Swans Drop To 4th After Defeat Against Blades

Swansea City missed the chance to go 2nd in the Championship this afternoon as a 1-0 defeat against an out-of-sorts Sheffield United side saw them drop to 4th in the table.

Despite the weather and the terrible road conditions, the match was given the go-ahead to play and it was because of the weather that only around 50 Swansea City fans were able to attend the game.

They left disappointed though as Brendan Rodgers' side again struggled to show any signs that we have enough quality up front to help us maintain our current strong position.

Welsh international striker Ched Evans got the vital winning goal just moments before the break, finding the net after a good ball through from Reid.

The visitors looked to make a strong start to the second half. Darren Pratley and Jermaine Easter replaced Mark Gower and Craig Beattie and they helped to give us a promising start after the break. Easter worked well with Dyer down the right before firing the ball across goal - forcing Bartley to make a clearance.

Scott Sinclair had our best chances to put the scores level again but he had a decent shot saved whilst the others flew off target.

Swansea City had half chances to take a share of the points but as we threw men forward in our attempts to get a goal, Sheffield United went closest late on to putting the game beyond doubt. It was Evans again with the chance following Ward's cross but De Vries was able to make a save.

Today's defeat means the Swans have won just 1 game in the last 5 and we have another tough test coming up on Boxing Day when we face League leaders QPR at Loftus Road.
