13th May 2016

This weekend sees the curtain come down on the 2015-16 season and Swansea City's fifth campaign in the Barclays Premier League.
The Swans welcome Manchester City to the Liberty Stadium as Francesco Guidolin's side aim to finish the season with a fifth straight home win.
And in this special feature, we look back at five of our most notable final-day matches in recent years...

Swansea 1-0 Liverpool
Barclays Premier League - Sunday, 13 May 2012
Danny Graham scored the 100th goal of his career to ensure that the Swans ended their Premier League debut season on a high in 11th place.
Gylfi Sigurdsson twice went close to giving the hosts the lead in the first half while, in the second, Michel Vorm did well to deny Andy Carroll's overhead kick.
However, Graham was the match-winner with four minutes remaining when he was on hand to slot home from close range, following some good work from Angel Rangel down the right flank.

Champions Swansea said farewell to League One in winning style as they beat Brighton at the Withdean.
Superb play from Shaun MacDonald found fellow substitute Febian Brandy in the box as he slotted home the winner 12 minutes from time.
Jason Scotland, Tom Butler and Paul Anderson were all denied earlier by Brighton keeper Michel Kuipers, while Dean Cox, Nicky Forster and Glenn Murray found Swans goalkeeper Dorus De Vries in fine form at the other end.

Leon Knight fired Swansea into a play-off showdown against Brentford with a hat-trick against Chesterfield.
Knight gave Swansea the perfect start after five minutes, taking Owain Tudur Jones' through-ball and rifling past goalkeeper Barry Roche.
Rory Fallon's thunderous header from a corner then doubled Swansea's lead before Knight wrapped things up with two late goals, first with a measured lob and then holding off a defender to clip his third past the despairing Roche.

The Swans booked automatic promotion to League One with victory at Bury on the last day of the season.
Adrian Forbes gave Kenny Jackett's men the lead after just 25 seconds, the midfielder sliding in to score left-footed from close range.

Thomas netted from the penalty spot after six minutes but goals from Stuart Elliott and Martin Reeves put the Tigers ahead.
Thomas scored another penalty before the break to haul the home side level and after Lenny Johnrose put the Swans in front just minutes after the break, local boy Thomas grabbed his hat-trick with a sublime chip to make it 4-2 and secure another season in the Football League.

SWANS: Cutler, Jenkins, O'Leary, Tate, Howard, Coates, Britton, Martinez, Johnrose, Nugent, Thomas.
