Scunthorpe 2 - Swansea 2

Glanford Park



Scunthorpe 2-2 Swansea

Swansea City are still yet to record their first win of the new season as they drew 2-2 with Scunthorpe at Glanford Park.

Alan Tate returned after suspension and started in midfield in place of O'Leary, but he lasted just 16 minutes after being sent off, and he'll now be issued with yet another ban.

It looked like an uphill struggle from here but surprisingly Andy Robinson got us off to a great start on the stroke of half time, putting us 1-0 up at half time.

However, Scunthorpe soon brought the scores level 4 minutes into the second half with a penalty scored by skipper, Andy Crosby. Tommy Williams' season went from bad to worse after conceding the spot kick that lead to their equaliser.

Midway through the half and Billy Sharp put the hosts in front.

Despite conceding a penalty early in the second half, he did assist our equaliser though as he provided the cross as Fallon headed home in the 78th minute to earn us a point.

Jackett made 2 changes to Saturday's side, Tate played in midfield instead of O'Leary and Butler was dropped in favour of McLeod.

Akinfenwa was also unlucky not to get a starting place as he was joined by Trundle on the bench.

Garry Monk was stretched off after half an hour and was replaced by Kevin Austin while Trundle replaced Knight at the start of the second half.

at least its a point on the board this could have been a game without a point.
We seem to have no disclipine at home though. Yet another sending off and a penalty conceded. We're starting this season where we left off the last and I'm finding it hard to be optimistic this year but I'm not writing off our chances like some people are though!
cant believe it not again bt better dan a loss jackett sort it out should of played bayo n trunds n wat u doin playin tate in midfield

A point well deserved by by the ten who got stuck in. 2 goals given away, one a penalty given away by Williams and the other a present given by Austin who allowed Sharp to take the ball off him that should have gone behind for a goal kick.
Hope Gary Monk is OK. No chances were taken as the medical team took their time before taking him off on the stretcher.
Good prediction Kev. First point on the board. Our defence is an absolute mess tho. Lets get it sorted. And yes, lets hope Monk is ok.
I well earned point considering, now lets get three at Oldham with ELEVEN men!!!
Come on swansea, we've got to win at oldham even though its goin to be hard. maybe play knight and akinfenwa up front!
we drew both times last year with oldham so its going to be tough. We haveent got Tate for oldham or Monk, so i think we will struggle at the back. about the scunthorpe game, i think we should of won even though we had a man sent off, we still had a back 4.
wa was jackett doin leaving o'leary out..... by the sounds on it a well earned 1 point.......bu wiv tate monk nd robbo out looks luyk we gna av a lil bit of a problem......
1 point is better than none
