Swansea ended a run of four Championship games without a win after Joel Piroe’s first-half strike earned a 1-0 triumph over Huddersfield.

The 22-year-old struck to give the Welsh side their first home victory of the season.

It was a fourth clean sheet in five games at home for Russell Martin’s men, who crucially found a breakthrough after failing to score in their previous two home matches.

Despite the defeat, Huddersfield remain in seventh place, just three points off the playoff places.

Swansea were out to break a run of three consecutive Championship draws after they snatched a point any Luton with a dramatic three-goal comeback in their last league outing.

Head coach Russell Martin was forced into a defensive change after both Rhys Williams and Ryan Bennett picked up knocks.

Olivier Ntcham returned to an attacking midfield role in place of Liam Walsh and Piroe replaced the injured Michael Obafemi up front.

Swansea had dominated their last home game against Hull but were left frustrated by the Tigers’ stubborn defence, but this time they found the early breakthrough after 17 minutes.

Piroe had only scored five goals in his previous 30 senior games before his move to South Wales, but he looked determined to add to his tally.
