Bournemouth 2-2 Swansea
14th April 2007
The Swans left it late as they came back from 2 goals down to get a point at Dean Court.
Roberto Martinez made one change from the side that beat Port Vale last week as Iriekpen returned from injury to replace Kevin Austin.
Swansea City started the first half quite well as Darryl Duffy looked keen to continue his goal scoring from last weekend and he could put us 1-0 up after just 5 minutes but he shot over the bar from 12 yards out.
Willy Gueret made a good save from former England international Darren Anderton who struck a low powerful free-kick.
Duffy had another chance for the Swans but Moss made a great save to deny his long range shot on 19 minutes.
2 minutes later, Marc Wilson put the hosts in front after heading in Cummings' corner from the right.
Swansea looked to get themselves straight back in the game winning a few corners around the half hour mark but the defence cleared safely.
They dominated the late possession but failed to get a huge boost before half time with an equaliser.
There were good signs of attacking and we looked capable of getting a goal in the second half and with results going away, it was vital that we came back and got a win as Blackpool and Oldham were both currently losing.
Swansea City made a promising start to the second half as they looked to get an early goal to boost their chances of a comeback.
Darryl Duffy had a goal ruled for offside as he netted from the rebound as Trundle hit the post from a free-kick.
Anderton went close with an excellent shot from 25 yards moments later.
Martinez used up all his subs within the first 15 minutes of the second half. He made 2 changes on 52 minutes, Tate and Williams replaced O'Leary and Butler.
Bournemouth delivered a hammer blow to the Swans as McGoldrick doubled their lead after converting Hayter's cross from the right.
Martinez made his last change immediately after the goal. Richard Duffy went off to be replaced by Pawell Abbott as the Swans changed to an all-out attacking 3-4-3 formation.
Alan Tate gave us a huge boost on 83 minutes as he got us a goal back with 7 minutes remaining. The full-back shot from 25 yards following a Tom Williams corner.
When some fans thought over season was over, Trundle gives us a still a glimmer of hope with an equaliser 5 minutes later. Britton's shot was blocked by Danny Hollands, Painter headed the ball down for Abbott to shoot which the keeper only parried, and Trundle was there first to poke the ball in fron close range.
We had 6 more minutes to try and complete a superb come-back as 4 extra minutes were to be played.
The Swans had left it too late though as we had chances earlier on but when it looked like our play-off hopes were over, Tate and Trundle popped up with the vital goals as we gain 1 point on Oldham who lost 2-0 at home to Cheltenham.
Carlisle won though and they go 2 points ahead of us in 7th.
