Half-Time Report: Defenders dominate at Liberty

Chances are rare in a tight first half between Swansea City and Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium.

An uneventful first half between Swansea City and Stoke City at the Liberty Stadium has ended goalless.

In a mismatch of playing styles, both teams enjoyed brief spells of domination in the early stages but neither team could create any clear chances.

Ki Sung-Yeung had a good chance to open the scoring midway through the first period but his effort flew wide of the post following good work from Pablo Hernandez.

Despite his recent form, Michu wasted an excellent chance when he headed wide from close range after Angel Rangel had delivered a superb cross from the right side of midfield.

In a rare attack Matthew Etherington had the opportunity to snatch a goal on the stroke of half-time but his weak effort was directed straight at Michel Vorm.
