Swansea centre-back Marc Guehi has told the club’s website that the squad are in a ‘tough situation’ after a run of consistent poor results in recent weeks.
The Swans fell to a fourth straight defeat after their latest 1-0 loss at home to Preston on Monday. The result meant they had lost their last three games by the score line 1-0.
The latest defeat against Preston comes just a few days since a surprising late defeat against struggling Birmingham City.
Manager Steve Cooper will be worried that his side have hit a poor run of form at the crunch time of the season. His side have failed to score in their last three games and still face some tough tests in Reading and Watford.
Swansea were hot on the tails of Watford just a few weeks ago battling it out for an automatic promotion spot. However, after poor results the side have now dropped to fourth place and are now just four points above Bournemouth in seventh.
20-year-old Guehi has been a regular feature in the Swansea side since joining on loan from Chelsea last summer. However, the England U21 centre-back has indicated his worries after recent results.

Talking to the club’s website, the defender said: “It’s difficult for everyone to take at the moment,” said the centre-back. “We’re in a tough situation, but the good thing, and the beauty about football, is that there’s always another game.
“There’s an opportunity coming up on Saturday against Millwall, so we’ll just refresh and get our minds ready for that game.
“It’s a good test of character for us all – as staff and players and for the club. Trying to aspire to where we want to get to, these are the moments that could define us.
“Let’s hope we rally together, keep going in tough circumstances and make sure we bounce back, because that’s the most important thing.”
The Welsh side face an inform Millwall side in their next game. The Lions have won their last three games in the league keeping a clean sheet in their last two.
Swansea have struggled in recent weeks and a run of four straight defeats at a crunch time in the season couldn’t be worse timing.
Manager Cooper will be worried with his side’s form and especially the lack of goals in recent weeks. Just one goal in the last four games in the league indicates a big problem for the Swans.
The next few weeks will prove crucial towards their promotion push with the likes of Bournemouth now breathing down their necks.
