McLeod bursting with confidence
Kevin McLeod
Swansea hat-trick hero Kevin McLeod said Saturday's 7-1 destruction of Bristol City is a result of the confidence flowing through the side.

"When you've got confidence you can do what you want and everything's a plus," said the midfielder.

"When you get knocked down you take a step back and start thinking 'should I or shouldn't I do this or that'.

"But when you're confident you say 'yeah, I'm going to do it, I'm going to pass it, I'm going to shoot'."

That confidence was nowhere better demonstrated against the Robins than when Leon Britton picked up the ball and ran half the length of the pitch to score Swansea's sixth.

"That was different class! But then so were all the lads," McLeod said.

"The dressing-room was buzzing afterwards, but (manager) Kenny Jackett gave us 10 minutes then put a stop to it.

"He said: 'Listen lads, you've got MK Dons on Tuesday, it's alright winning 7-1 but you still only get three points and we need to get another three on Tuesday."
