FA Youth Cup Preview: Swans v Chelsea
28th January 2015
The Under-18s will be bidding to reach the sixth round of the FA Youth Cup when they travel to Chelsea on Wednesday (7.05pm).
The young Swans face the five-time winners and reigning champions at Aldershot's Recreation Ground with a place in the last eight at stake.
Swansea came from behind to beat Doncaster last week, as well as seeing off Watford in round three.
Chelsea, meanwhile, beat Leeds 2-0 in the third round before thrashing Huddersfield 6-1 in round four to book their place in the last 16.
The winners of Wednesday's tie will face a trip to either Newcastle or Sunderland in the quarter-finals.
And coach Cameron Toshack insists the squad are relishing the challenge of facing the Blues.
"It's a fantastic opportunity for everyone," he said. "We played Chelsea in a pre-season friendly and have first-hand experience of their playing style and athleticism that they possess.
"We're under no illusions about the game but it is one that we are all really looking forward to.
"We want to be the best that we can be and I hope we do ourselves justice because the boys have had a great run so far and done well.
"We'll be well prepared and one thing I can promise is that we'll give it everything we've got and do our very best."
