Swansea City players plead for fan’s encouragement as the team battles relegation

Swansea City is facing a pivotal week before the international break. The team has been struggling with a shambolic January transfer window and a poor run of form, which has seen them drop to 17th place in the Championship table.

They are now closer to the relegation zone than the top six.

This week, they face Middlesbrough, the most in-form team in the division, who have won 14 of their 19 league matches under Michael Carrick.

The Swans will need to produce a top performance to stand any chance of gaining a positive result.

Following their 1-1 draw with Rotherham United, Russell Martin hinted that his players may benefit from playing away from home given the uneasy atmosphere at the Swansea.com Stadium in recent matches.

It is clear that the current crop badly needs backing from the crowd, starting with the visit of Middlesbrough this weekend.

Fans have every right to be angry, upset, disappointed, frustrated, or feel any other kind of emotion with the club’s owners and/or the team and coaching staff for what such a promising season has turned into over recent months.

But, for the sake of the team’s confidence, those feelings need to be parked for 90 minutes when a buoyant Boro visit.

However, a fervent, passionate Jack Army can have a significant impact on the way the team plays this weekend.

It may not be enough to stop the Boro train bulldozing its way through anything and anyone, the Swans included, between now and the conclusion of the campaign, but it will no doubt enhance the chances of at least rebuilding the confidence which in turn will bolster the chances of putting some kind of halt to the club’s alarming slide.
