Point pleases Nordfeldt

First team

Kristoffer Nordfeldt saluted another creditable away point for Swansea City after Graham Potter’s drew 0-0 at Wigan.

Nordfeldt returned between the sticks to play his first game since the end of August as the Swans recorded their sixth clean sheet of the campaign at the DW Stadium on Tuesday night.

The 29-year-old made a key save in the latter stages to deny substitute Will Grigg as the Swans moved into the Championship play-off spots during an eventful stalemate.

And the Swedish international, who was one of three changes to the starting XI line up, believed the performance and result shows signs of the Swans’ improvement.

“If you look at the chances I think we deserved more from the game,” said Nordfeldt. “The game really opened up and we were the better team.

“We created a lot of chances - it is just a shame we did not put one away.

“They had chances too and I was happy to be there to deny them. I am looking to help the team as much as possible and I hope to get more chances to do that.

“Wigan have not lost at home yet so coming away from home and getting another point and clean sheet a good result.

“I think we are taking steps in the right direction.”

Despite facing a big challenge on the pitch, Nordfeldt has had some welcomed news off it.

The keeper recently celebrated the birth of his second child, adding: “I just celebrated the birth of my second child. Becoming a father has helped drive and motivate me.

“Family is the most important thing for me. Family will always come first but it is important people know that Swansea City is a part of my family."
