Potter: We will keep playing our way

Graham Potter says Swansea City will keep faith with their desire to play attractive passing football, despite not getting their rewards in recent weeks.

The frustrations felt over defeats to Norwich, West Brom and Manchester City were added to as the Swans relinquished a lead in the dying minutes to lose 2-1 at Nottingham Forest.

Swansea again dominated the ball, and controlled long spells of the game at the City Ground only to be undone by set-pieces.

But when asked if he would be happy just to take a result with an ugly performance, Potter made clear his desire for Swansea to keep improving on the playing identity they are seeking to establish.

“No (I wouldn’t take just winning ugly), because I think you have to have your way of playing. Swansea won ugly a bit and ended up going out of the Premier League,” he said.

“So, it depends how you want to play.

“People talk to me about ‘the Swansea Way’ all the time, well what it is then? Is it winning ugly? Or are we going to try and play football how we want to play football?

“Then we have to accept when we are a bit short we have to improve in those areas.

“So for me we have to play how we want to play, and master that and be better than that.”
