The 28-year-old registered his maiden goal this term though it was not enough to save the Swans from defeat

Wilfried Bony is pleased to have gotten his first goal of the season in Swansea City’s 2-1 loss to Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.

Since returning to the South Wales outfit this summer, the Cote d'Ivoire international has failed to find the back of the net in his all of his seven English Premier League matches but was back on the scoresheet on Saturday.

The striker volleyed home from a delightful Martin Olsson cross to give Paul Clement's side an early lead against his former side.

But goals from Xherdan Shaqiri and Mame Biram Diouf saw the Swans slump to their tenth league loss this term.

The former Manchester City forward was delighted to have registered his first Swansea goal since January 2015 but also expressed his disappointment at the loss.

“Bad result but pleased to be back scoring. We have to keep working harder and the results will come,” Bony tweeted.

Bony will aim to replicate this form to help steer Swansea to victory against West Bromwich Albion in their next league game on December 9.
