Anthony Wright | We let our intensity and patience slip

Coach Anthony Wright felt Swansea City Under-21s had let a point slip through their fingers after they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Burnley.

Tom Tweedy grabbed a late winner for the Clarets to condemn the young Swans to a league defeat in SA1 for the first time since November 2022.

The Clarets had taken the lead in the first half through Tommy McDermott’s penalty, before Kyrell Wilson responded with a smart finish for the home side after the break. 

"We dominated in the first half, and it was a comfortable 45 minutes for us against a team who have come here to frustrate," said Wright.

"They were disciplined off the ball with the way they set up.

"We needed to be a bit more clinical to put the ball into the net as we had a lot of chances. In the second half, we lost patience and I don't think we played forward enough.

"We've had three games in seven days, and I think as the game went on it started to take its toll on a couple of players.

"We're disappointed that we've lost, one of our objectives is to make the play-offs and we now have to see how the other teams get on.

"We let this one get away from us, but we have to dust ourselves down and go again against Sheffield Wednesday next week."
