Kyrell Wilson targeting more goals after Hull City brace
Swansea City Under-21s' striker Kyrell Wilson has his sights firmly set on more goals following his double in the victory over Hull City.
Wilson netted the first two Swansea goals in the 4-0 win over the Tigers with a pair of well-taken finishes, before Sam Parker continued his fine start to the campaign with his fourth goal of the season.
Thomas Woodward would add Swansea's fourth goal in stoppage time, but their margin of victory could easily have been greater, with Liam Smith hitting the post twice and Wilson rattling the crossbar.
Wilson, 17, who first joined the Swans on scholarship terms in the summer of 2021 - was pleased to mark his return to full fitness with a brace inside three minutes.
“It was good to bounce back from the game we had against Sheffield United. We had a lot to work on, but I feel like we did that.
“The coaches gave us a lot of things to work on in the week, and they came out today. We were really good on the pitch.
“It’s been a bit of a goal drought for me, I’m finding my rhythm. I got injured during pre-season, so for me it’s about building my fitness back up, but those two goals have definitely helped my confidence.
“Credit to the boys at the back, they did really well too. That’s what we’ve been working on as well, trying to tighten up and make sure we don’t give anything away."
Wilson - who signed professional terms with the club last season - is also hoping for the opportunity to work within the senior environment in the future.
“I want to keep pushing on and try to solidify my place in the under-21s, and if the opportunities come up with the first team, then I’ll do my best to take them.”
