Sinclair: 'Swansea's Premier safety not assured yet'

SCOTT SINCLAIR has warned Swansea that the job of securing Premier League survival is not finished yet as they prepare to face struggling QPR at Loftus Road tonight.

Swansea had climbed as high as eighth in mid-March after wins over Wigan, Manchester City and Fulham.

But that triumvirate of successes has been followed by a trio of defeats against Everton, Tottenham and Newcastle, meaning the Welsh club are yet to be mathematically guaranteed a second season in the top flight.

Even though Brendan Rodgers' side enjoy an 11-point buffer over the relegation places with six games left, winger Sinclair says no-one at the club is taking safety for granted.

The 23-year-old said: "We don't think the job is done. We need to keep winning. The target is to try to get that 10th position, but the main target has always been to stay up, and we need a couple more wins before thinking about moving up the table.

"We definitely don't have enough points yet. We need to keep going. There is more pressure on us to get results as everyone is fighting for survival."

While Swansea are closing in on safety, QPR have no margin for error.

Mark Hughes' side are above the drop zone on goal difference and with games against Chelsea, Tottenham and City to come, they will be desperate to pick up three points.

History would suggest they have a good chance of claiming the spoils as Swansea have never won at Loftus Road, and they were hammered 4-0 there last season when the sides met in the Championship.

Sinclair added: "It will be tough. They are fighting for their lives. Loftus Road is a very difficult place to go."
