Swans held on sombre day

Swansea and Aston Villa played out a subdued goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium in a game overshadowed by the death of Wales manager Gary Speed.

The death of the 42-year-old was confirmed just over an hour before kick-off and a minute's silence was announced as two sides lined up on the field, which quickly gave way to a spontaneous round of applause and chants of "there's only one Gary Speed".

Given the overwhelming sense of sadness it was perhaps no surprise that the match was a drab affair.

Substitute Leroy Lita fired narrowly wide with Swansea's best chance, while man-of-the-match Gabriel Agbonlahor was twice denied by Michel Vorm and Chris Herd headed wide at the other end.
