Blackpool boss Ian Holloway was happy to get a point after drawing 0-0 against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium this afternoon.

It was a closely fought game but after a slow start, the Swans dominated most of the possession and had the better chances to win the game.

Holloway said:

‘We earned our point even though our keeper was the busier but if there was only one team going on to win then it probably was Swansea.

‘Some of the decisions made by the referee were a bit finicky because this is a man’s game and there were too many free kicks given by a fussy referee.

‘I can’t understand why Beattie wasn’t booked for falling down in the area because it certainly wasn’t a penalty.

‘I was also disappointed that Swansea never gave us the ball back after we put it out of play when a player was injured.

‘They will think they should have had three points while we are going away happy with one.’


Another three points were there for the taking for Sousa’s side. We were comfortable throughout and our defence or goalkeeper were hardly troubled, yet we’re still struggling to create good chances and to score goals.
