Report: Huddersfield 0 Swans 0

10th March 2018
First team

The Swans produced a huge performance to pick up a point at Huddersfield despite playing for more than 80 minutes with 10 men.

Carlos Carvalhal's side were forced to play the vast majority of this encounter at the John Smith's Stadium with a numerical disadvantage after Jordan Ayew was sent off in the 11th minute following a challenge on Jonathan Hogg.
The visitors were pegged back for almost the entire game and failed to register a single attempt at goal compared to Huddersfield's 28, but that mattered not as they returned to South Wales with a brave point.

Huddersfield's best chance came in added time as Tom Ince headed against the post from Florent Hadergjonaj's cross.
Earlier, Lukasz Fabianski produced a stunning save to deny Steve Mounie, with the keeper tipping a ferocious strike onto the bar and over for a corner.
It was a brave, battling performance by the Swans, who moved four points clear of the drop zone.
