Blackwell's Thought After Swansea City Defeat

Blackwell's Thought After Swansea City Defeat

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell shared his thoughts after watching his side lose at the Liberty Stadium yesterday afternoon.

Despite dominating large periods of the game, and playing against a Swansea side who ended the game with just 9 men, the Blades went home empty handed.

Blackwell said:

'I'm not complaining about the performance because we dominated most of the game. But if you give goals away like we did, you won't win games.

'We started strongly, with a string of corners and after they had a 25-minute spell we were on top again going into the break.

'We are so comfortable playing away from home now that we were like the home side and then they get two goals from breakaways. We probably thought that it would just happen for us but we go back with nothing in our pocket and a lesson learned.

'When you are on top you have to kill teams off and hurt people with deliveries, which we didn't do.

'We were aware that they hadn't done very well recently and there would be frustration in the crowd but credit to Swansea, they battled for their lives, which is frustrating because Mark Bunn has picked the ball out of the net twice and virtually had nothing else to do.'
