Fulham - Davies Praises Swansea!

Fulham - Davies Praises Swansea!

Returning to his native Wales, the current Welsh vice-captain knew exactly how well Swansea can play.

Simon Davies, who is good friends with Mark Gower the Swansea winger who had two great chances to score, had no hesitation in praising the opposition in an interview given after the match when he remarked,

"It was a tough game for us but we knew that before, because we knew how much possession Swansea get at the Liberty."

"We gave them the respect they deserved all week - watching the videos and seeing the way they play we knew how difficult it would be."

"I`ve seen them on TV a few times and I know a lot of people who see them regularly, so I knew how tough it would be."

"The way they play it`s almost like Barcelona, utilising the wide players very wide when we play with a narrow four to try and keep it tight."

"So that would always make it difficult for us and we were hoping to perhaps nick something on the break."

"It`s such a big pitch. It`s so difficult to get on the ball and we have to be happy to take the draw."

"Now we can look forward to trying to get the win in the replay."

Barcelona? Steady on Simon!
