Stephen Dobbie says he's hoping to experience another promotion win this year, after helping Blackpool reach the Premier League last season.
The Scottish striker was on loan with the Seasiders in 2010 and he scored 4 League goals in 6 starts for Ian Holloway's team to help them win the play-offs and promotion to the top flight.
Dobbie is hoping for a repeat of that this year, but hopefully we can go one better and win promotion without going experiencing the roller-coaster ride of the play-offs.
Dobbie was the hero in last night's game as he came off the bench at Coventry City to net the winning goal which puts Swansea City up to second in the Championship table.
He told BBC Sport:
'We're on a great run, the boys have been fantastic,'
'If we can keep going it could be another fantastic year but there's still a long way to go.
'When I went there [to Blackpool] last year, we went on an unbelievable run and I think our game last week against Middlesbrough coming back from 3-1 down with half-an-hour to go to win 4-3 is the kind of thing Blackpool did.
'I think that's kick-started us and we showed that in the game on Saturday and tonight. We've got another big game on Saturday that the team has to pick itself up again and go again.'
Dobbie also spoke about the squad and the backup players they have for the remaining 13 games:
'You look at the bench and you've got the likes of Joe Allen, a Welsh intenational, and Kemy [Agustien] coming on along with Luke Moore and myself,'
'It shows you the spirit in the team that boys can come off the bench - obviously don't want to be on the bench - but come on and make a difference and it keeps us up near the top.
'The boys were fantastic all night. I think the whole back four and Dorus de Vries had a busy night.
'Coventry are very physical and pumped balls into the box and we had to be strong, but if you nick a goal and you hang on to it, you come away with the three points.
'It was a great lay-off from Nathan and I took my chance and it found its way into the net.
