Season summary[edit]

Swansea finished the season as champions of League One, ten points ahead of runners-up Nottingham Forest. Swansea had flirted with the top six for the first third of the season, before a run of six straight wins lifted them to first place, which they did not relinquish for the rest of the season. This winning sequence was the start of eighteen straight matches without defeat.[1] The club also enjoyed good form in the Football League Trophy, reaching the Southern finals before being knocked out by Milton Keynes Dons in a penalty shootout.
