Neil Taylor disappointed with pre-season loss

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor reveals that he and his teammates were frustrated with their pre-season loss to Minnesota United.

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor has admitted that his side were disappointed with their pre-season defeat to Minnesota United in their pre-season tour of the US.

Goals from Justin Davies and Greg Jordan condemned Garry Monk's side to defeat, meaning they will leave the country without a win from their two matches on tour.

However, Taylor believes that he and his teammates worked on a lot of things that will stand them in good stead for their Premier League campaign.

He told the club's official website: "The game itself was poor from us - it wasn't good enough. However, it's early in pre-season for us and it's a transition period for us and the club.

"We've worked very hard in the last two weeks and we've got out of the week what we wanted to. We've tried new things tactically, and we've made progress on that.

"We will now travel back, play the five domestic friendly games and hit the ground running when we return home. Overall, it was a good trip for the club."

Swansea face Manchester United in their season opener on August 16.
