Williams: Confidence is returning

Swansea captain Ashley Williams says the team are finally getting their groove back and that confidence is returning to the squad.

The Swans have now gone three games without defeat, something they last managed in September.

"Confidence is slowly coming back and you can only get confidence by performing well," said Williams.

"You can see the guys are trying to play out of tight situations, which they maybe wouldn't have done earlier this season."

Williams was left in a good mood after his side managed to keep their third straight clean sheet in their 0-0 draw away at Crystal Palace.

"I think it was our best defensive display of the season," he added. "We had to defend a lot of crosses and, as a unit, the desire and heart was there for everyone to see."
