Sweet and sour moment for Bony
6th October 2014
Wilfried Bony experienced mixed feelings despite getting off the mark in the Swans' 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.
The Ivorian found the net for the first time this season as he collected a return pass from Gylfi Sigurdsson before firing the Swans ahead at the Liberty.
Papiss Cisse levelled before the break but the Swans were ahead once more as Wayne Routledge chipped the onrushing Tim Krul from Sigurdsson's neat pass.
And after Bony was denied by a superb Krul save, up popped Cisse once again to claim a share of the spoils.
The Swans striker, who is joining up with the Ivory Coast for their international matches this week, revealed it was a disappointing outcome for Garry Monk and co.
"It was a good feeling for me, but I'm not happy because of the result," said Bony.
"We went close to scoring another goal when we were leading, but their keeper made two fantastic saves.
"We were in the lead twice but they came back and got a point. That is not a good result for us because we should have gone on to win that game.
"Three points would have been a big boost for us going into the international break, but we have had to accept just one."
