Kyrell Wilson admits he did not expect to rediscover his goalscoring touch so quickly after returning from injury, with the striker bagging a brace in Swansea City Under-21s’ 3-1 victory over Bristol City.

Wilson’s goals, plus his assist to set up Charile Veevers for Swansea’s third, made it nine wins from nine for the development side when playing at the Stadium over the last two seasons.

It also moved them to within sight of a two-two finish in the Professional Development League South, and a play-off place.

Wilson had missed a significant period of time with an ankle injury, and has only recently returned to action.

But he has wasted little time making an impact, and he now has 19 goals for the season after four in three appearances following his comeback.

“It was great to do it in front of all the fans at the stadium. We are always appreciative of that, they got behind us and I am glad we were able to get the three goals and put in a good performance,” said Wilson.

“It’s great for me to be scoring again. I had a bit of worry that it would take me some time to try and find my form but thankfully I have found it quickly and I just want to keep scoring and assisting to try and help the team reach our goals.

“We set ourselves the target of trying to get into that top two, and I think we showed that desire and mentality today by responding with two quick goals after they equalised, and I think as a group we have showed great character.

“We are all confident as a team that we can get into the top two, we obviously have a very good record at home, so we will recover then look to build towards these final games and try and get the job done.”
