Swansea City midfielder Michu admits that stopping a run of three straight defeats with a comeback against Reading was crucial for morale at the club.

Swansea City forward Michu has praised his side for halting their run of Premier League defeats against Reading.

Michael Laudrup's side trailed the Royals by two goals before Michu reduced the deficit at the Liberty Stadium.

Wayne Routledge completed the comeback with a late equaliser to stop a worrying run of three successive defeats for the Swans.

"It was very strange because we were 2-0 down at half-time but we had all the possession, the territory and the chances," Michu told the club's official website.

"We spoke at half-time and we had the belief we could win the game. What we needed was an early goal, and we got that, and then we just kept putting them under more and more pressure.

"Wayne took his goal very well and we thought we could go on and win the game.

"It is frustrating to only come away with a point because we created so many chances, but we fought back very well and it stopped the run of defeats."

Michu has scored five goals in his seven league appearances since joining the Swans in the summer.
