Graham Potter’s Swansea City produced an excellent, fighting performance away at Millwall on Saturday evening, coming back from a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1 in the final 15 minutes despite losing Baker-Richardson after just 5 minutes.
A side with an average age of just 23 came through a number of setbacks to claim all three points that sees them go up to 6th place in the Championship table.
Baker-Richardson, who was making his League debut, was sent off very early on – making it a very tough task but we came through it well. The second setback saw Leroy Fer going off later in the first half through injury, and later in the second half Martin Olsson was also subbed through injury – forcing Potter to make changes, but those changes saw Montero coming on on the hour mark and he made a huge impact with two assists in the space of about nine minutes. Kyle Naughton also came on and played at left back as well as in midfield – two positions he’s not used to but he came through it well and his midfield cameo saw him in a goalscoring position as he fired in from 20 yards to put us level.
There were big performances again from the backline, and goalkeeper Erwin Mulder again backed up Potter’s decision to keep him in the first-team with a superb save late on to keep us in front.
