Swansea City face a battle to stay in the play-offs after they suffered a fourth consecutive defeat when they were beaten by Preston this afternoon.
The visitors took all three points at the Liberty Stadium thanks to a Matt Grimes own goal in stoppage time. Whilst it was a cruel way to lose, the reality is that Steve Cooper’s side could have few complaints.
Once again, they were toothless in the final third, and they barely tested the North End keeper all afternoon.
The result leaves the Welsh side, who had been targeting automatic promotion last month, just four points above seventh place with seven games to play.
Do Cardiff City and Swansea City have these 10 things in common?
Worryingly, Swansea don’t have any momentum going into the run-in, and it’s fair to say the fans are not at all happy with Cooper, with many feeling his negative style of play is costly.
Here we look at some of the comments about the boss on Twitter…

This is what we all wanted. Cooper to show a little bit of creativity in selection and shape. Nothing came of it. Unfortunately this is the best we can do at the moment.
