Swans des-Troyed

Andy Munro enjoys Blues’ win over Swansea City.

The local boy came good, which was one in the eye for some of the impatient keyboard warriors who were starting to get restive with the allegedly past it Troy Deeney. Yet Deeney has always been a quality and effective player for many years at top level and you don’t lose that quality overnight.

However, apart from Deeney, there were other high spots in this win against an in-form Swansea side, such as another peerless performance from Dion Sandersen and yet another disciplined performance from Jordan Graham, whilst Riley McGree was also excellent when he came on. Playing Scott Hogan slightly deeper with Tshiah Chong seemed to work, although the former still seems to be missing far more than he scores.

Overall, this was an excellent performance against a Swansea side who were on a more than decent run and whose confidence must have been high. We all know that it’s a nip and tuck league and anybody can beat anybody. Confidence is clearly a major factor so let’s hope that this is the start of a run.
