BEN Davies admitted Swansea City were frustrated after being beaten by a last-gasp goal against Southampton on Saturday.

Swansea's final home game of the season looked to be heading for a goalless draw until the Saints scored in injury time.

Ashley Williams sent the ball soaring into the air, and Rickie Lambert got above Michel Vorm to head home.

"We are disappointed with the final result, we probably would have taken 0-0 after a gritty performance, but it is really disappointing to concede like that at the end," said the left-back.

"It's not as if we can stand here and say we were beaten by a moment of brilliance.

"It was a sloppy goal to concede and very preventable.

"It was probably a typical end-of-season game. I don't think there was a lack of effort, both teams played well and created chances.

"We probably had the better chances but we couldn't take them.

"It is frustrating when a team keeps the ball and restricts you from getting it down as much as you would like.

"But we worked really hard and I thought they didn't really create that many clear-cut chances."

    N'Gog, Vazquez,Lamah, Canas will be no great loss neither will Tiendalli, Lita or Emnes, Taylor's going has been on the cards for a while, we'd struggle to keep Bony no matter who the manager was, Michu will depend on his fitness that ankle is worrying, JDG has indicated he wants to stay but I think he'll expect a permanent contract and you can't blame him. We'll just have to wait and see what happens and pray HJ and Co don't go shopping the the championship league hopefully after chucking away a million on N'Gog they'll have learned a lesson.

    Trncjack, you are right, many of ML signings could be on their bikes in the summer: Bony, Michu, DeGuzman, Chico, Pozuelo, Vasquez, Lamah, Canas, Amat. N'Gog and Taylor will be on their bikes too. Williams as well, if some of the big clubs buys him a bike. It's going to be a very interesting summer.

    We have never ever been so out played possession wise as that ,(only 38 %) for a long time, That is not a swansea way of playing, Some dead wood to go in the summer, And sign a new centre back,,, Amat is not up to it, and chico is good cover on the bench ,if he wants to stay , but i think a lot of ML signings will be on their bikes in the summer,

    They left because we were pretty awful and were outplayed from first to last - 38% possession accurately reflected that. Southampton were far better and deserved to win. How can anyone not see that?
