Llewellyn delight for "outstanding" Swans
29th September 2014
Chris Llewellyn was delighted to see his Under-21 side get their reward after an "outstanding" 5-2 victory over Nottingham Forest.
The Swans turned in an impressive display at the City Ground, creating a host of chances in front of goal.
Henry Jones and Modou Barrow put the visitors 2-0 up within 15 minutes before Forest pulled one back through Oliver Burke.
Adam King scored from 30 yards to restore the two-goal advantage before the break, with birthday boy Kenji Gorre and Barrow grabbing his second to complete the rout.
And after games three games without a win, Llewellyn was pleased to see his side produce a victory in style.
"It was an outstanding performance," he said. "We started the game brightly and were rewarded with two good goals.
"We took our foot off the gas a little and let them back into it but we responded really well and Adam's goal was superb.
"We dictated the game from then on we could have scored a few more.
"But this performance has been coming and I'm delighted for the players. Everything clicked ad we were commanding all over the pitch."
Meanwhile, Modou Barrow's brace took his tally to four goals in five games since arriving from Ostersunds back in August.
"Modou has done really well since he's come in," said Llewellyn. "He has taken everything on board that we have given him tactically, and he is blessed with great pace.
"He takes on defenders and right now he is a wonderful asset to us.
"James Loveridge also deserves a mention as he was a constant threat all afternoon.
"He was unfortunate not to get a couple of goals himself but he was a real threat all game."
