Stephen Dobbie says the team is capable of bouncing back on Saturday as they host Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea City have experienced a sudden drop in form recently and they've picked up just 1 point in the last 3 games. As a result, Norwich City have leapfrogged us up into 2nd place as we drop down to 3rd.
Brendan Rodgers' side desperately needs to get back into form and quick, they have a chance to do that on Saturday but it'll be tough against Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium.
Dobbie believes the team is capable of getting back to winning ways this weekend:
'I don't think it'll be difficult to pick ourselves up because it's Nottingham Forest coming up,'
'I'm sure there will be a big crowd and we need a win now.
'We've not won in the last three, but we're still up there or thereabouts and there's a lot of time to go.
'It's one of those things where you've got to keep going and with nine games left there's still a lot of points to play for. Big games need big characters and we've got them in the dressing room.'
Dobbie says he's expecting a tough game against Forest:
'The players know what we have to do to get there,'
'We said at the start of the season we wanted to do better than last year and it's about progression. But when you're up there you want that automatic promotion.
'We've still got Nottingham Forest and Norwich at home so we can take a lot of points off the other teams.'
'Billy Davies has got them playing really well,'
'Obviously they haven't picked up the points in the last few weeks, but they've had a few injuries.
'It's going to be a tough game.
'We didn't play the best up there and they came away with a 3-1 win so it will be nice to turn them over.
'Everyone's going to go through a patch like we are, but whoever performs in the big games will be there at the end.'
The striker, who's been playing in a more attacking midfield role recently, said he's happy to be involved more regularly in the first team:
'It's been a long time since I've played two 90 minutes in a row,'
'I'm just enjoying myself being back playing.
'For myself that's pleasing, but obviously the results could be better.
'We just need to push on for the next game.'
