Preview | Swansea City Women v Wrexham Women

10th March
Swans Women v Wrexham

Swansea City Women return to Genero Adran Premier action as they welcome Wrexham to Llandarcy Academy of Sport for their first game of phase two this afternoon (2pm kick-off).

The Swans go into the game looking to extend their unbeaten league run to eight games, having finished phase one with a 2-0 win over leaders Cardiff City.

Wrexham also come into the game in fine form, on the back of a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions. The Red Dragons have lost just three league games all season, having only lost to Cardiff City and Swansea.

The Swans will be looking to return to winning ways having suffered a 3-1 defeat to Cardiff in the Bute Energy Welsh Cup semi-final in their last outing.

Swansea City Women interim head coach Chris Church: “We’re looking forward to getting back to league action, we finished phase one strongly and hopefully that will stand us in good stead for phase two.

“Last Sunday was a painful experience for us all, we played great football, but it just didn’t come off, so the players will be chomping at the bit to right those wrongs.

“The team will take confidence from our last meeting with Wrexham, we’ve come a long way in a short space of time and hopefully that will continue.

“They are a team that can cause problems, they have some dangerous players, but we will be focusing on our performance and how we approach the game.”

The last meeting between the two sides saw 3,859 members of the Jack Army entertained by a 2-1 Swans win at the Stadium in November.

The Swans found themselves trailing at the break, Carra Jones scoring the rebound after Amber Lightfoot’s initial effort was saved by Claire Skinner.

But the leveller arrived in the 55th minute when Ellie Lake drove forward and took aim with her left foot and sent a low shot beyond the grasp of the keeper and into the bottom corner of the net.

Eleven minutes later, Katy Hosford took advantage of a defensive lapse to loft the ball over the advancing keeper and into the net after getting the better of a covering defender to earn three points for the Swans.
