Goalkeeper Dorus De Vries says he feels guilty about conceding a goal against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Swansea City took the lead early on in the second half at the Riverside Stadium on the weekend but Flood equalises with a lucky cross from the touchline which flew over the Dutchman's head and into the net.
A fluke, but De Vries believes he was at fault:
"Of course I feel guilty, the guys all said it wasn`t my fault and there was nothing I could do about it, but you always have your own ideas about how you could have stopped it.
"As a keeper, after doing well for so many games, you always know you will make a mistake at some point. But, if this is the biggest mistake I make this season, it`s fine by me.
"You don`t want to concede like that, but it happens sometimes.
"You just have to learn from it and, having never conceded like that before, I will take something from this experience and make sure it doesn`t happen again.
"It was unbelievable. I watched it back and it`s hard to take because I took up the right position to take the cross.
"But then the movement of the ball is completely different and it sneaks just under the crossbar.
"It`s tough because, as a goalkeeper, you never want to get beaten by those.
"It comes out of nowhere and, when you concede like that, it`s a blow for the team and a bitter pill to take."
Despite conceding the goal, De Vries was named in the team of the week along with team-mates Garry Monk and Gorka Pintado. That should make him feel better!
