Boro’s Quality Shines Through

But having defended well and limited the visitors to few clear cut chances, Boro’s quality shone through as Aaron Ramsey and Cameron Archer struck in quick succession, with Chuba Akpom adding a late penalty as Swansea’s woeful run of results continued, despite a largely spirited display.


Boro Impresses Early On

Boro wasted no time in showing why they are the division’s form team as they controlled possession early on, with Swansea’s January transfer target Archer curling wide after four minutes following a direct run upfield by Ramsey.


Swans Show Confidence

The Swans were playing with plenty of confidence in possession while they showed energy and desire to press and defend whenever Michael Carrick’s outfit got into dangerous positions.

Boro Turns The Table

But the four minutes that followed dramatically altered the course of the match. Swansea failed to replicate their creativity from the earlier set-piece and were hit on the counter attack as McGree set Ramsey free, and after evading the attention of Grimes and Matty Sorinola, the attacker lashed in off the post.

Swansea Shot Themselves In The Foot

Swansea shot themselves in the foot 13 minutes from time as Latibeaudiere clumsily challenged McGree in his own box, and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

Spirited Display By Swansea

Akpom sent Fisher the wrong way to cap off another fine away win for Boro as Swansea’s winless run was stretched to five matches ahead of fixtures against Millwall and Bristol City before the international break. Despite the disappointing loss, Swansea’s spirited display is worth noting.
