Swansea City Ladies are back at home today for the first time since March 28, as they welcome Cascade to Llandarcy (2pm).

The Swans can move into pole position to retain their Welsh Premier Women’s League title.

They currently sit in second place, level on points with Cardiff Met and have a game in hand. A victory or a draw for the defending champions will send them top of the league table with Cardiff Met not in action this weekend.

Sunday’s opponents in Cascade are currently in a relegation battle and are fighting to retain their spot in the top-flight.

Pre-match views

Colin Staples: “They have had more games since we last played them, so they would have learnt more about the league.

“Every team is a threat because they all have their different ways, if they decide to try and play against us just like any other team that tries to play against us, we can win.

“But when teams come along and defend it is then up to us figure out the puzzle.

“We never underestimate any opposition; everybody is on the same pitch for the same reason, which is to win a game of football.”

Remember the last time?

The reverse fixture saw the Swans defeat Cascade convincingly 4-0 at Ystrad Mynach in March.

The Swans had sealed the three points by half-time as they led by a comfortable three-goal lead; the first half goals coming from Kelly Adams and two by Katy Hosford.

It turned out to be a day to remember for Hosford as she completed her hat-trick with 15 minutes left on the clock.
