Morgan Gibbs-White | I feel the connection and understanding is growing

20th September
First team
Birmingham H Gibbs-White

Morgan Gibbs-White is confident Swansea City’s attacking patterns will soon click into gear despite the irritation of being held to a goalless draw by Birmingham City.

The Swans controlled possession for much of the game, and produced some fine passages of play where they moved the ball around crisply.

They created chances for Gibbs-White, Ben Cabango and Marc Guehi, while limiting their opponents, but could not find that key breakthrough in the final third.

On-loan Wolves midfielder Gibbs-White was frustrated he did not follow up his goal at Preston with another against the Blues, seeing himself denied by the keeper after cutting inside from a Matt Grimes pass.

But the 20-year-old is confident things will start to click as himself and fellow new arrivals Korey Smith and Jamal Lowe grow in understanding with their new team-mates.

“I can see our patterns of play starting to click into gear,” he said.

“We look comfortable on the ball, we are finding pockets of space for each other, playing the ball in behind.

“I feel like there's a really good connection coming in the team at the minute. The only way is upwards for now. Unfortunately, we just couldn't get the three points in this game.

“I should have scored to be fair. I thought it was a bit further away from the goal than I was. I tried to put it to the keeper's right, but it wasn't a good enough shot.

“But, when you play these sorts of teams, you know it's about battling and making sure you're right defensively.

“It's so frustrating we didn't get the one good chance where we could score a goal. If we get that goal, we probably end up scoring two or three.

“In that sense, we made it hard for ourselves, but Birmingham are good at what they do. It was just a frustrating game.”
