Swansea   0 - 0   Bristol City


Swansea v Bristol City

Swansea 0-0 Bristol City

Swansea City were denied victory in this goal-less draw at Liberty Stadium to leave them on one Championship win in seven starts under boss Paulo Sousa.

The Swans regularly put Bristol City under pressure, but the Robins' solid start to the campaign continued.

Craig Beattie and Jordi Lopez spurned good second-half chances for the hosts, who saw Ferrie Bodde return after a 10-month injury absence.

Robins goalkeeper Adriano Basso stood firm under Swansea's onslaught.


Swansea boss Paulo Sousa:
"It was a familiar story with chances created but no goals and our best opportunities came late in the game.

"They had a couple of opportunities late on but we had far more of the play all over the field.

"I hope this is a start for us with players coming back from injury and suspension but we need to know the way to play and that is important.

"Our midfield is in transition but they are crucial to the way we play as we try to present quality on the field.

"The spirit was there tonight, which was an improvement on Saturday, but goals are important, although it is necessary first to create and we are doing that so it will bring us confidence."

Bristol City boss Gary Johnson:

"I am very proud of my players because they all worked their socks off.

"I am very happy with a point and we could have snatched the victory right at the end.

"It is a squad game now and we have had to make full use of all our players as we have had several going down with a virus.

"Nicky Maynard had to be taken out of the starting line-up after reporting in unwell this [Tuesday] morning."
