Bilić on ‘tight’ test at Swansea

Slaven Bilić admitted Saturday’s goalless draw at Swansea City was a “fair result”.

The Baggies, who had won their last three away games prior to the trip to the Liberty Stadium, couldn’t break the stubborn and organised Swans down in Wales and were made to settle for a point.

But despite being able to find a way past the hosts in an attacking sense, the boss was pleased to record a clean sheet at the other end of pitch – a clean sheet which helped keep Albion six points clear of third-place Fulham.

Slaven said: “It was a very tight game and it’s a fair result.

“There were very few chances for both sides.

“I thought we were good in the first half and I thought we controlled it.

“I was expecting us to raise the level after the break but at the start of the second half we didn’t do that.

“They were on the front foot and we came back into it in the last 20-25 minutes.

“We had a few attacks that were promising but those shots or crosses that we had just didn’t have enough quality to win the game.

“It was a tough away game. We have a clean sheet and one point.

“With the results from Forest and Fulham, it’s a good point, but we didn’t deserve more.

“We could’ve stolen it at the end but there simply weren’t enough shots today.

“We have to be happy with the point.

“We are looking to win every game, but it’s now one game less to play.

“We have to do better to win games.”
