Swansea City FC news: Alan Curtis says club fortunate to only lose 1-0 at Southampton

18 Sep

Alan Curtis admitted he couldn’t see any way back for Swansea in the 1-0 defeat to Southampton.


Charlie Austin’s goal was the difference, but the club’s first team coach said it could have been more.

“[1-0] seems close, but I suppose the reality is that we were probably fortunate to get away with just the one goal,” he told talkSPORT after the game. “We threatened at times but I think overall Southampton deserved to win,” he added.

The result comes a week after the side drew 2-2 with Chelsea where the Swans briefly led after falling 1-0 behind.

“We’re disappointed because we fought back terrifically well against Chelsea last week when we looked to be out of the game but I didn’t really feel like we were going to get back into it [against Southampton].”

Swansea have not won since beating Burnley on the opening day of the season and although Curtis conceded there was concern about results among the Swansea staff,  he can see a way out.

“We’ve had a few tough games. Chelsea certainly was a big ask and Southampton also, to be fair. They’ve probably not started as well as they’d have like but [St Mary’s] is always a tough game to come.

“I think we’ve always been in the game, we’ve not been battered in terms of goals. We’re just struggling to find rhythm and once we get that and ownership of the ball back, which we’ve always done, then hopefully we can get the results back.”
