Williams happy with Swans' response
5th October 2015
Ashley Williams was pleased with the Swans' response against Tottenham as Garry Monk's side shared the spoils in a four-goal thriller on Sunday afternoon.
The Swans bounced back from a 3-1 defeat at Southampton by picking up another point, which moves them onto ten from eight games, at the Liberty.
Monk's men led twice courtesy of an Andre Ayew header and a Harry Kane own goal, but Tottenham replied through two superb Christian Eriksen free-kicks.
And skipper Williams was buoyed by how the team responded to the previous week's defeat.
"I think today's performance will give us more confidence to get back to the levels we should be at," said Williams, who made his 500th appearance in senior football.
"As a group how we have responded this week has been brilliant - we have been really professional about it - I thought we were unlucky not to win against a good team.
"I am happy with the way we performed. We showed a real desire to bounce back from our performance from last week.
"This result can definitely offer us encouragement as we go into the international break.
"We can go away now and focus on our international games before coming back and looking to pick up where we left off here today."
He added: "It was a good game that was entertaining for the fans where both teams tried to win the game.
"I thought we defended well as a team against their chances - our work rate and attitude was good after our performance last week.
"We are disappointed not to get a win at home but we did not lose against a very good side."
