Williams frustrated at the manner in which Swansea concede goals

Swansea City head coach Luke Williams has expressed his frustration over the defensive errors that led to his team’s 2-1 defeat to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

The Swans conceded an early goal when Nathan Broadhead chipped the ball over Carl Rushworth, but they equalised through Jerry Yates’ eighth goal of the season.

However, they were caught off guard by a quick counter-attack from Ipswich, who restored their lead through Conor Chaplin before half-time.

Despite creating several chances in the second half, the Swans could not find another equaliser and suffered their second consecutive loss in the Championship after Tuesday’s home defeat against Leeds United.

Williams praised the work rate and intensity of his players, but lamented the lack of concentration and composure in key moments.

He said: “We conceded the goals in a silly way. We didn’t need to concede these goals, so that’s disappointing. We got back on level terms. We applied a lot of pressure, got an equaliser and then switched off from the free-kick and that’s where the frustration is.”

He added: “We gave everything to try to get back on terms again, I think the players threw everything forward and worked really hard, but we need to play less anxious and not switch off during periods of the game.”
