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

Yeovil-Swansea Match Reaction

Swansea slumped to their 4th league defeat in 5 games after losing 1-0 at Yeovil yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday's defeat extended our losing run at Yeovil to 4 consecutive games and we are still yet to score a single goal at Huish Park.

It was Nugent's third game in charge as temporary manager while new boss Roberto Martinez looked on from the sidelines.

Nugent said: 'I shall be speaking with Roberto on Monday about the future but I don't see a problem. I have a contract with Swansea and I'm very happy.

'The players have given me everything in the three matches I have been in charge and I thought we should have got something out of the game.

'We had what I consider was a stick-on penalty which wasn't given and the goal we conceded was very disappointing. There were three lads at the back and one of them didn't pick up the lad who scored.'


Yeovil's win yesterday sees them move up into the automatic promotion places and manager Russell Slade said: 'They were three vital points for us. All the ingredients were there for a tough battle between two sides who were obviously trying to get out of this league.

'I thought we settled the better and moved the ball around with a little more ease than Swansea.

'There were not many clear chances but we had good possession and got the ball into the box quite a lot.

'However, it's not easy when you're up against defenders who are six foot seven and six foot two and I thought Swansea defended well in their own box.

'Towards the end we could have seen a couple of red cards instead of yellow when we had two men brought down when they were clean through. The challenges were cynical but they got away with it.'
