Fabio Borini bagged a brace on his debut as Swansea edged past Nottingham Forest 3-2 to record their first victory in four games and leave their promotion rivals winless in seven attempts.
The on-loan Chelsea striker, who arrived earlier this week on a deal until the end of the season, coolly opened his Swans account from close range shortly after the impressive Scott Sinclair had registered his 17th league goal of the season with a sublime virtuoso effort in the 21st minute.
City were firmly in command and Italy Under-21 international Borini smashed against a post, before Kris Boyd - making his first Forest start - gave the visitors hope with a neat finish on the stroke of half-time.
But it did not last long as man-of-the-match Borini capped a debut to remember with a simple second just before the hour mark.
Paul Anderson added an unjust slant on the scoreline in injury time, before then heading against the woodwork as Forest came close to snatching a undeserved point.
