Swansea City played with 10 men for 79 minutes but still collected another point for Carlos Carvalhal in a scoreless draw with sputtering Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

Swans sit 14th with 31 points, while Town is 16th with the same total but eight goals worse differential.

Jordan Ayew went studs-up into Jonathan Hogg to give the hosts a man advantage after barely more than 10 minutes, and Town dominated the proceedings over 45 minutes but failed to find a goal.

The pressure kept coming, but Carlos Carvalhal’s Swans stayed tight. Huddersfield registered chance after chance, but couldn’t press their collective foot down on the long neck of the Swans.

Lukasz Fabianski could only watch as Tom Ince headed off the bar at the edge of stoppage time, perhaps Town’s best opportunity to capitalize on its advantage over 80 minutes.
