PREVIEW: Swans U18s v Cardiff U18s
9th January 2015
The Under-18s return to league action on Friday when they host Cardiff City at Landore (7pm).
Both sides have enjoyed a break from competitive action over the Christmas and New Year period, while the two teams will be looking to pick up where they left off in 2014.
The Swans suffered their first defeat in nine matches with a 2-1 reverse at Millwall just before the festive break, while Cardiff have lost just once in their last eight in all competitions.
Meanwhile, both the Swans and Cardiff are battling on three fronts with their Development League Two South programme adding to commitments in both the FA Youth Cup and FAW Youth Cup.
"Both teams are very similar," said coach Cameron Toshack. "Cardiff, like ourselves, are also through to the next round of the FA Youth Cup so it is two evenly matched sides.
"But the players have done well in training since they have returned and we hope they can transfer that into Friday's game.
"It would be great to see a few people down there to support us. The players have played and performed well recently, and it will be interesting to see how they fare after a break."
Admission to Landore is FREE, but there is no parking on site.
