Swansea eager to build on unexpected three Europa League points

Michael Laudrup says the main goal for his Swansea City team is to swiftly add to the three points they recorded in their opening Europa League group stage fixture on Thursday night.

The Swans defeated Valencia 3-0 in Spain in a largely unexpected result in Group A and now get to play twice at home against Swiss side St Gallen (October 3) and Russian outfit Kuban Krasnodar (October 24) to add to that bounty.

"It sets us up for the next five games," he said. "No-one expected us to get three points in Valencia and now we have the next two games at home.

"If we don't win the next game at home we're back where we started, but we can be happy today about this great result.

"I don't know whether we are favourites, I wouldn't say so after one game. Not many expected this but it is only one result out of six."
