We haven’t been capable of attacking or defending set pieces for months and months and Kenny Jackett has finally said that they’ll be concentrating on getting them right in training this week.

We conceded 2 more goals from set pieces in the 3-1 defeat away at Gillingham on Saturday and the Swansea boss said:

”We have the size and power to do better at both ends when it comes to set pieces,”

”There has been a lot of talk about the game and the bottom line was that Gillingham were sharper than us.

”But all the goals we conceded were avoidable.

”Even (Martin) Jarvis’s came from our own throw-in and we conceded two from corners to a centre half.

”If we are not at our best we must be doing those things right so come the latter stages of the game we are still in it.”


Huddersfield visit the Liberty Stadium this Saturday as we hope to get back to winning ways after another suffering another break to our form.

Meanwhile, there’s good news for midfielder Owain Tudur-Jones after visiting the National Sports Centre as he still suffers from a long-term knee injury.

Jackett said: ”Owain is lacking a range of movement in his right knee,”

”Over the next few weeks we will work him in and out of training and he should be back for the middle of next month.”
