Llewellyn hails Under-21s' mentality
3rd November 2014
Chris Llewellyn hailed his side's mentality after the Under-21s secured an impressive victory over Charlton at Landore.
Two goals from Kenji Gorre set the Swans on their way to a 2-1 win against a Charlton side that had won their previous four matches without conceding.
The result followed on from last week's draw with Queens Park Rangers, where Llewellyn's side had led 2-0 before being pegged back for a draw.
The youngsters found themselves with a two-goal lead once again against Charlton, this time holding out for a crucial three points.
And Llewellyn was delighted to see his side learn from previous mistakes against the Addicks.
"It was a positive result and I thought we deserved to win," he said. "We played well in the first half, could have scored more, and I said to the players at half time that we didn't want to end the game having dropped more points.
"I was glad we scored the second goal early, but I'm also glad in a way that they scored as well.
"That gave us a chance to implement what we have been working on this week in terms of managing the game in a stressful environment.
"But it was nice for us to get over the line and secure the three points."
The win also extended the Swans' unbeaten run to six games ahead of another home game against Brentford next week.
"Our form has been good," said Llewellyn. "That's six games unbeaten now - three wins and three draws.
"We should have won more games and secured more points but I can't remember the last the Under-21s went six games unbeaten so it's great to see the players enjoying some success."
