Preview | Swansea City U18s v Queens Park Rangers U18s

10th April
Rohan Davies Cele

Swansea City Under-18s return to Professional Development League action on Tuesday morning as they welcome Queens Park Rangers Under-18s to Landore Training Ground. (11am kick-off).

The young Swans will look to continue their fine run of form after being undefeated in their last five games, picking up a 3-1 win against Hull City last time out thanks to goals from Rohan Davies, Iwan Morgan and Thomas Woodward. 

Rangers currently sit one place and one point below the Swans in the south table. The visitors have only won two of their last five league outings, which came against Watford and Ipswich Town respectively.

The reverse fixture saw Swansea City produce an outstanding second-half comeback. Despite goals from Geoff Bony and Iwan Morgan, the Swans had headed into the interval 4-2 down after a brace from Kieran Petrie and goals from Sam Sackey and Youssef Yahyaoui for the R's.

But the Swans responded in magnificent fashion, in-form striker Morgan netting twice to complete his hat-trick, with Yori Griffith also on the scoresheet in a nine-goal thriller in west London.


Pre-match views:

Coach Darren Davies: "We're reaching the final stages of the season now, and the games are starting to come thick and fast.

"We've put some real performances in lately, and I am really proud of what the lads are doing.

"The reverse fixture was probably one of the most entertaining games that I've seen this season, it was a real push from the boys."

Swansea City Under-18s thumped QPR 5-0 in the Professional Development League the last time the two sides met in SA1.

Two goals for Kyrell Wilson, as well as strikes from Geoff Bony, Iwan Morgan and debutant Corey Hurford claimed three points for the Swans.

The Swans came straight out of the blocks as Kyrell Wilson opened the scoring after just five minutes, breaking down the right before firing past the goalkeeper from close range.

Geoff Bony doubled the lead for the home side ten minutes before the break as he found space down the right before sliding the ball past the goalkeeper.

Iwan Morgan got involved in the action as he marked his birthday with a goal. Josh Carey slid a great ball through for Morgan who finished well from close range with the last kick of the first half, making it three goals in three games in 2022.

The hosts' onslaught continued into the second half as Wilson picked up his second goal of the afternoon, firing a powerful shot from the edge of the box to make it four.

But it would be Hurford who would find the fifth, the wing back making a fantastic run through the QPR defence before a tackle rebounded off his leg and into the back of the net.
