Former boss Brendan Rodgers was left 'frustrated' after his side failed to secure all three points against a resilient Watford last night.
'This is the most disappointed I've been since I came to the club. It's definitely two points dropped.' The Ulsterman told SkySports News
'We controlled and dominated the game particularly in the first half.
'For the majority of the game we played really well but we were defensively very poor for the goal. We didn't do our job right and we conceded a goal.
'It's very surprising considering how well we normally defend as a team. I stressed to the players at half-time that the game was not over at 1-0 and also that we needed to get tighter around the box. Said Rodgers.
Malky Mackay described himself as being 'proud' of the Hornet's point, acknowledging the strengths of Rodgers' Swans:
'So to see the way we performed in the second half was pleasing. It was a good point for us.
'I did think we could achieve the result because even when Swansea had a lot of possession in the first half we still tested their goalkeeper two or three times.
'I told the players at half-time that they needed to show a bit more belief and I felt we were certainly worthy of a point.
'I thought we passed the ball well and I was pleased with the goal we scored.
'We put a lot of work in tactically and I have to praise my staff for that. The players absorbed the information well and the gameplan worked in the second half to get the result.'
It's Micky Adam's Sheffield United next for the 'Orns at the Vic' this Saturday, just four days after Adams finally recorded a win at his boyhood club. Great...
