We'll bounce back, says Cork
19th April 2015
Jack Cork insists the Swans will bounce back from their disappointing 2-0 defeat at Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
Garry Monk's side, who were without the suspended Neil Taylor and injured Bafe Gomis, suffered their first loss in four games following goals either side of half-time from Leonardo Ulloa and Andy King.
After a slow start to proceedings, the Swans went behind when Ulloa hit home the opener inside 15 minutes, before the relegation-threatened Foxes sealed all three points when King tapped home late on.
But despite bemoaning Swansea's disappointing afternoon, Cork insisted the defeat will help spur them on to return to winning ways at Newcastle next weekend.
"It was a disappointing afternoon," said Cork. "We didn't start the game as we wanted to and conceded the goal, which made it hard for ourselves. The slow start probably cost us.
"We knew they would come out as they did with the crowd going. The last thing we wanted to do was concede, which was what happened.
"We tried to get back into the game, but nothing was really coming off. It was very frustrating.
"We've been really good in recent weeks, which makes it even more disappointing.
"But it will give us even more motivation for next week. Stoke are one point behind us now, so it will be a big game for us.
"We all know where we went wrong. We need to start better to make sure we bounce back."
