Why Swansea should take the positives from Everton draw

Swansea City took a vital point from Everton on the weekend and they should take confidence despite conceding a late equaliser.

Bob Bradley finally had something to cheer about on Saturday afternoon when Swansea City took a point from Goodison park, against Everton.

He certainly wouldn’t have felt quite that positive about the result on Saturday though, having conceded a late equaliser to spoil the Swans chances of taking all three points home to South Wales.

However, the Swansea boss will certainly look back on the result as a good one and fans, as well as players, must do the same.

It was a real kick in the teeth for Swansea to allow the late concession and once again it was a sloppy defensive error which caused it, but when you’re struggling like the Swans are, you have to take the positives when they arrive.

There’s plenty to work on, that’s for sure and the Seamus Coleman goal was just too easy given the amount of Swansea defenders in the box – They simply must cut those errors out.

Bradley will have defensive errors at the top of his list but he will take comfort in the fact Swansea managed to keep out 13 Everton efforts and 10 corners.

It’s a difficult time when you are stuck at the bottom of the league and negative after negative can often remove the fight and passion from players, so Bradley must make sure his team focus on the positives and take that into the next one.

Swansea host Crystal Palace on Saturday in what looks to be a real must-win game and if they can take the resilience into the game, while adding creativity going forward then they have every chance of collecting a vitally important three points.
