PAST MEETINGS: Middlesbrough v Swans

16th December

With the Swans heading to The Riverside to face Middlesbrough on Saturday, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you some classic encounters in the Championship.

Middlesbrough 3-4 Swansea City
Championship: Saturday, February 12, 2011
The Swans sealed a memorable fightback at Middlesbrough after Craig Beattie struck a last-gasp winner.
Brendan Rodgers' side had trailed 3-1 at one stage, but their never-say-die attitude came to fruition at the Riverside Stadium.
A familiar face opened the scoring as Marvin Emnes put the hosts ahead from inside the area after eight minutes, but Nathan Dyer levelled soon after as he tapped home Luke Moore's cross.
Middlesbrough seemed to be heading for victory when Jonathan Grounds and Leroy Lita scored either side of half-time, but the Swans comeback was about to get underway.
First, Scott Sinclair cut the deficit from the penalty spot after Julio Arca fouled Joe Allen, and then Ashley Williams tapped home the equaliser after Angel Range's shot rebounded into his path.
And a remarkable comeback was completed in injury time as Beattie struck a fine left-footed effort from 20 yards to earn the Swans all three points.

Swans: D de Vries, A Tate, A Williams, A Rangel, L Britton (S Dobbie, 57), D Pratley (J Allen, 57), M Gower, S Sinclair, N Dyer, A Richards, L Moore (C Beattie, 76).
Subs not used: Y Makabu-Makalambay, C van der Gun, K Agustien, A Serran.

Middlesbrough 1-1 Swansea City
Championship: Saturday, January 23, 2010
The Swans were forced to share the spoils at Middlesbrough despite Gorka Pintado giving them the lead.
After Leroy Lita had spurned two good chances for the hosts, it was the Swans who broke the deadlock two minutes after the break as Pintado fired in Joe Allen's cutback.
It was the Spaniard's second goal in as many games for the Swans following a ten-month drought, but it wasn't enough for Paulo Sousa's side.
A fortuitous goal saw the hosts draw level as Willo Flood's attempted cross sailed over Dorus de Vries and into the top corner.
The Swans survived a late effort from Chris Killen, but he headed over from 12 yards.

Swans: D de Vries, A Tate, A Williams, G Monk, F Bessone, L Britton, D Pratley, D Cotterill, N Dyer (T Butler, 68), J Allen (M Gower, 87), G Pintado (C Beattie, 70).
Subs not used: D Cornell, A Orlandi, L Trundle, A Rangel.
