It’s a frustrating time to be a football supporter and player at this moment in time, with recent off-the-field events calling an abrupt halt to the majority of fixtures across the globe.
No scheduled return date has been put in place as of yet for fixtures in the UK, which will disrupt some teams’ promotion bids this season.
Swansea City are one of the teams targeting a top-six finish this season in the Championship, with Steve Cooper’s side currently sat 11th in the second tier standings, and just three points adrift of the play-off positions.
The Swans were last in the Premier League back in the 2017/18 campaign, where they relegated after a disappointing season under the management of Carlos Carvalhal.
They had some memorable displays in the top-flight though, and almost pulled of a real scalp against Manchester United back in 2016, although the Red Devils ran out narrow 2-1 winners at Old Trafford.
Having taken the lead through Anthony Martial, the Swans responded with a goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson, who headed home from an inch-perfect cross from Mo Barrow.
Wayne Rooney’s goal shortly after though settled the scores on the day, with the Swans leaving Old Trafford empty handed.
Barrow recently took to Instagram to look back at his assist for the goal, with the caption claiming that he was missing football during this break from action.
Barrow is currently out on loan with Turkish side Denizlispor, and it’s set to be an interesting summer ahead of the Gambian winger, as his future at Championship side Reading remains in limbo.
Can you score full marks in this higher or lower Swansea City quiz?
Swansea fans will remember this well.
Barrow certainly chipped in during their time in the Premier League, and his pace and trickery on the ball made him a real handful for opposition defenders.
It was a well-placed cross, and a brilliant header from Sigurdsson on the day, and the Swans were unlucky not to come away with anything to show for their efforts.
Barrow is struggling out on loan at the moment, and it’ll be interesting to see if he has a long-term future with Reading when he returns to the Madejski Stadium in the summer.
