Rodgers rallies Swans

SWANSEA manager Brendan Rodgers knows his side have to buck up their ideas if they are to halt their poor run of form.

The Welsh outfit have impressed fans and pundits this season with their free-flowing football but have come unstuck in recent matches.

Last night, Swansea lost 3-0 to relegation-threatened QPR at Loftus Road, which was their fourth successive Premier League defeat.

The Jacks have slipped from eighth to 14th as a result and, while still lying 10 points clear of the drop zone, Rodgers wants to ensure survival.

"I've always said we can't take our foot off the pedal until the very last game," he said. "We still have a lot of work to do. Overall, we never deserved anything from the game."

Hoops boss Mark Hughes was buoyed by his side's performance.

"We were excellent," the Welshman said. "You have to have a real understanding of what is required to stop them (Swansea) dominating. It was a fully deserved win."
