ASHLEY Williams believes Swansea City deserved to win by more than just a single goal at Newcastle.
Michael Laudrup's side triumphed 2-1 at St James' Park as goals from Michu and Jonathan de Guzman earned them a second away Premier League victory of the campaign.
But Swansea had missed other chances before their Spanish top scorer found the net.
Nathan Dyer, Itay Shechter and Pablo Hernandez all might have made more of promising first-half opportunities.
Williams admitted he feared Swansea might live to regret not punishing their opponents.
In the end they got the three points they deserved as de Guzman doubled Swansea's advantage before Demba Ba grabbed an injury-time consolation for the Magpies.
The win leaves Swansea tenth in the table, seven points above the bottom three.
"I don't think it would have been out of order to say we could have scored four because we had that many one-on-ones," said Williams.
"Sometimes it can happen that you have chances, don't take them and then the other team go and score and punish you, so we were conscious of needing to be even more alert.
"It's frustrating when you're at the back watching it as much as fans are, but it happens and the main thing is we got the win we deserved."
