Swansea continued their brilliant home form as they won their fourth match in a row in one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Championship. It was an important win for the Swans manager as he beat his former club. As for Darren Ferguson, it was a disappointing performance to mark his 500th game in charge of the club. Jake Bidwell opened the scoring for the hosts in the 2nd minute before Joel Piroe doubled their lead in the 13th minute. Olivier Ntcham put the game to bed in first-half stoppage time.
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “It wasn’t quite perfect. We gave up a couple of chances in the first half which we were a bit annoyed about, but apart from that, we were outstanding really. The start of the game summed them up. The intensity, the attitude, their approach to the game, Ethan Laird’s intensity to run and get the ball, and Bidders’ (Bidwell) to make up the ground he did was incredible.”
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “It was a horrendous start and at that point, you are just trying to stay in the game. There were lapses in concentration and if you give the ball away in a terrible area teams will punish us.” he added. “As we’ve seen this season, teams don’t need many opportunities to punish you in this league with the quality they’ve got. If you press too much at times, they’ll pop around you. If you sit off them you are letting them have the ball.”
