Ben Wilmot buzzing after another vital goal

Ben Wilmot was buzzing after his second key goal in the space of three games rescued a point for Swansea City at Sheffield Wednesday.

The 20-year-old centre-back had opened his senior account by netting the winner in the South Wales derby on his first league start for the Swans.

And the on-loan Watford defender struck again at Hillsborough, arriving perfectly to guide a Matt Grimes corner into the net in stoppage time.

That made it 2-2 and kept Swansea’s unbeaten away record intact.

And, while disappointed Steve Cooper’s side had not managed to take all three points having held the lead for much of the contest, he was delighted to make sure they left South Yorkshire with a positive result.

“I’m very pleased to help us get the point. Personally, I’m buzzing,” he said.

“I’m happy to have scored but a little bit disappointed at the same time.

“I had a chance earlier on at 1-0 and, had it gone in, I think we would have won the game.

“On the whole, we’ve come away a tad disappointed. We feel that we should have won the game and killed it off a bit earlier.

“But we’re pleased that we can come to big places like this, play the way we did and get a result.”
