It’s now three goals in two games for Swansea City’s Liam Cullen – albeit over a three-month period. The 21-year-old returned to the Swansea squad for the first time at the weekend since scoring twice in the FA Cup win against Nottingham Forest on January 24th, a tie which also saw him limp off late on with an ankle injury.
