MODEST hero Phil Senior played down his key role in Town's stunning comeback at Swansea and insisted: "The point was down to self-belief throughout the team."
Last night's 2-2 draw, clinched with goals by Martin McIntosh and David Graham in the last 20 minutes after Chris Brandon had missed a 48th-minute penalty, put Peter Jackson's promotion-chasing side second in League I before today's games.
Boss Jacko singled Senior out for special praise after the showdown at the impressive new Liberty Stadium, watched by 13,110 and shown live on Sky, saying: "Some of his saves were outstanding."
But the home-grown keeper, who is currently preferred to Paul Rachubka, simply quipped: "After a couple of games with not much to do, it was nice to be involved!"
Senior, left exposed as Lee Trundle (19 minutes) and Leon Britton (44) put Town's Welsh promotion rivals in the driving seat, admitted: "Trundle's goal took a big deflection and they got a lucky bounce for the second, but our first-half defending was sloppy.
"But we had a talk at half-time and sorted a few things out, and our self-belief is such that we never give up on a game.
"We came back from two down to beat Oldham last month and we could have won last night as well, although I suppose we should be satisfied with a point given the half-time score."
"We were a lot better in the second half, and full credit to the lads for battling away to force the draw."
Town, who maintained a two-point advantage over fourth-placed Swansea, had to bring midfielder Michael Collins off at half-time because of an ankle injury, having started with the side which drubbed MK Dons 5-0.
Andy Holdsworth came on as part of a double change, with Danny Schofield replacing Gary Taylor-Fletcher.
John McAliskey made a 76th-minute appearance as a replacement for skipper Jon Worthington, who was the sole Town player booked (for a 12th-minute foul on Andy Robinson).
Referee Mark Halsey chose to book rather than send off Swansea goalkeeper Willie Gueret after his trip on David Graham led to the penalty.
Town now prepare for the home derby with Doncaster a week today, and Senior added: "If we can do what we did in the second half at Swansea, we have nothing to fear."
