Swansea's 10 men defended heroically to frustrate Premier League relegation rivals Huddersfield in a goalless stalemate at the John Smith's Stadium.

Fevered expectation among the home fans following the early dismissal of Swansea forward Jordan Ayew gave way to frustration as the visitors repelled wave after wave of attacks.

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski produced a world-class save to keep out Huddersfield striker Steve Mounie's second-half volley and Tom Ince's last-minute header bounced up against a post.

Swansea, who had collected 17 points from their previous nine league games, looked well-organised and resolute.

Beaten only once now in 14 matches, they were content to let the home side have the ball and held on for the point.
