League leaders Swansea suffered a shock defeat by fifth placed UWE in the penultimate week of the season.

Captain Peter Ockwell was critical of his side’s performance following the 2-0 home defeat.

Captain Peter Ockwell said: “We could have given a lot more as we have played a lot better during the season and that was our worst performance of the year.

“We didn’t play the way we have practised in training, the result was very disappointing.”

UWE’s Vlad Djukic took an early lead when he scored just 15 minutes in leaving Swansea on the back foot for the rest of the game.

UWE took an early opportunity to increase their lead in the second half after a goal by Josh Thomson was scored after the ball ricocheted off the crossbar.

Through Steve Davey, Swansea attempted to level the score but they were unable to faze the UWE defence.

Swansea could not break the visitors down and UWE secured a much needed three points in their hunt for survival.

Ockwell remained hopeful that the team could achieve promotion.

He said: “Yes it was a dent but we now have one more chance of winning the league against Hartpury so it is still down to us to make sure we get promoted and win the league.”
