on Wednesday. The 20-year-old defender scored a header in the 54th minute and won the match for the Swans as they stay in fourth place on the table with 59 points. In a post-match interview,

Steve Cooper

has spoken about Cabango’s performance.

“It’s a bonus having a player like that,

“It’s not a coincidence, it’s good technique, and it was a brilliant delivery from the corner by Conor Hourihane.

“It worked to a tee, but it was down to the quality of the delivery from Conor and the desire of Benny to go and win the header. He’s a bit of a throwback as a centre-half.

“Quite rightly, people will write about the goal, but he played really well tonight and he’s having a really good season for us.”

He added:

“I thought we were the superior team, created the clearer chances in the game and deserved to win what was a tough game,” added Cooper.

“We were quite happy with a point at their place and we knew it was going to be tough. They had an excellent win at the weekend against Brentford and named an unchanged team.

“But (goalkeeper) Freddie (Woodman) has not really had a save to make, considering we had to defend a lot of long balls late on and set-pieces. We showed a good side of resilience.”
