On This Day: Blues Promoted To Championship At Swansea

29 April 2019

Coca Cola League One, Liberty Stadium, Saturday 29th April 2006, Swansea City 2-2 Southend United...

It was party time in Wales as Southend fought back twice to come from behind against Swansea to draw 2-2 and secure Championship promotion at the Liberty Stadium. 

A Freddy Eastwood brace cancelled out two goals from Swansea's Rory Fallon to register a priceless promotion point as competitors Brentford were held by Hartlepool. 

The result meant that Blues had secured back-to-back promotions after League Two play-off success in the previous season. 

Take a look through the gallery from the game above.
