Three goals in five minutes saw Swansea City come from behind to beat West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns Stadium.

In a dramatic few moments on a snowy afternoon in the midlands goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Danny Graham sealed the three points for Swansea City after West Bromwich Albion had gone ahead through Marc Antoine Fortune.

Ashley Williams escaped a convincing penalty appeal from the home side after he appeared to handle in the area under pressure from Gareth McAuley seventeen minutes into an otherwise quiet first half.

The match sparked into life on 54 minutes as a Baggies corner fell kindly for Fortune who controlled in the box before lashing home from close range.

Swansea trailed for less than a minute though. Neil Taylor played in Sigurdsson who capped a flowing move as he opened his body up and stroked the ball beyond Ben Foster.

Four minutes later Danny Graham netted what turned out to be the decisive goal as he met Sigurdsson's near post cross and turned the ball in from four yards.

Nathan Dyer was denied by a superb covering tackle from Jonas Olsson in the later stages of the game before West Brom went close to a dramatic equaliser but Peter Odemwingie flashed wide in the dying seconds.

The three points send Swansea into the top half of the Premier League while West Brom slip to fifteenth, just six points above the relegation zone.
