'keep hitting the heights'
ALAN Tate has urged Nathan Dyer to continue hitting his early-season heights after insisting the winger should have already received an England call-up.
Dyer has been in sensational form for Swansea City so far.
The diminutive winger started in style at Queens Park Rangers, where he scored the first brace of his professional career as Swansea stormed to a 5-0 win.
He was also at his fleet-footed best against West Ham and Sunderland.

But the former Southampton man was overlooked when Roy Hodgson named his squad to face Moldova and Ukraine.
Tate reckons Dyer should have made the cut and become the first Swansea player to represent England while at the club.
And he has told his team-mate to continue knocking on the international door at Aston Villa today.
"Nathan should have been involved but geographically we have never been a club that has been fancied outside of Swansea," said Tate.
"He should have been called up whether it was before (Raheem) Sterling or (Adam) Lallana.
"If Nathan plays well and gets a couple of goals then who knows, his time might be next.
"He can only play well for Swansea and not worry about England.
"He wants to play for England but the call is not going to come unless he carries on the form he has shown over the past year
