. . . joy and frustration for Roland after first league goal
Roland Lamah admitted it was a case of mixed emotions after his first Premier League goal earned a share of the spoils at Aston Villa.
The Belgian international headed home Pablo Hernandez’s cross in the 36th minute to put the Swans level after Gabriel Agbonlahor’s seventh-minute opener.
The Swans went on to dominate the game following their equaliser, but they couldn’t find the winning goal.
And Lamah, who notched his first Swans goal in the Europa League defeat in Petrolul Ploiesti in August, admits it he felt a mixture of joy and frustration following the stalemate at Villa Park.
“I have mixed emotions because although it was a great feeling to score my first goal for the club, I think we should have won the game,” said Lamah, who is on loan from Osasuna.
“We had a lot of possession in the game. We worked very hard but we just couldn’t find the winning goal.
“I am feeling good. I have waited a long time for my first goal, and it was good to get it but it was frustrating not to get the three points.”
