Swansea: Fans stick the boot into Jake Bidwell after defeat to Brentford

Swansea defender Jake Bidwell had a night to forget against former club Brentford on Tuesday, scoring an own goal as the home side fell to a 0-3 defeat against the Bees at the Liberty Stadium, as per BBC.

The result maintains the Swans’ miserable home form, with only one point out of a possible 12 on their own patch, and saw them drop to seventh in the Championship. [via BBC]

Brentford were already a goal to the good when Bidwell diverted the ball beyond Swansea goalkeeper Freddie Woodman in the 36th minute to widen the gap, with Bryan Mbeumo rounding off a comprehensive victory for the visitors shortly before the hour mark. [via BBC]

The 26-year-old Swansea left-back has been a regular in the team this season, with his appearance in the team last night his 10th start in the Championship in 2019/20, but he has endured a difficult few weeks after being sent off against Bristol City last month and missing two subsequent matches through suspension prior to his unfortunate intervention last night.

These Swansea fans on Twitter did not hold back in their criticism of Bidwell’s performance against Brentford:
