Following two consecutive defeats, Swansea City bounced back with a hard-earned win against Blackburn Rovers, for their first win at Ewood Park in 52 years!
Liam Cullen scored a fantastic goal around the 30-minute mark, putting Swansea in the lead after Jamal Lowe had two goals disallowed for being offside.
Blackburn, who had been on a three game winning streak, threatened several times during the second half but the Swans defence and goalkeeper Carl Rushworth in particular stood firm, to secure the Swans first victory at Blackburn since 1971.
It was also the Swans their third consecutive away victory in the Championship.
