Laudrup out to stop the rot
Michael Laudrup believes victory against Reading is a must as Swansea look to halt a run of three straights defeat in the league.
The Swans welcome the Royals to the Liberty Stadium on the back of consecutive defeats to Everton, Aston Villa and Stoke in recent weeks. Having flown out of the traps with back-to-back wins in the first two matches, the Welsh outfit have only taken one point from the last four games and are slipping towards the wrong end of the table. Laudrup says he is remaining positive over the Swans current situation but admits confidence around the Liberty Stadium is a bit lower than he would like. "No goals, no points has to be taken seriously but you have to keep a balance. If you talk too much about something then sometimes you go on the pitch over-motivated," Laudrup said. "After three defeats obviously there is less confidence but it is still only the seventh game in the league, it does not finish after this weekend. "This is a long road and it's one game on that road." Reading head to South Wales in desperate need of a win themselves having yet to register three points this season.
