Evans: U23s getting better with every game

29th January 2018

Jack Evans has urged Swansea City Under-23s to build on their momentum in Premier League 2 by returning to winning ways when they face West Ham at Landore on Monday (7pm).

The young Swans saw their four-match winning streak in the league ended by Derby County last time out as they surrendered a 3-1 lead before being pegged back to a 3-3 draw.

Nevertheless, they remain unbeaten in five games and could move up to fourth place with victory over West Ham, who are also looking to climb into the top four.

The Swans were still finding their feet in Premier League 2 when the Hammers ran out commanding 5-2 winners in the reverse fixture back in August.

Evans, who played that day and has gone on to make 11 league appearances for the Under-23s this season, has called on his team-mates to turn the tables on home soil and show just how far they have progressed in the past five months.

“We’re doing well in the league. We’re unbeaten for a few games,” the 19-year-old midfielder said. 

“We were poor the last time we played West Ham, so it would nice to show how far we’ve come since then and avenge that defeat.

“We’re getting better with every game. We’re in a strong position and need to push on by getting back to winning ways here.

“We’ve got a lot of confidence in the league, so we’ve just got to build on that by going about our business the way we normally do and, hopefully, getting the three points.”
