Swansea's Brendan Rodgers not blaming debutant keeper

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers says some disappointing defending was to blame for the goals conceded in their 2-0 defeat by Stoke .

Rodgers was forced to replace regular goalkeeper Michel Vorm, missing through illness, with debutant Gerhard Tremmel, but says that had no bearing on the result.

The Swans boss is pleased with some of the creative play his side displayed early in the game, but admits missing a good chance to take the lead "came back to punish them".
