O'Neill: Draw all we deserved

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill admitted his side had been well below their best as they drew 0-0 with Swansea at the Stadium of Light.

The home side failed to manage a single shot on target and the visitors dominated possession in the first half before the Black Cats improved after the interval.

"We didn't play very well at all, the point was about as much as we deserved," O'Neill said.

"We had no game at the weekend and I thought that would help us immensely, we rested up and got ourselves prepared.

"I thought Alfred (N'Diaye) was a little bit lost, overall we were second to the ball and allowed Swansea to dictate the pattern to the game and at home that wasn't good enough."
