Swansea City have a lot to be thankful for after taking another three points in the clash with Burnley at the Liberty stadium yesterday. The win came aafter a goal from Nathan Dyer in the 23rd minute but if the fans though that was a sign of a sparkling second half they were much mistaken because time and time again there was the feeling that Burnley might well just go home singing with a very useful point

Swans goalie Lukasz Fabianski put in a great performance and deservedly won Man of the Match with his second half blocking of Burnely's David Jones attempt to equalise. Burney Manager Sean Dyche reckoned the one goal of the clash wasn't much to talk about

Garry Monk knows the Swans can and must play better and said their performance reminded him of another occasion last season.

But no one can deny that six points tucked away is something to smile about especially as the new signings Federico Fernandez a snip at 8 million from Napoli and Tom Carroll on loan from Spurs have yet to take to the pitch apart from being shown off to the fans before the game. The next game up for Swansea City is against Rotherham United on Tuesday night in the second round of this season's Capital One Cup. The Millers travel to the Liberty on the back of a first round win over Fleetwood with a scoreline of 1-0 Kick off at the Liberty is 7.45pm
