MALVIN KAMARA is under no illusions about the size of the task facing Town at Swansea tonight.
But the winger insists Andy Ritchie’s men are more than capable of collecting a fourth straight victory against Roberto Martinez’s multi-national side, who are fourth in League I.
Former Port Vale player Kamara, who started last season with Swansea’s fierce South Wales rivals Cardiff, says confidence is high in the Galpharm camp.
And he reckons that while 14th-placed Town had a bad patch during last Saturday’s FA Cup first-round tie at Accrington Stanley, the fact that they hit back from two down to win, through his brace and a Luke Beckett winner, is a real positive.
“When they got those early goals, perhaps some people thought it was another one of those days,” said Kamara, referring to the dismal spell of seven defeats in 10 matches which preceded the successive home league wins over his former club Vale and Hartlepool.
“But we stuck to it, got that crucial goal back before half-time and really bossed the second half.
“I think we showed what we are about as a side, that we have a bit of grit and that we can score goals.
“We did go through a blip in form, but the boss and his coaching staff were great throughout that spell.
“They never let anyone’s head go down and ensured we remained upbeat and together as a unit.
“We worked really hard on the training ground and perhaps the fruits of our labours are showing now.”
Kamara had a rough time at the Liberty Stadium with Port Vale last season – his side slumped 3-0 – but Town’s record there is bright.
They fought back from two down to draw on their first visit two seasons ago, and last time around, won 2-1 with a Gary Taylor-Fletcher double.
Kamara accepts Swansea are a talented team, but insists Town should have no fear about facing them.
“If we play to the best of our ability, we know we can beat anyone in the division,” said the Sierra Leone international.
“Our problem has been in hitting that high standard regularly.
“Having got these three wins in a row, it’s vital that we don’t take our foot off the pedal.
“We want more wins and we want to keep climbing the table.”
