Rodgers: We Deserved To Beat Wolves

Rodgers: We Deserved To Beat Wolves

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers said his side 'committed suicide' after conceding 2 goals in 2 minutes to throw away a 2-0 lead at Wolves.

Danny Graham opened the scoring mid-way through the first half, before Joe Allen added a second before half time.

The Swans looked to be in full control but two quick goals from the home side gave them an unlikely point as in the end, Rodgers' side were fortunate to hold on for a share of the points.

'We were outstanding for 80 minutes,'

'We came here, we controlled the game and quietened the crowd.

'We committed suicide in the last 10 minutes by giving away two poor goals,'

'We conceded two goals.

'We got our first away point but it should have been three because our overall performance deserved that.'

'We play with possession and we try to penetrate.

'But maybe from the 75th minute onwards we went backwards with our passing too much and perhaps that allowed Wolves to get back into the game.

'And, as with every game, in the final 10 minutes the crowd got behind the team and that enabled them to get two goals.

'But I should give massive credit to my players because they were great for 80 minutes.'

From the 75th minute, Rodgers YOU conceded the defensive ground to Wolves by taking Britton off.I hope you read this because this was YOUR fault.

no we didn't because a game lasts 90+ minutes and we were only good for about 80 of them

All I've heard on all the media is how great Mick McCarthy's substitutions were. Not one said how poor Brendan Rodgers' substitutions were---by taking off Britton he conceded the game----very very poor decision.
