  1. That's it - a dramatic finish here as Kuban deny Swansea again.

  2. GOAL - IBRAHIMA BALDE - History repeats itself as the sub Balde finishes brilliantly over Vorm after great ball through from Popov.

  3. Four-minutes added time

  4. 88

    Routledge again gets free in the box, and crosses, but Kozlov manages to clear.

  5. 86

    Sub Fidler goes for goal but is way off target.

  6. 84

    Great run from Routledge as he breaks into the box, he looks for Vazquez as the back post but it is just too high for the Spaniard.

  7. 83

    Swansea enjoying possession now, trying to subdue any late Kuban hopes.

  8. Finally Fidler is on the pitch for Tlisov.

  9. 77

    Bugaev feeds Popov with a short free-kick but his cross into the box is poor and it is out for a goal-kick.

  10. Xandao has picked up a second-yellow card which means he is sent-off. Looks a tough call as Vazquez went over.

  11. Balde is on to replace Melgarejo.

  12. 73

    Strong play from Cisse as he gets free in the box but he fires just wide - unlucky from the Frenchman.

  13. 72

    Good defending from Amat to clear as Popov drove a cross into the six-yard box.

  14. Bony makes way for Vazquez

  15. 69

    Kabore looks to play in Melgarejo, he flicks it on for Cisse but Vorm is off his line well to claim it.

  16. 65

    Ignatev is on for Khubulov. The previous change of Fidler for Tlisov did not happen due to issues on the sidelines.

  17. 65

    First run for Routledge and he goes for goal from the edge of the box, but it deflects wide for a corner. Williams meets De Guzman's corner, but it is over the bar.

  18. 64

    Bugaev gets cross into the box, Canas clears - but only as far as Kabore - he goes for goal but sends it well wide.

  19. 63

    Cisse turns on the edge of the area and goes for goal, but he sends it wide - he isn't happy as he wanted a corner.

  20. Dyer and Lamah are replaced by Rangel and Routledge.

  21. 58

    Popov goes for speculative volley from the edge of the box but he only sends it straight to Vorm.

  22. 58

    Cisse latches on to nice ball and fires past Vorm but flag is up quickly for offside.

  23. 57

    Good defending from Bugaev to see the ball out as Dyer was looking to go clear.

  24. Tiendalli goes into the book for foul on Melgarejo.

  25. 55

    End to end stuff now and Khubulov goes for goal, but Vorm takes it comfortably.

  26. 55

    Swansea counter and Lamah looks to play in Bony, and he does, but the flag is up for offside.

  27. 54

    Very good chance for Cisse. Popov gets a great ball in from the right and it drops to Cisse on the edge of the six-yard box but he misses the ball and the chance is gone.

  28. 53

    More neat football from Swansea, as Dyer looks to exchange passes with Pozuelo, but the winger is eased of the ball and it is out for a goal-kick.

  29. 51

    Good play from De Guzman as he looks to play one-two with Bony, but Dealbert is across to clear into touch.

  30. 49

    Bony runs at goal, but he is seemingly blocked off by Dealbert - but nothing is given.

  31. 47

    Cisse has first shot of the second-half but that effort is blocked on the edge of the box.

  32. KICK-OFF

    Neither side has made a change at the break as Swansea kick-off.

  33. Whistle goes for half-time and Swansea lead the way.

  34. 43

    Lamah and Pozuelo combine on the edge of the box, it comes for Bony - but Dealbert manages to hack it clear.

  35. 41

    Cisse does well to hold up the ball, he squares it for Khubulov - but he fires well over the bar.

  36. 41

    Lovely run from Dyer dancing his way through the middle past Kabore, he goes for goal but it is straight at Belenov.

  37. 37

    Tiendalli does well to get cross into the box, it comes for Pozuelo and he tries to tee-up Dyer but the pass is just too short and Kuban clear through Bugaev.

  38. 36

    A slip from De Guzman almost lets Kuban in, Popov latches onto the ball but he sends his shot wide.

  39. 32

    Good run from Davies as he beats Kozlov but Xandao makes the block.

  40. 30

    Good work from Khubulov as he cuts the ball back to the edge of the box for Popov, but he fires high and wide - should have done better.

  41. 28

    Nice play from Swansea as the counter quickly, it comes for Dyer who tries to curl one from the edge of the box and Belenov has to push it wide.

  42. 27

    Khubulov volleys one from the edge of the box but it is straight at Vorm. Decent build-up from the home side.

  43. 26

    Handball given against Pozuelo and Kuban will put this into the box, but it is dealt with well by Swansea's defence.

  44. 23

    Bugaev cuts in from the left and goes for goal but he sends it wide of the post.

    Lamah does well in the corner and gets a good ball into the box but Dealbert heads clear.

  49. 14

    Kuban win a corner takes by Melgarejo and Xandao meets it, but it is straight at Vorm.

  50. 12

    Cisse breaks down the right and manages to get a cross into the box, but Vorm again comes well to claim it.

  51. 11

    Great flick from Dyer sets Pozuelo away, he looks for run of Lamah but a nice challenge from Xandao denies him.

  52. 9

    GOAL - WILFRIED BONY - Great work from Lamah, he dances into the box and pulls it back, and Bony slams the ball home as he manages to get the ball from out of his feet.

  53. 6

    Good break form Popov, but Vorm comes and takes it well and looks to make a counter attack.

  54. 4

    Kuban now on the break and Cisse is through past Williams but he shoots straight at Vorm.

  55. 3

    Pozuelo and Canas both try their luck but they fail to trouble the keeper, good start from Swansea.
