Trundle: Fans can help Swansea survive

Former Swansea City striker Lee Trundle has emphasised the importance of the club’s supporters as they aim for Premier League survival.

The Swans sit in 18th position in the standings after three consecutive defeats, but are still only two points adrift of safety, represented by Hull City in 17th position.

Trundle, who scored 91 goals for the Swans over two separate spells at the club, believes the fans could have a big influence over the players' performances at home.

“As a fan, myself, it’s frustrating because we’ve not got the results we have wanted. But we must realise how big a part we have to play in helping the club remain in the Premier League," he told the club's official website. 

“This is the most important time when the fans can help the players. I understand as a football fan it’s hard when you’re spending your money, travelling here and there and results aren’t going your way. It’s very frustrating. 

“But we’re home on Saturday and if we’re going to get out of this then the fans will play a massive part. As someone who has played for this special club, I can say to the fans that the support they gave me really helped me during the game. It gave me a real lift and an extra energy that I didn’t think I had left in me. 

“When you’re not playing well or you’ve missed a good chance and your head drops, just to hear them signing your name and getting behind you pushes you on even more. 

“They can do the same for the current players this weekend.” 

Swansea have three home games left this season, against Stoke City, Everton, and West Brom.
