  2. 'We were worthy winners'

    Steve Cooper
    Quote Message: It's a win and a performance for the football club, we're very much together here. So we should all be very proud of what we've achieved. I know it's only one game but it's a really important game as we know we were representing the city and the community. from Steve Cooper Swansea City manager

  3. Post update

    Some fine individual performances in the Swansea ranks today. The likes of Wilmot, Grimes, Byers, Routledge and Ayew all made fine contributions. Mendez-Laing was a threat for Cardiff before the break but faded.

  4. Post update

    Swansea players and staff soak it in at the end. There is a prolonged huddle on the pitch before celebrations with the fans. Cooper is punching the air and tapping his heart in front of the East Stand.

    Quote Message: In no way shape or form did Cardiff City deserve to get anything out of this game. Swansea City were by far the better team for me. The Swansea staff and players are all together in a big huddle, that's what it means to them, I didn't see that from Cardiff today. Swansea wanted it more.

    Quote Message: I don't think either side played particularly well. Cardiff are bereft of any creativity, it must be a nightmare to be a front player for them at the moment. Swansea just about deserved it.

    Quote Message: The celebrations start for the Swansea fans while the Cardiff away end is in stunned silence. Over the course of the game you have to say Swansea probably did edge it, they had numerous chances to finish it off but they only needed one in the end.

    Quote Message: That is it. Debry delight for Swansea City. The debutant Ben Wilmot wins it. It's home, sweet home for Steve Cooper as Cardiff City's travel sickness gets a whole lot worse.
  9. And the bragging rights go to Swansea

    Ben Wilmot's header proves the difference between the two sides at the Liberty.

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    Into the last few seconds now.

    Ian Walsh

    Former Swansea and Wales striker on BBC Radio Wales

    Quote Message: Now we're talking drama... Swansea have had so many chances to finish this game off.
  13. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    Another chance for Swansea to finish this contest goes begging as Celina races into the box but sees his effort blocked.

  14. Post update

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    The Bluebirds think they should have a corner as Van der Hoorn rises with Flint, but the referee says goal-kick.

  15. Cooper rallies the crowd

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    Steve Cooper pumps his fist in an attempt to get the home crowd going as this game heads into five minutes of added time.

  16. Ayew wastes a chance

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    With Cardiff throwing men forward, Swansea have a chance to finish the game as Ayew breaks forward but his shot is well blocked.

    He might have been better off looking to pass.

    BBC Wales Football Correspondent

    Quote Message: Other than five minutes in the middle of the second half Cardiff haven't really threatened that much. It's symptomatic of their season frankly. But Swansea have been back on it today after struggling at home.
  18. Worth a try

    Swansea 1-0 Cardiff

    For the second time in the game, Cardiff keeper Etheridge is caught out of position after clearing the ball.

    Routledge tries the spectacular from 50 yards but launches his first-time shot into the crowd.
