Tom Carroll bemoans wasteful Swansea City

Swansea midfielder Tom Carroll admits that his side was wasteful in front of goal during Sunday's defeat to Stoke in the Premier League.

Swansea City midfielder Tom Carroll has admitted that poor finishing cost his side during Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Stoke City.

The Swans wasted a number of chances in the first half at the Britannia Stadium as Stoke came from behind to claim the points in the Premier League encounter.

Carroll, who is currently on a season-long loan from Tottenham Hotspur, believes that Swansea could have earned a share of the spoils if they were more clinical in front of goal.

"We're all disappointed with the result. It was a bit scrappy at times but we created good chances early on and if we had taken them then it could have been a different game," he told the club's official website.

"It's never nice to concede so soon before half time, and we probably would have taken a point towards the end but it wasn't to be."

Swansea are back in action on Saturday when they host Leicester City in the Premier League.
