Goalkeeper Remy Mitchell hopes he and Swansea City Under-21s can carry their excellent form over the second half of the season into their finale against Birmingham City at the Stadium on Wednesday.

Mitchell helped the Swans to a 3-1 victory over Bristol City on Friday night.

The Swans completely dominated the opening half and led at the break after Josh Thomas and Joe Thomas netted a goal apiece in the space of 10 minutes.  

Ruben Davies proved to be a busy man as he saw numerous chances blocked either side of the interval, but Joel Cotterill's spot-kick sealed the deserved three points with 20 minutes to go. 

Seb-Palmer-Houlden pulled one back at the death, drilling home past the outstretched hand of Mitchell to deny him a clean sheet, but it was only a consolation.

Mitchell, 19, joined Swansea City in the summer of 2022 from Arsenal, and feels he has improved as his first season in SA1 has gone on and he's gelled with his new team-mates.

"The boys did really good again on Friday, and we were in control. There were some great team goals again, and we could have had more," said Mitchell.

"It was annoying to concede right at the end. As a goalkeeper, all you ever want is to keep those clean sheets and it was pretty gutting to concede late on.

"But it's my first season at the club, and I'm loving it. In the second half of the season I've hit a really good run of form, playing weekly and making some crucial saves.

"We've been playing some brilliant football recently, scoring amazing team goals with 10 or more passes in the build-up, and that's just the identity of this club.

"We've got one more game left in the season at the Stadium, it's always an honour to play at these types of grounds and we seem to be in pretty good form there.

"We've been brilliant at the stadium all year, and the fans that come along give us a real boost. It's so enjoyable to play on that pitch."
