Fabianski praises Swans defence
27th September 2014
Lukasz Fabianski praised his defence after the Swans secured a point away at Sunderland.
The home side had the better chances of a poor first half at the Stadium of Light, with Fabianski having to be at his best to deny Adam Johnson and Santiago Vergini.
The Swans registered just one shot on target through Gylfi Sigurdsson and were reduced to ten men late on when Angel Rangel was shown a second yellow card.
Steven Fletcher wasted a good chance to win it for the hosts but he headed wide and the Swans moved their points tally onto double figures after six games.
"I was pleased with my performance," said Fabianski. "And also with the team as well.
"We were in a difficult situation near the end with the red card, but managed to get something from the game.
"There were a lot of set pieces and balls into the box. but I thought we dealt with that threat very well.
"Federico (Fernandez) is a new player in English football and he had a different game to face today, with plenty of crosses and physical play.
"But he and Ash did really well and it was a good point for us in the end."
