Rhian Brewster's free-kick helps Swansea earn point against Millwall

Liverpool loanee Rhian Brewster had a hand in the goal that rescued a point for Swansea against Millwall on Tuesday.

The early Championship kick-off ended 1-1 at The Den with Mason Bennett having got the goal for the home side.

Mason Bennett gave Millwall the lead 21 minutes into the first half following a quick break from the home side.

Jed Wallace provided the assist as Bennett’s shot found the bottom right corner.

Brewster came close to quickly levelling things up just seven minutes later but his headed effort was cleared off the line by Jake Cooper.

Andre Ayew prevented Millwall from scoring a second early in the second half with a vital interception that denied Tom Bradshaw a tap in.

Liverpool loanee Brewster then had a hand in making it 1-1 when his free-kick from 25 yards crashed against the crossbar and went in off goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

Swansea had a let off in the 75th minute when Wallace squandered a chance when he couldn’t direct his header from close range on target.

Neither side could find the winner late on and had to settle for the point, which does no good for their chances of catching the teams in the play-off places.
