BLAST FROM THE PAST: Swans v Tottenham
13th December 2014
Swansea City 1 Tottenham 1
Premier League - Saturday, 31 January 2011
Scott SInclair struck late on to earn Swansea City a deserved point against Spurs at the Liberty.
Just as it looked as though the home side would drop to within four points of the relegation zone, Sinclair capitalised on a defensive error to hand Brendan Rodgers' team a share of the spoils.
The Swans started well as Nathan Dyer's curling shot was tipped away by Brad Friedel, while Spurs looked a threat at the other end with Gareth Bale marauding down the left and Luka Modric finding pockets of space in the midfield.
And it was the visitors who broke the deadlock just before the break as Benoit Assou-Ekotto's pull back somehow found its way to Rafael Van der Vaart inside the box and he volleyed in his eighth goal of the season via a deflection.
It could have been two shortly after the interval as Younes Kaboul's shot was saved by the legs of Michel Vorm.
But the Swans responded well and pegged their opponents back for long spells as they sniffed an equaliser.
Joe Allen had a shot hacked off the line by Modric, while Stephen Dobbie's goal-bound effort was somehow blocked.
But it was left to Sinclair to be the hero once more as Angel Rangel's cross from the right wasn't dealt with by Friedel and the former Chelsea man slotted home to earn the hosts a point.
SWANS: Vorm, Richards (Rangel, 46), Monk, Williams, Taylor, Allen, Gower (Agustien, 62), Dyer, Sinclair, Dobbie, Moore (Graham, 68).
TOTTENHAM: Friedel, Bale, Kaboul, Gallas, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Parker (Livermore, 71), Van der Vaart (Defoe, 70), Modric, Sandro, Adebayor.
