Cape Town - Swansea
City centre-back Kyle Bartley believes a positive result in the FA Cup
could help the team find some confidence and lead to better Premier
The Swans are rooted to the bottom of the league table after winning
only one of their last seven games, but Bartley reckons a win against
Wolverhampton in their FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday could
kick-start their revival.
“Obviously, our focus is mainly on the Premier League,” he told Jack Magazine, according to the club's official website.
“But, as you’ve seen in the past, a good cup run can lift everyone’s
spirits around the club and the city, and give you that bit of
confidence that might be lacking.
“I think it’s important that we go out to try to win the game and,
hopefully, we can take that momentum going forward in the Premier
“It’s also a good opportunity for players to get some minutes into
their legs, because everyone is going to be needed in the league until
the end of the season.”
Swansea played out a goalless draw against Wolves in their clash at
Molineux on January 6, before a 1-1 draw with Newcastle in the league.
