Connor: Swans cannot dwell on frustration

Connor Roberts admits there was a great deal of frustration in the Swansea dressing room after defeat at Norwich, but knows they have to move on with two more big games ahead in the coming days.

The Swans gave an excellent account of themselves at Carrow Road, but fell to a 1-0 loss thanks to Emi Buendia's ferocious second-half strike.

Graham Potter's side had the better of the opening half and gave as good as they got throughout against a team leading the Championship and on a strong run of form.

Potter himself felt the display was one the squad could be proud of, and Roberts felt it was a result that got away.

But he knows there is no time to dwell on matters, with a trip to West Brom coming up on Wednesday, before the FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City at the Liberty.

"We played some good stuff but we just lacked that little bit of cutting edge," said the Wales international.

"Obviously they are a very good team, and we can be proud of the performance, but the result has gone now and we have to move on from it and put it behind us quickly.

"We are disappointed, it was a special moment from their lad as they did not have many clear-cut shots or chances.

"There is frustration there, but we have a big week and two tough games coming up.

"We have to recover well and go again."
