Andy King believes Swansea City should focus on the positives following their 1-1 draw with Everton.

Jordan Ayew’s second-half equaliser rescued a point after Carlos Carvalhal’s side fell behind when Kyle Naughton put through his own net just before the break.

The Swans were unforunate not to take all three points after creating the better chances over the 90 minutes.

But while he was disappointed to miss out on victory, King insists the Swans can take heart from their performance.

“When you play well, you always want to go away with three points,” he said. “Obviously, we’re disappointed but, if we play like that between now and the end of the season, we’ll have nothing to worry about.

“When you miss the number of chances that we did, you do start to wonder whether or not it’s going to be our day, especially when they scored a lucky goal.

“But we didn’t let it knock the stuffing out of us. We kept going and eventually got the goal.

“It would’ve been good to get the three points, but it’s another point in the right direction with five games left.”
