Mixed emotions from draw
20th April 2013
Ben Davies admitted there were mixed emotions after the Swans were held to a goal-less draw at the Liberty by Southampton.
The Swans are still without a win in their last five games, though they have now drawn the last two.
In what was a frustrating afternoon for Michael Laudrup's side, Nathan Dyer went the closest to breaking the deadlock when his effort was cleared off the line by Maya Yoshida while Jonathan de Guzman was denied by keeper Artur Boruc when he was through on goal.
And despite not picking up the three points, Wales international Davies pointed out a clean sheet as the positive ahead of next weekend's trip to Chelsea.
"We had some good chances and we could have nicked it, but it didn't seem to be our day in front of goal though it was nice to get a clean sheet," added Davies.
"There was a little frustration afterwards, but we now head to Chelsea looking to end our winless streak.
"Neither team wanted to lose the game, so it's another point that pushes us closer to 50 points."
Another positive in the afternoon was the return of Neil Taylor to the matchday squad.
Taylor was an unused substitute as he was included for the first time in the senior squad since returning from the broken ankle which had looked to end his season last September.
And Davies said it was a lift for the whole squad to see his fellow left-back back in the fold.
"It's great to have Tayls back in the squad," added Davies. "Even though he plays in the same position for me, I'm behind him and he is behind me.
"That goes for every position in the squad. We're all looking out for each other and that's been key to our success this season."
