Bluebirds setback but are still third

Post  potatoblight on Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:38 pm

Paolo Sousa hailed his side's focus after Swansea beat local rivals Cardiff in a five goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans raced into an early two goal lead after a Nathan Dyer opener and Darren Pratley second.

But the Bluebirds responded with first-half strikes from Jay Bothroyd and Mark Hudson before Pratley hit the winner in the 61st minute.
Sousa said: "We played very well, were well organised and showed great energy from the start. We never lost focus and concentrated for the whole game.
"At half-time we knew we had to control the match to win and when we don't make mistakes we know we will win games.
"We try to start each match positively, making the right decisions but we have to keep our concentration as today we gave away two simple goals.
"We must work on that to be stronger as a team and that will be our aim as we believe in ourselves.
"I have seen what it means to be a supporter of this club."
Jones uphappy



Cardiff boss Dave Jones bemoaned his side's poor start, while he also believed the Bluebirds missed suspended strikers Michael Chopra and Peter Whittingham, as well as midfielder Stephen McPhail.
He said: "We never started well and gave two silly goals away and we have to be much better than that.
"We came out stronger in the second half but then gave away another bad goal.
"We never had any creativity about us and couldn't get any tempo going but full credit to Swansea who have the points and now we must wait until the return match to get this one out of our system.
"Any time you lose you let the fans down but we have to put up with it today and the season doesn't end with two derby matches so we have to fight back in our next game.
"After being back in the game we should have gone on to get something out of it but it wasn't to be.
"We missed three big players for us today and all those that came in did their best but it wasn't a good enough team performance."

They actually play quite attractive football and I hope that they get promoted - they would surprise a few teams in the prem!
