Brendan Rodgers has warned his team that they cannot become complacent after losing their first home game on Wednesday night.
The Swansea City boss felt that Sunday's derby-win against Cardiff City affected the performance against Bristol City - as they ended our unbeaten start at home.
Rodgers now says it's vital that we get the motivation back up and return to winning ways against Middlesbrough on Sunday after Wednesday's 'blip':
"What I`ve learnt with this group is they deal with pressure well,"
"In the big games they are confident enough to pass the ball around and they show no fear.
"But when you play against the teams you should win against, there is an expectancy there that is sometimes difficult to control.
"You have to be able to do it in the big games and the ones you are expected to win.
"Sub-consciously, if you are playing a team down the bottom there is a natural feeling of complacency.
"But it is about ensuring we don`t become complacent - because that`s when you will trip up.
"But I haven`t seen complacency from this group yet and there is certainly no crisis here after one defeat.
"We are not arrogant. We lost a game we wanted to win, but now there is a big motivation to get back on track.
"The players work very hard and the consequence of that will be success.
"It`s my job to make sure we keep the ambition. It`s vital we get that momentum going again."
Rodgers also added that the Cardiff game affected the players on Wednesday:
"There`s no doubt the Cardiff game made an impact on our performance on Wednesday because it was such a high.
"It`s never good to lose, but, as long as you learn from it, well, that`s important.
"It`s something we are getting prepared for and, along with the motivation to get back on track, it should see us return to normal on Sunday."
