Swansea City go from strength to strength as they rise to 4th in the table after an impressive 2-0 away win against Brentford, a team who have gone unbeaten this season up until now.

Leon Knight was back in the starting line-up, replacing the injured Lee Trundle, and he punished Brentford with 2 more goals to give Swans victory.

He also scored a brace in the Play-Off semi-final against Brentford at Griffin Park in May...

Swansea made the break-through 8 minutes before the break when Knight picked up the ball just inside the penalty area thanks to a good pass from Butler, he was given enough space to place the ball well into the right haahnd bottom corner.

We continued to create chances as both Akinfenwa and Britton hit the woodwork. It was end to end stuff in the first half as both teams were creating chances. Gueret denied Kuffour early on while Knight and Akinfenwa went close.

Leon Knight proved how much he deserves a place in the starting line-up when he extended our lead 10 minutes after the restart.

He picked up the ball from a long throw by Gueret, and in plenty of space on the left hand side he made his way into the centre. He went inside of two defenders before striking an excellent shot into the roof of the net from 20 yards out.

We now seem to be picking up some much needed confidence after a slow start to the season. We now look ahead to the trip to Gillingham on Saturday and another 3 points there could take us into the automatic promotion places.

It was also good to see us keeping another clean-sheet. That's 3 in the last 4 games now and I don't think its any confidence that our defence is looking far better with the absence of Garry Monk. Some say his injury is a blessing in disguise, (so was Trundle's?) but whatever it is we finally seem to be making good progress and that should add a few thousand to our next home game, especially if we have another good result on Saturday.

Good game tonight, no complaints.....check my report on the Brentford site....Knight is so much better than Trundle...well done to Tate and Pratley too, I think with more fire-power or strength up front we might have been closer...but a good game, as I said anyway
