Swansea boss Cooper pleased with Brewster debut

Swansea City boss Steve Cooper was pleased with Rhian Brewster's debut for their draw with Cardiff City.

Liverpool striker Brewster played the full match as Steve Cooper's team drew 0-0 with rivals Cardiff, thrown into the action immediately by his new club.

Cooper, who worked with Brewster as he came through the England youth setup, said of his loan signing: "It was a difficult game for him, but we saw glimpses of his athleticism, his mentality and his willingness to be positive.

"He started with a yellow card closing down, which tells you everything about him.

"It was a good experience for him, but he is here to deliver too and I felt he did a good job for the team.

"Of course, we would have liked to create more chances with him on the end of them.

"I know the player, I know his attitude and he will catch the eye for what he does going towards goal.

"He works so hard, he presses really well. He likes a battle and I know he can handle that part of the league with no problem."

Brewster is on-loan at Swans to the end of the season.
