Ryder Cup hero Sergio Garcia praises battling Swansea City
SERGIO Garcia hailed Swansea City's attitude after the Ryder Cup winner nearly witnessed a second dramatic comeback inside a week.
The man who was part of the European team who recovered from 10-4 down to beat the USA eight days ago was at the Liberty for Reading's visit to see Pablo Hernandez, his sister's partner.
Swansea trailed 2-0 against the run of play at half-time before goals from Michu and Wayne Routledge saw them level after the break.
And Michael Laudrup's men might have taken all three points if Hernandez had managed to keep a last-gasp effort under the bar after the ball appeared to come back of the arm of Nicky Shorey.

"I thought the second half was really, really good for Swansea and Pablo had a couple of chances," said Garcia.
"One of them looked like a penalty and then he put it over the top.
"I thought Swansea's attitude for the whole game was great.
"They deserved a win, but sometimes you don't get what you deserve."
Garcia took to the Liberty pitch before the game sporting a Swansea training top and clutched the club badge as he was introduced to fans.
"I've played football all my life and I still play a little bit back home in Spain," he added.
"I like Real Madrid and I'm a fan of Swansea now as well.
"It was a great comeback, Swansea deserved a win but unfortunately didn't get it."
