THAT’S more like it.

A comprehensive 3 - 0 victory over Norwich at the Liberty Stadium means Swans fans can sleep a little more comfortably tonight - although there can be no let up in their bid for Premiership survival.

The comfortable win by Garry Monk’s boys lifts them to 13th in the table, five places above the relegation zone, following a match against another team fighting to retain a place in the league.

And the manner in which the game was won, with Swansea always in control, has put a spring back in the step of fans.

Marc Barrow tweeted: “Most convincing home win of the season for us today. Bony was unplayable! Routledge and Jonathan de Guzman played very well Ashley Williams was a rock again.”

Fan Julie Kissick tweeted: “Garry Monk's black & white army’ ringing out across the Liberty Stadium.

“Superb noise from Swans fans.”

On Facebook, Mike Phillips said: “Good solid performance by the Swans today apart from five minutes at the start of the second half Norwich didn't have a sniff.

“Ash and Chico were solid at the back , Rangel and Ben pushed forward but it was the midfield who won it today for me. A repeat against Hull next week please.”

Simon Evans added: “Swans playing much better under Monk.

“Well done boys, good three points today, and plenty more to come.”

Nathan Dance-Griffiths singled out the team stalwart Ashley Williams for praise.

He said: “Ashley Williams’ block off the line at 2-0 was absolutely crucial. Each player showed heart today and that is what we need to stay up. Follow this up against Hull and we're pretty much there.”

But Henrik Joergensen added a note of caution.

He said: “Well done, but still only nine out of 24 points. Europe and FA Cup out, not good enough, and still have to look at the relegation zone. Enjoy the moment, but next week, who knows, might be different.”

    Onward and upwards indeed, I thought Monks post match interview was good he was very objective it shows he's not taking anything for granted and not getting carried away with 1 good win. Well done to all for today's result.

    Much better today, attitude, focus, working hard for 90 minutes. It is the Swansea City we want to see more of. Can we back it up with a win at Hull and record back to back PL wins for the first time since 2012? The talent is there and I think we will win next Saturday. Well done lads. onwards & upwards now we hope.
