Preview | Cardiff City Women vs Swansea City Ladies

14th April
Celebration Swans Ladies

Swansea City Ladies play their final game of the 2022-23 season as they travel to face champions Cardiff City Women at the Cardiff City Stadium. (3pm kick-off).

The Swans will be looking to earn their first win over the Bluebirds this season, having lost once and drawn twice against their local rivals.

Despite a strong showing throughout Phase Two of the Genero Adran Premier, the Swans suffered a 2-1 defeat to The New Saints Women last time out, only their second league defeat of the season, and will be looking to bounce back this weekend.

Cardiff City have not lost a league game this season and will be hoping to remain unbeaten in the final match. 

Their only defeat came in the Genero Adran Trophy final losing 3-1 to Cardiff Met Women.

Ceri Phillips Swans Ladies

Swansea City Ladies head coach Ceri Phillips: “We want to finish the season strongly, that’s always been the case during Phase Two.

“Last time out versus TNS was a disappointment so it’s important we finish the season in a positive way and give us something to build on going into next season.

“We have been extremely fortunate to have played at our stadium twice this season, so we have had the experience in terms of the occasion. This time around it is away from home, but we are looking forward to it and want to put in a good showing in front of all those in attendance.

“I thought we did enough to win last time around, but it wasn’t to be. It's a case of building on what we’ve learnt from all three fixtures so far and putting it all in to one final performance to try to finish the season on a high.”


Last time out

Stacey John-Davis closes down the ball against Cardiff City

The two sides last met in February, with a Cardiff goal in the seventh minute of injury snatched three points away from the Swans.

Stacey John-Davis put the Swans ahead, glancing home Chloe Chivers’ cross just before half-time.

But the Bluebirds responded just after the break with Danielle Broadhurst converting a Ffion Price cross to level.

A second by John-Davis gave the Swans the lead once again, this time converting from the spot. But it would be late heartbreak for the Swans when Phoebie Poole scored a late equaliser.
