'Of course I don't like league position'

Luke Williams says Swansea City will pull clear of Championship relegation danger if they continue to perform as they did in defeat to Plymouth Argyle.

Swansea missed a succession of big chances to get back into the game after going behind to Morgan Whittaker’s first-half goal, which ultimately proved decisive.

A third successive league defeat leaves Swansea, who last won on New Year’s Day, only five points clear of the relegation zone with fixtures against Hull City, Leeds United, Ipswich Town and Sunderland to come next.

Asked about Swansea’s increasingly worrying league position, Williams said: “I don’t like that, of course I don’t like that.

“We need to concentrate on trying to play really well.

“If we can create 19 chances every week [as Swansea did against Plymouth] and create openings in the six-yard box, we’d have to be a very unlucky team to suffer more.

“We have some tough fixtures but that’s the job. There’s no sulking or feeling sorry for myself.

“It’s just about trying to get training right, pick the right team, give the players the right motivation and give them the clarity they need.”
