Swansea boss Bob Bradley thanked the club’s supporters for their backing as they claimed a vital three points against Sunderland on Saturday.

The American gained his second league win since taking charge in south Wales, courtesy of second half goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a Fernando Llorente brace.

The 3-0 win lifted Swansea out of the relegation zone and ensured that Sunderland are now left propping up the table.

Bradley was under pressure going into the game but he felt the atmosphere inside the Liberty Stadium had changed completely once Sigurdsson converted from the penalty spot on 51 minutes.

With the crowd behind them, Swansea thrived in the atmosphere and ran out convincing winners. Bradley urged the supporters to repeat the trick and ensure similar results help Swansea towards safety.

“It is a good feeling to get on top. It has not happened enough this season. It helps and gets the supporters behind us. The atmosphere starts to change.

The momentum goes through the team and that is what we really need right now,” he said. “It shows the supporters are with the team.

It has been a tough time but they know how to support the players. They were there for us. It is important that we enjoy the moment but we cannot lose focus.

We need to build on this result.” Swansea have managed only three wins from 15 Premier League games this season.

After a thrilling 5-4 win over Crystal Palace last time out, they have now recorded back-to-back home successes either side of a 5-0 drubbing against Spurs.

Swansea are 2.10 to be relegated this season while they are 2.60 to win their next game at West Brom on Wednesday.
