Four goals in four games for Danny Graham has given him a big boost after a rather slow start to the season for the new striker.
The 26 year-old, who joined in the Summer for a record £3m fee, failed to score in his first five League games for the club, and some fans quickly got on his back for a lack of goals.
However, Graham explained that it's taken a little time for the goals to come because he had to adjust to a different style at his new club this season.
The frontman scored an own goal against Bolton Wanderers in Saturday's 3-1 home win, but he was glad to go up the other end 20 minutes later and score at the right end.
"It did kind of hurt a bit because that was the first goal we`ve conceded at home and the boys have done really well this season.
"David Wheater went forward and he was my man so there was a bit of honesty in trying to help the boys out.
"It took a deflection off Angel, it`s hit my shin pad and gone straight in.
"If I tried to score one like that it wouldn`t happen, but, because I`m in my own box, it`s flown in.
"I can`t repeat what (Garry) Monk said to me straight after the goal, but it wasn`t nice.
"That happens in football. It`s about how you deal with things and I had the chance to seal the game and took it.
"I can laugh now, but if they`d have come back and equalised it would be a different story."
Graham added that he knew the goals would soon come for him:
"It took a little time because the way Swansea play is different to what I`ve been used to at Watford,"
"It`s a different set of players so you have to work on it, but I think it`s coming together now.
"We`re creating a lot more chances than we did at the start of the season.
"I knew the goals would come if the boys kept creating chances.
"It`s just a matter of not letting it get to you and getting in the right places.
"I managed to score, but the win`s the important thing after what happened last week at Wolves.
"I`ve just scored four in four in the Premier League and that would fill anyone with confidence."
Rodgers was delighted with Graham`s performance, saying: "He`s outstanding, he scored two goals - one for them and one for us - and could have had a couple more.
"I don`t think anyone in the stadium had any doubt he would score at the end."
