Swansea City assistant manager Colin Pascoe says yesterday’s 0-0 draw at home to Derby County was a fair result.

The draw ended our winning home run as we struggled to show the same attacking intensity against a solid Derby side.

Pascoe said:

‘A draw was a fair result.

‘It was frustrating for us but they had scored eight goals in two games and made it hard for us.

‘You have to give Derby credit. They came here, worked hard and defended very well. They got blocks in and closed us down well.

‘We did not create enough chances but they defended well.

‘Obviously we missed Scott Sinclair and it is frustrating for him. He had a slight hamstring injury and we didn’t want to risk it.

‘Darren Pratley was the same with his shoulder. But we have two weeks to recover and that will be enough time. They should be fit for the next game. But I thought the players who came in did well.

‘Everyone looks at the league table after 10 games and I think we have had a good start to the season. We want to be in the play-offs at the end of the season and that is the big prize for us.’
