Gower has yet to notch a Swansea City goal following his summer move from Southend but it is not for the want of trying as the woodwork has denied him several times to date.

But with Ferrie Bodde and Jordi Gomez – the Swans two leading scorers – missing Jones believes that this could be the moment that Swans fans have waited for with Gower ready to take the limelight.

“Swansea are my team – I am a Swansea Jack.” he told Wales on Sunday

“And for whatever I achieved in my career after leaving, I will always look back on my days at the Vetch with pride and affection.

“So when you hear so many people from all over the country talk about the job Roberto is doing down there it is a wonderful thing.

“And, being a Swansea boy, I know how much it will mean to everyone connected with the club to get one over on Cardiff. When I was at the club Cardiff tended to be above us, but the few derbies I played in were always hard affairs.

“But they have their chance now and they know all those whose heart is at Swansea and the Vetch are behind them.

“The Vetch was a fantastic ground with a great atmosphere and hopefully it will be the same at the Liberty for this one.

“There will be goals but I certainly think Swansea have what it takes to win it, so I’m going for a 3-2 win.

“I like (Mark) Gower and he is due a goal, so I think he could be the one that becomes an instant Swansea legend.

“He’s an old Spurs boy like me who plays on the wing – like I used to – so I’d love to see him get the winner. But I don’t mind who scores, as long as it is Swansea who get the win!”
