Club


Swansea City 2-0 Chesterfield
League One: Friday, March 16, 2007
The Swans moved into the League One play-offs after two goals in three minutes saw off Chesterfield at the Liberty.
Manager Roberto Martinez recorded his first home since taking over as the Swans had to dig deep to fend off relegation-threatened Chesterfield.
It took until the 75th minute for the hosts to break the deadlock, with Andy Robinson converting from the penalty spot after Pawel Abbott was fouled in the box.
Robinson then turned provider as his corner found Izzy Iriekpen, and the centre-back powered home a header just two minutes later.

Swans: Gueret, Amankwaah (Duffy, 64), Iriekpen, Lawrence, Painter, Britton, Tate, Robinson, Butler (Williams, 59), Craney, Abbott (Jones, 90).
