Swansea manager Steve Cooper has backed Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster to remain the man for the big occasion after he started his side's comeback at St Andrew's.
Brewster scored his eighth goal in 16 games since joining on loan from Liverpool in January.
His strike cancelled out Lukas Jutkiewicz's early opener before Ben Cabango and Jay Fulton put Swansea within a point and a place of the play-offs and arch-rivals Cardiff.
"That's where you want him – in the box and scoring goals and if he gets a chance in the box, you fancy him," said Cooper about England Under-21s forward Brewster.
"It wasn't an easy finish – you might look back on it and say he should score but he kept it down well and took the opportunity.
"I was really pleased for him again. I thought he could have got another when he might have gone round the keeper.
"But he was full of running and endeavour again and a goal threat.
"These younger players have to make the most of their opportunities they're being given and that doesn't just apply to him but all of the young players."
This week, Jurgen Klopp revealed he plans to have face-to-face talks with talented prospect Rhian Brewster ahead of next season.
"The plan with Rhian [is] we will talk to him," Klopp said at a press conference on Tuesday. "It was clear his situation was different to a lot of the boys here.
"They really wanted him at Swansea and that is important. Rhian shows his talent is clear.
"How it is next year we will talk about it with him."
After winning the Golden Boot for England at the Under-17 World Cup in 2017, Brewster's development was hampered by a nasty ankle ligament injury which kept him out of action for over a year.
The forward had to undergo surgery and intensive rehabilitation to get back out on the field, but seems to have re-found his scoring boots in the Championship.
