Leon Britton helped Swansea hit back to claim a 2-2 draw with Reading, but admits they could have had all three points.

The Swans left themselves with it all to do after seeing Pavel Pogrebnyak and Noel Hunt fire the Royals into a commanding half-time lead.

Michael Laudrup's side refused to lie down, though, and levelled matters through Michu and Wayne Routledge.

They could have won the game comfortably had they made the most of the opportunities which came their way, and Britton admits the result is slightly tinged with disappointment.

He told Sky Sports: "A little bit. The chances we had in the second half, we had a lot of them. Their keeper played very well today and made a lot of good saves.

"We are disappointed but having been 2-0 down at half-time, if you had offered us the point then we would have taken it. But with the chances we had, we should still be a bit disappointed.

"I thought we started the first 25 minutes really well. We had possession and a few chances, but didn't convert them.

"Then they got two goals out of nothing and you go into half-time two down and disappointed. But we rallied together in the second half and did really well."

Swansea refused to alter their approach after falling behind, with passing football all they know.

Britton added: "We always pass the ball whether we are 3-0 up or 3-0 down. That's the way we play and it suits the players.

"If we start playing more direct, we haven't got the players to do it. We always keep believing in what we are doing, keeping the ball and opening up chances for ourselves."
