Laudrup pleased as Swansea hold Sunderland

Michael Laudrup was content with a draw but felt his Swansea City side could have clinched all three points at Sunderland with any luck.

The visiting Swans denied the Black Cats any shots on target throughout the 90 minutes and were unable to score themselves but Laudrup was full of compliments for his players, especially after a positive showing following their Capital One Cup semi-final triumph over Chelsea.

"In the first half we dominated completely, the only but was that we did not score," Laudrup told Sky Sports 2. "Second half was a little more 50/50 but without being dangerous.

"We had two huge chances with Nathan Dyer and in the last minute with Danny Graham, so maybe we should have won the game but my players' performance was a great reaction after the second leg against Chelsea.

"We play away against a good side and I didn't see one clear goal chance from Sunderland."
