On this day: Roberto strikes in Harriers draw

22nd March 2018

Roberto Martinez scored with a fine free-kick as Swansea City claimed a point at Kidderminster Harriers on this day in 2003.

Brian Flynn's Swans side were in the midst of their scrap to avoid relegation to the Conference as they made the short trip to Aggborough.

After a five-game winless run, the Swans had triumphed at Southend to breathe life into their survival fight.

And they followed that victory with a creditable 2-2 draw at Kidderminster despite falling behind when Sam Shilton's cross went in off the far post.

Lenny Johnrose levelled when he tapped home after Martinez's long-range effort was parried by the home goalkeeper, Fraser Digby.

Adie Smith then put the hosts 2-1 up, but Martinez earned his team when he curled home only his second Swans goal.

The result was a crucial one for the Swans, who eventually avoided the drop having finished just a point above 23rd-place Exeter.
