. . . Swans defender salutes his team-mates following Saturday's win


Ben Davies insists the three points was the most pleasing aspect of Saturday’s 4-1 win over Queens Park Rangers at the Liberty.

The Swans produced a wonderful attacking display as a brace from Michu – coupled with goals from Pablo Hernandez and Angel Rangel – moved Michael Laudrup’s side up to seventh in the Premier League table.

The home side looked confident from the first whistle and scored a contender for goal of the season with an excellent passing move that was capped with Michu’s cool finish.

But Davies admitted that the three points was the most pleasing following three games without a goal and a defeat last time out at West Ham.

“You are always coming up against quality in this league,” he said. “We were happy with the performance, we got the job done and the three points that we wanted before the game.

“We knew that whatever team they (QPR) put out it was going to be a tough game.

“But we kept the ball well for long periods and created some good chances because of that, and the fourth goal was summed up our day.”

The result moved the Swans on to 37 points for the season, just three away from the coveted 40-point mark.

It has already been a historic season for Michael Laudrup’s side, with a first major cup final just two weeks away.

However, they face a trip to Anfield next weekend and the squad will prepare for the game in warmer climates after jetting out to Dubai on Sunday morning.

And Davies says the players will benefit from a hard-earned break following a hectic last two months of league and cup action.

“It’s a tough game against Liverpool next weekend, so it was important to get the three points on Saturday,” he said.

“I just hope we can continue playing like we have been and pick up as many points as we can between now and the end of the season.

“It’s always nice to get some warm weather in before we face Liverpool and then the cup final after that.

“The games have been coming thick and fast recently so it will be nice to get away and relax for a few days.”
