BLAST FROM THE PAST: Burnley v Swans

12th August 2016

As the Swans' Premier League season kicks off on Saturday with a trip to Burnley, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you a closely-fought top-flight encounter which saw the Swans break a club record and a classic Championship clash from 2009.

Burnley 0 Swansea City 1
Premier League - Saturday, February 28, 2015
A bizarre own goal saw the Swans reach the 40-point mark in record time following a 1-0 win at Burnley.
After a first league double over Manchester United the previous week, Garry Monk's side did the same over Burnley as they reached the landmark two days quicker than they did in the 2012/13 campaign - and by a game less.
In a tense and tight affair, the difference proved to be an own goal by keeper Tom Heaton, who spilled into his own net following a deflection off Keiran Trippier after denying former Claret Jack Cork's powerful volley from close range.
Loanee Nelson Oliveira went close to adding another in injury time, but his effort bounced along the goal-line before being cleared.
Victory not only moved the Swans onto 40 points, but it also saw them move up a place into eighth after 27 games.

Scotland put the Swans in front from the penalty spot on 34 minutes after being man-handled by Michael Duff, who was given a straight red card.
