Steve Cooper says high-flying Swansea City will soon be “smashed in the face” if they pay attention to the Championship table.
Swansea are second to leaders Leeds on goal difference as they prepare to host 20th-place Reading on Saturday.
Cooper believes opponents are changing tactics to combat his side and insists the Swans will not get carried away.
“Regarding the league position, I think it’s dangerous to think about that,” the Swansea head coach said.
“There are results every week in the Championship that surprise you.
“If you pay too much attention (to the table) it can quickly smash you in the face, so we will be mindful of just doing our job.”
Swansea made superb start to the season, banking 16 points from their opening six Championship games.
But they suffered a first home league defeat since Boxing Day in their last Liberty Stadium outing, against Nottingham Forest, and drew 0-0 at Bristol City last weekend.
Cooper believes opponents are setting up to combat his team’s possession game – and says they must find a way to cope.
