Bojan urges Stoke to build momentum following Swansea victory

The striker scored the only goal of the game from the spot on Monday and is determined to continue putting in good performances for the side.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Stoke City forward Bojan has urged his teammates to keep their winning streak going after edging out Swansea City on Monday.

The former Barcelona striker won and scored a fourth minute penalty against the Swans, with his early goal proving to be the difference between the two sides.

That win took them to three consecutive victories in the Premier League, and elevated them to eleventh in the table following a disappointing start to the season.

Bojan hopes there will be plenty more three-point hauls to follow, with Stoke suddenly within four points of the European places.

“It’s a great three points for us, especially with the game being on the back of an international break,” he told stokecityfc.com.

“Now we have to keep focused and continue doing what we have been doing.

"We need to continue this, and make it four and five successive wins, because we know we are capable of that we know we can be in an even better position.”

Bojan’s goal was his second in five games this season, as he looks to rediscover the kind of form he was enjoying prior to an unfortunate injury last season.

He quickly made himself a key player at the Britannia after joining in the summer of 2014, with a number of impressive performances justifying the praise Stoke received in having secured his services.

A bad knee injury suffered against Rochdale in the FA Cup ruled him out for the remainder of the season, though, and he says he just wants to thank everyone for their support with his showings on the field.

“I feel better with each game that comes along now – I am gradually feeling stronger and I am feeling fitter too,” he added.

“Everybody here has been unbelievable and have helped me so much. I just want to thank them with good performances on the pitch. I always try to help my team and today I have done that with a goal, which has made me happy and given me great confidence.”
