Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits they need to win their upcoming home games after a dismal run.
The Swans need to begin picking up points again quickly, and with their next four league fixtures seeing them play Reading and Wigan at the Liberty Stadium before travelling to Premier League champions Manchester City and then hosting early pace-setters and European Cup-winners Chelsea, Laudrup has stressed the importance of those first two home assignments.
"We just have to admit that the numbers never lie and it is three games with no points and no goals," Laudrup said.
"But the next two games are home games and I think we all know in these games we need some points.
"We have still only played six games and we have seven points - that is still acceptable.
"But now we have to take the second round of six games and I think we should at least get the same amount of points from them, and we have to start well in the two home games."
