Harry Darling was full of praise for Swansea City for Andy Fisher after the goalkeeper made a series of fine saves to deny Coventry City as the Swans and the Sky Blues played out an entertaining goalless draw at the Swansea.com Stadium.

Darling and Joel Piroe both went close for the home side with Olivier Ntcham also forcing two really good saves from visiting keeper Ben Wilson.

Fisher denied both Matty Godden and Gustavo Hamer in one-on-one situations and, at full time, Ben Cabango and Darling rushed to celebrate with the keeper as he earned his second clean sheet in three games.

“We were all buzzing for Fish,” said Darling.

“We were really praising him at the end of the game, because he’s earned us the draw [against Coventry].

“All credit to Fish, he’s a really good pro and he stuck at it.

“He knows he’s made a few mistakes but it’s about how you bounce back and he has bounced back really well.”

With six matches of the season remaining, the Swans sit 15th, nine points above the relegation zone and 11 points off the play-offs, but Darling says the side want to finish strongly in order to build for next season.

“I think the big frustration this season is that we know the levels we can and have hit, we just haven’t done it enough,” he added.

“We can’t do anything about that now, all we can do is keep improving for the next game and be ready for next season.  

“We want to perform well every week so we can build for next season.”
