Swansea City Under-18s are on the road for the final time this season as they take on Peterborough United in the Professional Development League on Saturday (11am kick-off).

The young Swans will look to make it four wins from four after beating Sheffield United 3-1 last time out at Landore, thanks to goals from Kyrell Wilson (2) and Iwan Morgan.

Peterborough - who are fighting for a play-off position in the north table - have lost just once in their past five league outings which have featured high-scoring affairs against Colchester United and Burnley respectively. 

The fixture will take place at Idverde Training Ground, the first-team training base of the Posh.

Coach Darren Davies: "It's our last away game of the season, and it's a long one.

"The boys have been in a good space for a long time now. It's all about having another enjoyable working week ahead of the game.

"They're up there in terms of physicality, so it will be a difficult one, but one we will have prepared for."

Swansea City Under-18s fought back from a two-goal deficit to earn a draw away at Peterborough on their last visit to the Idverde Training Ground.

The Swans' unbeaten start to the season looked in danger when they trailed 2-0 after 13 minutes as Emmanuel Ogbonna and Lewis Darlington netted.

Zane Myers pulled a goal back but a Darlington penalty had the hosts 3-1 up at the interval.

However, Byron Anthony’s side rallied bravely with Cameron Congreve and Geoff Bony scoring after the break to preserve their unbeaten record and secure a point in an entertaining encounter.

Swansea City U18s: Ben Hughes, Filip Lissah, Zane Myers, Charlie Veevers, David Roberts, Ryan Bassett, Kyrell Wilson, Josh Edwards, Iwan Morgan, Dan Watts, Cameron Congreve.
