Ben Cabango was delighted to help Swansea City earn their first clean sheet of 2023 after shutting out Bristol City in their 2-0 victory.

Liam Cullen gave the Swans a deserved lead in the 34th minute, before Olivier Ntcham sealed the points with his effort from just inside the area in the 77th minute.

It was a fine performance from the Swans who created numerous chances, taking 11 shots to the Robins’ four.

Cabango and his fellow defenders guarded the box well throughout while Andy Fisher made saves from Alex Scott and Mark Sykes to secure the clean sheet.

“It was wicked to get the three points and the clean sheet,” Cabango said.

“It’s been a while since we’ve done that. I think our performances in the last three weeks have been good but without us getting the three points. On Sunday we had it all.

“We’ve been working so hard as defenders to make sure we keep the clean sheet and it feels really good to have done that.

“Because we hadn’t had a clean sheet for so long, it was special to get one.

“It gives us confidence going into the break now and all the boys will be working so hard so when we come back from the international break, we’ll be ready for the Cardiff City game.

“I think we were more clinical and ruthless in both boxes. Our defensive mentality was really good, we were just putting our bodies on the line and then, when we created chances, we took them.

“We could have created a lot more but obviously the second goal gives you a cushion. When we scored the second it was a bit of a relief and then we just stayed solid at the back.

“Two goals was enough to win so we’ve all done our job.”
