Kasey Palmer | We were frustrated, but a point keeps us moving forward

Kasey Palmer is encouraged by the way Swansea City continue to put points on the board, despite the frustration at missing out on a maximum haul against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Swans produced a strong second-half fightback against the Owls, with Andre Ayew cancelling out Adam Reach’s effort for the visitors.

Steve Cooper’s side thought they had found a late winner when Kasey Palmer’s acrobatic finish found the far corner, but it was controversially ruled out for a foul on the Owls’ substitute keeper Joe Wildsmith.

The events of those final moments left Swansea nursing a sense of what might have been, but they have little time to dwell on it with a trip to face Nottingham Forest looming on the horizon.

And Palmer – who made an impact off the bench against Wednesday – believes the Swans ability to avoid defeats, having suffered just two in 13 games, has kept them moving forward.

“Of course, at the end we felt it should have either been a penalty to us or the goal should have stood. It’s frustrating but there is nothing we can do now,” he said.

“We wanted those extra two points badly but, when we don’t win, it’s important that we put something on the board because it is a long season.

“All those little things add up and a draw is better than a loss, we take that point and go looking for more.

“I think we can take a lot of confidence from the second-half performance. I think if we take that into the Forest game on Sunday we will give ourselves a chance of the three points.”
