Martin O’Neill accepts in his post-match e-mail that we might have done better, but hints that the good times are just around the corner …
It’s a good point.
When Swansea went down to 10 men I thought that might have been our opportunity to apply a little bit more pressure but unfortunately we weren’t able to do that.
We didn’t cause them any problems inside their penalty area for the last 10-15 minutes.
Swansea are a fine footballing team and when we look back on the match we’ll be able to pick out some things that we should have done better.

It’s our second league game and it was only Steven Fletcher’s first and even though he’s lacking fitness I thought he did exceptionally well.
Stéphane Sessegnon is in the same boat and I don’t think you can afford to have that many players playing in the Barclays Premier League that aren’t fully fit.
That fitness will come over the next couple of weeks – and then it should be fun.
All the best,
