Swansea City Concede Another Late Equaliser

Swansea City conceded another late equaliser to drop 2 points away at Plymouth Argyle this evening as Orlandi handballed in the box to give away a penalty.

There was plenty of controversy involving the late spot-kick decision. Dorus de Vries saved the first attempt, but it was re-taken as he came off his line before it was taken. The Dutch keeper also saved the second kick, but he was livid with his defenders for not clearing the loose ball as Johnson netted from the rebound.

Darren Pratley rounded off an impressive first half display with our opening goal early in the second half, but the Swans couldn't find that second killer goal.

Paulo Sousa made some surprising changes to his line-up, making 5 from the team that drew 1-1 against Newcastle United on Saturday.

Tom Butler and Jazz Richards were given starts and the Swansea boss changed formation to 4-4-2, fielding Lee Trundle and Gorka Pintado up front. The Spaniard had 2 great chances to give us the lead in the first half but he was denied by some great saves from the goalkeeper.

The Swans will be immensely disappointed with tonight's result. We dominated the majority of the game and Plymouth Argyle hardly had a decent effort on goal, but yet again we were punished for not putting away our chances and killing games off after going a goal in front.

We now travel to Derby County on Saturday, and they won 5-3 tonight at home to Preston North End.
