Swansea City press conference Live: Updates as Steve Cooper previews Luton clash

Lowe improving team - better with him?

I don’t just mean Jamal. All of the new players that have come in. I think we’re making steps forward. Jamal’s one of the new faces in the building. We’ll continue to work with these boys plus the existing lads from last season and keep aiming to improve. We know where we want to get to.

We like Jamal a lot. We really worked hard to get him in the summer. He’s always played out wide and we asked him to play centrally. He’s an excellent lad and only wants to get better. He’s fitted right in, and his family in Swansea as well. He’s only going to get better.

Tight at the top

We’re just focused on trying to win the next game. If you get too into it this is what can happen, things can change so much in a matter of a couple of games. We’ve already played so many, you’ve just got to focus on what’s next. When there are times in the season maybe when the FA Cup week or international break comes up and you can reflect on where you’re at, maybe that’s when we’ll do it.

Pleased to be back at home, what do you expect after Boro loss?

They’re a professional group. It’s always disappointing to lose a game of football. We’ve moved on already. We know we didn’t play as well as we’d have liked but you can’t dwell on it. We’ll be ready, that's for sure.

Welcome

Afternoon all.

Swansea City don't have too much time to dwell on Wednesday night's defeat to Middlesbrough, with Luton Town next up on the agenda for Steve Cooper's side at the Liberty Stadium.

We'll be hearing from the Swans boss in about an hour or so as he previews the visit of the Hatters.

Stick around.

Jack Army turning out in force online

Swansea City fans will hope to be back at the Liberty Stadium in the near future.

The Jack Army have been unable to watch their side live in action since the 0-0 draw with West Brom in March owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there has been plenty to cheer since the lockdown, with Steve Cooper's side collecting 43 points from the 72 on offer - a tally bettered only by Brentford in the Championship - since supporters have not been present.

And it seems the Swansea faithful have been doing all in their power to watch the action from home, with games continuing to be streamed live on SwansTV.

The club distributed more than 9,000 streaming codes to season ticket holders before the 2020/21 campaign got underway, and more than 6,000 of those have been redeemed.

Cooper's men are watched by an average of 12,700 fans via the SwansTV service in Championship matches this season. This includes games that have not been available to season ticket holders and UK fans, meaning the average would no doubt be even higher given that EFL rules state clubs can only broadcast Sky's main matches to dark market areas.
