'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Allen & Rodgers Support For Williams

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers and midfielder Joe Allen gave their support to defender Ashley Williams after his early own goal helped Derby County win yesterday's match 2-1 at Pride Park.

A rare costly error from the Welsh international saw the defender pass back to goalkeeper Dorus de Vries, but he wasn't between the posts and had to race across to try and prevent the ball from going over the line.

Joe Allen says Ashley Williams has been one of our star players:

'These things happen to defenders in football.'

'He has been a rock for us all season,'

'And one of our star players.'


Rodgers also gave his support to Williams:

'We make 100 passes likes that in a game,'

'It was just something that was freak - but that put us on the back foot and gave them something to hold onto.

'Ash has been magnificent this season. He has played game after game but sometimes you have games likes that.

'And he was obviously disappointed with that header early on.'
