Kyrell Wilson was delighted to mark his return from injury with a brilliant second-half brace in Swansea City Under-18s' dominant 3-1 victory over Sheffield United at Landore.

Substitute Wilson opened the scoring with a powerful header four minutes after his introduction at half-time. However, the young Blades responded almost immediately through George Dickinson's spot-kick.

But Wilson put the home side back ahead when he fired home with less than 20 minutes to go, before Iwan Morgan rounded things off in stoppage time with Wilson turning provider.

"It's good to be back, I've been working hard to get back onto the pitch," said Wilson.

"I've been doing a lot of work with Lewis (Bush, under-18s' individual coach analyst) to work on individual skills and tasks.

"To see them come out onto the pitch is a good feeling. 

"As a team, we've set ourselves the goal to try and stay unbeaten until the end of the season, and to get the win motivates us even more to aim for it.

"We said it in the changing rooms that they're one of the best teams in their division, but we went out there and showed what we're about.

"The way we were moving to ball, and the way we attacked was really good. All the boys showed real fight in the end and we ended up winning it."

The 18-year-old - who signed his first professional contract with the club last year - is relishing the feeling of being back on the pitch after four months on the sidelines.

"It's been a while since I had that feeling of scoring, so it was definitely a relief." Wilson added.

"Since I've been back I've been wanting a goal to build up my momentum, and I got two in that game.

"There was a bit of atmosphere in the changing rooms after the game, bit of dancing and music, but we were so happy with the way we played today."
