Bersant's mixed feelings

Bersant Celina is on the hunt for more goals after being left with mixed feelings following his maiden Swansea City strike.

The midfielder netted for the first time in Swans colours with a fine individual effort against former club Ipswich Town, where he spent last season on loan from Manchester City.

After receiving the ball from Barrie McKay, Celina surged forward and skipped beyond a challenge before drilling a low shot past Dean Gerken into the bottom corner.

Celina's sweet strike made it 2-2, and had the Swans believing they could grab a late winner on Saturday.

But celebrations were short-lived for Graham Poter's side as Trevoh Chalobah netted a late winner at the Liberty.

“It was a good goal and it meant a lot for me to score my first goal for Swansea,” he said.

“It was a weird feeling to score against Ipswich because I know the players well and had a strong connection with the fans.

“After I scored, I thought it was a great chance for us to go and win the game.

“It was just a shame that it didn’t mean anything in the end.

"We are disappointed not to get anything from the game. I hope I can score some more goals in the games we have coming up - and that they will count for more."
