Championship: Swansea City 1-1 Derby County

Swansea City came from behind to secure a draw against play off hopefuls Derby County at the Liberty Stadium.

This result sees the Swans move up to ninth while the Rams are hanging by a thread in sixth, Lampard’s side will possibly need to secure a win on the last day of the season at home against West Brom to guarantee their place in the play offs.

This was a game of two halves, the Rams led 1-0 at half time thanks to a first half poweful header by skipper Richard Keogh, but midway in the second half Wayne Routledge equalised with a rebound for the Swans.

Both sides created some early chances, Daniel James cut in from the left and let a low shot fly straight at Kelle Roos. Harry Wilson struck an edge of the area strike which was blocked by Kyle Naughton.

The Rams’ Bradley Johnson’s far post header was easily dealt with by Kristoffer Nordfeldt.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Wilson’s accurate corner was met by a powerful header by skipper Keogh that struck the far post and flew into the net.

The Swans had a decent spell of possession, but poor finishing by Dan James and Oli McBurnie who spurned chances from inside the box.

Just before the break Wilson's curling effort forced a tip over the bar by Nordfeldt.

Frank Lampard’s Derby County outfit were good value for their 1-0 cushion at half-time.

Graham Potter’s Swans started brightly and played with more urgency as Routledge set-up substitute Fulton who drilled his shot over the crossbar.

Mount had his shot blocked for a corner and skipper Keogh headed high and wide as the Rams looked for their second goal.

Mike van der Hoorn tried a shot from distance but it went straight to Roos who gathered comfortably.

Rams lone striker Martyn Waghorn was replaced by Mason Bennett.

The Swans deservedly equalised in the 66th minute when a corner was met a by a terrific McBernie header was parried by Roos onto the post and Routledge reacted quickest to fire home the rebound.

Graham Potter will be happy that his side reacted from being a goal down and finished with a thoroughly deserved point maintaining the Swans' impressive unbeaten 11 games streak at the Liberty.
