Paulo Sousa was disappointed with his side’s performance yesterday at Reading and said it was two points dropped.

His team dominated large periods of the match and took the lead in the first half thanks to a great move to give Pratley the chance to score his 5th goal of the season.

However, we conceded a late free-kick just outside the penalty area 3 minutes into first half injury time and it was netted brilliantly by Sigurdsson.

The Swans struggled to keep up the momentum early in the second half but later they did push on for a winner but it never came.

Sousa said:

‘In this game I am not happy with a point away from home, bad decisions cost us the game. I consider it to be two points dropped.’

‘Once more we saw bad decisions against us but it is not something I want to talk about today.

‘Officials are an important part of the game and they need to help. They need to be at the same level as the teams.

‘It was a difficult game against a squad trying to impress a new manager. We played with great effort and personality.’
