Rodgers Still Upbeat Despite Poor Run

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers is still in upbeat mood despite his side falling down to 15th in the Premier League table.

Last Saturday's 4-2 defeat at Blackburn Rovers increased a winless run to four games, and while Rodgers denies the claims - goalkeeper Michel Vorm and some of the fans says tomorrow's match at home to Fulham is one they must win.

Rodgers says we are doing 'all right':

"If we had won last week we would have been eighth in the Premier League,"

"I don`t know how much higher we can go than that, and I am not going to get sucked into a whole load of negativity.

"This is a fantastic league where every game we play is a big occasion.

"It`s a very tough league, where your mistakes will get punished like they don`t lower down, but we are doing all right."

Rodgers has reminded his players of their qualities this week after the frustration of Blackburn, pointing out, for instance, that they did not concede from a set-piece against Manchester City, Chelsea or Stoke.

"Part of a manager`s job is to help and support his players," he added.

"Footballers are probably as vulnerable as anyone. They are seen as having the money and the big cars, but what they do means they are exposed to millions. As a manager you have to identify the human needs of people. You need to tell them what needs to be put right or reinforce what good players they are."
