Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is still confident that the goals will soon come for his side after another goalless draw at home.
The Swans have still yet to score a goal in three League games but manager Brendan Rodgers is still taking the positives out of the performances as his side continue to create chances.
Danny Graham had the best of the chances, heading wide from 7 yards while Sinclair also scored a superb individual effort, but his 30-yard strike hit the crossbar.
Sunderland also had opportunities to win all three points, as they tested goalkeeper Michel Vorm on numerous occasions.
'I think if we just have a bit of Lady Luck we can get that finishing touch to a great bit of front play and creativity.
'It's certainly one of the things that you need in this league is that persistence and perseverance, and obviously we showed a lot of character in the game today.
'Sunderland have some wonderful players even if their last couple of results haven't been what they wanted.
'They went away to Liverpool and got a result, so for us it was a great indicator today and a look to see if we can really compete at the level and I think we showed that we can.'
'We had five shots on target today and we just missed out on a little bit of luck to get the finishing touches,'
'I think that will come. The most important thing is that our confidence level is high and we looked to get on the ball and Sunderland played well as well.
'Steve (Bruce) is a terrific manager and like I said they had exceptional players up front, players that can give you a problem and did so today.'
