John Piroe helped Swansea end their four-run winless streak with one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. They beat Huddersfield 1-0 to win their first home game of the season. After failing to score in their last two home games, the hosts finally managed to put the ball in the back of the net. Swansea helped themselves to a fourth clean sheet in their last five games against an inform Huddersfield. The visitors remain three points behind the playoff places in seventh place.
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “Flynn was incredible, it’s really difficult to single people out but he does the dirty work really well which sometimes goes unsung. He enables people to do their roles brilliantly, he plays with no ego at all and knows exactly what his role in the team is and Kyle Naughton and the boys at the back appreciate him a lot – I know I would’ve if I’d had someone like Flynn playing in front of me.”
Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “I feel we competed better in the second half than we did in the first. They had more clear chances, but they came from our mistakes. We didn’t find a solution to the way they pressed and we lost organization in defense for the goal they scored. Until that moment we were doing really well. We needed to manage our attack better the second half, we competed better and won more second balls.”
