Davies: We Played Against A First Class Team

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies shares his views on today's 1-1 draw at the City Ground.

Jason Scotland increased his goal tally to 20 for the season, netting from close range following some good work from Spanish duo Jordi Gomez and Guillem Bauza.

We were unable to hold on for all 3 points though, as substitute McGugan equalised 15 minutes later, heading home from Lynch's cross.

In a post match interview with BBC Sport, Davies said he was pleased with a point but his side could have got all three:

'It would be interesting to see the shots on goal count, because I certainly felt we deserved at least a point.

We played against a first class team, we had a big education against, not a Championship team, but more of a continental side in the way they rotated and played.'

'The discipline and effort of our side was first class, they had 1 chance in the second half but they had good possession.'

'With the chances we created we could have taken three points, our goalkeeper hasn't had a lot to do but we knew they were a good side.'

'I am very proud of the players, delighted for the fans and I thank them for the great support they gave us today.'

Swansea's third draw in as many games sees us go up a place to 8th, thanks to Derby's 2-1 win against Bristol City, who drop down to 9th.

Next up for the Swans is Plymouth Argyle at home on Tuesday night.
