Sinclair denies Spurs

Next Story

Scott Sinclair's scrambled late equaliser earned Swansea a deserved 1-1 draw and denied Tottenham the chance to close within four points of the Barclays Premier League summit at the Liberty Stadium.

Rafael van der Vaart had given the visitors the lead a minute before the break as he capitalised on a defensive error from Joe Allen to sweep home with the help of a deflection from Ashley Williams.

Swansea had not managed to pick up a single point this season after conceding the first goal, but they bucked the trend as a period of heavy pressure was rewarded when Brad Friedel hesitated when dealing with a deflected Angel Rangel cross for Sinclair to nip in and claim his fifth goal of the campaign.
