Swansea City Under-18s defender Filip Lissah felt he and his team-mates had produced their best performance of the season - and laid down a marker for the future - in their 4-0 win at Wigan Athletic.

Lissah notched three first-half assists, providing for Zane Myers and Charlie Veevers within the space of three minutes before a brilliant ball for Iwan Morgan made it 3-0.

The Swans also secured a first clean sheet since January with a resolute second-half performance, with Josh Edwards sealing the win with a late free-kick.

Lissah was pleased to get three assists as he continues to develop his understanding of the right wing-back role, but was keen to praise his team-mates for the fight they showed on the pitch.

“It doesn’t get much better than that, it was a good game from everyone, we stuck true to our standards, we came here and prepared well, we outfought them on the pitch and I’m just so proud of everyone,” said Lissah.

“I really enjoyed it, I just found myself playing my football and there’s no better feeling then when you’re enjoying yourself on the pitch and doing what you love.

“Right wing-back was a new position for me this year and in the last couple of weeks I’ve felt like I’m starting to truly understand it, getting that space on the wing wasn’t something that I was used to but now that I am, it’s something that I really enjoy.

“The clean sheet was a focus and a mindset that we came into the game with, we definitely wanted a clean sheet, before the game we all knew we wanted it so it’s a great feeling to achieve that goal.

“The confidence in the team is good, we know we are good enough and the team spirit that we’ve been able to develop over the season has been brilliant, from the start of 2022 we’ve just clicked.

"I think this was right up there with our best performances in terms of getting the goals and a clean sheet. We have had back-to-back away wins where we’ve had to stay over.

"It’s tough, the team knows they have to prepare themselves well but having the home comfort next week will help and hopefully we can get the result to prove that.”
