Ashley Williams believes that Swansea weren't at their best on Sunday despite winning the South Wales derby
The Swansea City defender was a little disappointed that the watching TV masses did not get to see the Swans at their fluent best despite their domination of the game whichw as settled by Marvin Emnes second half strike.
Speaking to the Western Mail when looking back at the game, Ash said “I don’t think we played the Swansea way
“When you consider that a lot of people around the world would have watched it, that’s a little disappointing.
“I think we played well but we didn’t really see our true style as we might have done at home.
“We just did what was required for this one, we equipped ourselves well.
“And perhaps that’s the difference for us this year.
“I’d much rather win 1-0 and have to change our style slightly for a certain game or two than play brilliantly and listen to people tell us it’s like watching Arsenal and then go and lose 1-0.
“But we’ve done it a couple of times this year where we’ve done what’s been needed in different circumstances.
“We were different at Palace last week and we’ll probably be different at home for games.
“I think that’s credit to the manager and the players learning together as a unit.
“I think we can sustain it.
“We learned a lot of lessons from last year and you could see that against Cardiff.
“We went 1-0 up last year too but we were so much more in control and comfortable this time.”
