Swansea Win At West Brom

Swansea got their first points of the season as they beat West Brom 2-0 away from home on Sunday.

The game started at a good pace, with both teams getting early opportunities to attack, but none of the chances created were clear-cut.

Most of the first-half was a battle in the middle of the park, with West Brom edging the possession stakes.

But it was Swansea who got the breakthrough, when Ben Davies got onto the end of Pablo Hernandez's second attempt at a cross and blasted the ball into the top corner for Swansea to take a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute.

Nicholas Anelka came close to equalizing just after the half hour mark, but his shot sailed wide.

West Brom continued to dominate possession for the rest of the first-half, but with Swansea committing less players forward, the home team struggled to penetrate, and the teams went into the half-break with just the solitary goal scored.

The second-half continued in a similar pattern to the first, but despite West Brom having a lot of the ball, they weren't really threatening.

In the 70th minute Wayne Routledge was played clean through the middle, but McCauley made a last ditch tackle to stop Swansea doubling their lead.

Swansea did find their second though in the 83rd minute, as Michu had his shot blocked but managed to recover the ball and lay a simple pass to Hernandez to score with West Brom's keeper Myhill stranded.
