Rodgers: We Deserved A Point vs Wigan

Rodgers: We Deserved A Point vs Wigan

Swansea City Brendan Rodgers was again very proud of his team after they won their first Premier League point of the season at home to Wigan Athletic.

"If we can't get a goal or even look like scoring against them we are going to struggle."

HAVE YOUR SAY
There were no goals from either side but they both had excellent chances to take home all three points. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and chairman Dave Whelan both thought they deserved to win, but Rodgers disagreed as he saw his side dominate the opening 45 minutes.

Rodgers said:

'I was very proud of the team today,'

'We grew again from Monday night and showed great qualities on the ball.

'As a team we were very, very good. We created a lot in the box but at this level you need to put them away.

'I thought a point was the least we deserved. We created a number of chances and we were just waiting for one to go in.

'It's a mark of the confidence of the team that for long spells today we were outstanding.'


Rodgers and his side will be looking to score their first goal and get their first win of the season next Saturday as they host Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium.

swans should be happy enough about that, good to get off and running with a point, a clean sheet and we created some good chances, not sure on Graham but hopefully he can score soon to boost his confidence because he seems to be lacking some right now

If Graham isn't scoring then he needs to work harder for the team. He isn't drawing defenders out of position as Borini did. Dissappointing so far!!!!
