Anthony Wright has high hopes of finishing the season on a high next week after watching Swansea City Under-21s claim a third win in a row against Bristol City at Landore.

The Swans completely dominated the opening half and led at the break after Josh Thomas and Joe Thomas netted a goal apiece in the space of 10 minutes.  

Ruben Davies proved to be a busy man as he saw numerous chances blocked either side of the interval, but Joel Cotterill's spot-kick sealed the deserved three points with 20 minutes to go. 

Seb-Palmer-Houlden pulled one back at the death for the visitors, drilling home past the outstretched hand of Remy Mitchell, but it was only a consolation.

Despite conceding late on, Wright was pleased with large parts of the performance, which sets up a season finale against Birmingham City at the Stadium on Wednesday.

"There were things we were actually disappointed with, which is a really good thing, by the way. We had some brilliant moments in the game, but at times I think we were just too eager to go and score goals," said Wright.

"We could have controlled the match a little bit better in spells, we could have taken territory with the ball and then just sustained that.

"It's not a negative, but a massive positive. We played the team that's second in the league and we beat them on the night quite comfortably.

"We could have scored another three or four goals on another day. 

"We stick to everything that we do, it's really important to have an identity at the club. As I've always said, we'll try and follow as close to the first team as we can.

"It doesn't matter who plays, everyone understands what we're about.

"At the moment, I just love everything all the boys are about. The way they train, the way they apply themselves in games.

"Every time we come to play, I really look forward to watching them and, hopefully, we can finish on a high at the stadium next week."
