Vokes: We Can Take Confidence

15 August 2016

Sam Vokes feels the squad can take confidence from a performance ‘with freedom’ against Swansea City on Saturday.

Vokes saw his dipping half-volley from outside the box saved superbly by an inspired Lukasz Fabianski in just one of a plethora of second-half chances.

And the Wales international forward was encouraged by the amount that they created, despite not getting the desired result.

He said: “I didn’t catch my shot as cleanly as I would have liked but he got down to it well.

“The keeper Fabianski played very well today and it’s a frustrating afternoon but I think we can take confidence from the performance.

“We played with a lot of freedom and showed that we deserved to be here. We didn’t look out of place at all and dominated the game but we just couldn’t stick the ball in the net.”

Liverpool are the next visitors to Turf Moor on Saturday and Vokes feels the crowd can play an important part in helping the team.

“They’re all massive games and Liverpool will be tough. If we can get the crowd bouncing and behind us we’ll attack it as we did today and look to get some points on the board.”
