Tate was Swansea City captain on Tuesday as they fell to their heaviest defeat of the season at Blackpool but are given an immediate chance to bounce back when Ipswich arrive at the Liberty on Saturday.

The Swans remain in a very strong position for a play off berth and Tate has called on his team mates to give a big reaction after the defeat

He told the Western Mail “We can’t afford to have any hangover from this. The quicker we move on from it, the better for everyone

“We just have to forget that result and move on straight away. Everyone’s permitted to have a bad day, even Man Utd and Chelsea have them.

“It doesn’t happen to us very often, not since Reading last year. Hopefully that’s our one for this season.

“We just have to have a big reaction on Saturday. The quicker we forget this, the better.

We did look tired out there and it was probably one game too many,” he said.

“You can’t complain about that though because you have to deal with what you have got.

“With the amount of games and injuries this game was always coming. You try not to think about it beforehand, but it has happened and the only thing we can do is focus on Ipswich.

“You have to use this as a marker of a place we don’t want to be in again. It’s not great after a defeat like that, but, at this stage of the season, the fact it forces you to find a reaction can be a good thing.”
