JIM Magilton was happy to take a point from Swansea with Pablo Counago scoring the first and last goals in an entertaining match.

The Spaniard put the Blues ahead a couple of minutes before the break but Ferrie Bodde equalised just after half-time.

Jordi Gomez put the Swans ahead but Counago saved a point for Town with a goal that had a suspicion of offside about it.

Although it was two points dropped the Town boss was happy enough to get something from the match.

Magilton said: “It was a good point in the end as Swansea are a good footballing side.

“We started brightly from the first second but could not sustain it and we allowed them too much

room and if you allow that they will play round you.”

Magilton was delighted that Counago levelled with what was a terrific finish from an Iván campo pass.

Magilton said: “We are trying to get him to run in behind people when he does he is real threat and it was a great finish

“Our goal came against the run of play but it was probably the best bit of quality in the game

Magilton was bemoaning both goals after urging his side at half-time to stay tight.

He said: “At half time we are saying a clean sheet will win us the game but we turned off for both gaols which were poor goals.”

Magilton put on Owen Garvan and Tommy Miller in place of Iván campo and Jon Stead which did not go down well with the crowd who booed and once again chanted 'you don't know what you are doing.'

Magilton said: “We made positive changes as we needed a foothold in midfield and then their second goal probably came against the run of play again as we were showing a lot of determination to score.

“We showed great attitude and character to come back into it but disappointed with out overall quality and play.”
