Swansea City Ladies travel to face Cyncoed at USW Sport Park today as the end of the Welsh Premier Women’s League campaign looms on the horizon (2:30pm).

Swansea come into the fixture on the back of picking up what could turn out to be a vital point against Cardiff Met in midweek, as the title race heats up between themselves and the Archers.

Meanwhile, Cyncoed are experiencing a difficult spell having not picked up a win in their last five matches.

Supporters can follow the action live on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru, with coverage beginning at 2pm.

Colin Staples: “Cyncoed are a difficult team to play against and have been well organised against us in both games so far irrespective of results. I expect no different on this occasion.

“When teams defend in numbers it is important to keep the ball and find that gap at the right time and make it count.

“All opposition are out to do well against us and that suits us as we perform better when the opposition make a game of it; there is no room for slip ups but we stay focused and calm.

“All publicity of the League is hugely beneficial and we take great pride in helping spread that publicity, with hopefully another positive performance against Cyncoed. We welcome the airing of the game across BBC Radio Wales and hopefully it will continue.”

Remember the last time?

The Swans eventually swept Cyncoed aside when they met at Llandarcy in March after a stubborn defensive first-half showing from the Mighty Oaks.

Swansea piled on the pressure in the first 45 minutes and got their noses in front just before the break as Laura Davies headed Tija Richardson’s cross home with conviction.

And a clinical second-half showing saw further goals come from Chloe Chivers, Emma Beynon, a brace from Tija Richardson and an own goal from Cyncoed’s Caitlin Meadows.
