The second-half free-kick of jed Wallace snatched a 1-0 success at the Liberty Stadium for Millwall over Swansea.
The Lions found the top corner to procure a first away win of the year for the side of Gary Rowett.
Since taking over in October the Millwall director matches.
The defeat meant it was home woe for Swansea, who have now lost four occasions this season.
Swans manager Steve Cooper called an unchanged side for the match.
The Swans’ type prompted Rowett to earn a switch that was defensive. Alex Pearce turned right into a three while Tom Bradshaw fell to the bench to make room.
The Lions played the ball wide for Andre Ayew and must have been behind in the second minute following Bersant Celina charged across the halfway point.
The ball round the six-yard box of the Ghanaian fell for Nathan Dyer, however, he failed to place his feet and instead saw the ball move straight between his legs and siphoned off.
Jon Dadi Bodvarsson headed wide as Millwall started to frustrate the Swans by using their defensive organisation and recovered from their scare.
Mahoney was the next to threaten before half-time when he beat on and compelled Freddie Woodman. As the teams went in level at 20, jed Wallace hurried onto the loose ball but could only shoot .
By sending on Kristoffer Pieterson set up of Wayne Routledge in the interval cooper responded.
The decision almost paid off when Shaun Hutchinson turned and shot, but Bartosz Bialkowski raced outside to block his attempt to keep it goalless.
And the Swans were made to pay after Mike van der Hoorn because he threatened to have on the end of a fervent ball downfield, tangled with Wallace.
Referee Andy Davies booked the Swansea guardian and blew to get a free-kick, before Wallace found the top corner from 20 yards out and off himself.
Davies had yet the following major call to create in the last 10 minutes when George Byers seemed to pull on down Jiri Skalek from the box to stop him getting to the cross of Wallace. But the Millwall protests were waved off by the referee.
Sam Surridge flicked the ball over the defence to give fellow substitute Borja Baston a clear sight on goal in the final moments, but the striker’s lob went agonisingly wide as Millwall hauled on to succeed.
