Sousa full of praise for victorious Swansea

Swansea boss Paulo Sousa was full of praise for his side after they overcame league leaders West Brom at The Hawthorns on Tuesday night.

The Swans got the best out of a lacklustre meeting that ended 1-0 to the visitors thanks to a second goal in as many games to striker Craig Beattie and Sousa labeled the win as 'very important'.

"To win away against the top team in the table is an important night for me," he said.

"It was an important three points for us, it gives us a lot more confidence.

"When you win an important game like this one, an away game, against the team that's top of the table, a team that is going for promotion, it is always important.

"It tells us we are in a good way and this is what we wanted.

"When you get victories, you get more conviction and more confidence."

Sousa also lauded the performance of Beattie who is getting better and better in the white of Swansea.

"He's one of the players who is improving a lot but everyone has got a job and when everyone does their job it helps us to score," added the Swans boss.

"And for Craig, as a striker, you need to score and if you score then it's important for your confidence."
