"We're all looking forward to it. At the moment, I'm always looking forward to watching the boys play and the stadium seems to be a place where we do so well."

Goalkeeper Remy Mitchell: "I've loved every time I've played at the stadium this season. It makes it much more special to play on that pitch.

Birmingham started strongly and effectively wrapped up the game inside the opening 25 minutes. 

Following Miguel Fernandez’s early free-kick, Josh Andrews doubled the lead after a quickfire counter-attack in the 20th minute, before Jack Concannon’s drilled strike completed the scoring.

Swansea City U23s: Jamie Searle, Ryan Bevan, Cian Williams, Jake Thomas, Jacob Jones, Erick Kenko, Morgan Clarke, Bradley Gibbings, Cameron Congreve (Adnaan Moti), Adrian Akande (Rio Campbell), Josh Thomas (Aaron Hillier).
