Swansea City extend their unbeaten League run to 18 games after a 1-0 away win against Huddersfield.

It was the Swans' first win away against the Terriers in 15 years and it moves Martinez's side 14 points clear at the top of the table.

Jason Scotland added to his tally with the only goal of the game on the stroke of half time, finishing from close range after Alan Tate's flick-on.

The Swansea boss was forced into making 3 changes from the side that faced MK Dons last Monday. Garry Monk was missing with a back injury so O'Leary replaced him. Painter was also out so Austin started at left back.

In midfield, Bodde and Britton were back after missing the Johnstone's Paint Trophy game because of injuries. Scotland played up front on his own in a 4-5-1 formation.

It was end to end stuff throughout as Bodde forced the first save of the match with an excellent long range effort from a free-kick.

Robinson also had chances of his own but the goalkeeper again made saves to deny Swansea the opener.

While the teams looked like heading to the dressing rooms with the scores unchanged, Swansea City broke the deadlock from a corner. Bodde's cross wasn't cleared, it was flicked on by Tate and Scotland netted from close range.

At the start of the second half, Robinson was replaced by brandy after picking up a thigh injury.

De Vries was brought into the action, making saves to deny Williams and Brandon.

The Swans were very much under the cosh at this stage and our defence certainly had their work cut out.

We were given an advantage with 8 minutes to play though as former Wales international Rob Page picked up 2 yellow cards in a space of 6 minutes to get sent off.

This effected the Terriers and Swansea nearly doubled their lead when Butler fired the ball in as the keeper could only parry Scotland's shot. The linesman however ruled it out for offside. Our top scorer suffered a broken toe in the incident though and was stretchered off.

Huddersfield: Glennon, Sinclair, Page, Clarke, Williams, Kamara (Schofield 81), Holdsworth, Collins (Mirfin 90), Brandon, Jevons (Booth 78), Beckett. Subs Not Used: Eastwood, Skarz.

Swansea City: De Vries, Rangel, Tate, O'Leary, Austin, Butler, Bodde, Britton, Pratley, Robinson (Brandy 46), Scotland (Duffy 90). Subs Not Used: MacDonald, Way, Burgin.
