Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup wants his sides form to be strong come season's end following a poor recent run.
The Capital One Cup winners remain ninth on the Premier League table despite failing to win in their last six outings and Laudrup hopes that turns around in their final four fixtures against Manchester City (at home this Saturday), Wigan Athletic, Manchester United and Fulham.
"You are always disappointed when you have a bad run," Laudrup told reporters. "Achieving 40 points after the cup win was very important, and we managed to do that.
"We have to accept that the results have been disappointing, but it's not my job to find excuses - I want to find solutions, but the fact is that is our only win so far after the final and we are trying to change that.
"We know we have some difficult games coming up. We are still ninth, however, and that says a lot about what we did up until the cup final - I think we over performed in terms of points."
