Mixed emotions for Oli

Oli McBurnie had mixed emotions after his last-gasp strike earned the Swans a point in a 3-3 draw with Birmingham City.

Graham Potter’s side had led twice against the Blues, who were reduced to ten men in first-half stoppage time following Kristian Pedersen’s double booking, thanks to goals from Daniel James and McBurnie.

The visitors were resilient, however, with Garry Monk on the cusp of victory against his former club as Che Adams curled in a stunning goal to give Birmingham the lead in the second half.

But McBurnie popped up in stoppage time to claim a point for the Swans, who are now seven games unbeaten, with his 15th goal of the season.

“I’m buzzing to get the goals, but I can’t help but feel disappointed with the result,” said the Scottish international.

“I thought we dominated most of the game, but we conceded three sloppy goals. When you score three goals at home against a team with 10 men, that should be enough to get the three points.

“We’ll take the point and move on. The positive is that we’re still undefeated in 2019, but there are definitely things to work on.”
