Swans left to rue missed chances, says Sigurdsson

1st December 2014

Gylfi Sigurdsson felt the Swans were made to rue their missed chances after being forced to settle for a point against Crystal Palace at the Liberty on Saturday.
Garry Monk's side had led following Wilfried Bony's opening goal after 15 minutes, but Palace hit back from the penalty spot via Mile Jedinak after Marouane Chamakh went down under Jonjo Shelvey's challenge.
The Swans were dominant throughout the game as they enjoyed the vast majority of possession and territorial advantage.
But with the likes of Wayne Routledge, Jonjo Shelvey and Sigurdsson failing to make the most of the chances that the Swans created, the Icelandic midfielder revealed it was a frustrating outcome.
"We started very well and fast - that was the plan - and I thought we would really kick on after Wilfried's goal," said Sigurdsson, who provided another assist for the hosts' opener. "But the penalty was a blow to us, but we had plenty of time to react to that.
"With the chances we created in the first half, we should have finished them off.
"I had a few chances, especially in the second half, and I'm very disappointed with myself not to have taken them. I'm sure the rest of the lads feel the same because we created enough chances to win the game."
