Chairman Huw Jenkins today praised his new management team for the job they have so far since arriving 9 games ago.
Since Roberto Martinez arrived as new boss, along with his assistant Graeme Jones, the Swans have lost just 1 game as they hope to clinch a play-off place this year.
Jenkins said: 'When Roberto and Graeme Jones came in they had a mountain to climb and they have done very well trying to manage it.
'Whatever happens between now and the end of the season, I don't think they could have done any more.
'The vast majority of the poor results and disappointing performances we've had were before they came in and we couldn't have asked for much more since they joined.
'Roberto has been like a breath of fresh air. I just hope the hard work put in over the last few weeks is rewarded by us getting into the play-offs, because that's what he deserves.'
Swansea had failed to win in 6 games prior to Martinez's arrival and the former player made an instant impact when he took over his first game away at Rotherham.
His side won 2-1 at Milmoor and went on a 5-match unbeaten run.
Jenkins wasn't surprised with Roberto's impressive start to his managerial career though and the chairman added: 'I expected it,'
'He has done very well considering he has had to work almost exclusively with players he inherited.
'But I knew when we made the decision to bring Roberto back that he would get more out of the existing squad than anybody else could.
'There was no bedding-in period because he knew them all so well.'
'No doubt Roberto and Graeme will give everything in those games to try to get us into the top six, and we're definitely still in the running,'
Can Martinez keep this up and take us into the Championship? Let us know in our forum here
