First team

As the Swans get set to face Stoke at the bet365 Stadium on Tuesday (8pm), we look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

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

 

Stoke 2 Swans 2

Premier League – April 2, 2016

Swansea City last claimed a positive result at Stoke courtesy of a rousing fightback in April 2016.

The Swans were edging towards Premier League survival under boss Francesco Guidolin and had beaten Aston Villa in their previous game.

Mark Hughes's Stoke, meantime, were in the top half of the table as the clock ticked down towards the end of the season.

The Potters looked like claiming all three points after goals either side of half-time from Ibrahim Afellay and Bojan.

But the Swans refused to let heads drop and grabbed a lifeline when Gylfi Sigurdsson shot on the turn with 22 minutes remaining.

And they claimed a point thanks to Alberto Paloschi's deflected effort 11 minutes from time. 

 

Stoke 1 Swans 1

Premier League – February 12, 2014

Relegation rivals Stoke and Swansea both moved another point away from the drop zone courtesy of a 1-1 at what was then the 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 high winds.

The home side led at half-time when Peter Crouch found the target after Peter Odemwingie hit the woodwork.

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

 

Stoke 1 Swans 2

Division Two – March 7, 2001

John Hollins' Swans ended a painful run of five straight losses with a shock victory at Stoke which ended the home side's chances of automatic promotion to the First Division.

The Swans, who were second-from-bottom in the table, took a deserved two-goal lead inside 31 minutes thanks to strikes from Jason Price and Kristian O’Leary.

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

Despite this shock win, the Swans at the end of the 2000-01 season and were relegated to the Third Division.
