Graham Potter admits his side had to ride their luck in the second half as they left Ewood Park with a point.

Rovers dominated the second period and looked the most likely to snatch a winner after Bradley Dack made it 2-2 two minutes after the re-start.

The Swans had trailed to Darragh Lenihan’s goal midway through the first half before turning the game on its head through Courtney Baker-Richardson and Oli McBurnie.

But the Swans conceded that it was Rovers who were on top after the break, with Potter happy to take a point back to south Wales.

"In the end it is a good point for us, we had to battle in that second half," he said.

"In the first half we were good, we had some good play after being a bit scrappy to start with and we got control of the game.

"We got into the lead, responding well after a disappointing first goal. We had a really good chance to make it 3-1 and make it a bit easier for ourselves.

"But, credit to Blackburn, they came back into the game. They scored an early goal which gave them a lift and we had to battle and fight.

"We had to ride our luck a bit but to claim a point away from home is not a bad result."

The result saw Swansea finish in 10th after relegation from the Premier League last term.

Reflecting on the campaign as a whole, he told his club’s website: “I have enjoyed it.

“It’s been challenging, we have had a lot to deal with but we have made steps. The young players have made their first steps in professional football.

“We are among the youngest in the EFL for games for players under 23, so there is a foundation there and the style of how we want to play football has got better as we have gone on.

“I think April was a result of that process where we got results and ended the season in a good way.

“We have remained unbeaten – even though it was difficult after the Hull game to keep the levels high knowing we were out of the fight – we have to have a rest now, recharge and go again.

“Tenth is where we are, we were not good enough to get in the play-off positions, but we have taken steps and improved. But we still have a bit to do to say we are contenders.”
