SWANSEA City head coach Luke Williams believes a full week on the training ground will be valuable for his side ahead of their weekend trip to Hull City.

Since his appointment in early January, Williams and his squad have faced a relentless and demanding schedule, while attempting to implement the ideas of the Swans boss and his coaching staff.

The former Notts County boss is yet to win a Championship match, with Swansea's next three fixtures all against sides in the current top six.

They are now just five points above the drop zone and former Swans midfielder Andy Robinson fears the club are facing a relegation battle.

“I’ve watched them many times this season and the more I see them, the more I’m concerned,” Robinson said.

“The worrying thing for me is that Swansea are falling towards a relegation battle because the players they've got are just not enough at the moment.”

But Williams feels there have been encouraging signs in periods of recent games, and he wants his side to start making the most of those spells.

And, with the transfer window now closed and a full week between games, he is keen to keep putting in the hard work.

“We need the time on the training pitch because we have to rehearse the actions and get very good at them,” said Williams.

“If we do that, and start to take the chances we create, we can be a really difficult team to play against.

“If we can expand those periods in games where we have done well, and we continue to create chances in the six-yard box, then we will be very unlucky not to start getting results.

“We have to concentrate on making the performance better and that will help us get to where we want to be.

“We have tough fixtures, but that’s the job. There’s no sulking or feeling sorry for ourselves, it’s about having the clarity in what we are doing.”
