Cape Town - Swansea City midfielder Leroy Fer has urged his team to make the most of their advantage in the battle for Premier League survival.

The Swans lifted themselves out of the bottom three at the weekend as they beat Everton 1-0 and Hull City suffered defeat against Sunderland.

With only games against Sunderland and West Brommich Albion left, Swansea have their destiny in their own hands now.

Two wins would ensure they stay in the top flight for at least another season.

“We go into the next two games with a lot of momentum and in a position where we know our Premier League status is in our hands,” Fer told the club's official website. 

“That’s the best situation for us. We know if we do what we need to do then we don’t have to look over our shoulder.

“If we win that game then the pressure is all on Hull.

“But we must focus on ourselves first and foremost. Sunderland showed last week against Hull that they are a proud team that will keep on battling and fighting for their fans."
