Rodgers Looks For His Side To Bounce Back

Rodgers Looks For His Side To Bounce Back

Swansea City manager is looking for his side to bounce back once again after last Saturday's poor 3-1 defeat at Norwich City.

The Swans put in arguably their worst performance of the season last weekend at Carrow Road, and they have the opportunity to end their 5-match losing away run when they travel to struggling Wolves on Saturday (12.45pm, live on Sky Sports).

Rodgers' side bounced back after a 4-1 defeat at Chelsea by beating Stoke City 2-0 at home, and the Irishman will be looking for the same sort of reaction when they take on Mick McCarthy's side.

'The way we've bounced back in the past says a lot about our mentality,'

'When you lose any game it's difficult, but it's important that you reflect on areas to improve.

'We are very motivated and our environment is a positive one. We can get better and improve and the players that we have here love to bounce back and do better in the next game.

'The players have the bravery and courage and this is a league where every game is like a cup final for us.

'It's a wonderful league that we're in, however, and it's still really important that we enjoy ourselves.

'We didn't start well at Norwich and we ended up giving ourselves an uphill task. If you concede first then it becomes difficult, especially away from home.

'But the spirit in the group has been terrific this week and we've had a good week's training where the players have been outstanding. We go there in great hope and looking to get a result.''


Rodgers expects a difficult game against a team who are experiencing a poor run of form:

'Mick has done a great job there,'

'I saw them play West Brom last week and they played well.

'We know that Saturday will be a difficult game. They have good players but we are only focusing on ourselves.

'The players have been brilliant since I've been here and the squad is strong and motivated to do well.

'It's always going to be a difficult game, but as a manager it's always about the next game and we are really looking forward to it.''
