Swansea capped a pulsating game with an equalizer two minutes into injury time at Queen's Park Rangers for a 1-1 result in the English Premier League on Thursday.

Wilfried Bony, introduced by Swansea with 20 minutes to go, blasted past goalkeeper Rob Green to break QPR hearts.

Swansea had been threatening. A Bony free kick forced a fine save from Green, who then blocked Ki Sung-yeung. That rebound was cleared off the line. With four minutes to go,

Swansea was reduced to 10 men when Wayne Routledge was sent off for an altercation with Karl Henry. But Green was finally beaten by Bony, for his ninth goal of the season.

Swansea remain ninth, while QPR, two points off the drop zone, still hasn't lost at home since mid-October.

QPR was fortunate not to lose Green early for handling outside his area, as he stopped a surge by Routledge.

Soon after, the hosts led as Leroy Fer collected the ball from 25 yards out and powered it in.
