Preview | Cardiff Met Women vs Swansea City Ladies

5th November 2022
Swans Ladies Shoot out

Swansea City Ladies return to Genero Adran Premier action as they travel to Cardiff Met Women on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

The Swans were set to return to action on Wednesday against Abergavenny but the game was postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

Swansea will be looking to return to winning ways in the league after being held to a 2-2 draw in their last game against Aberystwyth.

Cardiff Met currently sit one place above third-placed Swansea in the Genero Adran Premier with a two-point advantage, winning all of their games since suffering defeat to the Swans at the Stadium on the opening weekend.

They will be meeting for the third time this season, with both sides having a win a piece to their name, with the Swans coming out on top in the season opener before Met got their revenge on penalties in the cup.

Pre-match views

Ceri Phillips vs Cardiff Met Women

Swansea City Ladies head coach Ceri Phillips: “We played really well against them last time out, I felt we controlled large parts of the game, unfortunately we just didn’t take our chances.

“Straight into this game now we want to carry on in the same vein really, there’s no room for complacency, we need to try and be more clinical and positive when we get chances.

“It’s important that we manage Stacey John-Davis back into it after the injury she had, she’s keen and raring to go and it’s great to have her back, but we have to think long term and make sure that she’s right.

“It’s great to be having players coming back slowly but surely, hopefully we’ll be back to having our full squad back before too long.”

Previous meeting

Stacey John-Davis vs Cardiff Met

The two sides met just one week ago, with Cardiff Met coming out on top on penalties following a goalless draw.

Katy Hosford and a returning Stacey John-Davis both struck the woodwork for the Swans who dominated play throughout, but they couldn’t find a breakthrough and so it went to penalties.

After a perfect start to the shoot-out, Jess Williams would strike the crossbar with her penalty, allowing Stephanie Turner to convert and send her side through.
