Goalkeeper Kit Margetson felt Swansea City Under-18s' victory and clean sheet against Sheffield United in their Professional Development League Cup quarter-final was testament to the squad’s united effort.

The impressive 3-0 away win meant the Swans progressed to the last four, where they will face Watford on home turf.

The Swans found themselves 1-0 up inside a minute, the referee awarding a penalty for foul on Seb Dabrowski in the area which was converted by Sammy Henia-Kamau.

The hosts then went down to 10 men when Jayden Prunty was dismissed for an off-the-ball incident. 

The Blades still had their chances but a brilliant display from Wales youth international Margetson denied them, and the Swans went on to seal the win with further goals from Aimar Govea and Dabrowski.

But Margetson - who has recently returned from a wrist injury - was keen to share the credit.

"We knew the game was going to be tough, all the boys dug and did incredibly well. We're all buzzing to have reached the semi-finals," said Margetson.

"It's a great feeling to get a clean sheet, especially my first game back after injuring my wrist and now I've got to continue that work to contribute even more.

"But that's also credit to the boys at the back for being strong. We've all been working hard in training, and we prepared really well.

"I had to make a lot of saves during their spells, but that's my job and I'm happy to have contributed to the clean sheet.

"When they went down to 10 men, it did give us that extra push and the boys scored some really quality goals to get us over the line.

"We've got games coming thick and fast now, but before we can focus on the semi-final, we've got a trip to Ipswich to focus on."
