Mixed feelings for Ben

Posted on 5 October 2015  - 17:00

Ben Davies was disappointed not to return victorious to his own back yard - but saw the draw against Swansea as a positive.

The Welsh full-back was back in his home town and up against his former club in Sunday's 2-2 draw ahead of a huge week of international football.

Christian Eriksen curled home two free-kicks as we came from behind twice to draw but it was a game we dominated for large periods - Lukasz Fabianski made nine saves - and general opinion coming out of the dressing room was that we should really have won.

"We had plenty of chances and it was a shame not to come away with the three points but on the road after being behind twice has to been seen a point gained," said Ben.

"It’s a bit of a strange feeling because it’s a game we should have won and we’re disappointed not to have done so.

"The goals we conceded weren’t our best but sometimes in these games you have to grind out the result in any way you can.

"We now have the international break and I’ve a couple of big games for Wales but when we’re all back we’re all be straight back at it."

Ben has now hooked up with the Wales squad for a defining week in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Wales travel to Bosnia on Saturday before a final group match against Andorra back in Cardiff on Tuesday requiring two points to secure a place in next summer's finals in France - and their first appearance in a major final since 1958.

"It’s a massive week for us," said Ben, who spoke to us last week about this week ahead. "We’re so close and now it’s time to get over the line."
