Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has promised the supporters that they won’t tail off at the end of the season, with the Welsh club one point from topping their best ever Premier League tally, reports BBC Sport.
The Jacks saw past Hull City 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium to take their tally to 46 points from 31 Premier League games in the table. With seven games to play, they should beat their record tally (47) this season as a result, but the players are staying focused to finish the campaign as strongly as possible.
Williams revealed that there will be no lull if they can surpass the tally, as they want to win as many games as possible before the season comes to a close. The players are looking forward to pushing higher up the table in 2015/16, and want to ensure they can finish strongly.
Manager Garry Monk will be desperate to break the record to further strengthen his own legacy at the club, but they have in-form Everton next in the Premier League, who will be a difficult side to face. The job is simple for the Swansea City defender, however.
“Even if we do beat that (total) we need to finish the season strong to go into next season. It’s important that we keep pushing on. There’s no secret that we want to beat that total – and we can do that. It’s in our own hands now and we’ve worked hard to get this far. We’re not going to stop now. We’re playing with a bit of confidence,” said Williams.
