Newcastle United 1-2 Swansea City – Premier League – 19th April 2014
If Swansea manage to avoid the drop the season they will owe their top tier survival to the goals of Wilfried Bony. The Ivorian striker’s late penalty strike was his 13th this season in the league, eight more than any other Swansea player has managed this season.
Shola Ameobi had opened the scoring with a rare goal but Bony levelled the scores on the stroke of half-time with the first of his brace. The game looked to be heading for a draw before Marvin Emnes was felled in the box by Cheik Tioté, allowing Bony to bag all three points for Garry Monk’s side.
Swansea are now healthy six points clear of danger while Alan Pardew’s struggling Magpies’ suffered their fifth defeat in a row.
