Joel Piroe gives frank reaction as Swansea City let 4-1 lead slip to Reading

Published

on

Swansea travelled to Reading yesterday for a game that turned out to be an eight goal thriller. 

The goals got underway quickly with Reading taking the lead in the third minute through a penalty before Swansea equalised three minutes later.

Six minutes after that Swansea scored again through a penalty and ended up going into half time 3-1 up after two Joel Piroe goals gave them the advantage.

Swansea went 4-1 up in the 58th minute before a late resurgence from Reading saw the points shared with goals in the 61st, 71st and then 95th minute.

Despite initially being behind, Swansea will feel as though it’s two points dropped for them after being 4-1 up with half an hour to go in the game.

The result means Swansea are 13th in the league whilst Reading remain in 21st with the gap between themselves and the relegation zone now increased to seven points.

Scorer of Swansea’s second and third goals Joel Piroe took to Instagram to give his thoughts on the game as he posted pictures of himself with the caption: “Difficult to put this in words… We have to do better. Four more games to show we can do better!”

Swansea haven’t done badly this month winning three and drawing two of their five games but given the two draws have been their most recent results, it’s clear that Swansea are keen to get back to winning ways.

Both have yet to win the First Division/Premier League title

The Verdict: 

Throwing away that kind of lead to come away with only a point is a terribly disappointing result for Swansea and you can see why the team feels frustrated.

The 20-year-old has high standards which can be seen clearly through his own performances this year having scored a massive 20 league goals in 41 appearances.

Thankfully for Swansea, with nothing left to play for this season, the result hasn’t affected them too much but they will definitely be keen to put things right this weekend.

With four games left to go this season, Swansea will be hoping to get away from the draws and pick up some good wins to see the season out.
