Sinclair Target His 20th Goal At Coventry
Scott Sinclair says he's hoping to get his 20th goal tomorrow after netting his 19th on Saturday to set us on our way to a 3-0 home win against Doncaster Rovers.
The former Chelsea winger has fired in an impressive 19 goals from the right wing for the Swans this season, and the youngster says it's down to playing week in week out.
This is the first time Sinclair has been able to settle and play regularly for the same side after going out on loan a number of times when he was at Stamford Bridge.
Sinclair told the Evening Post:
'The gaffer tells us it's about getting in the right positions,'
'If I can get into those position more then I'll have opportunities to poke some more home.
'Hopefully I can get to the 20-mark tomorrow — it would be a big achievement.
'It has come from playing week in, week out. It has really paid off for me.
'But I don't know what target I'll be after if I hit 20. It's about keeping going now and helping the team push on.
'It will be tough at Coventry, but we are always confident. We've got two good wins on the bounce and now we're focused on getting a good result there.'
The Swans have bounced back from the defeat against Cardiff City with two consecutive wins which has put them up to third. Rodgers and his team are aiming for 6 more points this week - starting off with a tricky trip to Coventry City tomorrow night.
Sinclair added that it's important that we're always looking forward, and not concentrating more on how our promotion rivals are doing:
'You've seen by the results on Saturday how much this division can change,'
'You can win two games and find yourself right up there, but a draw or defeat will see you slip back down.
'We can't afford to slip up, but the main priority is looking forward, not behind us.
'If we keep looking forward and moving up the table then that's great — we won't be looking over our shoulders.
'When we worry about what other teams are doing, then we're taking our concentration away from what's is happening here.'
