Norwich City boss Chris Hughton admits they were never up for their defeat at Swansea City.
Hughton said he came to the Liberty Stadium with a positive formation and mindset, but that his side did not deserve to get anything out of the game.
Away from home, they have picked up only two points from the last 24, and are struggling to break that poor run.
"We find it very difficult away from home just to get that right formula," Hughton said.
"In a game when you're up against a team that's as good a passing team as Swansea are, you can't give them the amount of ball we gave them.
"I thought we conceded three soft goals. They showed great quality with what they have and real pace to get those goals, but it's that balancing act at the moment.
"If we're not good enough on the ball we've got to make sure we're not conceding goals and at the moment, away from home, we're not doing either."
