Josh Tymon | We did not make the most of our opportunities

Josh Tymon felt Swansea City paid for missed chances in falling to a 1-0 defeat against Queens Park Rangers on Easter Monday.

While the visitors got off to the better start with Ilias Chair testing Carl Rushworth early on, the Swans grew into the game and Tymon stung the gloves of Asmir Begovic, with Ronald also forcing a good stop from the R’s keeper.

Matt Grimes and Aimar Govea both hit the woodwork, while Ronald, Ollie Cooper and Jerry Yates also saw efforts denied.

But the visitors took the points when Steve Cook volleyed in from a corner with 19 minutes remaining.

And Tymon could not hide his disappointment at how the home side had not been accurate enough and come out on the wrong side of key moments.

“It’s frustrating,” said Tymon.

“We started very sloppy compared to the standards we’ve set in the past few weeks, which didn’t set up us right.

“But, once we calmed down and after 15 or 20 minutes, we started to create a lot of chances and we should really have scored one or two of them.

“We came out in the second half, started really well and then conceded from a set-piece; which we need to address, because at the moment that’s the way teams are getting goals against us.

“To win a football match, you need to take your chances. 

“I’d be worried if we weren’t creating them, but we are creating them from wide areas, we just need to tuck a few of them away because that gives us a better chance of getting results and points."
