Swansea City are on the brink of securing their Championship safety after an own-goal from Cardiff City loanee Andy Rinomhota handed them a 1-0 win at the Swansea.com Stadium.

Here's how the Swans fared on Saturday afternoon:

Carl Rushworth 6

Swansea had 71% possession leaving the Swans keeper with very little to do.

Josh Tymon 7

The left-back’s day started with an early burst forward which livened up the crowd. Didn’t have too much to do defensively but did well going forward and linked up well with Paterson whilst keeping wingback Sebastian Revan very quiet.

Ben Cabango 8 (star man)

Looked more comfortable on the ball than midweek against Stoke and dominated both Nombe and Eaves, two very physical strikers. A high quality performance from the defender. However, Eaves's late chance was a very close call for the Swans.

Harry Darling 7

Looked confident in the second half as he strode forward to unleash a long range effort at the Rotherham goal. His forward runs advanced the Swans on a few occasions and his defensive partnership with Cabango proved solid as the hosts kept a clean sheet. A few of the defender's passes did miss the mark, however.

Josh Key 7

Linked up well with Ronald and Fulton a few times on the right and had a very solid game both in defence and attack.

Jay Fulton 6

His yellow card challenge to stop a Rotherham attack may have been important and the defensive dirty work was done well. Overall, a fairly understated performance for the Scotsman.

Matt Grimes 7

The skipper kept hold of the ball well throughout. Rinomhota and Clucas didn’t break through the Swansea midfield and Grimes was a big part of that. Unremarkable but a composed performance.

Jamie Paterson 7

His performance may not have been quite as lively as previous fixtures, however six chances created speaks for itself. His heavy pressing nearly paid off early on as he stole the ball to set up Cullen who hit it straight at Johansson.

Oli Cooper 6

An industrious performance but earned a yellow card for his challenge on Odoffin. Made some important contributions in defence but a lack of attacking involvement limits the Welshman to a 6.

Ronald 7

Another energetic performance from the Brazilian. Ronald took four shots at Johansson’s goal and troubled the Swede on a few occasions. Unfortunately, all of his seven crosses missed the mark.

Liam Cullen 6

Battled hard throughout the game causing an early flare up with fomer Cardiff man Lee Peltier. Going forward though, he didn’t pose much of a threat to Rotherham’s physical defensive line.


Jamal Lowe 6 (for Cooper, 65): Added a bit of pace to this Swans side but lacked a huge impact on the final stages of the game.

Liam Walsh 7 (for Fulton, 73): Will claim the assist for the corner which was turned into the Rotherham net and played well in midfield

Aimar Govea 6 (for Ronald, 73): An energetic run at the Rotherham defence earned the corner that won Swansea the game. Showed his pace yet again but had little involvement.
