Wolverhampton Wanderers may have been relegated from the Barclays Premier League but they showed their spirit by recovering from 3-0 down after 15 minutes to draw in an entertaining match at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers changed his formation form 4-3-3 to 3-4-3 and the new shape appeared to work as Andrea Orlandi scored the fastest goal of the season after 24 seconds.
Two minutes later it was 2-0 through Joe Allen and Nathan Dyer added a third before a quarter of an hour had passed. Rodgers then changed formation and watched as Kevin Doyle got a goal back.
Danny Graham restored the three-goal lead just after the half-hour but that lasted just two minutes as Matt Jarvis scored for Terry Connor's Wolves.
Shortly after half-time David Edwards got a third for Wolves and Jarvis capped off a fine display with the equaliser on 69 minutes. The point meant Swansea were mathematically safe from relegation. For Wolves it was too late.
