Tate Hits Out At Boo Boys

The Swansea City vice captain was not a happy man after the reaction of some to the 0-0 draw with Ipswich at the Liberty – a result that kept the Swans very much in line for an end of season play off spot.

Tate naturally shared the frustration after the Swans failed to break down an Ipswich side content with a point but it was the reaction from the stands that frustrated him more.

"Booing at the end is a bit ridiculous considering if you look at where Darlington are now

"We were Darlington seven years ago.  People need to realise that we've come a long way and not think we automatically deserve to be up here because we don't.

"It's no good moaning because I haven't seen many teams who have come here and thought we'll give these a good game by passing it and trying to win the game.

"I don't think anyone's come here, apart from Middlesbrough early in the season, and thought we'll go there and have a go.

"There was no need to boo at the end. It was not as if we were bad and got beat 3-0.

"It's disappointing we didn't win the game," he said.

"But they haven't had a chance to win it while we've had a couple and on the day a point is better than nothing.

"We knew after our result in midweek there needed to be a reaction and we knew after their result in the week they needed a reaction too.

"I think they got it as well as us, although I don't really think they came to win the game.

"Five points is a lot to make up in six games and a couple more wins will hopefully cement us in there.

"It's better to be five points in the lead than chasing five points.

"People need to realise that and get behind us."
