Report: Swans 0 Bournemouth 0

First team

The Swans had to settle for a point as they ended a four-match losing streak with a tense 0-0 draw against Bournemouth at the Liberty.

Wilfried Bony, who captained the Swans for the first time, thought he had struck his first Swans goal since returning to the club only to see his goal ruled out on the stroke of half time.

Aside from that, substitute Leroy Fer went the closest to breaking the deadlock during a closely-fought encounter in SA1, with the Dutchman first being denied from close range by Asmir Begovic before directing his follow up effort wide.

The Swans, who were without Federico Fernandez due to personal reasons, pushed for a winner but they just couldn't find the killer touch.

This result leaves the Swans two points from safety after 13 games.
