Swansea City AFC have qualified for the spring phase of a UEFA club competition for the first time despite falling to defeat against FC St Gallen in Switzerland.

Michael Laudrup's side controlled the first half but failed to find the net and met with stern resistance after the restart. St Gallen sealed their second victory of the group stage when Marco Mathys turned in an inviting cross from Sébastien Wüthrich ten minutes from time. That left the visiting fans tentatively checking events in the other group game at Valencia CF, where a 1-1 draw was enough to confirm Swansea's passage to the round of 32.
