Cooper outlines Swansea aims ahead of weekend trip to Sheffield Wednesday

Swansea City boss Steve Cooper spoke to the press today, and has said that his side’s approach ‘won’t change’ ahead of their trip to Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship this weekend.

The Swans go into the weekend in joint-second, tied on 28 points with Preston and Leeds United.

Cooper’s team are fourth on goal-difference, and will look for a third-straight win in the Championship at Hillsborough having beaten Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic in their last two outings.

Speaking today about the Sheffield Wednesday game this weekend, Cooper said: 

It’s a game we’re really looking forward to, it’s a big club and an iconic stadium. We’ll be ready.”

Swansea have the second-best away record in the Championship this season, taking 15 points from seven games and conceding just four in the process – they’re unbeaten on the road in league fixtures since April.

“We’re not talking too much about our away run, we take each game as it comes,” said Cooper.

“We don’t have a different approach whether we’re home or away, we try to win each game. So far it’s served us well and the plans won’t change.”

The Swans started the season in blistering form, winning seven of their opening eight games in all competitions and looking like the earliest contenders for Premier League promotion.

But their form dropped off and they went the whole of September without a win. With consecutive victories going into the weekend though, Cooper looks to be slowly recapturing his side’s early promise.

Will Swansea City be promoted from the Championship season?

The verdict

Sheffield Wednesday will pose a huge threat for Swansea this weekend, and Garry Monk will be hoping to take maximum points from his former suitors.

They face a strong side in Swansea and on the road, they’re more than a match for anyone. It’ll make for an enticing encounter in South Yorkshire, and Cooper will be gunning to go into the international break on the back of three straight wins.
