Jackett: We Were Beaten By A Better Side

Jackett: We Were Beaten By A Better Side

Former Swansea City boss and current Millwall manager Kenny Jackett admits his side were beaten by the better team today.

Rodgers said before the game that they would be up against a 'supercharged' Millwall team but they were hardly that as the Swans dominated with 60% possession to win 2-0.

Jackett said:

'We were beaten by the better side - it's as simple as that. We just couldn't really get going and that's a bit disappointing.

'We had a couple of chances in the second half through James Henry and Hamer Bouazza but I was just waiting for us to get our game going and it didn't happen.

'We didn't play how I know we can and Swansea need to take credit for that because they held us off very well and got their goals.

'We couldn't bring our key players into the game.

'When you see what Swansea have done after getting promoted, building each year, we need to take heart from that and look to do something similar.

'To keep the play-off race going until after Easter is a great effort from our lads. We've had to win a lot of big games to keep our season going and maybe this was one too many.'
