Sinclair on the spot

In-form winger Scott Sinclair came to Swansea's rescue with a late penalty to ensure Brendan Rodgers' npower Championship promotion-hopefuls grabbed a 1-1 draw at Barnsley.Sinclair scored twice from the spot in last weekend's thrashing of Crystal Palace and the former Chelsea man took his tally to 17 goals for the season four minutes from time after he had been brought down by Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele.Bobby Hassell had put the Tykes in front in the first half with his first goal in over a year, but the Swans rallied in the second half and were rewarded by Sinclair's fifth goal in his last four games.The point was not enough to keep them in second spot, with arch-rivals Cardiff and Norwich winning to go above them, but it did at least end their run of defeats away from the Liberty Stadium.
