Llewellyn targets top-two finish
24th March 2014
Swansea City's Under-21s are targeting a top-two finish in the Professional Development League Two table following their 3-0 home win over Millwall at Fairwood.
Ryan Hedges put the young Swans in front after just 12 minutes as he tapped home from close range before second-half goals from Gwion Edwards and substitute Kenji Gorre sealed a comfortable victory for the hosts in wet and windy conditions.
It means the Swans moved fourth in the table behind leaders Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers and Brighton - with the latter two playing tonight (Monday).
And Llewellyn was hugely pleased with his team's performance against the Lions, which built on the previous win over Brighton a fortnight ago.
"It was difficult conditions for both teams to play in, but I thought that worked in our advantage because it takes away the option to play it long," said the former Wales international.
"We had worked on a plan during the past week and we had watched a few of Millwall's last couple of games too, so we knew what we had to do to.
"Yes, the conditions can make it difficult but I thought we showed a lot of ambition and a will to pass the ball around as quickly as we could, and that pleased me.
"We did well in the first half and we deserved to take a lead into half-time, but we really stepped up a gear to dominate the second half.
"And, while winning is not the be all and end all at this stage of the boys' careers, it does breed confidence and I think we saw that out there today."
The U21s are next in action on Monday (March 31) against Crystal Palace at the Liberty (7pm).
