Sousa wants more goals

Published Add your comment

Swansea manager Paulo Sousa admits his side need to find a way to score more goals after they failed to make their superiority pay in a 0-0 draw with Ipswich at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans have now failed to score in their last three home games and, with no wins in their last five, they are nervously peering over their shoulders as they seek to hold on to a Coca-Cola Championship play-off spot.

Sousa said: ``We now have 22 clean sheets this season to equal the club record but we must find more ways of scoring goals and we have the possibility of doing that during training this week."

The Championship's lowest scorers, with just 33 from 40 matches, enjoyed most of the possession but rarely troubled the visitors' goal.

And while Sousa was pleased to secure a point, he acknowledged that they need to start taking their chances ahead of next Saturday's trip to bitter rivals Cardiff.

He added: ``Ipswich were well organised and our minds were not fresh so at the end of the game I am happy with a point. I am very glad that we are now through a difficult month and can refresh ourselves before next Saturday's derby at Cardiff.

``We need to be ready for them but we have shown we are a good side as we have been in the play-off positions for a long time.

``We want to create a strong foundation here and improve as a club and I'm very confident and happy that we will do just that.''
