It's all over, the spoils are shared.

A touch of pinball in the Swansea area, ending with Dan Gosling hooking  his shot over the bar.

YELLOW CARD

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Gylfi Sigurdsson clearly pulls back Harry Arter, then it all gets a bit heated between the two sides. Jonjo Shelvey is also booked for a strong challenge in the follow-up that irked the away side.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Josh King is replaced by Glenn Murray, delaying a Swansea corner just a touch.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

This is better from Swansea, with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafetimbi Gomis combining to allow Jonjo Shelvey a shot that the England midfielder fires over the bar.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Jefferson Montero is making a difference down the left wing, stabbing in a low cross that Adam Federici has to powerfully punch away.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Matt Ritchie is off for Bournemouth, Adam Smith is on. Eddie Howe shoring up the defence in search of a much-needed point?

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Jefferson Montero tries to outfox Matt Ritchie with a step-over on the touchline. Embarrassingly, he tries one too many and the ball rolls over the line and out. Not one for the end-of-season DVD extras.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

A rare concerted attack wins Swansea a corner - their first since the break. However Shelvey's delivery is too high for Williams allowing the Cherries defence to get the ball away.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Dafydd Pritchard

BBC Sport Wales at the Liberty Stadium

"Two of last season's leading stars, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jefferson Montero, are on. How manager Garry Monk must be praying they can rediscover their old lustre."

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

But Bournemouth are not giving the hosts any respite, with Cook shooting over from just outside the box. 

They then win a corner, but Ritchie's effort is cleared by Fabianski.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Eder is off, and Gomis is on to a warm ovation. Will Swansea capitalize on their three fresh pairs of legs?

YELLOW CARD

Ashley Williams blocks and brings down Kyle Bartley to earn a yellow card. Bafetimbi Gomis is getting ready to come on for the hosts.

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea bring off Wayne Routledge and Leon Britton, bringing on Jefferson Montero and Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Swansea finally get a shot in on goal, but Ayew's stabbed attempt takes a deflection and rolls slowly to Federici.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Ki chips forward towards Jonjo Shelvey, but the attempt is a touch heavy and Adam Federici collects. Swansea are still yet to threaten since the break.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Neat passing and moving from Bournemouth in the Swansea half nearly tees up Dan Gosling, but a Swansea foot gets in the way to ease the pressure. There's no let-up from the visitors at the moment.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth have a spell of pressure but cannot make it count. Swansea have yet to really give the away defence much to think about in this half.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Close! Bournemouth's corner is flicked back across his own goal by Eder. It lands with Steve Cook drilling a shot through a crowd and past the far post - it only needed a slight touch from somewhere.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Subs from both sides are warming up, and the game could do with an injection of urgency from somewhere.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Fabianski comes out of his box to get to a long through-ball, calmly passing it past a red and black shirt to his skipper Williams.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Patient build-up from Bournemouth, then Matt Ritchie tries to make it to a short pass from Stanislas but he slides out of play over the by-line in vain - helped by a greasy surface that is only getting wetter as the rain pours down.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

It's been a quiet start to the half, broken by a long-range shot from Harry Arter that lacks venom. Lucasz Fabianski is right behind it to make a simple save.

YELLOW CARD

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Clumsy fouls by Eder and Routledge on either flank give Bournemouth free kicks, but Junior Stanislas is booked for flying in and catching Ayew late.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

It's fairly quiet off the pitch, a touch of tension is in the air as is more than a touch of rain. Neither side have threatened the other penalty area so far this half.

KICK-OFF

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

The effects of that controversial penalty linger on with referee Andre Marriner booed by a section of the home support.

But we're under way, and Ashley Williams is still out there.

Cheeky...

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Backheeled goals are always filed under 'cheeky' or 'sublime', it seems, and Andre Ayew's effort is no different.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Swansea's Wayne Routledge has struggled to make an impact down the right flank (see the left of the graphic), but by comparison Bournemouth's Matt Ritchie (right) is much more involved.

HALF-TIME

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Gripping stuff as we get to the break. Home captain Ashley Williams looks like he might be struggling, we'll see if he emerges for the second 45 minutes.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

A poor clearance from Fabianski gives the visitors a slight opening, but after winning a corner a rattled-looking home defence get the ball away.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth playing keep-ball as the half winds down, after losing a two-goal lead they look content to get inside to regroup.

There will be three minutes of injury time.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

It's poor from Matt Ritchie, he drills it low to the edge of the box but Andre Ayew clears with some ease.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

That's 18 goals conceded on the road by the Cherries so far this season. But they win their first corner of the match to ask a question late in the half.

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Danny Mills

Former England defender on Final Score

"It was definitely a penalty. He clips the players leg. It's accidental but it doesn't matter, it's still a foul."

GOAL

Swansea 2-2 Bournemouth

Jonjo Shelvey drills it to the left of Federici and equalises!

But the goal is mired in controversy - Bournemouth players are convinced Ayew tripped over his own feet and not those of Simon Francis, and replays suggest they might have a case.

PENALTY

Andre Ayew hits the deck, Andre Marriner points to the spot!
