Swansea City picked up a hard-earned point at Pride Park as Steve Cooper’s men produced a solid display against Derby County.

Here, we look at the key facts and figures from Saturday’s game.

1 – Borja Baston has started consecutive league fixtures for the first time in his Swansea career.

2 – This was just the second time Swansea have failed to score in 12 Championship matches, the other occasion being the 4-0 defeat at QPR in April.

3 – Yan Dhanda’s substitute appearance was just his third league outing of 2019.

4 – Freddie Woodman’s penalty save was the first by a Swansea keeper since Erwin Mulder denied Jarrod Bowen at Hull in December. Martyn Waghorn’s effort was the fourth penalty Swansea had faced since then.

6 – This was just Swansea City’s sixth away clean sheet in the Championship since the start of last season. The two most recent shut-outs had come at Ipswich and Bolton, while Wigan, Middlesbrough and Birmingham were the other sides to fail to net against the Swans on home turf.

9 – This goalless draw was the first time Swansea had left Pride Park with anything to show for their efforts since a 1-0 win in 2010, nine years ago. Swansea’s previous win in the Rams’ back yard was all the way back in 1981.

49 – Mike van der Hoorn is the only player to have started all 48 games the Swans have played since returning to the Championship. Add in his start on the last day of the 2017-18 season against Stoke, and the Dutchman can bring up a half-century of successive starts against Preston.

290 – Nathan Dyer made his 290th league appearance for the Swans. He is on course to become the 21st Swans player to reach 300 for the club.
