Preview: AFC Wimbledon v Swans U21s

18th September 2018

Swansea City Under-21s are back in Checkatrade Trophy action this evening when they take on AFC Wimbledon (7.45pm).

Here is all you need to know ahead of tonight’s game at Kingsmeadow.


The Swans are hoping to get their first points on the board in this season’s competition.

A youthful side were beaten 5-0 by Stevenage in their opening game and need to win this evening to remain in contention for the knockout stages.

Wimbledon enjoyed a penalty shootout victory over Charlton in their first match of this year’s Checkatrade Trophy.

Neal Ardley’s side, who are 16th in League One, come into the game off the back of Saturday’s 3-2 defeat by Scunthorpe United.

Pre-match view

Swans Under-23s coach Cameron Toshack: "We've spoken to the players about how it’s all about them recognising their individual challenges on the pitch as well as the collective challenges. The more individual match-ups we can win on the pitch, the better the collective will do."


Wimbledon's top scorer this season, Joe Pigott, is likely to carry the Dons' greatest threat this evening.

The striker will be hoping to continue his impressive start to the season which has seen him find the net five times in all competitions.
