Bafetimbi Gomis says this season has been disappointing for Swansea but he wants to end it on a positive note.
The Swans have spent much of the current campaign at the wrong end of the table and the club axed Garry Monk as manager in December amid a poor run of form.
However, three wins in their last four fixtures prior to the international break saw the Swans pull clear of the bottom three, with the Liberty Stadium outfit now 10 points ahead of Sunderland in 18th spot.
Striker Gomis managed four Premier League goals in August but he has added just one more to his name since, as well as a solitary FA Cup strike.
The Frenchman concedes this year has been disappointing for both himself and his club but he is determined to finish the campaign strongly ahead of Saturday’s tough trip to Stoke.
He told the club’s official website: “The season has not been good for the team or myself. It has not gone the way we expected it would.
“But we have the quality in the squad to end the season strongly and improve our league position.
“We have seven games left – all are cup finals, in my opinion. If we want to finish near the top half, then we need good results in these games.”
