Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says get ready for the roller-coaster finish to the Championship season as there'll be ups and downs along the way.
The Swans are still hanging on to their automatic promotion place but only because of goal difference after dropping 5 points in the last 2 games.
'It's going to be a really exciting journey — it's time to get ready for the rollercoaster,'
'There will be ups and downs for sure, and any manager will tell you that it's hard to enjoy games when you are stood on the touchline.
'It's difficult in the heat of the moment when you're concentrating and you're thinking all the time.
'You're emotions are going and you're always thinking about the what if scenario.
'It's difficult, but where you can you must embrace it and try to make it work for you.
'It's okay having fear because you can use fear in a positive way.'
The Swansea boss also believes a little bit of fatigue set it on Tuesday as we couldn't hang on to the win against Watford.
'There's no doubt a wee bit of fatigue set in on Tuesday and over the course of the next ten games that's something we'll have to manage,'
'You look at Ashley Williams and the number of games he has played, and Alan Tate, who has been fantastic for us.
'Garry has come back in and done really well over the last week, but we'll have to see whether he is ready.'
Rodgers is confident his team can respond from their recent setback at Derby County on Saturday:
'Their confidence level will not be the same as it would be if they had been winning games, but Derby are a dangerous team with dangerous players,'
'It's a surprise to see them where they are having played them earlier in the season when they were right up there. What's happened to them tells you something about my players. It shows how well they have come back after a setback.'
