As the Swans get set to face Stoke at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday, we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

Here, we recall past meetings from the Premier League, Division Two and Division One.

 

Stoke 1 Swans 1

Premier League – Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Relegation rivals Stoke and Swansea both moved another point away from the drop zone courtesy of a 1-1 draw at a windy Britannia Stadium in Garry Monk’s second match as Swans boss.

Kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes and at one stage there was doubt whether the match would go ahead due to the weather.

Stoke led at half-time when Peter Crouch fired home after a Peter Odemwingie effort hit the woodwork.

The Swans salvaged a point in the second half when Chico Flores headed home a Pablo Hernandez cross.

Swansea finished in 12th position at the end of the 2013-14 season on 42 points.

Swans: Michel Vorm, Angel Rangel, Ben Davies, Ashley Williams, Chico Flores, Jose Canas, Nathan Dyer (Marvin Emnes 82), Leon Britton (Jordi Amat 90), Wilfried Bony, Pablo Hernandez (Jonathan de Guzman 75), Wayne Routledge.

Subs not used: Gerhard Tremmel, Neil Taylor, Alvaro Vazquez, David Ngog.

Division Two – Wednesday, March 7, 2001

Swansea, who were second-from-bottom, took a deserved two-goal lead inside 31 minutes with goals from Jason Price and Kristian O’Leary.

Stoke scored pulled one back in the 81st minute through James O’Connor, but the Swans managed to hold on to secure the three points.

Stoke 1 Swans 2

The Swans moved to the top of the First Division with a 2-1 win over the Potters at the Victoria Ground.

John Toshack’s became the first Welsh side to lead the top flight in 57 years, and capped a remarkable rise having been 90th in the Football League laddeer just six years earlier.

Stanley later supplied the free-kick for Bob Latchford to score the winner and secure the three points for Toshack’s Swans.

Swans: Dai Davies, Neil Robinson, Jimmy Habziabdic, Ante Rajkovic, Colin Irwin, John Mahoney, Alan Curtis, Robbie James, Leighton James (Gary Stanley 58), Max Thompson, Bob Latchford.
