Swansea City 3 Leeds United 0
Npower Championship - Saturday, 26 February 2011
A Scott Sinclair double helped the Swans secure an impressive victory over Championship rivals Leeds at the Liberty Stadium.
Sinclair put the hosts ahead in the first-half when he converted a neat back-heel from Swans striker Luke Moore.
Brendan Rodgers' side had many opportunities throughout the half, including a powerful strike from Nathan Dyer - who was playing his 100th game for the club.
Leeds, who had only lost once in their previous 20 matches, had their first real chance later on in the first half when Davide Somma's fine free-kick had to be parried over the crossbar by Swansea keeper Dorus de Vries.
The home side were awarded a penalty ten minutes into the second-half following a Max Gradel foul on Nathan Dyer, which was coolly converted by Sinclair.
Mark Gower came close just before the hour mark as his curling free-kick hit the post before Luke Moore sealed the win by racing onto Stephen Dobbie's sublime reverse pass and coolly chipping the ball over the onrushing Kasper Schmeichel.
SWANS: De Vries, Williams, Taylor, Tate, Rangel, Dyer, Sinclair, Allen, Gower, Dobbie (Britton, 76), Moore (Beattie, 80).
LEEDS: Schmeichel, Bruce, Lichaj, McCartney (Parker, 73), O'Brien, Gradel, Kilkenny, Howson, Becchio (Watt, 61), Snodgrass (Paynter, 73), Somma.
