SWANSEA, Wales (AP) - American coach Bob Bradley awaits his first win in charge of Swansea following its 0-0 draw against Watford in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Like in the 3-2 loss at Arsenal last week, Swansea produced an encouraging display under Bradley and kept a first clean sheet since the opening day of the season.

There was also plenty of attacking intent at Liberty Stadium, with playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson curling a shot against the post in the 83rd minute as Swansea dominated the closing stages.

“The second half was strong,” Bradley said. “There are a lot of positives.

“There is disappointment, for sure, but a shared feeling of an all-round good effort.”

Watford held firm, with center back Younes Kaboul a standout, and has lost just once in the last six games.

Swansea stayed next-to-last in the standings, on five points from nine games.

There was a minute’s silence before kickoff to mark the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster, when a mountain of coal sludge collapsed onto a village in Wales, killing 144 people - most of them children - in one of the country’s worst mining disasters.
