Millwall away Kuharevich celebration

Mykola Kuharevich was delighted to come off the bench and score his first Swansea City goal in the 3-0 victory over Millwall at The Den on Saturday.

The 22-year-old moved to south Wales from Troyes in the summer, missing most of pre-season. After working his way to fitness, he has made a handful of appearances off the bench for the Swans.

He was introduced at half-time against Millwall - replacing Jerry Yates - and headed home a Josh Key cross with ten minutes remaining to seal back-to-back wins for Michael Duff's side.

While Kuharevich was keen to stress that the win was the most important thing, he also recognised that his first goal in Swans colours was a big moment.

“It’s a big moment for me, I’m so happy to score,” he said.

“It’s a special feeling especially because we won the game, because that is important.

“It’s a good thing for me to score, and that will give me confidence for the future.

“We are so happy after our second win in a row. It gives us a lot of confidence, and it was nice to score some goals and keep a clean sheet.

“That’s important for us, we just have to keep going and keep working.

“The result gives us a lot of confidence. We always work hard, every day we work hard, and we give everything on the training pitch, but we have to do this in the games.

“We appreciate the fans a lot, for travelling. We are happy to make them happy.”
