Swansea City Ladies will be looking to continue their perfect start to this season as they travel to Maesdu Park in North Wales to face Llandudno Town this Sunday (2pm).

The Swans go into this weekend’s fixture on the back of a dominant performance after they defeated newly-promoted outfit Aberystwyth Town 3-0 at Llandarcy.

On the back of Swansea beginning the season with a perfect record from their opening two matches, manager Ian Owen is feeling optimistic but he isn’t underestimating the away trip to North Wales.

“We are in good form at the moment and I’m really pleased with the start to the season that we’ve had,” said Owen, who led his team to 6-0 and 4-0 victories over Llandudno last season.

“The performance against Aberystwyth was great.

“Three goals and another clean sheet showed the players are consistent in their performances which is what we are always looking for.

“Llandudno away is a tough one. It’s a long journey and opponents like them can ask a lot of questions of you, so it won’t be easy.

“Our attitude will need to be spot on if we are to do well on Sunday.”

The Swans have everybody available for selection with the likes of Wales international Chloe Chivers returning to action off the bench in the win versus Aberystwyth after her ACL injury.

Captain Alicia Powe, meanwhile, says that the mood within the squad is positive all around amongst their current run of good form as they face a Llandudno side who were beaten 10-0 by Cardiff City last time out.

“The girls trained hard preparing for the season and everybody is in good spirits ahead of the trip to North Wales,” she said.

“Llandudno are a good team, and we shouldn’t be complacent with their past results.”
