Big improvement needed for final push, says Cork
25th April 2016
Jack Cork insists the Swans need to make a big improvement in the final three games following a 4-0 defeat at Leicester City.
It proved a miserable afternoon in front of the Sky cameras at the King Power Stadium as the Foxes moved one step closer to the Barclays Premier League title following a hugely convincing victory.
Goals from Riyad Mahrez, Leonardo Ulloa - who netted a brace - and a late effort from substitute Marc Albrighton sent the Swans to their biggest loss of the campaign.
It followed a 3-0 setback at Newcastle the previous week, and Cork admits the Swans must make significant improvements if they are to finish their season in positive fashion.
Francesco Guidolin's side now face Liverpool on Sunday before visiting West Ham, while a home clash with Manchester City concludes the campaign.
"We knew it was going to be a tough game at Leicester as they are so close to the title," said the midfielder.
"But we made it tough for ourselves. We conceded some sloppy goals, which you can't afford to give in this league.
"The crowd are very vocal and that gives the team extra energy. They press very well in the middle areas, which makes it very hard to be on the ball.
"We weren't good enough on the counter attack either, so we have no one to blame but ourselves.
"We have conceded seven goals in the last two games and scored none.
"We need to make a big improvement in the final three games because we want to finish the season strongly."
