Sam Surridge | Results will come if we can replicate Fulham display
Sam Surridge felt Swansea City’s defeat to Fulham was a bitter pill to swallow, but believes similar displays will yield greater reward moving forward.
The Swans produced a fine display against the Cottagers, but a failure to take their chances saw them fall to a 2-1 defeat.
With head coach Cooper and his players admitting they had not been at their best in recent home games, there was no doubting the performance was a step in the right direction against a Fulham side on a fine run of form.
And while the frustration of defeat lingers, Surridge - who made his first home league start – feels results will come more often than not if such a display can be repeated consistently.
“It’s a hard one for us to take. In the second half, we probably could have nicked an equaliser at the end,” said the striker.
“Fulham are a good team that are going to be pushing at the top end of the table. But we had chances. On another day, we take them.
“If we’re going to do something good this year, we’ve got to put those chances away and kick on.
“There are positives to take from the night so we need to dust ourselves down because that was the first time in a while that we’ve created so many chances at home.
“It was also one of our better performances at home in a while. We need to turn those good performances into wins but they’ll come, we’re sure.
“There are positive signs but it’s disappointing that we didn’t win.
“We know if we’d played like that in our last few home games then we would have been winning easily.
“It’s tough to take because we worked hard in the second half. They had possession in the first half, but we created a lot of chances.”
