Preview | Coventry City U21s v Swansea City U21s

11th September 2023
CBS Arena

Swansea City Under-21s are on their travels as they get set to take on Coventry City at the CBS Arena in the Professional Development League on Tuesday afternoon (2pm kick-off).

Last time out, Swansea made it seven wins from seven at the Stadium after a comfortable 4-0 victory over Hull City, and will be keen to carry that some of form with them on the road.

The Swans will be looking to claim their first win away from home after losses against Barnsley and PDL North Champions Sheffield United in August.

The Sky Blues, meanwhile, have picked up just one win so far this season against Charlton Athletic, suffering defeats against Bournemouth, Queens Park Rangers and Ipswich Town.


Pre-match views

Under-21s coach Anthony Wright: "It's a new ground for a lot of the boys, again it's always a good experience for the players to play at a stadium.

"It's been a pleasure to watch them play at our stadium so far this season. We've been working hard on the training pitch and we really want to make sure we can start performing away from home."

Swansea City 2 Coventry City 3

Swansea City Under-21s saw their winning run come to an end as Coventry City came from behind to take all three points in their Professional Development League fixture at Landore last season.

An own goal and a curling strike from Tarrelle Whittaker had put the Swans two goals to the good at the break, and seemingly on their way to a sixth win in a row.

However, second-half goals from William Bapaga, Harrison Nee and Ricardo Dinanga saw the Sky Blues launch a fightback and snatch all three points.

Swansea City Under-21s: Ben Hughes, Joe Thomas, Kai Ludvigsen, Brandon Cooper (captain), Nathanael Ogbeta, Corey Hurford, Cameron Congreve, Joel Cotterill, Lincoln McFayden, Tarrelle Whittaker (Ben Lloyd 69), Josh Thomas.

Unused subs: Evan Watts, Iwan Morgan, Harry Jones, Kian Jenkins.
