Pre-match views

Coach Darren Davies: "Ipswich will be a tough one. They’re usually a big, tough physical team so we’ll have to find ways to cope with that, but primarily we’ll be focusing on ourselves.

"We’ll review our performances, focus on how we can get better as individuals and as a team because it’s all about us learning.

"We've got two games left now, and the boys have been brilliant the past two-and-a-half months. Hopefully, we can finish the season on a positive note."

Swansea City Under-18s fell to defeat against Ipswich Town Under-18s in the Professional Development League clash at St George's Park when they were last the designated home side against their East Anglian opponents.

Ipswich took the lead just four minutes in, and the Swans were then punished by a late first-half flurry that saw Ipswich go into the break 3-0 up with Ash Boatswain grabbing a brace and Dan Cousens also netting.

The Swans kept Ipswich quiet for most of the second half, but they would make it four thanks to a stunning volley from Jack Manly as they claimed all three points.
