Pre-match views

Coach Anthony Wright: "The end of the season is approaching and we've got two long trips left.

"We've had two great performances to take into the game, we want to be able to back up a really good performance last time out.

"Peterborough were a tough side last year, and they were on home turf in tough conditions, but we'll make no excuses."

Swansea City Under-21s had to settle for a point as goals from Josh Thomas and Tarrelle Whittaker weren't enough to see off Peterborough in a remarkable game including three second-half penalties.

In-form striker Thomas opened the scoring after a goalless first period, before Peterborough were awarded two penalties in quick succession.

Joseph Taylor was denied by Remy Mitchell for the first of them, before Charlie O’Connell made no mistake with his own effort from 12 yards.

Whittaker converted from the spot to get his second goal in as many games to restore Swansea’s lead.

However, Taylor would have the last word as he scored Peterborough’s equaliser 15 minutes from time.

Swansea City Under-21s: Remy Mitchell, Kai Ludvigsen, Harry Jones, Joel Cotterill, Brandon Cooper (captain) (Seb Dabrowski 65), Kyrell Wilson (Joe Thomas 52), Cameron Congreve (Ruben Davies 67), Sam Leverett, Josh Thomas, Ben Lloyd, Tarrelle Whittaker.

Unused Subs: Ben Hughes, Corey Hurford.
