Llewellyn: Draw was a fair result
9th March 2015
Chris Llewellyn admitted that a draw was a fair result as the Under-21s were held by Bristol City at Landore on Monday.
In a game of few clear-cut chances, the visitors struck a post in the first half while the Swans were dealt a blow when the returning Lee Lucas was forced off through injury midway through the first period.
The hosts stepped up the pressure in the second half without really testing City goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott, while the visitors defended well to earn a share of the spoils.
The result keeps the development squad top of the table as well as losing just once in their last 15 league games.
"I think a draw was a fair result," said Llewellyn. "They came with a game plan and seemed happy with a point, and we didn't do enough to merit the three points.
"The injury to Lee (Lucas) knocked us for a little while and everyone was looking forward to having him back, so for him to get injured on his first game back was unfortunate.
"We had some decent spells of possession throughout the game but didn't really test their goalkeeper properly all night.
"It was one of those nights where we didn't really create too much and that's something we need to work on."
With a number of players out on loan with clubs in the Football League, the Under-21s included Keston Davies, Owain Jones, Dan James and Stephen Fallon from the club's Under-18 side.
All four players featured against Bristol City and Llewellyn was pleased with the squad's application.
"We had three second-year scholars playing, as well a first-year too, and the lads put in a good shift," he said.
"The Under-18s have had a good season and that shows when they have four players featuring for the Under-21s.
"It's about development but we like to win as well, but overall it was disappointing not to get the three points."
