Match Reaction vs N Forest

Match Reaction vs N Forest

Kenny Jackett said his side should have today's game after only managing a 0-0 draw against 2nd placed Nottingham Forest.

He said: 'Paul Smith made some good saves but I still feel we should have won. The game opened up in the second half and he made some good saves, but it's frustrating not to win after the way we performed.

'I always feel like it's two points dropped when you draw 0-0 at home and it's the same this time.

'It's tough because this is a frustrating run in which we've deserved more than we've got after the way we've performed.

'But there are a lot of positives to take from this and we must go into our next game with the same attitude and spark because this division is still open.'


The Swans had the better of the first half and were the side creating the most chances but our finishing let us down as Craney and Britton missed some good goal opportunities.

Calderwood's side looked happy to go home with a point during the game until the last 20 minutes or so as they tried to nick all three points.

At the other end though, Akinfenwa forced their keeper into the best save of the day with a header at the far post.

Forest manager Colin Calderwood thought it was a good game and said: 'It was a good game. Swansea were better in the first half but I thought we were much better in the second and were pretty dominant.

'We found our legs a bit in the second half and created a lot of problems for Swansea but couldn't take our chances.

'It's an excellent point but I really thought we would score because we looked a real threat.

'We kept going for 90 minutes and all the things that can easily go wrong for you away from home didn't happen and we were defensively solid.

'It's exciting now. It's getting tight at the top and to get a draw away from home at one of your promotion rivals is something to be positive about.'


Swansea City are at home on Tuesday night as they entertain Gillingham at the Liberty Stadium. It's a must win game as we are continuing to slip down the League.

doesn't matter that it was Forest, we need to be winning our home games and we should have won, we had some great chances to score and we didn't, Forest didn't really cause some serious problems so its dissapointing really. we're 8th now and the pressure is just adding up every week with these results.
