Swansea City 2-1 Oldham
League One: Saturday, February 2, 2008
Super sub Febian Brandy came off the bench to score a late winner as the Swans maintained a ten-point lead at the top of League One thanks to a 2-1 victory over Oldham.
Roberto Martinez's side made it 13 league games unbeaten with this win, which was aided by a 67th minute own goal by Gary McDonald.
Wales international Craig Davies levelled nine minutes later from the spot after he was brought down by Ferrie Bodde.
But Brandy's introduction with seven minutes left worked wonders for the Swans, with the on-loan Manchester United striker netting his second for the club in the 85th minute.
The season would end on a successful note for the Swans, who went on to lift the League One title.

Swans: Dorus de Vries, Angel Rangel, Garry Monk (capt), Dennis Lawrence, Marcos Painter, Ferrie Bodde, Leon Britton, Andy Robinson, Tom Butler, Joe Allen (Guillem Bauza, 56), Jason Scotland (Febian Brandy, 83)

West Brom 1-1 Swansea City
Premier League: Tuesday, February 2, 2016
A late Salomon Rondon equaliser ensured the Swans were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion.
Rondon's close-range finish in injury time earned the hosts a share of the spoils after Gylfi Sigurdsson had opened the scoring for the visitors in the second half.
After a goalless first half, Sigurdsson gave the Swans a deserved lead in the 65th minute with a calm finish past Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster.
January arrival Alberto Paloschi went close to capping off an impressive debut with a goal late on, only to see his six-yard effort cannon back off the post.
For the visitors, the hammer blow moment came in the 90th minute when Rondon equalised for the hosts, firing home from close range following a goalmouth scramble.
The point meant the Swans dropped one place to 16th position in the Barclays Premier League - five points above the relegation zone.
