Swansea City's Scott Sinclair scores his side's first goal against Bolton

Scott Sinclair is confident Swansea City have secured their Premier League status despite the Welsh side still needing a point to secure their place in the top flight.

The Swans winger scored in his side's 1-1 draw at Bolton to move up to 11th in the table.

"I think we are safe but we have to keep going and finish as high as we can in the league," said Sinclair.

Swansea host relegated Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers' side need one point to mathematically secure top-flight survival with three games of the season left against Wolves, Manchester United and Liverpool.

But historically the Welsh side's current total has always been enough to guarantee a team's survival.

Sinclair says the Swans are determined to finish as high up the table as possioble.

"There is a lot of speculation that we are safe and we are all fine, but we have the characters and the mentality here to go all the way and finish as high as we can," said Sinclair.

Swansea City surrendered a 2-0 lead when the met Wolves in October, the Welsh side coming away with a 2-2 draw at Molineux.

"That was another game where we were 2-0 up and they came back in the last few minutes, but we move on and hopefully we can get the three points at home," said Sinclair.

Swansea have won plaudits for their style of play and their peformances in their first season in English football's top flight.

Sinclair admitted Swansea will be more than happy with a mid-table finish at the end of this campaign.

"If you asked any player, or any fans or anybody dealing with Swansea and said at the start of the season that we would be around mid-table, I think everybody would take that."
