First team

The Swans scored twice in the space of four minutes as they came from behind to snatch a 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Brendan Rodgers’ men earned just a second away win of the season in the Premier League to move back into the top 10.

The hosts enjoyed the better chances during an uneventful first half.

They saw a penalty appeal waved away by referee Jon Moss after Gareth McAuley’s header appeared to strike the arm of Ashley Williams.

Meanwhile, Peter Odemwingie’s shot was cleared off the line by Gylfi Sigurdsson and the follow-up effort by Marc Antoine Fortune was also blocked.

However, there was no denying Fortune as the game burst into life early in the second half, with the Frenchman firing past Michel Vorm after Jonas Olsson flicked on Graeme Dorrans’ corner.

But the Swans responded within 37 seconds of the restart, when Sigurdsson slotted home his first goal for the club from Neil Taylor’s low cross.

Sigurdsson then turned provider for what proved to be the winner in the 59th minute, as his whipped-in cross was steered into the top corner by Danny Graham.
