- Sigurdsson hits post
- Bradley’s first point in PL
- Swansea without a win in 8
Swansea City had to settle for a draw against Watford on Saturday as Bob Bradley’s first game in charge at the Liberty Stadium ended in slight disappointment.
Bradley’s men came the closest to scoring as Gylfi Sigurdsson struck the post and the Welsh outfit created several chances in the second half which they couldn’t put away.
With the point Swansea now has five for the season, while Walter Mazzarri‘s Watford has 12 points and hasn’t conceded in their last two games away from home.

A glorious chance then arrived for Swansea as Sigurdsson whipped in a cross from the right which found Mike Van der Hoorn but his effort was saved by Gomes.
Sigurdsson then came inches away from giving Swansea a late lead as Barrow found him on the edge of the box but the Icelandic international sent his curling shot into the post. Agonizingly close.
Moments later Watford broke after a Swansea corner and Nordin Amrabat put his shot just over as the Hornets almost stole all three points but in the end they’d be the happier side with a point.
