Past meetings | Huddersfield Town v Swansea City

25th November 2019
First team

As Swansea City prepare to take on Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium, we take a closer look at some memorable trips to West Yorkshire.

We recall games in the Premier League, League One and the old Second Division.

Huddersfield Town 0 Swansea City 0

Premier League – March 10, 2018

The Swans produced a huge performance to pick up a point at Huddersfield despite playing for more than 80 minutes with 10 men.

Carlos Carvalhal's side were forced to play the vast majority of this encounter at the John Smith's Stadium with a numerical disadvantage after Jordan Ayew was sent off in the 11th minute following a challenge on Jonathan Hogg.

The visitors were pegged back for almost the entire game and failed to register a single attempt at goal compared to Huddersfield's 28, but that mattered not as they returned to South Wales with a brave point.

Huddersfield's best chance came in added time as Tom Ince headed against the post from Florent Hadergjonaj's cross.

Earlier, Lukasz Fabianski produced a stunning save to deny Steve Mounie, with the keeper tipping a ferocious strike onto the bar and over for a corner.

Huddersfield Town 0 Swansea City 1

League One – March 1, 2008

Swansea City retained their lead at the top of League One as Jason Scotland grabbed the only goal of the game on St David's Day.

Roberto Martinez’s side prevailed in a tense encounter as prolific striker Scotland pounced to prod home Alan Tate’s flick-on from a corner just before half-time.

However, it was not a victory claimed without adversity as the Swans lost Andy Robinson and Scotland himself to injury.

But the visitors held out, helped by a late red card for Terriers defender Robert Page.

Division Two – September 19, 1992

A strong second-half performance saw Swansea City claim all three points against struggling Huddersfield at Leeds Road.

The visitors had to weather a considerable storm of Huddersfield pressure during the opening half, with Roger Freestone making some key saves.

But the Swans were much improved after the break with Colin West giving them the lead just after the hour mark, before Andy Legg doubled their advantage.

The hosts pulled a goal back through Wales striker Iwan Roberts, but the Swans took the spoils.

Division Two – January 12, 1991

Swansea City claimed their first-ever away win at Huddersfield on an eventful afternoon at Leeds Road.

Frank Burrows' visitors took a bizarre 10th minute lead as Huddersfield defender Graham Mitchell somehow managed to turn a long throw from Andy Legg into his own net.

But, having received a belated Christmas present, the Swans soon handed out one of their own as Phil Stant picked off a Paul Raynor backpass to level the scores.

However, David D’Auria – who had yet to lose in a Swansea shirt – popped up with his sixth goal of the season to give Swansea an away win over the Terriers after 38 years of trying.
