Jamal Lowe, a recent recruit of Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz, scored twice for promotion-chasing Swansea City in their comprehensive 3-0 success over Millwall in the English Football League Championship (EFL) on 10 April.
Swansea, fourth in the EFL, are in with a shot of making it to the Premier League although automatic promotion – afforded to the top two teams – seems out of reach with Norwich City and Watford way ahead of the chasing pack in that particular race.
Lowe’s Welsh club firmly remain in the mix to reach the lottery of the EFL play-offs, which comprises four teams, with knockout phases to determine just one side whose prize is to win promotion to the highly lucrative Premier League.The 26-year-old striker, who made his Jamaica debut last month against the United States and scored in the 4-1 reversal, had his scoring boots back on for club over the weekend.
Lowe, who has sadly been recently on the receiving end of racial abuse, opened his account for the Swans on 76 minutes and added his second strike nine minutes later.
Swansea head coach Steve Cooper enthused after the win: “I’m pleased for Jamal, in a week where he has shown a lot of class and the sort of guy he is.
“He didn’t need to score two goals today to make the discrimination he has received any easier to take, and he didn’t need to score two goals today for us to know what a good person he is.
“People ask a lot about goals but he does not let it affect him, and that’s the sign of a good character and a good player.
“We were a real attacking threat, but they were excellent goals for Jamal. He was in a good position in the first half yet didn’t score, but he has not let it affect him and he has scored twice.
“The fact he did score two goals at the end of a difficult week makes us all really proud of Jamal, proud of all the boys who have been on the end of abuse, and proud of the stance the club has made this week.”
