Revenge is sweet as the Super Swans returned to the scene of last season’s biggest defeat and handed out an Rs whipping of their own to a stubborn QPR side.
The Swans had the better of an entertaining if sometimes scrappy first period.
Celina was excelling out wide but did his best work through the middle, latching on to Ayew of the Andre variety’s lightning quick counter attack and slipping the ball under the keeper for one nil.
Warburton must have delivered a kick up his Rs at half time and the pressure built. Sure enough the equaliser came, on loan Hammer Hugill the man to finally beat an inspired Woodman in the Swansea goal.
But this Swans side is made of such stern stuff…the disappointment was shrugged off…the riposte was emphatic…and a star was born!
Young speedster Jordon Garrick bounded off the bench for his League debut and his sheer pace and impudent trickery won the penalty that Borja slammed in to restore the lead.
And then Sam Surridge got in on the act with his first goal in a Swans shirt, heading in after great work by ex-Ranger Bidwell gave Ayew the opportunity to turn provider again.
1-3, case closed, game over. Warburton’s boys brown bread.
10 points from the opening 4 games, goals aplenty, still unbeaten, and Cooper’s Troopers have more character than Downton Abbey!
