Loan watch: Rhian Brewster scores second Swansea goal
Rhian Brewster scored his second goal for Swansea City to earn his loan club a 1-1 draw with Preston North End on Saturday.
A poacher’s effort from the Liverpool striker ensured Steve Cooper’s side claimed a point from the tussle between two Championship play-off hopefuls at Deepdale.
Brewster told Swansea’s official website: “That’s two goals in four games for me now. I’ll take it. I’m just trying to help the team get promotion so anything I can do, I will.
“It wasn’t the cleanest of strikes; I just tried to get something on the ball because I knew it was an open goal, but they all count and I’ll take it.
“Hopefully, I can keep kicking on now. We’ve got a home game against Derby next week to look forward to.
“I’ll try to get another goal if I can and help the boys get the three points.”
Meanwhile, in the battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League, Harry Wilson helped Bournemouth to a vital 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.
Loris Karius’ Besiktas beat Rizespor 2-1, and there were draws for both Marko Grujic and Nathaniel Phillips in Germany. Grujic’s Hertha BSC played out a goalless stalemate with Schalke, with Stuttgart and Phillips being held 1-1 at St Pauli.
Sheyi Ojo featured as Rangers drew 0-0 with Aberdeen at Ibrox, and Ovie Ejaria completed all of Reading’s 1-1 draw against Cardiff City in the Championship.
Elsewhere in England’s second tier, Herbie Kane came off the bench as Hull City lost 5-1 to Brentford, while Academy duo Rhys Williams and Daniel Atherton each enjoyed wins in the lower leagues.
Williams’ Kidderminster Harriers defeated King’s Lynn Town 2-0 and goalkeeper Atherton kept a clean sheet as Marine overcame Ossett United 1-0.
