Swansea City Championship Form
Last Time Out In The Championship
Swansea City were back to winning ways at the University of Bolton Stadium, thanks to Barry McKay’s early goal. After early Swans pressure, a corner was cleared to the corner of box, with McKay waiting to power home a shot into the far top corner. Swansea were mostly dominant but still had to keep the home side at bay during the first half. Sammy Ameobi came closest for Bolton, but returning goalkeeper Erwin Mulder tipped his long-range shot over the bar. Bolton continued to press in the second half, but a Mike van Der Hoorn inspired defence was more than enough to nullify any Bolton attacks. Swansea City now sit 8th in the table on 26 points, 2 points outside the play-off places.
