Jack Evans believes Swansea City Under-23s need to be more ruthless as they aim to get back to winning ways in Premier League 2 Division Two against Reading.

The development side travel to the Madejski Stadium on Monday having collected four points from as many games at the start of the season.

Gary Richards and Cameron Toshack’s side began the campaign with a 1-0 win away at Norwich, before holding Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw at Landore.

However, they were punished for a slow start in their 3-2 defeat against Middlesbrough, whilst two late goals saw them beaten 4-3 by Stoke at the Liberty.

Nevertheless Evans, who has worn the captain’s armband since his return after completing successful treatment for cancer, believes there are positives to focus on during these early stages of the season. 

But the midfielder knows that the young Swans must be more decisive in the final third as they aim to take maximum points in Berkshire.

“Overall, we’ve had a pretty decent start. We’ve done well in all of our games so far, barring a slight blip against Middlesbrough,” the 21-year-old said.

“I think we’ve been unlucky in our past couple of games. I felt like we deserved to win against Stoke because we played quite well then, too.

“It is still very early in the season so we’re all still getting into our stride and building our understanding of each other within the team.

“I think we need to be more ruthless and look to kill teams off when we’re on top in games. We also need to be stronger towards the end of matches. 

“We’ll continue to improve but we just want to get back to winning ways.”
