Who Hit The Target - Swansea City 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday
Swansea fought back from 1-0 down against Sheffield Wednesday to claim their second win in a row. Graham Potter stuck with the same team that beat Brentford last time out, the only change being due to Martin Olsson’s injury. Swansea dominated the first half and arguably could have been 2 or 3 goals to the good, but couldn’t convert their chances. After the break, Marco Matias made the most of a Joe Rodon error, beating Erwin Mulder at his near post. 2 goals in 2 minutes completed a quick turnaround however, with 3 players in particular impressing Bet UK.
The Welsh international was brought back into the starting line up on Saturday following Martin Olsson’s injury, and proved to Graham Potter why he should be starting every week. A few shaky performances after signing his extended contract saw Roberts drop to the bench. Against Sheffield Wednesday however, Roberts was as natural as he had been so far this season. He provided a constant threat up and down the right wing, almost acting as another midfielder when Swansea go forward. A couple of well-timed interventions stopped Sheffield Wednesday from building on their 1-0 lead, before he grabbed an assist for Swansea’s equaliser.
Initially left out of the starting line up, Swansea certainly have Celina’s impact to thank for this weekend’s 3 points. Brought on for Kyle Naughton after Marco Matias’ opener, it only took 6 minutes for Celina to change the game. Barrie McKay played a perfectly weighted through ball for Connor Roberts, who fired across the edge of the area. Celina was perfectly placed just inside the box to sweep home. Before Swansea fans even had a chance to finish celebrating their equaliser, Celina was on the go again. Just a minute after his goal, he played a perfect lofted pass into the path of Wayne Routledge, who ran into the box before finishing through Cameron Dawson.
After not even being included in the match day squad for nearly 2 months, Wayne Routledge has now scored 2 goals in 7 days. The veteran winger was lively throughout the match and looked like he had a point to prove in front of the Swansea faithful. Routledge had a couple of first half opportunities, dragging his shot wide before firing straight at Dawson from 6 yards out. Routledge finally took his chance in the second half, using his electric pace to run onto Bersant Celina’s ball. He took the ball in his stride as he ran into the box, before slotting through Dawson’s legs from 10 yards out. The goal completed a turnaround in the game but could also be a turnaround in Routledge’s season, as he looks to become a mainstay in the first team.
