Swansea City Under-21s are back in Professional Development League action on Tuesday afternoon (2pm) as they travel to Cambridgeshire to take on Peterborough United.

Jon Grey's and Anthony's Wright's side come into the fixture on the back of a handsome 3-0 win against Wigan Athletic last Monday at the Stadium.

Peterborough United will be looking to snatch their first victory of the season after suffering two defeats in their opening three games. The Posh currently sit in seventh in the PDL North division. 


Swansea City Under-21s' coach Jon Grey: "It’s two long away trips for us now, a lot of time on the bus, we’ll continue to work and do what we’re doing.

"They’ve worked ever so hard over the last eight to 10 weeks so we gave them a few days off in preparation for the Peterborough game.

"We want to be able to back up a really good performance last time out."

Tarrelle Whittaker.

Swansea Under-23s were held to a draw in their last meeting against Peterborough as a late equaliser rescued a point for the visiting Posh at Landore.

The Swans were put a goal ahead by Tarrelle Whittaker, as he converted from the penalty spot just three minutes in.

The hosts maintained control for the rest of the first half, but the Posh ramped up the pressure after the break to make the Swans work to stay ahead.

An impressive display from Lewis Webb and the Swansea backline looked set to give the Swans their first clean sheet of the season, until late sub Emmanuel Ogbonna rescued a point for the visitors in injury time.
