Bob Bradley expects more from Swans

Bob Bradley is confident his Swansea side can kick on from their 3-0 win over Sunderland as they look to move away from relegation danger.

A Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty and a brace from Fernando Llorente saw the Swans claim only their third win of the season on Saturday to climb off the bottom of the table.

They now sit 18th heading into Wednesday’s trip to West Brom, a game they are 3.80 to win, with the draw 3.40 and the Baggies 2.05.

Swansea then have a run of winnable games against Middlesbrough, West Ham, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, and producing more performances like they did against the Black Cats could be key to their survival hopes.

Bradley has chopped and changed his line-up since replacing Francesco Guidolin in October but believes the win over the Wearsiders has set a benchmark for his side, who are 2.10 to be relegated.

The American is adamant his team are heading in the right direction and is confident they can continue to improve now he is finally getting to grips with the players at his disposal.

“I think we’ve made good progress. Good performances from good players is what allows you to start to settle into your best team, assuming you can avoid injuries and suspensions,” he told BBC Radio Wales Sport.

“Certainly we feel strongly that we want to try and build on the work from Saturday and will it be the exact same team? I’m not sure but I think you’ll still see a pretty good carry over from the game against Sunderland.”
