INTERVIEW: Michael Rose Swansea Reaction

Defender reflects on the 1-1 draw...

21 October 2020

Michael Rose believes the Sky Blues can take the positives from their 1-1 draw with Swansea City last night.

Rose told how the start was key with Jordan Shipley’s strike coming in the 19th minute, as he points out that this is something City have been working on to ensure they are able to start on the front foot and make the most of having home advantage.

Andre Ayew did level up for Swansea before the break, yet that didn’t stop City attempting to create chances where although they were not able to find the winner, Rose sees the positives in not chasing the game and making themselves accountable for their own efforts.

Rose said: “They had a couple of spells and we defended really well and I think we’re a little disappointed but it’s a good performance. We’re here at this level and let’s go at it.

“We are the home team so you want to be dominating the game and I think we did that and created the better chances, but on another day we could have had a couple of more.

“We started really quick and got all over them for the first twenty minutes of the first half which allowed us to get a foothold into most of the game, which was a lot better because in previous weeks we were chasing the game which is really hard at this level because teams punish you.

“We try to score good goals; (On Shipley’s goal) it was a good cut back and a good finish and we were delighted with that start. Overall, we limited them to little chances which is a positive we can take.”

City will entertain Blackburn Rovers at St Andrews this weekend, as they look to build on the 1-1 draw against Swansea.
