Swans 2-1 Wigan
Premier League - Saturday, October 20, 2012
Pablo Hernandez scored his first Swansea City goal as the Swans edged past Wigan in a tense encounter at the Liberty.
The Spanish winger broke the deadlock after 65 minutes as a flurry of three goals arrived in the space of four minutes. Hernandez did well to turn in the box before drilling into the bottom corner to open his account following his £5.55million move from Valencia.
Fellow countryman Michu, starting up front, headed in two minutes later from a Jonathan de Guzman corner.
But the drama didn't end there as Wigan struck back within two minutes as defender Emmerson Boyce flicked James McCarthy's effort past Michel Vorm.
Arouna Kone then headed home two minutes later, but he was pulled back for offside.
It set up a tense finale, but despite sub Danny Graham missed the opportunity to settle the encounter when he was in on goal, the Swans held on to claim their third win of the season.

West Brom 0-1 Swans
Championship - Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Craig Beattie returned to haunt former club West Brom as the Swans shocked the Championship leaders at the Hawthorns.
The striker got onto the end of Mark Gower's pass before letting rip with a left-footed that beat Baggies keeper Scott Carson in the 50th minute.
Nathan Dyer, Ashley Williams and Tom Butler all went close for Paulo Sousa's side, who stretched their unbeaten run to seven matches.
