It was a home debut to remember for Rhian Brewster as the youngster scored his first senior goal in Swansea City’s 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic. (h/t Sky Sports)
Nathan Byrne had given Wigan lead, only for Brewster to bring the Swans level with a clinical finish at the 19th-minute mark.
Swansea ended up winning the game 2-1 courtesy of an Andrew Ayew goal in the second half. It has been a promising start for Brewster at the Liberty Stadium and is hopefully just the start of bigger things to come.

Harry Wilson ( Bournemouth)
It was a frustrating night for the Welsh winger as he was sacrificed for Simon Wallis in the 34th minute. The substitution was the consequence of a tactical reshuffle effected by the sending off of Steve Cook.
The night got worse for The Cherries as they lost 1-0 and now find themselves in very real danger of being relegated. Wilson has played 22 times for Bournemouth this season and has scored 6 goals.
Herbie Kane (Hull City)

Kamil Grabara (Huddersfield Town)
Grabara played the full 90 minutes as he kept a clean sheet in the 0-0 draw against Brentford. Huddersfield could have really done with a win and are looking at the prospect of back to back relegations if their form does not pick up soon.
Marko Grujic (Hertha Berlin)
