Rodgers: We Should Have Had A Penalty

Rodgers: We Should Have Had A Penalty

Brendan Rodgers says an eight-minute spell cost his side the game yesterday at Elland Road, as Leeds United came back from behind to win 2-1.

Stephen Dobbie put the Swans in front early on but Johnson and Becchio both scored in an eight minute spell to give Leeds the win which jumps them up to 5th in the Championship table.

Rodgers said it was a 'terrific' game but says the referee should have awarded us a penalty in the second half:

'It was a terrific game but an eight-minute spell cost us the result,'

'Swansea haven't won here since 1949 so history was against us but importantly we gave a good performance.

'I thought it was a clear penalty when Joe Allen went down. In any other area of the field it would have been a free-kick.

'Joe showed a great touch and the defender brought him down, so it was a definite penalty. I thought so at the time and I had my view confirmed when I saw it again.

'When Becchio collided with our keeper Dorus De Vries I am sure it was accidental. Becchio is an honest guy and I am sure he was going for the ball. Dorus reacted but it was never a sending-off offence, so the referee got it right.

'The Leeds supporters are very passionate. They like to see their team dominate the opposition but we came here and dominated for long spells.

'We are not far away from getting an away win but we have to cut out the kind of spells that saw us concede the two goals.'

The ref was clearly told by the linesman that he had got the De Vries booking wrong and it looked like he leveled things up by denying Swansea a fairly clear cut penalty a few minutes later - De Vries cost you a point there with his reaction it seems
