Viktor Gyokeres | We didn't take our chances, but we have to bounce back

Viktor Gyokeres knows Swansea City paid for the lack of a clinical touch in front of goal against Huddersfield, but believes they have what it takes to bounce back at Coventry.

Steve Cooper’s side saw their unbeaten Championship record ended as they were beaten 2-1 by Huddersfield at the Liberty Stadium.

But the Swans do not have to wait long for a chance to make amends, with a trip to face newly-promoted Coventry at St Andrew’s lying in wait on Tuesday night.

Gyokeres made his full debut against the Terriers and – as he did against Millwall – showed nice touches and good movement as he linked with those around him.

Swansea had the chances to have won the game, and the Sweden international knows how important it is that they take advantage of spells of good attacking play.

"We didn't take our chances, even though we were attacking quite well,” he said.

“We made a few mistakes. They scored in the first half, but we came back. They then got the second goal at a time when it looked like we were going to get it instead. 

“We have to aim to bounce back on Tuesday, and I think we are more than capable of doing that with the players and the quality we have.

“Obviously it was a good feeling to get my first start, but that feeling would have been better if we had got the three points.

“I want to play, I’ve had no problem settling in here, and I want to help the team when I do. I need to make the most of my opportunities.”
