Swansea book their place in play off final

17 May 2011 12:00
Swansea 3 - 1 Forest. A late rally led by Robert Earnshaw wasn't enough as Swansea head to Wembley. Another dramatic play off semi final that tore at every sinew even for the neutrals. Forest had penalty appeals turned down, hit the woodwork then conceded two goals in 5 minutes to go in at half time two down. As Swansea looked to hold onto their lead Forest came more into the game and hit the woodwork again before Robert Earnshaw came on with 12 mins to go and immediately pulled one back. Earnie then hit the post, saw a shot blocked that could have been handball as Forest looked for the leveller. But into injury time and Forest keeper Lee Camp came up for a corner. Swansea cleared and Darren Pratley ran the ball to the halfway line before firing into the empty net from 50 yards. A stunning conclusion to a night of high drama. I'm drained and my team didn't even play. Cardiff know that victory over Reading tonight will mean a Wembley final against Swansea. First though the Bluebirds must perform and see off Reading. And that won't be easy. Expect drama, tension and moments when you are plain terrified.
