We have the quality to bounce back, says Sigurdsson
19th October 2014
Gylfi Sigurdsson is confident the Swans have the quality to return to winning ways following their 2-1 defeat at Stoke City.
The Swans had led 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium after Wilfried Bony slotted home from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Ryan Shawcross.
But referee Michael Oliver again pointed to the spot after Victor Moses went down in the box while under pressure from Angel Rangel. Charlie Adam levelled, and Stoke were celebrating all three points after sub Jonathan Walters headed home with 13 minutes to go.
Defeat means the Swans are on a run of two draws and three losses, but Sigurdsson believes the squad is capable of turning its fortunes around.
"We have the quality within the team to bounce back," said the Icelandic midfielder. "As soon as we get the next win I'm sure we can go on a good run like we had at the start of the season."
He added: "We knew it was going to be difficult at Stoke with the way they put crosses into the box.
"But we started very well and we were deservedly ahead. We were looking good and we had created a few good chances.
"Their penalty decision was a real setback as we would have gone into the break ahead.
"And their winner was a big blow because I felt we deserved to get at least a point from the game, but instead we head home with nothing."
