feel so welcome at the club, I have a great connection with the fans and we play football the right way.
'I made the right choice to sign up for another two years.'
