March 10 (Reuters) - Huddersfield Town failed to convert any of their 29 shots and were held to a goalless draw by 10-man Swansea City in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

After an even start to the game, Swansea forward Jordan Ayew was shown a straight red card in the 11th minute for a bad challenge on Huddersfield midfielder Jonathan Hogg, leaving the visitors with a tough task on their hands.

Huddersfield’s best chance of the half came in the 42nd minute when Steve Mounie’s header looped just over the bar as Swansea held on to go into the break with the scores level.

The hosts piled on the pressure in the second half and saw a Tom Ince header strike the woodwork in the 91st minute with the resilient visitors securing a hard-fought draw. (Reporting by Aditi Prakash in Bengaluru Editing by Christian Radnedge)
