Leeds United manager Simon Grayson admitted that his side deserved to lose 3-0 at Swansea City.

Leeds were outplayed by an impressive Swansea side as Scott Sinclair netted a brace before Luke Moore added a third to round off an excellent victory.

Grayson said:

‘I thought we were poor from start to finish. Swansea were very good, they passed the ball around, closed us down well and we didn’t impose our own game. We were lacklustre and we gave away possession very cheaply.

‘But, in saying that, I thought we should create some half-decent chances.

‘At 1-0, we hit the bar and then had a blatant penalty turned down. It wasn’t given and it was a massive turning point in the game.

‘No matter how poorly we played if we scored the penalty, at 1-1 then we are right back in the game.

‘It could have been the spark and lifeline we needed and how the officials missed it I do not know.

‘But, overall we probably got what we deserved out of the game and that was a defeat.

‘Swansea are a good team and we knew it would be tough. Things didn’t go for us but we have always reacted well from defeats this season.’
