ASHLEY Williams revealed that Michael Laudrup stressed the need to score before Swansea beat Queens Park Rangers 4-1 on Saturday.

Swansea had not netted for three games leading up to that win and sold last season's leading marksman Danny Graham in the transfer window.

But Swansea did not look short of firepower against Rangers as Angel Rangel, Pablo Hernandez and Michu twice hit the target.

"The gaffer set down a bit of a challenge before the game," said Williams.

"We hadn't scored in three games, we hadn't beaten Chelsea, Sunderland or West Ham.

"We wanted to win, we wanted to play good attacking football and we wanted to finish off our chances."

The victory took Swansea up to 37 points, all but securing their Premier League status for another season.

Next they travel to Merseyside to play Liverpool before the Capital One Cup meeting with Bradford.

"We're not even thinking about being safe, we're just trying to churn out the wins and get as many points as we can," said Williams.

"It was a massive three points on Saturday.

"It's been a really good week for me with two wins (the other a 2-1 triumph for Wales over Austria) after the West Ham disappointment."

    Yeah...Ash is probably the main man. The linch-pin. The rock.... Coveted by many managers I have no doubt.
