Swans boss frustrated after home draw against struggling Barnsley
“Overall, over the full 90 minutes, to come here to Swansea and be the better team, it’s a good performance even though we didn’t get the result,” said Asbaghi.
“We are in a situation where we have to depend on other results. What we need to do with five games left is show the same spirit that we showed in this game.
“This was not a team which showed any signs of giving up anything. We get a good counter-attack to score the goal which put us 1-0 ahead.
“After that we even hit the post to make it 2-0, but instead Swansea equalise to make it 1-1. It was a really decisive moment in the game.
“I don’t think any team can come here, in any game almost, and win the possession, but it’s about creating the most chances, and I believe if we look at this game overall, we are the ones who created the best chances.”
Amine Bassi played Gomes through on goal with the striker drilling it through Andy Fisher’s legs to fire the visitors ahead after the break.
They nearly went 2-0 up when Swansea’s Joel Latibeaudiere hit his own post, but Ntcham equalised for the home side with his fourth goal of the season as he rifled the ball into the top corner.
Matthew Wolfe and Cauley Woodrow missed late chances for the visitors.
