Swans draw blank again
Swansea's inability to take their chances left them still awaiting their first Barclays Premier League goal and win after a goalless draw with Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium.
Record signing Danny Graham headed their best chance wide when unmarked inside the box, while the striker forced two fine saves from Simon Mignolet and Scott Sinclair stuck the crossbar.
The Black Cats, also without a win, threatened through Asamoah Gyan, while debutant John O'Shea hit the woodwork. The former Manchester United defender almost opened his Sunderland account inside two minutes as he headed against the crossbar from Sebastian Larsson's corner, while Gyan fired wide after neat play by the Sweden international.
Swans goalkeeper Michel Vorm was then forced to make a smart stop to deny Gyan in the 13th minute. Vorm was called into action again when Steven Caulker's backpass sold him short, and the Dutchman put in a well-timed tackle on Gyan.
But Sinclair came close to giving Swansea a 24th-minute lead as his 25-yard strike came back off the crossbar. The winger's strike ignited a period of Swansea pressure and it took a superb Wes Brown block to deny Graham.
The first genuine flashpoint arrived as Lee Cattermole went down holding his face after a tussle with Kemy Agustien, but referee Mark Halsey took no action, despite replays suggesting an elbow.
Graham missed the best chance of the half as he headed wide from inside 12 yards with the goal at his mercy.
Swansea continued to attack after the restart as, from a deep Neil Taylor cross, Graham saw his header saved by Mignolet.
The hosts could have been punished as a Sunderland break found Gyan in space, but the outstanding Vorm was again up to the task.
Graham shot straight at Mignolet while Sinclair blazed wildly over as the hosts fought in vain for a winner.
