Bolton v Swansea City: 'We did enough for win'
SCOTT Sinclair reckons Swansea City did enough to return from Bolton with victory — but insists they will soon shake off the disappointment of having to settle for a draw.
Sinclair put Swansea ahead with a superb finish just six minutes into Saturday's clash at the Reebok Stadium, only for Chris Eagles to hit back just before the quarter-hour mark.
Though the Trotters are scrapping for survival, it was Swansea who looked hungrier and pushed hardest for the winner.
Sinclair, Steven Caulker, Ashley Williams, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Danny Graham all had chances to add to Swansea's goal tally, but were left frustrated in Lancashire.

"They came back really quickly, but as a team I thought we did really well after that," said the winger.
"We didn't quite get the three points that we wanted, but one is better than nothing.
"We created a lot of chances in the second half, Danny hit the bar, and we worked their keeper a lot."
The point keeps Swansea in 12th.
With three matches remaining against Wolves, Manchester United and Liverpool, Swansea are aiming for a top-half finish to cap a sensational first season in the Premier League.
"It's just a shame that we didn't get a couple more goals and the win against Bolton," added Sinclair. "We are a little disappointed not to have got the win, but the gaffer said we'd take a point, move on and continue to push forward."
