And head coach Cooper admits he'll have to nail his team selections over the remaining weeks of the campaign, adding that he won't change his style with 40 games of the 2019/20 Championship campaign gone.

"We're going to have to be good with team selection to look after the legs. We haven't got some players available as well," he said.

Despite failing to win against Gary Rowett's men, Swansea remain just four points adrift of the top six after Cardiff were held to a 0-0 draw with Charlton.

And Cooper admits he has mixed feelings about his side's showing at The Den.

"I've got mixed feelings really. We had a lot of the ball in the first half but we weren't dangerous enough with it," he added.

"I'm just really disappointed with the goal we gave away. We knew that Millwall's biggest threat is counter attacks from winning the ball in the middle, and set plays. To make a basic error in the middle of the pitch and to allow an obvious counter attacking moment is disappointing.

"I thought we started the second half better. We were high up the pitch and threatening in and around the box. Some good play for the free-kick, Rhian's put it away really well, and I'm just disappointed we didn't capitalise on that. We ended up being deep again. It's a tough game, there's no doubt about that.

"It's a game we think we should have done better in."
