Luke Cundle | That goal has been a long time coming

Luke Cundle Hull goal

Luke Cundle admitted his second Swansea City goal has been a long time coming after he bagged the equaliser against Hull City on Saturday.

The Swans were behind early when Ozan Tufan's effort took an unfortunate deflection off Ben Cabango and bobbled into the net inside five minutes, but the Swans grew into proceedings and were well deserving of an equaliser when Cundle smartly finished a fine flowing move shortly before the break.

Both sides pressed in the second half with a Cundle header forcing a stop from Karl Darlow, while Tufan came closest to a winner when he rattled Andy Fisher’s crossbar.

“It was about time I scored another goal,” Cundle said. His only other goal this season having come in the reverse fixture in September.

“It’s two against Hull now so if I could play them every week my goal tally might be a bit better!

“It was good play down the left and Pato [Jamie Paterson] gave me the ball. I thought it was a good finish.”

For Cundle – who is on his first loan away from parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers – the match provided a new experience as Hull, like the Swans, looked to dominate the ball and keep possession.

“I thought Hull were a good team,” he added.

“I was just saying in the changing rooms if that’s what it’s like playing against us then… well, I was really tired.

“It was difficult chasing them around.

“We’ve had a good last seven or eight results and on Saturday we were in a battle from minute one. They played the ball nicely and I thought it was a good result in the end.

“Both teams played well and we deserved a point. Eight unbeaten is a great achievement in the Championship. It’s a difficult league to pick up points in.

“We left it too late to get to the play-offs in reality. We did give it all we could, but I’m sure the lads here will want to go and push again next season.”
