Duffy Wins It For Swansea

Darryl Duffy scored a hugely important goal for the Swans deep into injury time to win the game 2-1 away at Carlisle.

With 4 minutes of added time, Swansea looked to be going home with just a point but the on-loan striker grabbed the vital goal as we remain on the same points with Oldham.

Trundle scored the fastest goal in English football today with a striker within the first minute to give us the lead.

Martinez's side kept up the momentum as they dominated the opening 45 minutes. Leon Britton went close as his shot hit the side netting while the strike partnership of Duffy and Trundle were causing continuous problems.

The Swans had 2 or 3 golden opportunities to take a healthy lead going in at the break but they didn't take them. We were punished for this as Carlisle came out and scored just 2 minutes after the restart. A big mix up at the back was at fault for the goal as Smith equalised for the hosts.

The match looked to be heading for a 1-1 draw but Darryl Duffy hot a hugely important and controversial late winner. The home fans thought there'd been a handball prior to the goal as their fans and players protested afterwards.

The final whistle was blown and was closely followed by trouble from the home supporters as some invaded the pitch and police had to escort the players off the pitch.
