  • Late drama at the Liberty Stadium saw Djibril Cisse level for Kuban Krasnodar with virtually the last kick of the match from the penalty spot after Ibrahima Balde had been brought down by home keeper Gerhard Tremmel. It had all looked so good for the Swans when Michu gave them the lead after the break with a well-worked goal, but Cisse's strike means that qualifying could now be a little more difficult than it might have been had they been able to hang on for what would have been a third straight win in Group A.

  • GOAL! Cisses drills the ball into the bottom left corner and although Tremmel guesses right, he is unable to keep it out.

  • Tremmel escapes with a booking and will be able to face the resulting penalty.

  • One last attack from Kuban and Balde bursts into the box and gets to the ball ahead of keeper Tremmel who brings him down - penalty awarded and no real complaints!

  • We will have a minimum of two minutes added time as Rangel's shot is saved by the Kuban keeper.

  • Swansea are back in possession to the relief of their fans as the clock ticks down.

  • Swansea counter and space opens up for Michu on the edge of the box but his shot is charged down.

  • Balde gets on the end of a Fidler cross but he can't direct it on target and the Swans have a goalkick.

  • The hosts are being put on the backfoot and everyone is behind the ball as they look to hold onto their precious lead.

  • A good spell from Kuban which is adding to the tension at the Liberty Stadium.

  • Great cross from Kozlov is met by Balde who heads onto the roof of the net under pressure from Rangel.

  • But Kuban do get forward and the ball breaks to Fidler who shoots high and wide from 20 yards.

  • The hosts are now pressing high again and forcing Kuban to rush their passing.

  • Michu is caught offside as the Swans look to relieve some of the pressure.

  • The corner is cleared but the signs are there that the final 10 minutes could be quite anxious for the home side.

  • Chico does well to get in ahead of Balde after a clever pass from Cisse.

  • Swansea are looking to keep possession but Kuban are still showing plenty of energy and willingness even in the latter stages.

  • A warning for the hosts that there is still plenty of work to do before they can celebrate a third win in the group.

  • Some anxious moments at the back for the hosts with Chico doing well to head clear Kozlov's cross, before Cisse heads wide.

  • Swansea's change sees Dyer replaced by Roland Lamah.
