Gomes | “A deserved result – for the club, players, and fans”

Swansea had taken the lead in the third minute of the game through a pinpoint Borja Baston header, before Yiadom struck sweetly in the 90th minute to level proceedings at the Liberty Stadium.

"I saw it come across, and I just concentrated and hit it as hard as I can and, thankfully, it went in the bottom corner - which I'm really glad about," he smiled after the game.

"You know how it goes sometimes - you miss a few chances and you're wondering what's going to happen here. 

"It's a really tough place to come and win or get a point. The first half wasn't great, but we came out with a lot of determination in the second half and we managed to get a goal and get a point.


"We needed to give more as a team collectively in the second half - that's what we did and even if you were watching, you could see the second half was much better than the first.

"Sometimes you can see the goal go in so early, in this case the fourth minute or so, and it's one of those where you need to switch back on mentally, have a clean slate, get everybody together and go again.

"I've come close to scoring quite a few times this season, so I was happy for it to hit the back of the net."

The Royals are back in action on Tuesday night at home to Fulham, under the lights at Madejski Stadium. Make sure you're there to back the boys in RG2 by heading to our Ticketing website here.
