Swansea put breathing space between themselves and the relegation zone with a 2-1 win at Sunderland, with Carl Rushworth making it 34 consecutive appearances for the Swans in the Championship.

Andrew Moran came on for the final 15 minutes of Blackburn’s 1-1 draw with Norwich City, while Yasin Ayari was an unused sub for Rovers.

Vitesse got their first league win since mid-October with a 2-1 win at Excelsior, which lifts Vitesse off the bottom of the table. Kacper Kozlowski played for 89 minutes, while Adrian Mazilu was an unused substitute.
