    Swansea v Middlesboro

    The injury time penalty award against Stoke on Wednesday, which gave the Swans three points and a rare win, was memorable. Itís not often decisions have favoured us in matches with Stoke over the years so they tend to stand out. The win keeps us in touch with second place Brentford and two games in hand.
    Saturday we are at the Liberty and Middlesboro are the visitors. We lost the corresponding away fixture 2-1.
    Letís hope for a better result at home than the last time, where we were turned over by Bristol City after taking the lead. Their three goals were the result of individual errors, one by defender Guehi and two by goalkeeper Woodman.
    Middlesboro will be tough to beat, they won their last match 1-2 away to Coventry on Tuesday night (Coventry had beaten Brentford 2-0 last home match).
    Middlesboro have a good away record with four wins in the last six games, conceding only five goals.
    Conversely we have a good home record too, with four wins in the last six games, conceding five goals, which suggests it will be a tight contest.
    The match will be shown live on Sky Sports, the second of five of our matches being shown live on Sky this month.

    2-1 97’ Ayew penalty after Bidwell brought down
    Ayew brace and he’s now on 13 goals for the season.
    Late late show for the Swans but another three points.

    A lot of fuss over their “disallowed” goal. How could the ref “allow” it when he’d already blown up for a foul.
    Also an outcry for the penalty. I thought it was a clear foul and so did the ref. Warnock from 50 yards away erupted and said it wasn’t.
    Warnock should be reprimanded for his team and coaching staff surrounding the officials at the end of the match and giving them verbals. Also when interviewed afterwards he alluded to the refs favouring Swansea and Cooper because his father was a top ref. You’ve got to laugh at that. The bad loser should be fined and banned.
    People have short memories, the Swans have regularly been penalised by poor refereeing decisions over the years, we’ve just had to get on with it.
