Past meetings: Sheffield Wednesday v Swans

14th February 2018
First team

​​​​​​​As the Swans get set to face Sheffield Wednesday in the Emirates FA Cup this weekend, we look back at some previous games between the clubs.

Here we look back at fixtures in the Championship and the old Second Division.

 

Sheffield Wednesday 0 Swans 2

Championship – December 19, 2009

The Swans' most recent visit to Sheffield Wednesday came in the second tier eight years ago.

Swans boss Paulo Sousa led his team at Hillsborough, while struggling Wednesday were without a manager having sacked Brian Laws just before this game.

And the visitors soon took control, with Darren Pratley latching on to Gorka Pintado’s lay-off to put them in front after just five minutes.

Pratley then sealed the Swans’ first ever victory on Wednesday’s patch when he met Nathan Dyer’s cross early in the second half.

The win put the Swans fifth in the Championship table, but they would miss out on the play-offs at the end of the season.

Championship – March 21, 2009

Swansea were enjoying an impressive first season as a Championship club when they went to South Yorkshire in March 2009.

And they came away from Hillsborough with a creditable point.

Roberto Martinez’s team had lost their previous two games, so were content enough with this stalemate.

Jordi Gomez came closest to finding a winner for the visitors, while Dorus de Vries denied Owls striker Marcus Tudgay.

The result meant the Swans were eighth in the second tier, and they would narrowly miss out on the top six at the end of the season.

Division Two – September 17, 1955

The Swans were applauded by the Wednesday fans for their stylish forward play in a game they were unfortunate not to win.

Two great names from the club’s history, Ivor Allchurch and Terry Medwin, were on target at Hillsborough.

But the visitors were denied victory thanks to a disputed home goal.

The Swans were in contention for promotion for much of the season, but a late drop in form meant they ended up 10th.
