Matt Grimes | Sloppy moments cost us dearly

Matt Grimes felt Swansea City were made to pay for sloppy moments as they went down 3-1 at home to Bristol City.

Despite taking a deserved lead through Andre Ayew’s penalty, the visitors left the Liberty with all three points following goals from Nakhi Wells, former Swans loanee Kasey Palmer and sub Antoine Semenyo.

The Swans look in total control by the time Ayew struck home his 10th goal of the season in the 55th minute – a penalty awarded following a handball by Palmer.

But the Robins levelled through Wells 11 minutes later, with Palmer scoring directly from a corner to give them the lead.

Sub Semenyo then charged down Woodman’s clearance and tapped home from close range to inflict the Swans’ first home league since October

“I think we had sloppy moments that they capitalised on,” said the Swans skipper.

“Other than that, I thought we played well with the ball, we limited them to very few chances and they're probably the worst goals we've conceded this season.

“We were very naive and poor, but it happens in football and we must go again.”
