Swansea boss Rodgers pleased with Gerhard Tremmel performance in Stoke defeat

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers had no complaints after defeat to Stoke City.

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers had no complaints after defeat to Stoke City.

Swansea, who beat Stoke by the same scoreline in the reverse fixture in October, were dealt a blow before kick-off when keeper Michel Vorm was ruled out through illness.

The Dutchman has been one of the Swans' star performers this season, and it was certainly not an easy game for Gerhard Tremmel to make his Premier League debut in.

Brendan Rodgers said: "I thought Gerhard Tremmel dealt well with most of what he had to do. I thought some of our play was very good but we were disappointed with the two goals we conceded because we obviously know the threat that Stoke have.

"Their quality into the box is very good and they get people on the end of it. We're disappointed with the scoreline but performance-wise I thought there were a lot of good moments."
