Ash sets a new challenge
2nd February 2013
Defender Ashley Williams has challenged the Swans to pick themselves up and go again against QPR at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
A late Andy Carroll goal gave West Ham victory at Upton Park to end the Swans' run of seven league games without defeat.
"We were disappointed to lose the game,'' explained Williams. "We knew they were always going be strong from set plays. Whoever scored first would have won the game. They scored we didn't.
"We knew how they would play and we dealt with it for the most part. But you can't switch off, not even for a second, and we should have done better.
"I was picking him (Carroll) up and I should have been closer, but as a team when we analysed it on the laptop, it was a sloppy goal to give away.
"When we were in possession, we played some good stuff. It was a bit like Sunderland in midweek where we didn't score - and we can't go back to doing that.
"Perhaps when we get in and around the box, when we get chances, we need to shoot a bit more and finish teams off.
"Like I said, we are gutted that we lost, but it's certainly not all doom and gloom because we've done well in recent weeks.
"Now we've got to pick ourselves up and go again against QPR.''
