Swansea draw with Aston Villa

Swansea City moved up to eighth in the Premier League, with a 2-2 draw at home to Aston Villa on New Year's Day.

Laudrup frustrated with draw

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup was left frustrated by his side's wastefulness in front of goal, despite a late equaliser securing a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.

'We did not win because we only scored one goal from seven chances with that first-half performance', he said. 'It could have been 4-0 after 12 minutes - but we know how it is when you don't take chances.' Top scorer Michu was back for Swansea, but was among the guilty men, hitting the post twice.

Wayne Routledge put them in front early, but Villa hit back. Danny Graham's late equaliser was his second goal in as many games since being back in the team - he's said he's keen to stay and fight for his place at the Liberty Stadium.
