Freddie Woodman claimed his 11th clean sheet in a 0-0 draw at home against West Brom today. The point moves Swansea to just 3 points behind Preston in the final playoff place. However, they are down in 11th, so they have a lot of clubs still ahead of them.
Freddie has started every league match for Swansea this season. He turned 23-year-old this week and will have just one year left on his contract when he returns to Newcastle this summer.

Jacob Murphy made his fifth straight start for Sheffield Wednesday at Brentford this afternoon. However, the Owls were swarmed by the Bees losing 5-0. Newcastle have been linked with Brentford’s Said Benrahma recently, and the Algerian had two assists in this game.
The loss moves Sheffield Wednesday down to 15th while Brentford move up to 4th in the Championship. Jacob did play the full ninety minutes on the right wing.

Kelland Watts started once again for Mansfield Town in a 2-1 win at Northampton. The center-back was replaced late in stoppage time with a potential injury. We hope it’s nothing serious for Kelland who missed a few months while on loan at Stevenage earlier this season with an injury.
The win moves the Stags eight points above Macclesfield in the drop zone.
