Swans Lose At Priestfield

Swansea City failed to build on their last two consecutive victories after suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium today.

The hosts found themselves 2 goals up inside of 30 minutes and they then extended their lead with 11 minutes remaining.

Jackett made a surprising change as he dropped Butler in favour of Andy Robinson on the left side of midfield.

Leon Knight scored a consolation goal with an overhead kick 5 minutes from the end but it was too little too late as also had a goal dissallowed.

Subs Not Used: Pouton, Spiller, McDonald, Clohessy.

Booked: Easton.

Goals: Cox 14, Jarvis 30, Cox 79.

Swansea: Gueret, Amankwaah, Iriekpen, Lawrence, Austin (Williams 55), Britton (Butler 55), Tate, Pratley (Way 55), Robinson, Knight, Akinfenwa.
