Preview | Bristol City U23s vs Swansea City U23s
Swansea City Under-23s travel to face Bristol City Under-23s in the Professional Development League on Tuesday (2pm kick-off).
The Swans go into the game following a 1-0 defeat to Premier League 2 side West Ham United, who were bolstered by the addition of Andriy Yarmolenko, where they gave a good account of themselves.
In their previous Professional Development League outing, the Swans were held to a 1-1 draw against title hopefuls Charlton Athletic, Jaden Forrester’s first-half goal not enough to earn three points following the Addicks late equaliser.
Bristol City go into the game following a 3-3 draw with league leaders Cardiff City, which kept their title chase alive.
The Robins currently sit in third in the Professional Development League South group, eight points behind the league leaders with two games in hand.
Swansea City U23s assistant coach Anthony Wright: “There’s nothing better for the lads than playing football, the boys have recovered and have worked hard on the training ground ready for the game.
“Bristol City are floating around the top of our league at the moment, we picked up a draw against them not long ago and we’re hoping we can make it a win this time.
“We go into the game with a lot of confidence from the last game and from the last couple of weeks, and we go into this game looking for a result.”
In the last meeting between these two sides, the Swans came back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw.
The Robins found themselves 2-0 down with goals at the start of each half, first-team squad member Tommy Conway and Sam Bell both finding the back of the net.
Sam Leverett pulled one back for the Swans just five minutes later, cutting in onto his left foot and finding the bottom corner for his goal for the development side.
Jaden Forrester would soon make it 2-2 with his fourth goal in four games, Lincoln Mcfayden finding the forward in the box before a smart finish secured the equaliser.
