Luton Town 1 Swansea City 3

League One – January 12, 2008

The Swans continued their pursuit of the League One title with a convincing victory over Luton Town to stretch their unbeaten run to 12 matches.

Luton, who went into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the FA Cup, fell behind when Keith Keane turned Andy Robinson's cross into his own net after five minutes.

The Swans doubled their lead through Guillem Bauza, with the Spaniard striking after an hour.

Paul Furlong pulled one back, but Bauza turned provider as he teed up Jason Scotland to put the result beyond doubt.

Division Two - February 17, 2001

A season which ultimately ended in relegation, this eight-goal thriller is best remembered for Giovanni Savarese's hat-trick.

The Swans made a terrible start to this game, with Lee Mansell and Stuart Douglas giving them a 2-0 lead inside nine minutes.

Savarese pulled one back soon after, but Mansell netted again after the break to retain their two-goal advantage.

The Venezuelan reduced the arrears after the hour mark, but Luton were relentless in their pursuit of victory as Keith Rowland made it 4-2.

Savarese looked to have given the Swans some hope of claiming a point when he added his third with ten minutes left to play.

But Liam George scored the eighth goal of the afternoon two minutes later to seal a remarkable game.
