Dyer is happy to take his share of punishment from defenders, if it means that Swansea continue what has by and large been an impressive start to life in the top flight.
"I think I must be sponsored by niggles at the moment," Dyer joked. "But you have to take the knocks and bruises.
"That comes with the job and if I'm doing my thing to help the team, I'm happy.
"I'm a bit disappointed I didn't get on the scoresheet but I will get back on the training pitch and practice my finishing. I have a never-say-die attitude and that's the way forward."
