Timm Klose scored his first goal in almost two years as he helped loan club Basel secure back-to-back wins to climb up to third in the Swiss Super League. 

The defender’s last goal was a Championship equaliser at Brentford for Norwich City on New Year’s Day of 2019, his fourth of that title-winning campaign prior to injury keeping him on the fringes during the second half of that season. 

After seeing 2019-20 ruined by a serious knee injury, Klose joined boyhood club Basel on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal, after City’s relegation from the Premier League. 

The 32-year-old has his sights set on a return to the Switzerland squad for next year’s European Championship and has now started five consecutive games, with a 1-0 home win over Servette on Saturday followed by a 4-2 win over FC Sion on Wednesday night – heading in a corner in the 10th minute to open the scoring.
