Swans Boss Hopes Spurs Draw Will Boost Confidence

Swans Boss Hopes Spurs Draw Will Boost Confidence

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he hopes the 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur will boost his side's confidence as they look for their first away win on Tuesday when they travel to Aston Villa.

After Blackburn Rovers' shock win at Manchester United yesterday, Swansea City are now the only team in the Premier League without a win away from home.

Rodgers now hopes his players will gain confidence following an excellent performance against Spurs.

'That was as good a performance as we have produced against a real top side.

'For Spurs to arrive here with their form and quality and for us to play as we did against a top side shows growth. I am very proud of the players.

'To show that level of performance against a top team, to come from behind when we could have felt sorry for ourselves was fantastic.

'Many sides after playing that well for 43 minutes and then going a goal down could have got down, Tottenham can run over teams like that and win 3-0 or 4-0.

'But we showed resolve and resistance as well as quality. Hopefully that provides that extra boost of confidence for the second half of the season.

'What this does is it gives us the confidence we can stay in the league, our objective was to stay at this level because it is such an exciting league.

'This was a brilliant day for supporters and journalists to see our minnows facing such quality players, but to be the better side shows how the squad and club has grown.'


Rodgers is still confident his side can soon improve their away record:

'I am not very worried about our away form,'

'We could win away and lose at home, the most important thing for us to is keep putting points on the board. We would like to pick up the win away for the supporters but there is no extra pressure on us.'
