Brendan Rodgers didn't blame David Cotterill for his first half penalty miss, saying it was just 'one of those things'.
The Swansea City manager believed tonight's 0-0 result at home to League leaders QPR was a fair result, but they could have been the first team to beat Neil Warnock's side if Cotterill had converted his spot kick after Darren Pratley was fouled.
Our poor conversion rate from penalty kicks continues as it was Cotterill's second miss from the spot this season, after missing a very similar attempt away at Norwich City earlier in the campaign.
'I'm still very pleased. In the last two games, we got four points out of six.'
'There were not a lot of chances [against QPR] and I think the result was fair. Obviously we're disappointed having had the penalty and not converted it, but that's one of those things.
'QPR are a very good side and that's why they're at the top and obviously we're very strong here at home.
'There were not many chances in the game. We had good possession and good control, but there were very little chances of note.
But I'm still very pleased. The last two games, we got four points out of six so I must be happy.'
'We've been very, very good up until now - it's just the type of game we have to get used to.
'It's [two home draws] not a concern; it's something that we must keep working.
'It's a point against a very good side and keeps a clean sheet here as well - we've only conceded one goal in all competitions here, which is a terrific record and with a wee bit more luck we probably would have won the game.
'We've shown over the course of 12 games that we can be up there, it's just keeping that mental pace and that ambition and if we have a wee bit of luck and steer clear of injuries then I think we can be there or thereabouts along with QPR.
'The position we're in at the moment is excellent. We want to grow and keep performing and moving up the table, but we're happy.'
