Paulo Sousa was obviously delighted after watching his side beat Cardiff City 3-2!
The Swans dominated the majority of the match and it was that dominance that helped us race into an early 2-goal lead. But the Bluebirds were back on level terms with two goals in two minutes to stun the Swans.
Thankfully Darren Pratley fired home the winner in the second half to give us bragging rights over our bitter rivals Cardiff City, silencing their home fans!
'It means a lot to all of us, but especially for the fans and the city,''
'There is a lot of happiness and I am pleased we could give them that.
'We can be proud of ourselves and our fans can go to work with more energy and to help the city to grow.
'The win reinforces our convictions and confidence and tells us once more that we're in a good way.
'When we took the lead, we started to control the game. It was difficult because they are a strong side, especially with their long balls and set plays. But we are becoming mentally stronger, more focused and in the end we deserved this nice win.
'When we made mistakes, they punished us. But we started the second-half well and put our identity on the game and controlled the rhythm with a lot of possession and personality.
'Our creativity was dynamic. We played very well, were well organised and showed great energy from the start. We never lost focus and concentrated for the whole game.
'At half-time we knew we had to control the match to win and when we don't make mistakes we know we will win games.
'We try to start each match positively. Making the right decisions but we have to keep our concentration as today we gave away two simple goals.
'We must work on that to be stronger as a team and that will be our aim as we believe in ourselves.
'But I have seen for myself now what it means to be a supporter of this club - and I'm pleased we could give them the win.'
