Sheffield Wednesday Andre Ayew goal

There was more late drama involving Swansea City at Sheffield Wednesday. Here we crunch the numbers following a nerve-shredding finish at Hillsborough.

1 – The frantic ending in South Yorkshire means the Swans have just one win from their last 15 visits to Hillsborough. That victory coming in 2009.

1 – Matt Grimes claimed his first Championship assist of the season, having previously been the second-tier player with the highest number of chances created without seeing one converted.

6 – Andre Ayew’s first-half goal was his sixth of the season and moves him level with Borja Baston as Swansea City’s topscorer for the season.

6 – The Swans are six points better off than they were at the same stage last season.

10 – Swansea City are unbeaten in 10 away league games, their best run since a 12-match sequence without defeat during the 2007-08 League One title campaign under Roberto Martinez.

11 – The goals from Morgan Fox and Ben Wilmot mean there have now been 11 scored in the 80th minute of later in the Swans' 19 games in all competitions this season.

32 – Fox’s goal was just his second for Sheffield Wednesday, and his first since netting in a 5-1 win over Norwich in March 2017, ending a 32-month gap without a goal.

75 – Connor Roberts made his 75th first-team appearance for Swansea City. The Wales international made his debut in the goalless draw at Wolves in the FA Cup in January 2018.
