Late drama saw Swansea extend their unbeaten league away record with an equaliser deep into stoppage-time to make it 2-2 at Sheffield Wednesday after conceding moments earlier.

Andre Ayew gave the visitors a first-half lead and Wednesday finally equalised through substitute Fernando Forestieri (81) after hitting the woodwork three times.

The home side thought they had won it when Morgan Fox put them ahead but Ben Wilmot struck at the death to level.

Wednesday went close to taking the lead inside the fourth minute when a corner from Kadeem Harris picked out Jacob Murphy and his first-time shot was saved by Freddie Woodman, who pushed the ball onto his left-hand post.

Atdhe Nuhiu also threatened with a curling 20-yard effort which was not far off target.

As the hosts continued to apply early pressure, Woodman parried Steven Fletcher's header and Nuhiu looked to get on the end of the rebound but Ayew was on hand to head clear.

Swansea's first effort of note came when Dominic Iorfa challenged Nathan Dyer and deflected the ball goalwards, forcing Keiren Westwood to save.

The visitors survived another scare on the half-hour mark when Kieran Lee's cross found Fletcher whose header came back off Woodman's left-hand post.

Swansea took the lead against the run of play when Westwood failed to deal with a Matt Grimes corner and Ayew (32) pounced on the loose ball, smashing it into the net from close range.

Bersant Celina put a low drive wide while at the other end, Barry Bannan fired in a 30-yard effort which was on target but straight at Woodman.

Wednesday threatened soon after the restart when Fletcher's searching low cross from the left picked out Murphy, running in at the near post, who shot wide under pressure.

Nuhiu failed to make proper contact after stooping to meet Murphy's free-kick, glancing the ball wide.

Wednesday hit the woodwork for a third time just after the hour-mark. Fletcher's header from a Harris cross was saved by Woodman and Murphy smashed the loose ball against the keeper's left-hand post.

The hosts had a strong appeal for a penalty turned down after Nuhiu appeared to be hauled to the ground inside the area.

Swansea threatened twice in quick succession with Ayew putting a header wide from a Wayne Routledge cross and Wilmot heading against a post.

Westwood made a fine save down to his left to keep out a shot on the turn from Ayew.

Wednesday equalised when Adam Reach's low drive was parried by Woodman and Lee put the ball across the face of goal for Forestieri (81) to finish from close range.

Fox struck in time added on after Iorfa headed down following a corner before Wilmot equalised with a far-post header following a Grimes corner.

Result: Matt Smith comes off bench to score late winner for Millwall against Charlton

Striker Matt Smith came off the bench to net a stoppage-time winner as Millwall beat London rivals Charlton 2-1 at the Den.

In a game dominated by set-pieces, a sixth-minute header from captain Shaun Hutchinson put Millwall in front, but they were pegged back shortly after half-time by Jonathan Leko's smart finish.

The game looked to be petering out into a tame draw but Smith, brought on with just four minutes remaining, rose at the back post and powered the ball past Dillon Phillips to earn the hosts all three points.

Charlton have still not beaten Millwall in the league since 1996, when manager Lee Bowyer, then a teenager, was on the scoresheet.

And the visitors did not look like they had any hope of ending that run in the first 20 minutes, during which they were utterly overrun.

In an electric atmosphere at the Den, Millwall made a lightning-fast start, and almost took the lead after just four minutes, when Phillips flapped at a deflected cross which dropped for Jed Wallace, only for his powerful strike to be blocked.

Charlton's reprieve lasted only two minutes though, as the home side's early pressure paid off from a free-kick.

Shaun Williams crossed from the right and somehow Hutchinson was left unmarked eight yards out to steer his header home.

Millwall then almost doubled their advantage after just nine minutes, with full-back Mahlon Romeo getting forward and unleashing a powerful drive from the edge of the box which forced Phillips into a good save.

But the visitors began to get a foothold in the game as the first half wore on, and went close twice.

First Josh Cullen tried a shot from the edge of the box, which Bartosz Bialkowski fumbled up and onto the bar, before clawing it away inches before it crossed the line.

The Millwall keeper then redeemed himself with a stunning save in first-half stoppage time, pushing Macauley Bonne's close-range volley over the bar.

Bialkowski was called into action again soon after half-time, this time pushing a Darren Pratley effort over, but from the resulting corner he was finally beaten.

After the first ball had been cleared, Charlton worked it back into the box where Leko was able to place his volley into the corner.

The equaliser stung Millwall into action, Ben Thompson forcing Phillips into a fine save following one corner, and Jake Cooper heading just wide from another.

As the minutes ticked by it seemed both sides were more concerned with avoiding defeat than chasing a winner.

That was until seconds from the end when Smith bullied his defender out of the way and headed the winner, sending the home fans delirious.
