With the season over, we take a month-by-month look back at the 2018-19 campaign for Swansea City. Here, we reflect on February.
Bristol City 2 Swansea City 0
February 2, 2019 - Championship
The Swans' unbeaten run came to an end as second-half goals from Andreas Weimann and Callum O’Dowda condemned the visitors to defeat at Ashton Gate.
The Swans had their chances in the West Country, particularly during the first half where Frank Fielding was the busier keeper.
But the game swung in the hosts favour when Weimann capitalised on Swansea’s loss of possession to head home just 41 seconds into the second half.
George Byers hit the post for Swansea as they chased an equaliser but O’Dowda steered home the clincher to make sure the visitors' sequence without a loss ended at seven games.
Swansea City 1 Millwall 0
February 9, 2019 - Championship
George Byers scored his first senior goal as the Swans claimed a league double over Millwall at the Liberty.
Graham Potter’s side bounced back from the defeat at Bristol City by earning their 12th victory of the season thanks to Byers’ strike.
The 22-year-old fired home into the top corner from inside the box at the second attempt in the 43rd minute.
It proved the difference in a game where the Swans were comfortably on top in the first half but then had to hold off a determined Millwall effort after the break.
Victory moved the Swans onto 44 points from 31 games and up to 11th.
Leeds United 2 Swansea City 1
February 13, 2019 - Championship
Swansea City's long wait for a win at Elland Road continued as Oli McBurnie's late penalty was not enough to rescue a point against Leeds.
The hosts had surged into a 2-0 lead. Swedish defender Pontus Jansson swept home the opener in the 20th minute after a deflected shot fell his way in the area, before Jack Harrison's glancing header flew past Erwin Mulder to double their advantage after 34 moments.
The Swans had encouraging passages of play but rarely tested home keeper Kiko Casilla until the closing stages.
McBurnie scored from the spot after Luke Ayling had fouled sub Joel Asoro to give them hope, but it was not enough and 1949 remains the last time the Swans beat Leeds in Yorkshire.
Swansea City 4 Brentford 1
February 17, 2019 - FA Cup (fifth round)
Sensational solo goals from Daniel James and Bersant Celina capped off a rousing second-half comeback against Brentford as the Swans booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
The hosts had trailed to Ollie Watkins' 28th-minute strike, but they looked a side with far more intent after the break with three goals in an 18-minute spell.
Celina saw his 20-yard free-kick strike the post and then bounce off the back of keeper Luke Daniels and into the net.
James then raced 80 yards to score a stunning individual effort before the Bees were reduced to 10 men after Ezri Konsa hauled down the Wales winger when he latched onto a loose ball and was heading for goal.
It got even better for the hosts as Celina used his trickery to beat two men inside the box before slotting into the far corner.
Connor Roberts thought he had added a fourth after tapping in Celina's parried effort, only for the linesman to raise his flag during the celebrations.
But that mattered little, though, as George Byers added a fourth in the final minute from 20 yards as the Swans booked their place in back-to-back FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 92 years.
Sheffield Wednesday 3 Swansea City 1
February 23, 2019 - Championship
The Swans suffered a miserable afternoon at Hillsborough as they succumbed to a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.
The visitors found themselves 3-0 down at the break as Adam Reach (2) and Steven Fletcher hammered home the Owls’ dominance.
The Swans improved in the latter stages of the second half as Oli McBurnie pulled a goal back, but it was a first-half performance they will want to forget.
