Sinnott : Swansea Are Impressive

Port Vale manager Lee Sinnott admitted that his squad were not up to the mark following his side's 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

After a consummate performance that saw Roberto Martinez's side not needing to get out of third gear the league leaders cemented their position at the top of league one. Going into today's fixture Swansea were 3 points clear but have opened up a 5 point gap on 2nd placed Carlisle United who mustered a 1-0 win over Swansea's next opponents Crewe at Brunton Park.

Dutchman Ferrie Bodde sent the Liberty Stadium faithful into rapturous applause on 28 minutes as he picked up a Thomas Butler pass and on the perimeter of the Vale box; unleashed a rocket of a strike well past Tom Anyon in the Valiants goal.

Three minutes after the restart Darren Pratley put daylight between the two sides after Jason Scotland's initial shot was well blocked by the Port Vale defence to fire in his 4th goal of the season.

Sinnott has criticised his players for making incorrect decisions and has is adamant that his side can perform better despite the precarious position the Vale Park outfit are in.

It was not all doom and gloom for the visitors as Christopher Herd 's headed effort stirred Dorus De Vires into action to parry his shot out for a corner.

The former Farsley Celtic manager however was under no doubt his side could not compete with Swansea.

He Told The Sentinel

'We are not at this time at the level of Swansea City Football Club, but we will get there. Looking at the games against all the top teams that is probably been the most ineffective we have been."

I didn't think we made very good decisions at times today. There is no doubt we worked hard, but Swansea are a good team and, like the other top teams, they play with an impressive style.

We have about 20 games to go and two home games coming up - we know we can perform better,'



Sinnott will be looking ahead to the bottom of the table clash with Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday. His counterpart Roberto Martinez will be looking to extend Swansea City's lead at home to Crewe on Tuesday evening.
