19th August 2016
Swansea City 3-1 Hull CityLeague Two - Saturday, April 4, 2015
A Bafe Gomis brace helped the Swans secure back-to-back Premier League victories with a convincing 3-1 victory over ten-man Hull City at the Liberty.
The French striker scored two superb goals either side of half-time after Ki Sung-Yueng opened the scoring for the Swans, while Paul McShane hit home the visitors' only goal.
After a cagey opening to proceedings, Ki scored his seventh goal of the campaign, finding the net from close range after Jonjo Shelvey's initial effort was parried into the path of the South Korea captain.
Gomis then doubled Swansea's lead with a spectacular volley before McShane clawed one back for the visitors after the break.
David Meyler then received his marching orders for a dangerous challenge on Kyle Naughton, before Gomis wrapped up all three points for Garry Monk's men with a deft chip beyond Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregory after racing in on goal.
This victory in SA1 took the Swans to 46 points in the top flight, just a point away from equalling their best finish in the Premier League.

It sealed seventh place for John Hollins' side, who went on to play Scunthorpe in the play-offs, where they eventually lost 3-2 on aggregate following extra time in the second leg.
