 "It's the first home game of the season, they boys are in good spirits and look forward to implementing what we've been working on the past week.

Swansea City 1 - 1 Coventry City

Swansea City Under-18s shared the points with Coventry City Under-18s, with both sides netting in an entertaining draw at Landore.

Byron Anthony’s side opened the scoring through Iwan Morgan, who had scored the late winner in the side’s first fixture of the season against Barnsley Under-18s, but could not secure all three points following Coventry’s equaliser.

After an encouraging first 20 minutes, striker Morgan put the hosts up a goal to the good, getting on the end of Charlie Veevers’ slick threaded pass and slotting the ball to the left of the keeper.

But the Sky Blues answered back just five minutes later, with midfielder Craig Hewitt skipping past a white shirt and firing home from long range, placing the ball just a hair out of keeper Ben Hughes’ reach.
