PAST MEETINGS: Swans v Bournemouth

30th December 2016

With the Swans hosting Bournemouth at the Liberty on New Year's Eve, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
Here, we bring you some classic meetings from our time in Division Three, League One and the Premier League.

Swansea 4-2 Bournemouth
League One - Friday, 3 November 2006
Swansea nearly let slip a three-goal lead against Bournemouth but held on for victory at the Liberty.
The home side were cruising when Rory Fallon added two quick goals - pouncing in the six-yard box then heading home - to add to Izzy Iriekpen's early strike.
However, Danny Hollands' left-footer and Brett Pitman's scrambled second brought the Cherries close, but Swansea nerves held as Lee Trundle swivelled to fire home.

SWANS: Gueret, Tate, Iriekpen, Lawrence, Williams, Britton, Pratley (Amankwaah, 82), Tudur Jones (MacDonald, 52), Robinson (Austin, 90), Trundle, Fallon.
BOURNEMOUTH: Stewart, Young, Purches, Maher, Bertrand, Cork, Songo'o (Hollands, 68), Anderton, Foley, Fletcher, Hayter (Pitman, 82).

Swansea 1-0 Bournemouth
League One - Friday, 3 February 2006
Swansea ended a five-match run without a win at the expense of Bournemouth at the Liberty Stadium.
Andy Robinson claimed the crucial goal just before the break, the midfielder seizing on a poor clearance to drill the ball in off the far post.
The Cherries offered only a sporadic threat, although James Hayter had a good appeal for a penalty turned down.

SWANS: Gueret, Ricketts, Williams, Monk, Iriekpen, Tate, Martinez, McLeod (Forbes, 45), Robinson (MacDonald, 71), Knight, Fallon (Akinfenwa, 77).
BOURNEMOUTH: Stewart, Howe, Tindall, Young, Hart, Browning, Cooper, Rix (Rowe, 86), Purches, Hayter, Rodrigues (Pitman, 40) (Coutts, 80).

Swansea 2-0 Bournemouth
Division Three - Saturday, 24 August 2002
Swansea got off to a perfect start as Jamie Wood capitalised on a defensive blunder to put them ahead after just 15 seconds in their victory over Bournemouth.
Goalkeeper Chris Tardif and defender Jason Tindall failed to cope with a hopeful punt upfield, and Wood nipped in to steer the ball into an empty net.
Cherries striker James Hayter hit the woodwork with a stinging volley just after the restart which would have levelled matters.
Bournemouth's afternoon took another turn for the worse with the sending off of Neil Young, before the home side sealed victory with a late Andrew Mumford header.

SWANS: Freestone, Theobald, Sharp, Evans, Jenkins, Howard, Mumford (Moss, 87), Reid, Phillips, Thomas (Williams, 62), Wood (Keaveny, 85).
BOURNEMOUTH: Tardif, Young, Tindall, Purches, Broadhurst, O'Connor (Stock, 65), Elliott, Fletcher, Browning, Hayter, Feeney (Connell, 42).

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth
Premier League - Saturday, November 21, 2015
The Swans came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in the Premier League.
In a frenetic first half at the Liberty Stadium, the visitors took a two-goal lead through goals from Joshua King and Dan Gosling, before Andre Ayew and Jonjo Shelvey rescued a point for the Swans.
King tapped home the opener inside ten minutes when Junior Stanislas laid the ball on a plate for the striker, before Gosling doubled the Cherries' advantage with a rifled effort into the roof of the net.
But the Swans responded on 28 minutes when Ayew skilfully pulled one back for the Swans with a backheel effort, while Jonjo Shelvey hauled Garry Monk's side level from the penalty spot six minutes before the interval.
