Manager Brendan Rodgers admits Swansea will have learnt a harsh lesson after missing out on their first away win of the season at Wolves.

Swansea were leading 2-0 with six minutes remaining before late goals from Kevin Doyle and Jamie O' Hara rescued Mick McCarthy's side.

Rodgers praised his side's performance at Molineux, but felt frustrated they could not hold onto their 2-0 lead.

"It's a tough school. It felt like a defeat," said Rodgers.

"We dominated and controlled the game with and without ball, so to lose the lead in the last 10 minutes was obviously difficult.

"But it's our first away point and the performance was fantastic. A point away from home in the Premier League is actually a good point.

"It's only disappointing when you play like we did today and you end up with only one point. But we'll keep moving forward."

Having lost their previous four away matches in Premier League, Swansea were aiming for their first points on the road.

And having outclassed Wolves they were leading 2-0 with six minutes remaining thanks to first half goals from Danny Graham and Joe Allen.

Draw feels like a loss - Rodgers

But after Wolves' fightback Rodgers said: "To come off the back of four losses away from home and then produce a performance like that was terrific.

"We just needed to manage the game better and our job is to make sure the two points we dropped today don't cost us at the end of the season.

"But we want to focus on a fantastic overall performance. We had never been in that position before, of being two goals up away from home in the Premier League.

"But I think what you're seeing from this group of players of mine [is] they're going to be a match for a lot of teams in this league.

"My job was to make sure we put out a team that's going to be competitive and that we can do ourselves proud.

"But we need to learn quickly and move on to the next game."
