Michael Laudrup was pleased his Swansea City side had proved they can win ugly - after a scrappy 1-0 victory over St Gallen last night.
Wayne Routledge got the goal early in the second half, meaning Swansea have two wins from two in the Europa League group stages.
The game was also marked by Spanish striker Michu having to leave the pitch for a long time, after cutting his head.
He needed five different shirts during the game.
"I am pleased with the win," Laudrup said. "It was probably not one of our best games but in Europe games are tight and it is always difficult."
"The most positive thing is I don't remember the last time we managed to win when not playing well. Normally we have to play well to win, but tonight we didn't, although we had good moments."
