Swansea boss enjoys Abbott debut

Swansea boss Kenny Jackett says the early signs are good that new striker Pawel Abbott will fit into the team.

Abbott made his Swans debut as a late substitute in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Gillingham, replacing Bayo Akinfenwa to join Lee Trundle in attack.

"Pawel is a player who could play either with Lee or with Bayo and that's a nice combination," Jackett said.

"He has the ability to get in behind defenders, he's sharp onto things and has a terrific goal-scoring record."

The win put Swansea back into the League One promotion play-off places, but Jackett admitted they were made to work hard for the three points.

"Gillingham caused us lots of problems, particularly from set-pieces, but we came through and scored two terrific goals," Jackett added.
