Preview | Burnley U21s v Swansea City U21s

30th April

Swansea City Under-21s are on the road for the final time this season as they travel to Lancashire to take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday afternoon. (2pm kick-off).

The Swans will look to build on the dominant performance they put in against Professional Development League north champions Sheffield United at the Stadium last week.

However, the age-grade side have lost their last two fixtures away from home against Millwall and Barnsley respectively.

The Clarets come into this fixture on the back of a 2-1 victory over Colchester United, and still have hopes of securing a place in the play-offs.

Pre-match views

Coach Anthony Wright: "I was so pleased with the way we conducted ourselves, moved the ball and passed against Sheffield United.

"And that's something we'll keep building on towards Burnley. We've played them in the cup twice this season and they were two high-scoring games.

'Again, it's always a great opportunity to play at a stadium for the boys. It's a long trip but we'll prepare like we always do."

Swansea City Under-21s concluded their Premier League Cup campaign as goals from a trialist, Tarrelle Whittaker and Iwan Morgan secured a share of the spoils when they last travelled to face Burnley.

Michael Mellon netted a hat-trick for the hosts, including the first two goals of the game as the Clarets surged into an early lead, but a fine Swansea fightback meant Burnley's hopes of progressing to the knock-out stages were over.

The Swans knew they would not be able to advance prior to kick-off, but there were plenty of positives to take from a brave showing after an early setback.
