BLAST FROM THE PAST - Hull
4th April 2014
As part of our new content on Twitter and the club website, today we bring you the latest edition of our weekly 'blast from the past' feature.
Every Friday, we will provide supporters the opportunity to reminisce over a classic match between the Swans and an upcoming opponent.
This weekend Garry Monk's side travel to the KC Stadium to take on Hull City in the Barclays Premier League, hoping to build on last weekend's 3-0 victory over Norwich.
And when it comes to classic past meetings between these two sides, could there be any other than the famous 4-2 win in 2003, which preserved the Swans' Football League status?
Swansea City Vs Hull City - Vetch Field - May 3, 2003
James Thomas scored a priceless hattrick as Swansea defeated Hull 4-2 to preserve their league status.
Thomas drilled home a sixth-minute penalty before the Tigers hit back to take a 2-1 lead, courtesy of two defensive errors, which led to goals from Stuart Elliot and Martin Reeves.
But Thomas was back on the scoresheet one minute before the midway point to level for the Swans.
The second-half began in sensational fashion as Lenny Johnrose fired home through a crowded goalmouth to restore the hosts' lead.
And local boy Thomas sealed the much-needed victory in the 57th minute when he cleverly lobbed the goalkeeper to complete a deserved hattrick.
With so much at stake for the Swans, the hosts did brilliantly to overcome their nerves and deliver the goods.
The victory meant that Swansea could then look forward to another season in the Football League.
