Stoke 2-2 Swansea
Premier League, Saturday, April 2016
Swansea City roared back from 2-0 down to earn a point in a thrilling encounter at the Britannia Stadium.
Stoke went ahead as Ibrahim Afellay headed home in the first half, while the impressive Bojan made it two just eight minutes into the second half.
But the game turned on its head in the space of 12 minutes as Gylfi Sigurdsson halved the deficit with a fine finish before substitute Alberto Paloschi grabbed a deserved equaliser.
Both sides could have won it in a frantic finale, but it finished all square as Swansea moved ten points clear of the bottom three with six matches to play.

Stoke 2-1 Swansea
Premier League - Sunday, October 2014
Substitute Jonathan Walters struck the winner as Stoke came from behind to defeat Swansea and claim just their second home league win this season.
The visitors, dominant in the first half, went ahead through a Wilfried Bony penalty after Ryan Shawcross was penalised for a foul on the Ivorian striker.
Stoke levelled through a Charlie Adam penalty before the break, however, as Angel Rangel was harshly judged to have fouled Victor Moses.
But in the second half, Walters' impact was immediate as he headed home Oussama Assaidi's cross to give the home side all three points.

Stoke 1-1 Swansea
Premier League - Wednesday, 12 February 2014
Relegation rivals Stoke and Swansea each moved another point away from the relegation zone after playing out a draw at a windy Britannia Stadium.
The game was in doubt at one stage because of the weather, and kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes.
Stoke led at the break when Peter Crouch fired home after Peter Odemwingie had hit the base of a post.
But the Swans saved a point in the second half as Chico Flores headed in Pablo Hernandez's cross.
STOKE: Begovic, Cameron, Pieters, Whelan (Guidetti, 68), Shawcross, Wilson, Odemwingie, Adam, Crouch, Walters (Nzonzi, 56), Arnautovic (Assaidi, 56).

Stoke 1-2 Swansea
Division Two - Wednesday, 7 March 2001
Swansea ended a run of five successive defeats with victory at Stoke - which dented the Potters' chances of automatic promotion.
The expectant home crowd was silenced as the second-from-bottom visitors took a deserved two-goal lead inside 31 minutes.
Jason Price capitalised on a mistake by Wayne Thomas to hit the net - then Kristian O'Leary bagged the second when he picked his spot from 18 yards following a Nicolas Fabiano corner.
Stoke huffed and puffed after the break but it was nine minutes from time before they could pull a goal back through James O'Connor, but the brave Swans held on.
STOKE: Kristinsson, Thomas, Gunnarsson, Kippe (Thordarson, 41), Hansson (Risom, 79), Dorigo, Gudjonsson, Kavanagh, O'Connor, Thorne, Dadason.
SWANS: Freestone, Price, Howard, Smith (Romo, 55), Bound, Cusack, O'Leary, Lacey, Verschave, Watkin (Jenkins, 76), Fabiano.
