Draw was probably fair, says Fabianski
29th November 2014
Lukasz Fabianski believes a draw was probably a fair result as the Swans had to settle for a point against Crystal Palace.
The hosts started brightly and went ahead through Wilfried Bony's strike, but were pegged back when Marouane Chamakh was adjudged to have been fouled by Jonjo Shelvey, and Mile Jedinak netted from the spot.
Fabianski and opposite number Julian Speroni had to be alert to keep out efforts from Chamakh and Gylfi Sigurdsson respectively as both sides claimed a share of the spoils.
But the Swans keeper was left frustrated that the hosts couldn't reward their dominance with the three points.
"We were on top of them for most of the 90 minutes," he said. "Unfortunately, we ended up with a draw and we're disappointed with the final result.
"In some of the games this season we seem to play well up until the first goal and then we seem to lose our focus a little. But once you score you need to push even harder.
"Today we gave a sloppy goal away and it's always difficult when you concede because you have to focus and reorganise.
"They tried to push on after that and we managed to get through that period.
"We wanted to get the three points but there were no real clear-cut chances for either team in the second half.
"It was a difficult game and their approach in the second half was to defend the result.
"But we'll draw some conclusions from this game and look ahead to Tuesday now."
