Season summary[edit]

After narrowly avoiding relegation from the Football League on the final day of the previous season, Kenny Jackett's Swansea improved dramatically on last term's 21st place finish with 10th place, although they were still 12 points adrift of 9th-placed Oxford United. Their cup form improved too, beating Premiership hopefuls Preston North End in the fourth round of the FA Cup before being knocked out by Tranmere Rovers.

Striker Lee Trundle, signed from Welsh rivals Wrexham, finished 7th highest scorer (joint with Lincoln City's Gary Fletcher) in the division with 17 goals.
