Swansea City boss Graham Potter was pleased to see Wayne Routledge make another telling contribution as the winger’s fifth goal of the season secured a draw against Derby.

The Swans made it 11 games unbeaten in the Championship at the Liberty with a second-half fightback capped by Routledge’s close-range finish.

It continued the 34-year-old’s strong run of form over the second half of the season where he has been one of the Swans most consistent performers.

“Yeah, I am pleased for him,” said Potter.

“He’s done well. They were two set-play goals despite lots of stuff going on, so it’s nice for him to score.

“I have said before he has been great for us, he has been great for me. He is a fantastic person and a fantastic professional.”
