Cork: We must refocus and regroup
14th February 2016
Jack Cork insists the Swans will refocus and regroup as they look to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Southampton at the Liberty.
Francesco Guidolin tasted defeat as Swans head coach for the first time as Shane Long's second-half header proved the difference during a disappointing afternoon.
The loss left the Swans three points above the dropzone, with Norwich City and Newcastle United tied on 24 points after 26 games.
The Swans are without a game next weekend as the FA Cup takes centre stage, but trips to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are next on the agenda.
And Cork feels the squad are determined to bounce back and put distance between themselves and the bottom three teams.
"We are a bit down after that result - a draw would have been a fair result," said the former Saints midfielder.
"We had a good opportunity with two home games to get points on the board but we did not manage to get the results we wanted (against Crystal Palace and Southampton).
"We now have two tough games in London - we have to refocus and regroup and get something from those games.
"We have a good few days to get our heads down and prepare for those games against Tottenham and Arsenal.
"Two or three wins will get us out of it. It is going to be an exciting but nervy end to the season, so we need to get the wins on the board as soon as we can."
