Oumar Niasse was on target twice after coming off the bench to give the Tigers a 2-1 victory at the KCOM Stadium, a result that leaves Marco Silva’s side just a point adrift of safety.
“We are very happy to take the three points,” said Jakupovic.
“I said on Friday that it was a massive, must-win game and so of course we are all happy that we did win it. Now we have a full week to prepare for the next one.
“There were no nerves in the build-up, we just knew we had to show a positive reaction after our disappointment at Leicester. We showed that but we have to continue with this now and try to take something from our game at Everton next weekend.
“Every game gives us another chance and we have to fight in every one.”
The introduction of Niasse in the second half gave the Tigers the attacking spark they needed and Jakupovic was quick to praise the on-loan Everton man, as well as the contribution of Niasse’s strike-partner Abel Hernandez.
“Oumar’s impact was amazing, scoring two goals so quickly,” added Jakupovic.
“We know the quality he has and we know he can help us in our fight. We also have to remember the contribution of Abel Hernandez as well, he worked so hard for the team. We looked very strong with both of them together.”
Happy with the result, there was still one frustration for Jakupovic.
“I am not happy with the one goal we conceded,” said the goalkeeper, reflecting on Alfie Mawson’s consolation effort for the Swans in added time.
“I said to the lads after going 2-0 up, ‘we make sure we keep the clean sheet now’. But overall, of course, I am delighted with the three points.”
