Ashley Williams has insisted he is as 'frustrated as anyone' at Swansea City's current plight following the 'embarrassing' defeat at West Ham United on Saturday.

Kevin Nolan's first-half double at Upton Park condemned Swansea to a 2-0 defeat and left Michael Laudrup's side just two points above the relegation zone, despite sitting in 12th place.

Swansea have won just once in their last 10 Premier League games and Sky Sports understands the board are split regarding Laudrup's future as manager.

Captain Williams was left despondent by the defeat at West Ham, particularly on the back of an FA Cup win at Birmingham and league success at home to Fulham.

"It's not nice," said Williams. "I don't enjoy it. It hurts, it's embarrassing.

"We have lost too many games and conceded too many goals. It does my head in and I am as frustrated as anyone involved with Swansea because we're all responsible.

"It's hard for us to look at the league table, it's not nice viewing for us. It's the first time I've been involved in that since I have been at Swansea and it's not a nice position to be in.

"We made it hard work. I don't know, it was just disappointing. We wanted to build on momentum, we spoke about that before the game.

"We'd had two good wins and we wanted to at least not lose the game, but we conceded two rubbish goals so we didn't give ourselves a chance."

Swansea face arch rivals Cardiff in their next game, and tackle Everton in the FA Cup and Napoli in the Europa League later this month.
