Preview | Swansea City U18s v Colchester United U18s

15th February
Aimar Govea

Swansea City Under-18s are in Professional Development League action on Friday afternoon when they welcome Colchester United to Landore Training Ground (1pm).

The game is free to attend and supporters can gain access to the site from midday.

The Swans will be hoping to get back to winning ways having lost their last four league games.

It's the Swans final game before their Professional Development League Cup quarter-final against Sheffield United on Wednesday.

Visitors Colchester, meanwhile, sit bottom of the PDL South division, having drawn three of their last five fixtures. The Essex-based side suffered a heavy 10-1 defeat to Millwall last time out.


Pre-match views

Coach Jarred Harvey: "We were disappointed with the result against Millwall last time out and we've been working on elements that need improving.

Hopefully, Friday will be another chance to give a lot of younger players and those returning from injuries some much-needed minutes while some players are away on international duty with Wales."

Swansea City Under-18s suffered defeat against a clinical Colchester United side when the U's last visited SA1 in the Professional Development League.

The Swans initially kept possession well against the visitors high press in the early exchanges, but two goals in quick succession shortly before half-time through Samson Uwandu turned the game on its head.

Jamie Arnold extended the lead further just after the break before Colchester captain Bayan Aman completed the scoring with less than 10 minutes remaining.

Swansea City Under-18s: Kit Margetson, Sam Parker, Zane Myers (Ramon Rees-Siso 82’), Arthur Parker (Thomas Woodward 62’), Jada Mawongo (David Roberts 65’), Richard Faakye, Josh Carey (captain), Jacob Cook, Geoff Bony, Aimar Govea, Rohan Davies.
