Swansea's Nathan Dyer: That makes up for miss at the Mestalla
NATHAN Dyer reckons yesterday's goal against Crystal Palace made amends for the chance he squandered in Valencia.
With Swansea City 1-0 up at the Mastella, Dyer collected the ball just inside the area.
As Alejandro Pozuelo screamed for a pass Dyer opted to shoot, but failed to make a proper connection and dragged his effort wide.
Three days later, the former Southampton man made no mistake against the Eagles, burying Alvaro Vazquez's pull-back to seal Swansea's second Premier League win of the season.
It was his first goal since grabbing a brace in February's 5-0 Capital One Cup trouncing of Bradford.
Now the winger has targeted more goals in a bid to beat last season's tally of six.
"The longer you go without a goal the more agitated you become," he said. "I'll be more confident in front of goal next time and hopefully I'll get more.
"We had some good chances to score goals yesterday and should have more than two.
"It was a terrible shot from me in Valencia so it was nice to correct that and score. I was pleased. Everybody wants to score goals, that's where you get the glory from.
"The goalscorers get the headlines so you want to score as much as you can.
"We know we can get in those areas, we just need to see whether it happens or not.
"It's about confidence, if you're not a player associated with getting goals, if you do get one or two you get the confidence to get into those positions and take more risks and have more shots."
