Potter: Point a good way to end

First team

Graham Potter felt a point away from home was a pleasing way for Swansea City to round off their Championship campaign at Blackburn.

The Swans have ultimately secured a 10th place finish in the Championship after playing out a 2-2 draw with Blackburn on the final day of the campaign.

The visitors had trailed to a Darragh Lenihan goal, but responded with headers from Courtney Baker-Richardson and Oli McBurnie.

However, a first win at Ewood Park since 1971 was not to be as Bradley Dack scored shortly after the interval to ensure the spoils were shared.

It means Swansea have concluded Potter's first season at the helm with just one defeat from their last nine games, and he was happy enough with a point on their travels.

"In the end it is a good point for us, we had to battle in that second half," he said.

"In the first half we were good, we had some good play after being a bit scrappy to start with and we got control of the game.

"We got into the lead, responding well after a disappointing first goal. We had a really good chance to make it 3-1 and make it a bit easier for ourselves.

"But, credit to Blackburn, they came back into the game. They scored an early goal which gave them a lift and we had to battle and fight.

"We had to ride our luck a bit but to claim a point away from home is not a bad result."
