Swansea City Under-18s are back in Professional Development League action on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Charlton Athletic to Landore Training Ground (2pm kick-off).

The age-grade side will look to continue their form after Cameron Llewellyn's strike gave the Swans a 1-0 victory over Coventry City last time out.

The young Addicks - who have won the PDL South division twice in consecutive seasons - will look to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign.


Pre-match views

Coach Ollie Jefferies: "Charlton are a tough and physical side. They were hard competition when we hosted them last year, but again, we'll stick to what we know and we'll go out there and play.

"We'll go into it with the same principles and style of play we've implemented so far this season. The boys have been fantastic, and we're looking forward to it."

Swansea City Under-18s fell to defeat despite a fine showing against reigning Professional Development League champions Charlton in an eight-goal thriller the last time the sides met at Landore.

A first-half double from Geoff Bony had put the Swans on level terms at the break, with the side showing good character to twice come from behind.

But the young Addicks proved too strong as their clinical finishing proved the difference in the second half. Kai Enslin scored a hat-trick, with Patrick Casey netting a brace. 

Swansea's Rohan Davies pulled one back in the dying minutes of the game, but it wasn't enough to earn the share of the spoils. 


Swansea City Under-18s: Evan Watts (C) (Kit Margetson 32), Zane Myers (Rohan Davies, 82), Richard Faakye, Arthur Parker (David Roberts 72), Jada Mawongo, Josh Carey, Dan Watts, Kyrell Wilson, Geoff Bony (Aimar Govea, 82), Iwan Morgan, Seb Dabrowski.
