Bruce: We Had Enough Chances To Beat Swansea

Bruce: We Had Enough Chances To Beat Swansea

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce said his side created enough chances to beat Swansea City yesterday.

The Black Cats started the game off well and created problems early on for the Swans. John O'Shea saw a header hit the top of the crossbar and Gyan also went through on goal but Vorm did well to rush out and make a save.

Swansea City also had plenty of chances, and with both teams lacking any finishing quality in front of goal, a point was probably a fair result.

Bruce said:

"It`s been a frustrating , difficult and disappointing week,"

"In the three games we have created enough to win a football match, that`s for sure.

"It`s not often you come away and have five or six opportunities like we did today, and what separates this level from any other is your ability to take your chances.

"We haven`t and that`s the hugely disappointing thing."

"We have gone two games unbeaten away from home, it was a difficult start, but we lost the derby which in the north east we know how disappointed people get with that.

"That`s the expectation we have created. A draw away from home is not good enough anymore but we have to have a reality check somewhere.

"We are disappointed as in the three games we have had enough to win the match and usually away from home you don`t get five or six chances like we had today and you have to take them."

Typical Managerial rhetoric by Bruce. What he doesn't say is that Swansea had more and BETTER chances to Beat Sunderland. A lot of teams are going to hand Sunderland a hammering if they defend like that. Blinkered Bruce? I think so.

I agree Phil. Does he not realise that we had a few more chances than his side, and they were more open chances that we should have scored? Graham's close range header being the obvious one

they weren't that good really, I can't see them doing well this season judging from their performance against us. But we also need to start scoring soon before we get into a rut
