With the Swans heading to Hull City on Saturday, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you a memorable Division Three meeting along with a Premier League fixture.


Hull City 0 Swansea City 2
Division Three: Saturday, December 19, 1998

The Swans consolidated their position in mid table with a comfortable victory over Hull at Boothferry Park.
In testing conditions, the visitors broke the deadlock ten minutes before half-time when Ritchie Appleby struck a fine shot past Andy Oakes.
And it got better for the Swans just five minutes later as Steve Watkin doubled the lead.
Despite a second-half rally from the home side, Swansea held firm to claim all three points to remain 11th in the Third Division table.
Hull, meanwhile, slipped to the bottom of the Football League with 15 points from 22 games played.
The Swans would gone on to finish seventh in the table and claim a place in the end of season play-offs.
However, John Hollins' side were defeated by Scunthorpe in the semi-finals but would go on to lift the Third Division title the following season.

Hull City 0 Swansea City 1
Premier League: Saturday, December 20, 2014

The Swans secured their second away win of the season thanks to Ki Sung-Yueng's goal at the KC Stadium.
In a game of few chances, Jonjo Shelvey's shot cannoned off the South Korean and rolled into the net past Allan McGregor.
The home side failed to really test Lukasz Fabianski, and the visitors could have won by a greater margin.
Shelvey struck a post in the first half, while Bafetimbi Gomis saw a second-half effort also come back off the woodwork.
