On this day: Trundle scores a classic

18th November 2018

Lee Trundle scored one of his greatest Swansea City goals on this day in 2005.

The Liberty Stadium was packed with a then-record crowd of 19,288 fans for a Friday night League One fixture against Yeovil Town.

Both sides were flying high at the top-end of the third tier, but it was the Swans who triumphed thanks to a Trundle brace.

The talismanic striker’s first came from the penalty spot after defender Efe Sodje brought him down in the area.

The Glovers were reduced to 10 men in the second half as midfielder Lee Johnson was shown a second yellow card after gesturing to the referee having been booked.

The Jack Army were then treated to an iconic goal as Trundle expertly brought the ball down on his chest and unleashed a dipping volley over the Yeovil goalkeeper from 40 yards out.
