Harry Darling runs with the ball against Luton Town

Harry Darling says Swansea City must learn their lessons quickly after the disappointment of defeat to Luton Town on Saturday. 

Allan Campbell’s strike from the edge of the box gave the Hatters the lead inside 15 minutes, and substitute Carlton Morris doubled the advantage with just around 20 minutes remaining.

Darling - who at the age of 23 was the eldest member of Swansea's three-man defence - admitted the Swans must do better after conceding from the second phase of a set-piece and a counter-attack.

“We conceded two poor goals,” he said.

“Overall we had a lot of the ball, we need to be more clinical up top, be able to change up our game and not be predictable.”

The Swans now have a full week until their next match – a trip to Middlesbrough – and the former MK Dons man believes that the time on the training pitch will be very valuable.

“We’ll analyse it and look to get back to winning ways,” he added.

“This game is done. We’re all disappointed with it but we’ll have a good week training and go again next week.

“All we can do is react, have a good week of training and try and put it right next Saturday.”
