Swansea City 3-0 Blackburn Rovers
Swansea go past the 40-point barrier thanks to a dominant win over a poor Blackburn side at the Liberty Stadium.
There was only ever really one team in this game but within the first quarter both sides could have had penalties. The referee waved away calls from Yakubu and Gylfi Sigurdsson before Swansea took control. Blackburn stood off the Swans and allowed them freedom to execute their flowing, passing brand of football and Brendan Rodger's side went ahead of 35 minutes. It was Sigurdsson who struck, he was given far too much time and space and punished Blackburn bending a lovely curled effort from the angle of the area into the net. Paul Robinson then had to be smart to block a Danny Graham effort but on 42 minutes Swansea doubled their lead. A defensive howler from Scott Dann saw the ball eventually land to Nathan Dyer and the winger sliced the ball in for 2-0. The Welsh side then ended the match as a contest on 62 minutes when Scott Sinclair was given the freedom of South Wales to get to the by-line, with Sigurdsson getting on the end of his cut-back for his second of the game. For the last hour half it was attacking practice for Swansea and only David Dunn, who did hit the post with a good effort, really showed any heart for Steve Kean's side. Good chances were spurned by Sinclair and Graham, with Robinson also pulling off several top saves. But Blackburn were dominated throughout and it's worrying times for Rovers fans, however for Swansea they reached 42 points and virtually confirmed themselves a second season in the Premier League.
