Swansea City 2-0 Leicester City

Swansea moved up to third in the npower Championship with a narrow 2-0 victory over Leicester which left Sven-Goran Eriksson tasting defeat for the first time since taking charge.

On-loan Middlesbrough man Marvin Emnes was the match-winner with his first goal for the Swans, in his first game and with virtually his first touch.

The Dutch debutant was a half-time introduction at the Liberty Stadium and wasted no time showing his power and pace as he shrugged off the attentions of Curtis Davies to latch onto Darren Pratley's throughball and fire past Chris Weale.

In-form Swans winger Scott Sinclair made the points safe in the 94th minute with his 10th of the season from Emnes' cross, having seen an earlier effort rebound out off the underside of the crossbar.

All that came after a competitive first half which lacked any real quality.
