Produced a catalogue of saves, including McBurnie’s penalty, to keep Swansea at bay and put the spectre of his Leeds United error firmly behind him.
Hooked one effort off the line and defended stoutly against a very good player in Daniel James.
Looked a bit shaky early on but after correcting his course, Wheater’s afternoon was cut short by a red card. In fairness, he was put in trouble by Murphy’s pass.
Probably Wanderers’ strongest defender at the Liberty Stadium but the pressure was incessant.
Had his work cut out against the pace of Nathan Dyer but held his own. Almost grabbed a goal against the run of play, too.
Gave away the penalty and had been having a frustrating day even before that farcical second yellow card.
Outnumbered. Didn’t really manage get involved as he did against Leeds.
Great to see the youngster back fit again but he struggled to keep hold of the ball before being substituted.
A few flashes of what he can do but looked isolated for the most part.
Got about the pitch well when Wanderers were down to 10 but didn’t hold the ball up well enough in the early stages.
Hopefully his injury does not prove severe. Cut a frustrated figure at times.
