Chances were hard to come by but the Black Cats were grateful to Bramble for a superb block in the last minute of injury time which prevented Graham - a transfer target of Sunderland - getting a clear shot on goal.

"I have to say it was a fair result," O'Shea told Sky Sports. "Swansea had two of the clearest chances.

"We could have been better going forward and both teams cancelled each other out, but it was a great tackle from Titus which stopped Graham getting the winner."

Earlier in the game Swansea felt they should have had a penalty when Itay Shechter went down under O'Shea's challenge.

Asked if he had been concerned O'Shea said: "No, I think a few times before that he had gone over fairly easily so I think the referee had that in mind so I wasn't concerned too much."

Swansea captain Ashley Williams said: "It's a tough place to come and I think we played well and stuck to our game plan.

"We nearly nicked it in the end but a draw is a fair result. We are happy with a draw to be honest."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
