The Swans ran out 4-0 winners over Huddersfield on Saturday

Luke Williams feels Swansea City’s quest to end the season strong still requires them to gain the confidence of the supporters.

The Swans destroyed relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium with four goals in a thrilling second half that included goals from Ronald, Liam Walsh, Jerry Yates, and Jamal Lowe.

With the victory, which is Swansea’s greatest of the year, Williams has now managed his team to nine points out of a possible nine in their previous three games. During this run, the Swans have also scored eight goals and kept three clean sheets.

Going into the final two games of the season, it means the Swans are now headed for a successful conclusion to the season, but Williams thinks there is still more work to be done in terms of winning over the supporters.

“The idea for us is to build the trust with the fans,” he stated. It hurts my feelings when they sing, “How bad must you be, we’re winning away?” I understand, and it crushes my heart. I understand. I recognize.

But in Hull, we prevailed. We’ve won here today, as well as at Sunderland. Therefore, I want them to appreciate us and have more faith in us.

“We’re going to show up, fight for every ball, attempt to steal the ball from the opposition squad, and play some excellent football as well. If they witness that on a daily basis, maybe, they will begin to trust us more.

“We must gain their confidence. They are aware of what they are observing. It is not possible to cover their eyes with wool. You must be the genuine article. Then, gradually, they say, “Okay.” We value our team, therefore that will be a pleasant occasion.”

The club honored great former winger Leighton James, who tragically passed away on Friday at the age of 71, as the afternoon got off to a heartfelt start.

Williams dedicated the Swans’ victory over the Terriers to the former Wales international, and Swans players honored James by donning black armbands during the game.
