'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rodgers Hails 'Terrific Performance'

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers said his side's performance was 'terrific' as they beat Bolton Wanderers 3-1 at home.

All the action happened throughout the second half. The Swans dominated possession in the first but chances were equally created at either end.

Gardner's sending off gave the Swans a boost, and straight after he was shown his second yellow, Joe Allen scored a superb individual goal before Scott Sinclair netted from the spot.

Danny Graham scored a own goal to give Bolton a life-line, but he scored in injury time to make it 3-1.

Rodgers was delighted to see the excellent home form continue:

'That was a terrific performance against an established side, but the most impressive thing today was how we managed the pressure,'

'We spoke in the week that in every game you will have moments, no matter how comfortable you are, where you have to manage the game.'

'Last week we failed to do it and drew 2-2, but this week when Danny scored the own-goal to put them to 2-1 you then saw the difference in the team.'

'We opened up the spaces, passed the ball and hid the ball from the opponents for five or 10 minutes and that's something we had talked about in the week, different ways to manage the pressure.'

'Our best way to do that is to keep the ball and take the sting out of the game. We scored three and we could have had more so it is very satisfying.'
