Captain Matt Grimes says Tuesday’s Carabao Cup match against Oxford United gives Swansea City a quick opportunity to return to winning ways after defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

Goals for Sammie Szmodics, Ben Brereton Diaz and Lewis Travis condemned the Swans to a 3-0 loss in their first home game of the season, but Russell Martin’s side do not have time to dwell on the result as they get set for the first-round tie at the Kassam Stadium.

“After any loss, you want to play again straight away so you can try and get a win under your belt,” said Grimes.

“Between both boxes we were okay. We were able to camp them in. It was just a game of moments; they took theirs and we didn’t take ours.

“We’re all feeling very disappointed with how the game ended up and I’m sure everyone else will be too.

“The process will stay exactly the same, we’ll review the game to see what worked and what we could have done better and take that into next week and hopefully bounce back on Tuesday.”
