Danny Graham scores against former club Swansea City to give Hull City a 1-0 lead at half time of their match at the Liberty Stadium.

Danny Graham scored the only goal of the first half against his former club to give Hull City a 1-0 lead at the halfway stage of their match against Swansea City this evening.

Graham found the net for the first time in 30 matches after just nine minutes when Ashley Williams gave the ball away in his own half, allowing Ahmed El Mohamady to race down the right and clip a cross to the back post for the 28-year-old to tuck away.

Swansea almost found the equaliser in the 26th minute as Jonjo Shelvey and Michu combined to set up Ben Davies, but the left-back lashed his shot over the bar from just inside the box.

The hosts had another chance with just over five minutes of the half left when Dwight Tiendalli found Jonathan de Guzman on the edge of the box, but the Dutchman fired his effort a long way over the bar.

Hull held out for the remainder of the half to take the slender lead into the break.
