Connor Roberts wants Swansea City to channel their frustrations into making sure they make the most of an upcoming run of games on home turf.

Graham Potter’s men were left disappointed after being denied a third-straight win by a debatable Preston penalty at Deepdale.

The Swans had been on course for three points when Roberts was adjudged to have handled a Jayden Stockley cross.

The Wales international and his team-mates were unhappy with the decision, which allowed Daniel Johnson to cancel out Courtney Baker-Richardson’s strike.

But Roberts wants Swansea to make sure the disappointment does not fester as they approach a run which seems them play four of their next five games in all competitions at the Liberty Stadium.

“It’s two points dropped. It’s tough to take, the boys are gutted but we have to start again and focus on next weekend," he said.

“There is a lot of anger in there but it cannot get the better of us and we have to focus and move on to the next games.

“I think the positives were there up until the final third. In recent games we have finished them off, we have scored a few goals in previous games and we should have done the same here. It cost us.”
