Boss Pleased With Swans Fightback

Paul Clement saw his side beat MK Dons 4-1 in the League Cup last night and was pleased with the way they fought back after falling behind just after the quarter hour mark to their lower league hosts.


Two goals from Leroy Fer and strikes from Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew saw the Swans ease themselves into the third round of a competition that we won back in 2013.

And Clement was pleased with the second half performance after admitting that the first was probably under the level that he wanted

“I am pleased with the second half. In the first half we made hard work of it – we should have been more clinical,” the Swans manager said.

“We had enough ball and created enough opportunities to be in a much healthier position at half-time.

“In the second half we combined better with each other and were more clinical. There was more teamwork rather than individual work and in the end it was a comfortable win.

“We got four goals and all from players in the forward positions,

“They are the furthest three players up the pitch so it’s good when they are getting goals.

“Leroy brings that threat. He is good in the air, strong at set-plays and has a powerful strike. He is a good option in that (attacking midfield) position and can also play on the right of left of midfield.

“We know Tammy can score. He got goals in pre-season and it was only going to be a matter of time before he got his first competitive goal. It’s different in the Premier League, but that’s good for his confidence. Hopefully that’s the first of many.

“Jordan gives so much to the team. he has bundles of energy and you always want a little bit better end product for him.

“He gets into such great positions but the final ball or final touch isn’t always there, but it was certainly there for his goal.”
