Well I suppose the Swans had to lose sometime, but doing so against Kenny Jackett’s Millwall at home just makes it all the more disappointing. With the 2-1 defeat also goes equalling the previous best of 19 league matches unbeaten, which was set in the 1970/71 season.
The game itself was pretty much the same old story of our recent home games – we created plenty of chances but lacked the quality finish in the final 3rd to kill teams off. Darren Prately in particular was guilty of misses 2 good chances from no more than 8 yards out. Defensively, we weren’t up to the usual high standard tonight – the absence of Garry Monk only served to highlight what an important cog he is in the Swansea wheel. I also think this is the last season we’ll see Kristian O’Leary in a Swans shirt, as on the evidence of recent games he simply isn’t up to the required standard any longer (which is a shame as he’s been such a loyal servant to the club).
Oh well, it’s a disappointing start to the weekend, but we’re still 11 points clear at the top of league one and who know’s that lead might not be cut tomorrow after all – fingers crossed it won’t be anyway.
