Warnock Pleased With a Point At Swansea City

Warnock Pleased With a Point At Swansea City

Both managers agreed that a draw was a fair result as Swansea City held league leaders QPR to a goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night.

Neil Warnock was pleased with his side's performance, particularly in the first half, but said he expected Swansea City to peg them back in the second half.

The Swans missed a great chance to take the lead in the opening 45 minutes, as David Cotterill missed a penalty - Paddy Kenny saved his weak effort and Warnock believed justice was done:

'I've seen better penalty saves but Paddy (Kenny) still had to make it,'

'Justice was done and I suppose it was probably at the back of Cotterill's mind when he took it.

'But I don't know how the linesman awarded the penalty from his position because he was behind the incident.

'He could not see what part of the body made contact and it was an old-fashioned shoulder charge for me. You can't guess at decisions like that and it was a harsh one for us.

'It is no wonder that the players were disappointed.'


On the game itself, Warnock thought it was a very entertaining game and a good advert for the Championship:

'We came to win the game and I thought we played especially well in the first half,'

'You expect Swansea to have a period (of pressure) with the players they have got so I wasn't surprised they pushed us back a bit in the second half.

'I thought we defended well and broke well. I thought it was two good sides but we had the better chances on the night. It just wasn't meant to be.

'It was a good advert for the Championship.'
