Challenging but enjoyable- Potter's verdict on his first season

2-2 Blackburn draw in Championship finale


Swansea City Manager Graham Potter says his first season in charge has been challenging but enjoyable.

Their last Championship away match against Blackburn ended in a 2 - all draw.

Graham Potter’s side had to come from behind at Ewood Park as goals from Courtney Baker-Richardson and Oli McBurnie gave the visitors a 2-1 lead, only for Bradley Dack to equalise in the second half.

The result saw the Swans end the season in tenth place – nine points off the Championship play-off positions.

Potter said:

"In the end it's a good point for us because we had to battle in the second half. I thought we had some good play in the first half then got control of the game, got into the lead and had a really good chance for 3-1 which would have made the second half easier.

"But credit to Blackburn, they came back into it and that gave them a lift. In the end it's a point away from home and that's not a bad result."

Potter says its been a season for the young players:

"Its been enjoyable and its been challenging. We've had a lot to deal with but we have made steps. There have been a lot of young players taking their first steps in professional football - I think we're the third or second youngest in terms of game time for Under 23s. There's a foundation there, the start of how we want to play football. I think that's improved as time has gone on."
