Joel Asoro hopes further first-team opportunities will follow his substitute appearance at Bristol City.

The Swansea City winger was introduced just after the hour mark at Ashton Gate but, despite some promising moments, he could not help the visitors get back into the game.

It was the Sweden Under-21 international's first outing for the Swans since the defeat to Ipswich at the Liberty Stadium in October.

He has since had game time within the under-23's set-up, and hopes he can help Graham Potter's men over the closing stages of the season.

“It was a difficult afternoon for us," he said.

“We were in the game for large spells and I hoped to come on and make an impact, but they got their second goal. That’s football.

“We tried to battle and get back into the game but we could not get anything.

“Of course, it was good to be back in with the first team this weekend but it is disappointing when you don’t win.

“It is frustrating because I want to help the team win. I will continue to work for another chance and help the side get more points."
