Result: Swansea City held to a draw after last-minute penalty

Swansea City concede a 93rd-minute penalty to end 1-1 at home to Kuban Krasnodar in the Europa League.

Djibril Cisse scored a 93rd-minute penalty to snatch a 1-1 draw for Kuban Krasnodar against Swansea City tonight.

Michu had given the Swans the lead in a difficult Europa League tie before the final-minute spot kick.

After a bright start from the visitors Swansea created their first real chance on 21 minutes, but Jonjo Shelvey sliced wide after good work from Michu and Wilfried Bony.

Dwight Tiendalli was then shown a yellow card after pulling back Lorenzo Melgarejo, despite the fact that the Paraguayan was clean through on goal.

The visiting bench were outraged as the teams went in goalless at half time.

Swansea continued to find it difficult in the second half until the 69th minute, when Michu gave them the lead. The Spanish international slid in ahead of the goalkeeper to turn the ball in after Alejandro Pozuelo's chipped pass.

Substitute Alvaro Vazquez then failed to test the goalkeeper after a run from Nathan Dyer, before a risky challenge from Angel Rangel could have resulted in a Krasnodar penalty.

The visitors were awarded a spot kick in the final minute when Gerhard Tremmel brought down Ibrahima Balde. Former Liverpool man Cisse stepped up and made no mistake to earn his side a point.
