Swansea City Under-18s welcome Millwall to Landore Training Ground on Saturday afternoon for their Professional Development League clash (2pm).

Entry for the game is free, and supporters will be allowed onsite from 1pm.

The Swans will look to bounce back from their defeat at Cardiff City last time out, where a second-half Trey George hat-trick completed the comeback for the Bluebirds after goals from Thomas Woodward and Rohan Davies had the Swans 2-0 up until the 70th minute.

The Lions have won two out of their past five fixtures in all competitions. Those two victories came against Colchester United, with Millwall winning 5-1 on both occasions. 


Pre-match views

Coach Ollie Jefferies: "We'll regroup after the Cardiff game, where we had a group of disappointed boys afterwards.

"Millwall are a well-coached side, and we'll make sure to work on areas we weren't too good at on the weekend and we'll have a good training week. 

"We're all pleased with the performances and principles the boys have shown over recent weeks, and hopefully we can make sure we're proud of what we do on the pitch on Saturday, no matter the result."

Swansea City 2 Millwall 2

Swansea City Under-18s were denied victory as a late Kavalli Heywood strike gave Millwall a share of the spoils the last time the Lions visited Landore.

The Swans had taken the lead through Geoff Bony in the first-half, but Millwall levelled early in the second half through Harry Hearn.

The hosts responded with Iwan Morgan netting his 18th goal of the season, but Heywood salvaged a point for the Lions 10 minutes from time.

Swansea looked most likely to find an opener, with Morgan finding the side-netting from Bony’s pass as they pressed again.

And the goal duly arrived as Morgan got into space down the right and laid the ball on for Bony to turn in from close range.

It ensured Swansea held the interval lead, but they were pegged back before five minutes of the second half had elapsed, Hearn drilling a low strike into the net.

It was the duo of Bony and Morgan who were to fire the Swans ahead once again. Bony dug out a cross after bring crowded out on the edge of the area, and Morgan got ahead of his marker to finish. 

But Heywood had the last say levelling the score late on.

Swansea City Under-18s: Kit Margetson, Sam Parker, Arthur Parker, Richard Faakye, Jada Mawongo, Josh Carey, Thomas Woodward, Aimar Govea (Cameron Llewellyn 70), Geoff Bony, Iwan Morgan (Rohan Davies 83), Zane Myers (David Roberts 86).
