Half time at Swansea

It’s one all, and in all honesty that’s rather flattering to Forest. The Swans took the lead when Morgan stood off his man allowing a shot that beat Smith, but rebounded off the post and heartbreakingly struck the prone keeper and trickled over the line.

Forest responded shakily, allowing the home side far too much space in and around the box. Chambers in particular looked particularly exposed, and Smith made two excellent saves to keep us within touching distance.

The equaliser wasn’t clear from our end, but De Vries appeared to spill an effort which was bundled over the line by an as yet unidentified scorer, possibly McGugan. Forest now regained their composure and whilst not crafting too many clear cut chances, looked at least at the same level as their hosts.

The Swans had the final say before half time, a corner headed narrowly over, and an author biting hard on his tongue as a particularly retarded Forest fan started laying into Smith for not recklessly trying to claim the ball.

I’d say it’s been a satisfactory rather than pleasing half, at times we’ve looked horrendously incompetent and shapeless, but there have been flashes of excitement. Very much hoping for able improved second half.
