Coach Anthony Wright praised the application of Swansea City Under-21s after they fought back to claim a third-consecutive win with a 3-1 victory at Peterborough United.

Glory Nzingo opened the scoring just after the 15-minute mark, slotting the ball through the legs of Will Blackmore in the Posh net.

The Swans' lead lasted a mere minute as Pemi Aderoju tapped home immediately after the restart.

However, substitute Kyrell Wilson made no mistake to find the net twice in the closing stages, getting back on the scoresheet following his recent return from four months on the sidelines.

"I'm really pleased with the players' application today, it was a difficult game with regards the conditions and a lively pitch. However, we had a lot of control in the game," said Wright.

"We scored three very good goals, and I'm extremely pleased to see Kyrell back on the scoresheet after a long absence. 

"Cameron Congreve came on at half-time and made a big difference, and he brought a lot of quality for us, as did Kyrell later on in that second half.

"We had three goals disallowed during the game so, in terms of learning, it was pleasing to see that the players didn’t react in a negative way, and kept pushing until the end. They got their rewards."
