Swansea extended their unbeaten away run to nine Sky Bet Championship matches but wasted the lead to a 1-1 draw 10-man Huddersfield.
While outcomes in the home have come to be a problem for Steve Coopers men, winning only one match – against opponents Cardiff – at the Liberty Stadium since August, the Swans have fared better on the street.
Home form was a strength for the Terriers under Danny Cowley and Karlan Grant cancelled out Jay Fultons strike.
Midfielder Fulton opener for both Swansea came against the run of play at the 18th minute, but Grantd Huddersfield amount four minutes having a cool ending out of half-time.
Huddersfield looked likely to find a winner in the second half but had Trevoh Chalobah sent to get a headbutt on George Byers in the closing stages as they pushed for a goal.
The visitors, who made four changes to Millwall, arrived under pressure , using goalkeeper Freddie Woodman compelled to tip a 25-yard Chalobah campaign over his crossbar within two minutes.
Jonathan Hogg earned a feisty opening 45 minutes for a clumsy challenges first yellow card on Connor Roberts and things got worse for the hosts, who conceded in the very first time of Swansea strain.
Ben Wilmot headed back hogg clearance from a corner, together with Fulton firing a powerful end after the ball has been poked to him to the right of this goal.
Home lovers voiced their rising dismay in the operation of referee Jarred Gillett because the reservation of Fraizer Campbell for a challenge on Mike Van Der Hoorn required deliberation, however they celebrated in the 41st minute.
Alex Pritchards shot from just outside the box preoccupied kindly to the path of Grant, who kept his composure to put a shot outside Woodman for his 10th goal of the season.
Van Der Hoorn did not emerge for the second half, substituted by Ben Cabango, whose participation on his league debut proved to be an important interception to snuff out a cross.
Woodman touched over a Pritchard of the hour mark and Juninho Bacuna then snapped a shot across goal from a tight angle.
