Match Highlights – Bristol City 1 Swansea City 0

Swansea City fell to a disappointing defeat at Ashton Gate, with Rob Dickie’s second-half goal proving decisive for the hosts.

Despite dominating possession and creating chances in the first half, the Swans couldn’t capitalize on their opportunities, as Jamie Paterson made his 100th appearance in a Swansea City shirt.

The second half saw more balanced play, with Przemysław Płacheta and Mark Sykes having notable chances for both teams. However, it was Bristol City’s Dickie who found the decisive touch from a corner routine.

Head coach Luke Williams made three changes from the midweek draw with Watford, bringing back Joe Allen, Kyle Naughton, and Liam Cullen to the starting line-up, while Jerry Yates, Harry Darling, and Jay Fulton moved to the bench.

Speaking after the game, Williams said “We didn’t do enough to win the game”, adding that “We’re very disappointed. We were able to control a lot of the game with the ball, but we didn’t create enough openings.

The Swans next game is the south Wales derby when Cardiff City visit the stadium on Saturday for the early kick-off.
