Connor Roberts Swansea City under-23s

17th January 2017

Connor Roberts is eager to help Swansea City Under-23s maintain their unbeaten run this season following his return from a loan spell at Bristol Rovers.
The 21-year-old full-back helped the young Swans extend their unbeaten run in Premier League 2 with a convincing 3-1 win over Newcastle United at Landore on Monday.
The win means the development side stretch their winning run in all competitions to nine games and extend their lead at the top of the Division 2 table to 13 points.
"It was great to be back and to get some game time," he said. "We are on an unbelievable run at the moment, hopefully I can play a part and help that continue.
"Being 13 points clear is great, but in football things can change very quickly. We have to keep working hard in the gym and on the training pitch and maintain our high levels.
"There were areas in the second half where we were a bit sloppy which led to us conceding a late goal, so there is plenty I think we can work on."

Despite playing 54 games whilst on loan at League Two side Yeovil Town last season, the Neath-born defender only featured five times during a four-month loan stint at League One side Rovers before the turn of the year.
"It has been a frustrating few months for me," he admitted. "I did not play as much league football as I would have liked. I only had four or five games compared to the 54 I played last season. 
"I was itching to come back and get some game time. I am keen to play football, so Monday's game was a great opportunity for me.
"Due to rules with the loan system, I can't go back out, so my focus now is to help the under-23s win games as we push to secure first place and make more progress in the cup competitions.
"I feel I have a lot to offer at left or right-back. Wherever I am needed I feel I have a lot to offer. I am happy to do a job."
