Cullen: Let's build consistency

14th January 2019

Liam Cullen insists Swansea City Under-23s must focus on building consistency ahead of their Premier League 2 showdown with Leicester City this evening (7pm).

The young Swans return to Landore looking to pick up from where they left off in their resounding 5-1 victory over Derby County last week.

That win moved them to within four points of safety with eight games remaining in Premier League 2.

Cullen scored twice at the Loughborough University Stadium, taking his goal tally for the campaign to six.

And the Swans forward, who has encouraged his team-mates to build on that momentum, insists they are ready for the battle.

“All we want to do is get out of the relegation zone and stay in the league,” the 19-year-old said.

“We had a slower start to the season but we’ve all come back in the New Year, trained hard and are focused on the job ahead.

“We’ve now got to focus on trying to string a few results together. That’s what will drag us up the table and away from where we are.”

Cullen knows the Swans face a tricky test against second-placed Leicester, who will go top of the table with victory at Landore.

But he insists that confidence and belief will be high for the hosts following last week’s performance at Derby.

“We know we can win the game,” he added. “We’ve got a tough job on our hands but, after the way we played against Derby, we can only go into it with confidence.”
