Swansea City Under-18s welcome Burnley to Landore Training Ground in their Professional Development League clash on Saturday morning (11am).

Entry for this fixture is free, and spectators are permitted on site from 10am.

Last time out, the Swans returned to winning ways in Lancashire following a 2-1 victory over Fleetwood Town thanks to goals from Sammy Henia-Kamau and Thomas Woodward.

Burnley, meanwhile, have lost just one in their last five league fixtures, suffering a 4-0 defeat to Hull City in that solitary reverse.

This is the young Swans' last outing before they turn their attention to the PDL Cup final against Millwall at the Den on Wednesday night.


Pre-match views

Coach Jarred Harvey: "The boys have shown great improvement over the last two months, and the results and performances have reflected that. 

"This game will be a good run out in preparation for the final, which we're all looking forward to, it's the biggest game for these boys in their careers so far.

"The end of the season is coming fast, and we have the opportunity to finish strongly in the coming weeks."

Swansea City Under-18s grabbed a point at Burnley as two late goals gave the visitors a share of the spoils in their last meeting in the north-west.

The Clarets had led through a Vernon Masara goal, only for Geoff Bony to level for the Swans.

However, further goals for Ryan Tioffo and Joe Westley put Burnley in firm control and seemingly on course for three points, only for Kyrell Wilson and Iwan Morgan to strike in the final moments.

Swansea City Under-18s: Evan Watts (captain), Kyrell Wilson, Richard Faakye (Arthur Parker 60), Seb Dabrowski, Jada Mawongo, Josh Carey, Dan Watts, Aimar Govea (Sam Parker 55), Geoff Bony (Rohan Davies 71), Iwan Morgan, Zane Myers (David Roberts 60).
