Jordan Ayew was handed a straight red card for a studs-up lunge on Jonathan Hogg, leaving Swansea a huge task to take anything from John Smith's Stadium.

Tom Ince saw a downward header come back off the post in the 90th minute, but in truth the Terriers struggled to carve out the clear-cut chance they needed to secure back-to-back home league victories. "Sometimes you need luck and that wasn't on our side today", Huddersfield manager David Wagner said.

The Swans drew 0-0 with the Terriers at John Smith's Stadium but finished the match with ten men after the Ghana global was dismissed.

"If it's a red card to one then it should be a red card to both of them".

The Ghanaian was given his marching orders by referee Michael Oliver following a horror tackle on Jonathan Hogg in the 10th minute of the game.

The tension ratcheted up a notch on the hour.

Swansea boast of 31 points from 30 games to place 14th in the English Premier League.

Fortunately for Ayew, his team-mates put in a brilliant defensive performance to seal a 0-0 draw and gain a valuable point in their battle against relegation.

- Huddersfield have failed to score in a league-high 16 Premier League games this season. "It didn't look like a red card at the first moment but when I look again what my player did was exactly the same as the Huddersfield player did".
