Llewellyn praises Under-21s after victory

14th February 2015

Chris Llewellyn praised the Under-21s as they maintained top spot with a 4-2 victory over Brentford at Griffin Park.
After a goalless first half, the Swans took the lead through a Maros Tebar own goal before Kenji Gorre doubled the advantage in style with a curling effort into the top corner.
The Bees pulled a goal back through midfielder Josh Laurent and after Giancarlo Gallifuoco headed in to reclaim the two-goal lead, Laurent again netted to set up a nervous finale
But substitute Alex Samuel sealed the win in added time and Llewellyn was delighted with the three points after the recent draw against Crystal Palace.
"The Palace game felt like a defeat but the boys responded in a positive manner," he said.
"The first half was a tight affair - we slightly edged it - but in the second half we came out really positively, scored an early goal and created numerous other chances.
"We could have scored four or five in the space of 20-25 minutes, but we have a habit of letting teams back into games.
"They got one put of the blue to put us on the back foot but we responded well again to get the third, then our achilles heel returns and we concede from a set piece.
"We need to do better but we also realise we're not the biggest of teams. But hopefully we will improve in that aspect.
"Overall, t was another all-round good performance and the three points keeps us top."
