Swansea skipper Williams proud of Napoli stalemate

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams was proud of their stalemate with Europa League opponents Napoli.

Williams was encouraged after "the Swansea way" held Napoli at bay in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.

He told ITV1: "We're really pleased with the way we played, it tells you a lot that we're disappointed with 0-0.

"The message was to get on the front foot and play the Swansea way and we had a lot of chances, the performance as a whole was brilliant."

Despite denying Napoli an away goal, Garry Monk's side face a stern test in next week's return leg in Naples.

Williams said: "It's going to be a tough game, we're under no illusions going out there but we'll take a lot of heart from tonight.

"It will be a difficult game playing away but we'll get on the front foot again and see what we can do."
