Preview | Abergavenny v Swansea City Ladies

3rd November 2019
Swansea City Ladies 16x9

After putting an end to Cardiff City’s 100 per cent record last weekend, Swansea City Ladies put theirs on the line once again as they make the away trip to Abergavenny today in the Welsh Premier Women's League Cup (2pm).

This will be the Swans’ third away match of the season after a 1-0 win on the opening day against defending champions Cardiff Met, which was closely followed by a successful 3-0 victory at Llandudno.

Now they visit the Pen y Pound stadium in Monmouthshire with Ian Owen's side in formidable form so far - scoring 22 goals and keeping five clean sheets in five matches in all competitions.

And Owen has put their defensive record down to the entire squad’s efforts.

“The whole team works hard defensively and our record over the years has been fantastic,” he said.

“Our expectations for the girls are always high. We had a good pre-season and we carried that forward into the new season.

“We are on a good run of form at the moment but we need to be consistent and remain focused.

“Abergavenny are a good side and we will need to be at our very best on Sunday.”

Summer signing Deanna Lewis goes into the game in great form, with the goalkeeper yet to concede a goal this term.

“This has filled me with a lot of confidence going into Sunday’s game,” said the 17-year-old. “I have good confidence in myself and the team to not concede a goal.”

The side have no injury concerns meaning everybody is available for selection for Sunday’s match.
