  4. How it stands at the bottom

    FT: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Bottom six

    It wasn't a great day for the teams down at the wrong end of the table, with Millwall the only team in the bottom six to pick up a point...

    ... And only a late Jordan Hugill equaliser denied the Lions an even better result against Middlesbrough.

  5. The best of the rest

    FT: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Next six

    And here's what the win has done for the Swans, who climb to ninth.

  6. McBurnie hails manager's changes

    Reaction: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Swansea's match-winner Oli McBurnie tells Sky Sports:

    "The gaffer made some changes at half-time and it's paid off.

    "It's good to be back in the team and the three points is massive."

  7. How it stands at the top

    FT: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Top six

    The result leaves Sheffield United four points behind leaders Leeds and three points behind second-placed Norwich City.

    It's a good weekend for the Canaries, with both of their closest promotion rivals losing.

  8. 'We were the better team' - Fer

    Reaction: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    In-form Swansea midfielder Leroy Fer tells Sky Sports:

    "Over the whole game, we were the better team.

    "They're a good side and they're up there so it was a hard game, but we fully deserved it."

  9. Post update

    FT: Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    So Swansea are only six points off the play-off places and seven points below fourth - things are looking up for the Welsh side.

    They're unbeaten in five games in all competitions.

    For Sheffield United, it's a frustrating night.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Swansea v Sheff Utd

    It's all over - Swansea have picked up a big, big win! They go ninth, moving above six teams in the process.

    Sheffield United stay third and miss the chance to go back in to second. They were disappointing in the second half.

  11. Ouch!

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Swansea keeper Erwin Mulder gets out bravely to claim the ball before the on-rushing Billy Sharp, who just accidentally catches him, as they both went for the ball.

    It looks like Mulder is OK though.

  12. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Play pauses to allow Swansea's Matt Grimes to receive some treatment... As the clock continues to tick away for the visitors...

    Sheff Utd are throwing men forward now, as we enter four minutes of stoppage time.

  15. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Time is running out for the visitors now. They're struggling to get substitute Leon Clarke in the game.

  16. CLOSE!

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    Swansea's Connor Roberts gives the home fans a nervy moment, as he turns a cross behind for a corner but - in doing so - diverts the ball a lot closer to the far post that he might have liked...

  17. 'We could have won'

    Reaction: Stoke 2-1 Leeds

    After an eventful seven days, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa insisted not being able to watch Stoke train beforehand had no bearing on the outcome of today's 2-1 defeat by Stoke.

    “We can’t say we ignored the features of the opponent, we just didn’t take advantage of the possibilities we had," said the Argentine.

    "It was a game that we could have won. We were calm and were not afraid of the offensive aspects of the opponent. But we didn’t have a solution.”

  18. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    The Blades make their final change, as David McGoldrick is replaced by Leon Clarke up front.

    And Swansea's third change sees Nathan Dyer come off to warm applause from the appreciative home fans, while Jay Fulton comes on.

  19. Dyer delivers

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    BBC Sport Wales at the Liberty Stadium

    Swansea v Sheff Utd

    There was little sign of a breakthrough at either end at the Liberty Stadium until a sharp bit of play by Nathan Dyer.

    The experienced winger could not get a kick for much of this season, but he is enjoying himself having been recalled by Graham Potter last month.

    He brought the ball down neatly on the edge of the area before exchanging passes with Mike van der Hoorn and then rolling in the precise cross which Oli McBurnie steered home.

    That is goal number 11 of the season for Swansea’s leading scorer.

  20. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Sheff Utd

    If it stays like this, Sheffield United will slip three points adrift of second-placed Norwich City., while Swansea would fly up to ninth - leapfrogging no less than six teams!
