Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers hailed a fourth straight clean sheet as the Swans claimed a 2-0 win over Leicester.

Debutant Marvin Emnes came off the bench to break the deadlock five minutes after half-time before Scott Sinclair secured the three points, tapping in an Emnes cross from close range in stoppage time. Swansea have not conceded a goal since late September and have let just one in in seven npower Championship games at home this season.

"We were well worthy of that win and we now have four clean sheets in a row. We have a real desire not to concede goals and I think we've added a bit of excitement and flair at the other end of the pitch," said Rodgers.

"Our intensity and our pressure was really good and allowed us to get the ball back quickly. I was very, very proud with the performance because Leicester are a good team with an international class manager.

"In the first half Leicester were playing deep in defence and I just sensed we needed to change things."
