Dorus De Vries admits the Swans didn't create enough good chances yesterday as they lost 1-0 to arch rivals Cardiff City at the Liberty Stadium.
Far too often this season Swansea City haven't created enough chances to win games. Despite dominating possession in many games - yesterday's not being one of them - the Swans have only drawn and lost them as a result of not creating chances, or creating them but lacking a clinical finish.
Sunday's derby game, we were lacking both. Scott Sinclair probably had our best chances in the second half with some superb solo runs from the halfway line, but he was unable to keep his composure and fired shots off target.
Dutch goalkeeper Dorus de Vries could do nothing to keep Craig Bellamy's shot from flying into the corner of the net, as he produced a moment of top quality to win the game for the Bluebirds - a game that looked like heading for a well earned point for both teams.
It has to be said, Cardiff City created by far the best chances. It was a reverse really of the game at their stadium earlier in the season. Jay Bothroyd should have opened the scoring within the first minute, but he shot wide about 10 yards out in front of goal. Cardiff also hit the post and de Vries was fortunate that the opposition couldn't net a rebound after he could only parry Ramsey's effort.
'It`s a big blow,'
'It took a great, great strike from Bellamy. When it happens just a couple of minutes before the end, then it`s really hard to get back into it, especially in a derby game because they will back-up again.
'It`s hard to break them down then, especially when, in the whole 90 minutes, we didn`t create enough chances, simple as that, not good enough chances.
'It`s a big blow but we have to look forward to Middlesbrough now and pick ourselves up again. We have showed this season that we can bounce back after a disappointing result or a bad performance and Middlesbrough is our next obstacle.'
