Pre-match views

Swansea City Under-18s' coach Darren Davies: "We are playing against new opposition, as Exeter are not in our league. However, we did play them in pre-season, but this fixture will have more of a competitive edge to it.

"We are very complimentary of how they play, and it'll be a good game. We've been back to work, I have told the boys what we need to work on and everything we do on Saturday, will be based around that."
