15th November 2017
First team

As the Swans get set to face Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend, we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

Here, we recall past meetings from the Premier League, the Championship and the old Division Two.

 

Burnley 0 Swans 1

Premier League – Saturday, February 28, 2015

An own goal from Burnley keeper Tom Heaton handed Garry Monk’s side a 1-0 victory at Turf Moor to take the Swans to the 40-point mark in the Premier League.

The goal came in the 64th minute, when Burnley keeper Heaton failed to keep out Kieran Trippier’s attempted clearance after Jack Cork hit the woodwork.

The victory saw the Swans move up to eighth position in the Premier League table. The Swans finished the 2014-15 season in eighth, their highest ever finish in the Premier League.

Swans: Lukasz Fabianski, Kyle Naughton, Federico Fernandez, Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor, Ki Sung-Yueng, Jack Cork, Jonjo Shelvey, Tom Carroll (Jefferson Montero 61), Bafetimbi Gomis (Nelson Oliveira 90 +2), Wayne Routledge (Jordi Amat 90).

Unused subs: Gerhard Tremmel, Angel Rangel, Leon Britton, Marvin Emnes.

Burnley 0 Swans 2

Championship – Saturday, January 10, 2009

A Jason Scotland brace secured three points for the Swans at Turf Moor and ended a remarkable run of eight successive draws for Roberto Martinez’s team.

The Swans were awarded a penalty shortly after the half-hour mark after Scotland was brought down in the box by Burnley’s Michael Duff, and the spot-kick was converted by the Trinidad & Tobago striker.

Scotland scored his second of the match, and his 11th of the season, with just four minutes remaining when he converted Mark Gower’s pass from close range.

Swans: Dorus de Vries, Angel Rangel, Ashley Williams, Garry Monk, Alan Tate, Leon Britton, Jordi Gomez (Gorka Pintado 87), Darren Pratley, Mark Gower, Jason Scotland, Joe Allen (Nathan Dyer 64).

Unused subs: Dimitrios Konstantopoulos, Thomas Butler, Albert Serran.

Burnley 1 Swans 2

Division Two – Saturday, December 17, 1932

Goals from Ron Williams and Tudor Martin proved the difference for the Swans as they won 2-1 at Turf Moor.

Williams netted Swansea’s first goal – his sixth of the 1932-33 season – whilst former Blackpool striker Tommy Jones scored for Burnley.

Swansea’s second scorer, Tudor Martin, had signed for the club from Wolverhampton Wanderers for £750 in July 1932, and made an instant impact.

Martin ended the 1932-33 season as top scorer with 19 goals in all competitions.

The Swans finished the campaign in 10th position in Division Two, their best finish for five years.

Swans: Alex Ferguson, Syd Lawrence, Wilfred Milne, Joe Sykes, Harry Hanford, Jim Miller, Hugh Blair, Ron Williams, Tudor Martin, Harry Scott, Tommy Olsen.
