Rhys Williams starts first in 2 months as storm stops Paul Glatzel – Liverpool FC
Rhys Williams returned to Swansea starting XI for the first time since September, but storm damage to Prenton Park has already been seen. Paul GlatzelThe game is postponed.
Things have not gone according to plan for Williams in the Championship, with the 20-year-old struggling to build off an impressive half of his season as a reserve Jurgen Klopp.
Under Russell Martin, centre-back has not been the mainstay of the team, with full-backs Kyle Naughton and Ryan Manning preferred in a three-man defence.
Before Saturday, Williams’ last game for the Swans was a 0-2 loss to Brighton inside League Cup on September 22, while in the league, a 3-3 draw against Luton a week earlier saw him subjected to racist abuse.
He was substituted at half-time that day, it’s not clear if it was due to an off-field situation, but Martin then gave him only four minutes in the next 11 games.
For six of them, he wasn’t even in the matchday squad, with Martin suggesting he could return to Liverpool in January, but a visit to Reading at the weekend gave Williams a chance. rare association.
Unfortunately, it came in a 3-2 defeat to Reading, and he was trailed by Andy Carroll on the away team’s second goal of the game.
Williams played the full 90 minutes, but after the game Martin was left to lament a “great sin” when Swansea let the Reading players score three goals after being on the pitch.
There’s at least one game for him to play, though, with Storm Arwen’s impact leading to Tranmere’s meeting with Stevenage being postponed.
Based on League One club, high winds blew “a small portion of the main roof off”, while “a significant amount of roof signs and gutters” were also blown away.
While it was clearly the right decision to postpone the game, it would be a setback for Glatzel as he looks set to build on four goals and two assists in three close starts. Best.
Back to the Championship, Sepp van den Berg played the full 90 minutes when Preston held the top of the table with Fulham with an important 1-1 draw, while Sheyi Ojo made his first appearance in a month when Millwall lost 2-1 to Hull.
Ben Davies completed another 90 minutes in Sheffield United’s first game under new manager Paul Heckingbottom, with Rhian Brewster scored the opening goal in a 2-0 win over Bristol City.
Anderson Arroyo also played 90 minutes of Mirandes’ 1-1 draw with Real Oviedo, while Luis Longstaff came on as a substitute for the final 25 minutes of a 0-1 loss at Queen’s Park to Kilmarnock.
For Vitezslav Jaros, the loan season at St Patrick’s Athletic ended in triumph, as the Irish club battled for a penalty shootout win over Bohemians in the FAI Cup final.
