Cork: We deserved more than a point
7th February 2015
Jack Cork felt the Swans were unlucky not to take all three points from Saturday's 1-1 draw against Sunderland.
Garry Monk's side came from a goal down at the interval to earn a share of the points as they remained ninth in the Premier League table.
Sunderland broke the deadlock just minutes before the interval as Jermain Defoe grabbed his second goal in as many games, but the returning Ki Sung-Yueng levelled midway through the second half to earn Swansea a point.
And Cork felt that the hosts deserved more than a share of the points at the Liberty Stadium.
"Possession-wise it was pretty even, but I think we probably had a few more clear cut chances than they did," he said.
"We had a couple that flashed across goal, Bafe (Gomis) had a few chances, Ki had one disallowed, so I think we were also a bit unlucky not to come away with the win.
"But that's football, that's the way it goes sometimes and we ended up having to come back from a goal down. In the second half we got going again and the boy got the ball down and played some good stuff."
Cork was making his full debut for the Swans after completing his move from Southampton and the former England Under-21 international was pleased with his maiden appearance.
"It's always hard to come into a team when you've only had three or four days of training," he said. "But I'm reasonably pleased with how it went and hopefully I can be involved again on Wednesday against West Brom.
"Four points from six is a good return and if we can keep that up between now and the end of the season we'll have a good run in."
