Swansea City midfielder Jack Cork has told the club's official website that the Swans were not clinical enough during their 2-0 defeat to Hull City.

Second half strikes from Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez proved to be the difference at the Liberty stadium yesterday, as the Tigers continue to impress despite their adverse circumstances.

With only 13 senior players at their disposal and still without a permanent man in charge after the departure of Steve Bruce, Hull continue to be a turn-up for the books, registering back-to-back wins from their opening two games, becoming only the second promoted side in Premier League history to do so after Bolton in 2001.

The Swans dominated much of the ball during the game and had more attempts on goal, but they were frustrated by Mike Phelan's resilient Tigers, and they were more clinical in front of goal, as Jack Cork emphasised.

"We had a lot of the ball but they played a defensive shape and made it tough for us, we struggled to break them down and they made it difficult for us in the final third." He said.

“We created some good chances in the first half and needed to take them. We had a lot of the ball but could not finish it in the final third and they made the most of their chances on the counter.

“They held a good shape in defence and hit us though a set-piece and on the counter-attack."

Swansea have so far take three points from their start to the season, after they overcame Liverpool-conquering Burnley on the opening day.

The Swans were without record breaking signing Borja Baston for their clash with Hull who was ruled out due to an injury sustained shortly after he arrived from Atletico Madrid during the week.

Baston cost the Swans £15 million, and is set to team up with former Sevilla strike Fernando Llorente, who joined the club this summer on a free transfer.
