Draw was a fair result, says Llewellyn
28th October 2014
Chris Llewellyn admitted Tuesday's 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers was a fair result, despite seeing the Under-21s let a two-goal lead slip in West London.
The Swans went ahead at Harlington thanks to Kenji Gorre's close-range finish - his fifth goal of the season.
Josh Sheehan grabbed a second on the stroke of half-time and it looked as if the visitors would be taking all three points back down the M4.
However, the home side pulled one back just moments into the second half through Max Ehmer's header, and Frankie Sutherland completed the turnaround when he netted from the penalty spot with 15 minutes to play.
"To be leading 2-0 and end up drawing is obviously frustrating," said Llewellyn. "To be honest, it could have been three or four behind half time because we were playing well and creating numerous chances.
"We were excellent in the first half but once again we haven't followed it up for the 90 minutes.
"When they scored the first goal from a set piece the boys responded really well and we had a good spell.
"But in the end it was a fair result because when they got the equaliser we became a bit ragged and frustrated."
For the third time in four matches, the Under-21s ended the game with 10 men following Kurtis March's dismissal in added time.
The midfielder was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Jordan Gibbons, and Llewellyn admits that his players need to learn to curb their emotions.
"I think it has come purely out of frustration," he said. "We are playing really well for long spells and then we let it slip.
"That then feeds through to the players and it is all part of a learning curve - they have to try and manage their emotions."
