Steve Cooper | We're determined to put things right

Head coach Steve Cooper has underlined Swansea City's determination to put things right for the fans following Sunday’s 5-1 loss at West Brom.

The Swans suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at the Hawthorns – and their first on the road in 2019-20.

Having won five of their first six games to top the Championship table at the end of August, Cooper’s side now lie 11th having tasted victory just three times in their last 15 games across all competitions.

The Swans boss revealed he held a meeting with the players this morning to dissect yesterday’s performance and was pleased by their determination to turn the Swans’ fortunes around.

And Cooper insists his side owe the Jack Army a positive response when they welcome Blackburn to the Liberty on Wednesday.

“The mood in the camp is mixed. It was only yesterday that we lost 5-1, so nobody is going to have a spring in their step today – certainly not me,” he said.

“But at the same time, there’s only one way to get over it and that’s to get back out there and put it right. We are absolutely determined to do that. 

“We had a very productive and honest meeting this morning. The message was that we need to stand up and be counted.

“I see a lot of disappointment and frustration in the dressing room, but I see a lot of determination as well.

“We know we’ve only won three of our last 15 games and we know the best part of 2,000 fans travelled yesterday and many more were watching on TV.

“We know we owe them a performance and a result. We want the fans to be proud of the team, but to do that we have to do our bit and we’re so determined to do that.

“We’re proud to represent those people, so we need to put things right.”
