Bradley hails Swansea “turning point”

Swansea City

Bob Bradley has backed his Swansea side to kick on after Saturday's dramatic 5-4 win over Crystal Palace.

The American claimed his first win since taking on the role in October, as a stoppage time brace from Fernando Llorente handed the Swans a potentially vital three points, with the victory lifting them off the bottom of the table.

Bradley has repeatedly talked up his side up since arriving at the Liberty Stadium and after a string of improved performances without gaining a reward, they finally claimed their first victory since the opening weekend.

Next up is a trip to Tottenham on Saturday and they will head into the game at White Hart Lane full of confidence, as they look to move away from the bottom three.

The 58-year-old believes Saturday’s win over the Eagles could prove huge for his side and believes they can now kick on towards safety.

“I see the win as a turning point in so many ways,” he told BBC Sport. “Sometimes you feel like you need something crazy and maybe this game can be that moment.

“It has been a difficult season and a lot of things have not bounced the right way. But we still show up every day with a great mentality and I couldn’t be happier for that group.”

Following Llorente’s heroics on Sunday, punters may opt to use their free bet to back the Spaniard to find the net again in North London.
