Football - Tiendalli pleased with Swans depth

Dwight Tiendalli has no doubt Swansea will secure another three points against Hull if they can replicate their display in beating Newcastle.

Swansea turned around their struggles on home turf over the last nine months with one of their best displays of the season against the Magpies in Wednesday's 3-0 win.

Hull, who have surprised many with their solid start to the season, are the next visitors to the Liberty Stadium on Monday night with Swansea looking to move over the 20-point mark with four games to go to the halfway point of the Premier League campaign.

And full-back Tiendalli believes a good performance should be enough to do just that.

The Holland international said: "We have to make every home game difficult, even against the big teams.

"On Monday against Hull if we reach our normal level we have to win that game.

"Me as a person, I do not look so much at Hull.

"We have a great squad with great players and if we reach our normal level then I'm positive we will win on Monday."

Tiendalli also believes this season's Swans squad has greater depth than that which finished ninth and won the Capital One Cup

"Our squad is stronger than last season. There is no doubt.

"You can see the squad is bigger and you can see when we have injuries there is always someone who can come in and do the job.

"In football, when someone is injured another person has to come in and pick it up.

"That is an important thing this season."

Tiendalli's move to rejoin the Swans prior to their Europa League game in Romania against Petrolul Ploiesti came as something of a surprise after he had been released in the summer.

The 28-year-old missed out on a full pre-season and has had to wait for injury to Angel Rangel to provide him with a chance.

But he insists he is happy to take any first-team action as it comes.

"I have not been frustrated," he said.

"I came here with no games in my feet and I need to get the rhythm and my fitness.

"But I feel better, I feel good and sharp. Now I have to continue.

"I'm not at my best, but I think things are good.

"Against Man City I felt good and I felt good against Newcastle. These games are good for me to perform well.

"But it's all about the team performance and at the moment the team is performing well."
