BLAST FROM THE PAST: Stoke v Swans
17th October 2014
Stoke City 1 Swansea City 2 - Britannia Stadium - March 7, 2001
Swansea ended a run of five successive defeats with a shock victory at Stoke - which virtually closed the door on the Potters' chances of automatic promotion.
The expectant home crowd was silenced as the visitors took a deserved two-goal lead inside half an hour.
Jason Price capitalised on a mistake by Wayne Thomas to fire Swansea ahead - 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, Gunnarsson, Kippe (Thordarson, 41), Thomas, Hansson (Risom, 79), Dorigo, Kavanagh, Gudjonsson, O'Connor, Dadson, Thorne.
SWANS: Freestone, O'Leary, Smith (Romo, 55), Bound, Howard, Fabiano, Cusack, Lacey, Price, Watkin (Jenkins, 76), Verschave.
