Swansea 3-2 Leeds
Ferrie Bodde (on floor) is sent off at the Liberty Stadium
The top-of-the-table clash was never less than riveting
Ten-man Swansea held on to defeat Leeds in a breathless top-of-the-table clash.

Andy Robinson's curling free kick gave the Swans the lead, Jermaine Beckford equalising superbly a minute later after Dennis Lawrence's indecision.

Garry Monk's strong near-post header from a corner restored the advantage, but Ferrie Bodde was red-carded for a rash tackle on Jonathan Howson.

Jason Scotland made it 3-1 at half-time after a bullocking run, Alan Thompson's free kick after the break not enough.

But they could be facing an extended period without Bodde, the midfielder now having been sent off twice since his summer arrival from the Netherlands.
