Sunderland skipper John O'Shea felt Titus Bramble was the man to thank after Tuesday night's 0-0 draw with Swansea City.

The Black Cats failed to produce a shot on target at the Stadium of Light before Bramble intervened to deny Swans striker Danny Graham scoring a winner at the death.

"I have to say it was a fair result," O'Shea told Sky Sports 2. "Swansea had two of the clearest chances.

"We could have been better going forward and both teams cancelled each other out, but it was a great tackle from Titus which stopped Graham getting the winner."
