O'Neill upset with "disappointing" Sunderland performance

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was upset with his players after their stalemate against Swansea City.

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was upset with his players after their stalemate against Swansea City.

Swans keeper Gerhard Tremmel had only one save of note to make from Sebastian Larsson's first-half free-kick, and although opposite number Simon Mignolet was little busier, Nathan Dyer passed up a glorious opportunity before Graham's big moment.

O'Neill said: "We played very disappointingly in the game. Coming on the back of a couple of great wins, I thought we were going into the game with plenty of confidence, and also with the weekend off, I thought we would be refreshed and really ready to go.

"But other than a spell just after half-time for a while, I thought Swansea, possibly without looking all that fantastically dangerous themselves, really dictated a lot of the game."
