Swansea's Graham: 'Desperate To Start Every Game'

Swansea's Graham: 'Desperate To Start Every Game'

Record Swansea City striker Danny Graham, has admitted that he 'hated' sitting out following an injury to his back.

Danny Graham missed the Swans 3-0 home win against West Bromwich Albion due to a back spasm, which he first felt on the Thursday before the game:

'I've never had any sort of back problems before,' he said.

'That happens in football and that was just my luck that it happened a couple of days before a match.

'I was training on the Thursday morning (before West Brom) and I had a back spasm.

'I couldn't train and I missed Friday's session, then it stiffened up again on Saturday and I wasn't right to play.

'I was left out and the boys did ever so will to win 3-0, and we needed that win. Rightly so, I didn't start against Chelsea.'


Swansea city play host to Stoke City at the Liberty this Saturday and, Danny Graham is aiming to reclaim his starting spot:

'I'm desperate to start every game,' said Graham, Swansea's £3.5 million record signing.

'I sat in the crowd against West Brom and I hated it.

'That's just the way I am. I want to play games and I don't want to sit on the bench.

'It's up to me to get back on the training field and force myself back into the team.'


Graham, who is still looking for his first Swansea goal in the Premier League, is unconcerned by his lack of goals:

'I'd be worried if I wasn't getting the chances,' he said.

'As a striker, you're going to miss chances and have a few games where you won't score. That's a fact.

'I'm more than confident I will score goals. When one comes along, there will be a few more after that.'


He has admitted that the feeling in the Swansea camp is good and confidence is very high following the defeat at Chelsea:

'Obviously Chelsea was a tough test,' he added.

'We managed a consolation but it was always going to be tough and we have to move on and focus on next week.

'I think it was important that we scored. There is confidence and a real belief there.

'We're a team that keeps going right until the end no matter what the score is.

'We need to take that on from now and look forward to the Stoke game.'
