Swansea City captain Garry Monk says he can't explain our drop in form at a vital part of the season - which has seen us drop out of the play-offs.
Earlier this year we were sitting confident in 4th place, 10 points ahead of 7th place but now we found ourselves in 7th, needing a favour from Bristol City next Sunday for us to end the season in 6th.
Play-offs are looking very unlikely now and Monk can't explain why, because the confidence levels have never dropped:
'There's no explanation - who knows? I can't even answer it,'
'I don't feel confidence is any lower in the squad. Everyone's confident and nothing's really changed.
'At the end of the day our effort and commitment has been there all season.'
'We never do things easy here at Swansea and it's never come in my time here or the time before, so we're looking for one of those days where it can all go right for us,' said Monk, who joined the club in 2004 and will make his 200th club appearance if he faces Doncaster on Sunday.
'We have to get our performance right and that's the biggest thing. If we don't win our game it doesn't matter what anyone else is doing.
'A win for us is all we can ask for. That's what we have to do and hope Bristol City can put in a performance for their new manager Steve Coppell and get a result against Blackpool.
'Of course we will probably hear from the crowd if there's a goal, you can't help it, but the focus and concentration has to be massive for us and we have to win our game, simple as that.'
