Brendan Rodgers said he was happy to get a point at Barnsley yesterday after a poor first half performance.
Scott Sinclair scored a late penalty after the Tykes went in front early on.
While Robins disagreed with the spot kick decision, Rodgers had the opposite view of it and said:
'I am happy with a point after the first half performance.
'We weren't aggressive enough at defending.
The reaction of the team in the second half was outstanding.
'It was a clear penalty; it was a clearer penalty than the
Barnsley goal looked.
'I was disappointed at how we defended the corner, it was poor defending. I am happy with the second half; they showed the spirit that there is in that group of players.
'It's important when you are trying to build a good side that you have that camaraderie in the team. We sorted one or two things out at half-time.
'Leon Britton came on for the last 15 minutes and did a good job.
It's a very tight league and there are some big clubs involved - and we are proud and happy to be among them.
'I've got a great belief in this group of players. We knew when we came here that Barnsley have one of the best home records in the league, they've won eight out of 13 matches so we knew that this was a tough place to come to.'
It was a disappointing day for the Swans really, a decent chance to keep the momentum going against a team in the bottom half, but we drop to 4th after wins for QPR, Cardiff City and Norwich.
