Late Everton goal denies Bradley 1st win with Swansea

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) " American coach Bob Bradley was denied a first win in charge of Swansea when Seamus Coleman scored an 89th-minute equalizer for Everton in a 1-1 draw in the English Premier League on Saturday.

As a result, Bradley became the first Swansea manager in the Premier League to fail to win in his first five games " taking just two points from a possible 15 " and the Welsh club dropped to last place, behind Sunderland after its 3-0 win against Hull.

Swansea hasn't won since the opening day of the season, with its long wait for three points continuing after Gylfi Sigurdsson's 41st-minute penalty was canceled out after a late defensive lapse from Jordi Amat.

Amat's weak header dropped to Coleman, who nodded a looping effort over goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

It was cruel on the visitors, who had limited Everton to few chances, but they invited more pressure as the second half wore on and their fragile confidence was eventually exposed.
