Llewellyn rues "disappointing" defeat
13th April 2015
Chris Llewellyn felt the Under-21s didn't do themselves justice in Monday's 1-0 defeat against Millwall at the Liberty Stadium.
The development squad suffered only their second home defeat of the season as Noah Chesmain's second-half strike earned all three points for the Lions.
The Swans couldn't follow up the recent victory over Leeds as they look to book their place in the end of season play-offs, and Llewellyn reflected on a disappointing night in SA1.
"We didn't reach the heights we have in recent weeks," he said. "I didn't think we moved the ball quick enough, and it was disappointing overall.
"We enjoyed long spells of possession without any real cutting edge around the box.
"But the longer we are on top it gives the opposition a chance to nick something and they scored a good goal.
"Having said that, there were some positives in that we had four Under-18 players on the pitch.
"But give them some credit, they came with a game plan and stuck to it and got the three points."
The Under-21s now have two league games remaining, starting with a trip to rivals Cardiff next Monday (April 20).
The two sides go head-to-head in the capital with Cardiff still hopeful of making the top two in Development League Two South.
"Our target this year was to get into the play-offs, we are still in with a shout," said Llewellyn.
"These players need to develop in situations where there is something riding on the game, and there's no better situation than going to Cardiff needing to win.
"I'm sure the boys will rise to the occasion and we'll go and do a job."
