Anthony Wright delighted with "terrific" showing from Swansea City Under-21s

4th September

Coach Anthony Wright was a happy man following Swansea City Under-21s'' "terrific" showing at the Stadium as they picked up their second consecutive home win win in the Professional Development League with a 4-0 victory against Hull City.

Kyrrell Wilson netted the first two Swansea goals with a pair of well-taken finishes, before Sam Parker continued his fine start to the campaign with his fourth goal of the season. Thomas Woodward would add Swansea's fourth goal in stoppage time.

It is now seven wins in a row at the Stadium for the professional development phase side and it was also the ideal way to bounce back from defeat at Sheffield United last time out, with the Swans collecting a first clean sheet of the season.

And Wright was "over the moon" with the way the squad controlled the game on and off the ball, on a sunny afternoon in SA1.

“I’m over the moon for the boys today. I thought it was a tale of two halves really, and and we’ve not been too good at adapting in those situations at times," he said.

“In the first half, off the ball, we were superb. We pressed really aggressively against a tough side today, we knew it’d be a test for us. 

“I think the shape off the ball, and the way we went after them really upset them, and gave them no rhythm in the game.  

“When we were on the ball, we were terrific. We were so brave building through, and we came through with three goals in the first half. 

“We were a little disappointed as we could have had two or three more goals in the first half, but we were just a pleasure to watch. 

“We weren't good enough with the ball against Sheffield United and we certainly weren’t good off it. But that was our main focus this week, and I think you saw that in the first half, the boys were terrific on and off the ball. 

“The second half, especially in the heat, the pace slowed a bit and we don’t want to play that way, but we said we’d stay compact and connect, and focus on keeping a clean sheet. 

“Without the ball we were in total control, and then when we got it, we could have had more goals. 

“I’m absolutely delighted today; it was always going to be tough for us, but we came through it.”
