Taylor highlights Swans courage

22nd November 2015

Neil Taylor insists the Swans showed plenty of courage to come from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.

After the Cherries took a two-goal lead inside 25 minutes of the first half, goals from Andre Ayew and Jonjo Shelvey rescued a point for Garry Monk's side.

In a frenetic encounter at the Liberty Stadium, Bournemouth striker Joshua King fired the visitors in front inside ten minutes before Dan Gosling added to their lead midway through the first period.

But Ayew skilfully pulled one back for the Swans on 28 minutes before Shelvey equalised from the spot shortly before the interval.

"At two-nil down you fear the worst, but we showed great courage to fight our way back into the game," said Taylor.

"We're disappointed not to take three points, but a draw is probably a fair result. 

"It was some game. It was an end-to-end match and almost like a basketball game at points, and you have to give credit to Bournemouth, who play very good football.

"We have plenty of character and spirit in this side, but I think we are lacking a bit of confidence in the final third.

"We just have to keep working hard. We picked up a point today, and we now have to go to Liverpool and try and get a result."
