Billy Davies believed Swansea City played his Nottingham Forest side at 'the right time' as they've now gone 8 games without a win.
After a superb run to get up into the top 6, they now risk losing their play-off place after failing to win in the previous 8 matches, as Burnley and Reading look to take it off them - both are 3 points away with a game in hand.
Billy Davies barely spoke about the actual game in his post match interview, preferring to keep on talking about how 'convinced' he is that his team are out of a bad run - something he can't prove until their next win. Convinced because he believes his team will bounce back after the 2-week international break, but he hid the fact that his side lost an important game against another team targeting automatic promotion.
At least he did admit that Swansea City were the better side, and without sounding biased, they were. We dominated large periods of the game, and created far more clear cut chances in front of goal, but we didn't make the scoreline more reflective of how the game panned out.
Davies went on and on saying:
'Getting to this break is crucial, I am confident that our bad period is now over, it will be a well deserved break.
'I am delighted we have got to the end, we will now have a well-deserved break which will give the players time off with their families and we will have time to get our injured players back.
'This is now an eight-game league and the last eight games will be very interesting, it is far from over and I'm very excited.
'This is not about where we are with eight games to go, you have to look no further than Blackpool this time last season, they were in ninth place with 51 points, Forest were on 67 points, but it was Blackpool who ended up in the Premiership.
'There is everything to play for, we're sitting in the top six and I have no doubt anything's possible, including second place and automatic promotion.'
'Swansea were a much better side, their passing was better and they looked much sharper and we gave the ball away too much.
'They played against a Forest side at the right time, hitting the post with a minute to go is typical of the way our last few games have gone.'
