Progress pleases Laudrup
Michael Laudrup says he is pleased with the progress his Swansea squad are making as they prepare for the new season.
The Swans continued their preparations for the big kick off as they beat Ventura County Fusion 1-0 at Oxnard College in California thanks to a goal from Luke Moore. Laudrup took the opportunity to give every member of his squad, barring Nathan Dyer who has tonsillitis, a run out and fielded completely different sides in each half. The Dane was happy with many aspects of his side's play and is pleased with the way things are progressing. "I was happy with the performance - the result was not the most important thing for me," Laudrup told the club's website. "Everybody played 45 minutes, and together with the game against Colorado Rapids I know a little more about the squad. "It was difficult because they locked everything down and we played in short spaces. But we created seven or eight chances, which was good. "We could have had more goals. We had a goal penalty converted to a corner, and a goal disallowed when he (Wayne Routledge) was ten metres onside. "But Luke took his goal very well. Luke is not a specialist wide player, but we know his qualities and what he can bring. He can come inside and take up the forward role, which he did for the goal. So I'm pleased with the progression we are making as a squad."
