Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers said his side weren't good enough defensively as they lost to relegation-threatened Preston North End 2-1 this afternoon.
The Swans manager said the performance from his team didn't deserve anything and as a result, they've lost ground on their promotion rivals, as a 6-0 win for Norwich City today puts them 4 points clear of us.
Dorus de Vries conceded an early pen, before Ashley Williams equalised to put the scores 1-1 at half time. Hume grabbed a second goal with 7 minutes remaining though to deny Swansea a share of the points.
Rodgers told the Official Site:
I said to the players afterwards that the way we defended we can't be too disappointed with the result,''
'We didn't deserve anything.
'If we are going to defend like that over the next seven games then we can't expect to be successful.
'We never made a good start by giving a penalty away after just two minutes. Although the reaction was good, defensively we weren't good enough today. We weren't at our best and got punished.
'It disappointing, but we haven't got enough time to dwell on it. We've got seven games to go and the next one is a massive one against Norwich on Saturday.
'If we are going to challenge for that second promotion spot, we need to win against Norwich.''
The pitch was difficult; it wasn't the best,''
'It hadn't been cut, worked on or watered because it certainly didn't look like that for England's Under-21 international in the week.
'I'm surprised that at this level you have top play on a pitch that hasn't been cut, but it's Preston pitch and that's their prerogative.''
