‘Crazy’ win can be turning point for Swansea

Bob Bradley believes Swansea’s “crazy” victory over fellow strugglers Crystal Palace can be a turning point in their bid for Premier League survival.

Bradley’s first win as Swansea manager was one of the games of the Premier League season so far after the Welsh club netted twice in stoppage time to secure a 5-4 win over Palace.

Swansea looked to be cruising to three points when they took a 3-1 lead as the game headed into its dying stages, but then Palace found the net three times in a crazy nine-minute spell.

However, the topsy-turvy nine-goal thriller took a further twist, to move Swansea off the bottom of the Premier League table.

Bradley said: "I have been on both sides of games like that, so I understand how Palace feel.

"As far as we are concerned, it was a huge victory and one which the group thoroughly deserves.

"In the end, the character of the players shone through and I am very happy for them.

"It has been a difficult season and a lot of things have not bounced the right way. But we still show up every day with a great mentality and I couldn't be happier for that group.'

"I see the win as a turning point in so many ways.

"Sometimes you feel like you need something crazy and maybe [this game] can be that moment.

"Having said that, we cannot take the good part without looking a little deeper. After all, you won't win matches like that every day.''
