David Gold told Claret and Hugh within the last few minutes: “I’m expecting a result at Swansea this afternoon. “
The co chairman has just arrived at the Liberty Stadium and told us: This is not like the old days when we travelled hoping to get something – I now go everywhere expecting to win.”
He added: “Obviously it’s a tough game but there’s no Bony up front and we are in very a positive mood. It was a shame we didn’t get the win I thought we were destined for at Everton.
“But we played very well and despite the run of games without a win we are here in good spirits with confidence very high in the squad.
“Andy Carroll caused mayhem in their defence last time and there’s no reason to beleve we won’t see more of the same.
“I’m confident that we can get at least but very confident we can collect all three. It’s well within our reach.”
