Pratley: The Team Wasn't Happy on Wednesday

Pratley: The Team Wasn't Happy on Wednesday

Darren Pratley has spoken about Wednesday's game and Rodgers' decision to bring him off at half time as the Swans slumped to their first home defeat of the season, losing 1-0 to Bristol City.

After conceding the winning goal early on, the team looked frustrated during the first half as Garry Monk argued with Ashley Williams and Darren Pratley in particular.

Pratley admitted that he thought the team 'wasn't happy' during the game, and said that you'd 'have to ask' the manager the reasons why he was replaced at half time.

Fans don't really need reasons from Rodgers as to why he was taken off. His performance was lacking throughout the opening 45 minutes as he continually conceded possession and did little to help us back into the game.

Pratley said:

'I played 45 minutes. Me and Orlandi came off and that's the manager's decision,'

'Whatever the manager decides to do, he does, whether that's bringing me off or anyone else.

'I don't think the team was happy.

'The manager's obviously pulled me off for a reason and you'd have to ask him why.

'I'm a player at the end of the day, so what he says goes.'

'We're obviously disappointed to lose at home and lose the unbeaten run,' said Pratley.

'It was an off night, I suppose.

'Of 15 games this season, this game and the (Nottingham) Forest game were the ones in which we've been poor.

'But we've done okay. We've got to put it down as a bad one and move on to Sunday.'

'None of the boys turned up not wanting to win, we just didn't get it,'

'After the game on Sunday we all came out wanting to show it wasn't a freak result, but that didn't happen.

'Now we've got a game on Sunday and we've got to put it right.'
