Nathan Dyer believes that Swansea City need to "go back to basics" to return to winning ways.

Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer has insisted that his side will bounce back from their South Wales derby defeat to Cardiff City in the Premier League.

Steven Caulker's headed goal in the second half proved to be the difference between the two teams at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.

"Everyone has gelled now - it is not a case of new players needing to settle in," Sky Sports News quotes the 25-year-old as saying. "I just feel that we need to go back to basics. We have to work hard as a team, from the front to the back, and we have to be together.

"The possession has changed a little bit. Everyone is used to us playing short and sharp passes but I think that has changed with the manager wanting us to penetrate more through the defence and play more through balls.

"That aspect has changed a little bit, although we still know how to keep the ball. Pressing-wise I feel we need to do that higher up the pitch, but everyone has to do it otherwise it doesn't work."

Swansea are currently 13th in the league table with 11 points from 10 matches.
