Danny Graham ended a 30-game goal drought to put the newly promoted side ahead before the Swans equalised thanks to a deflection as the Tigers saw strong penalty appeals waved away

Ben Davies admitted Swansea City were lucky to escape with a point following their below-par outing in Monday's 1-1 draw with Hull City.

Danny Graham ended his goal drought to give the visitors a ninth-minute lead and the Swans needed a major stroke of luck to avoid defeat, as Jonjo Shelvey's cross struck Flores on the arm and flew past Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor.

And Wales defender Davies gave credit to Hull, who were denied a penalty when Alex Bruce's header appeared to strike Dwight Tiendalli on the arm in the second half.

"We are a bit disappointed overall." Davies told the club's official website: "We didn't play as well as we can.

"They made it difficult with how organised they were, and in the end I think we were a bit lucky to get a point.

"They came here looking for a point, and when they went 1-0 up they were hoping to hold onto that lead.

"It was difficult to break them down but it was a good goal from us. It was pleasing to get a goal even though we didn't play as well as we usually do.

"We are up to the top of the half, and when you get a point - especially when you've not played that well - it’s not such a bad thing."
