Brighton 0 - Swansea City 1

Withdean Stadium

3rd May

Attendance:

Brighton 0-1 Swansea

Swansea City players and staff have finally gotten their hands onto the league one trophy this afternoon after a 1-0 win against Brighton.

Leeds United this week unsuccessful appealed to get a 15 point penalty overturned and in a stroke ratified Swansea as leauge one champions for the 2007/08 season.

Swansea manager Roberto Martinez was forced to make a change after Leon Britton failed a late fitness test on a ankle injury. Darren Pratley was restored in the centre of midfield after serving a one match ban.

Jason Scotland had the first real chance to open the scoring but his shot went wide of Kuipers post. Veteran striker Nicky Forster had the chance to put the gulls into a 1-0 lead after winger Dean Cox put a cross into the danger area but the former Hull City man could not direct it goal wards

Owain Tudur Jones had a chance break the deadlock after latching onto a Paul Anderson corner but the Welshman could only watch as defender Andrew Whing blocked his shot.

It would be subsitute Fabien Brandy who would open the scoring after Shaun McDonald beat his marker to find Brandy in the area who made no mistake to bury the ball past Kuipers.

It would be the Manchester United youngsters goal which would sign off the Season in style for Roberto Martinez's men.
