Report | QPR Under-23s 0 Swansea City Under-23s 2
Swansea City Under-23s claimed all three points in the Professional Development as they beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0 in London.
Two quickfire goals from Jaden Forrester and Sam Leverett were enough to claim victory for the Swans.
The win sees Swansea climb up to seventh in the Professional Development League - leap frogging QPR in the table.
Swansea opened the scoring just 10 minutes in. A high press won the ball back in the QPR half and that allowed Dylan Morgan to slide Forrester through on goal, but he was brought down by the goalkeeper Max Litte. Forrester stepped up to the spot and buried the penalty into the bottom right corner.
Just two minutes later Sam Leverett doubled the Swans' advantage as he fired Harry Jones’ low cross from the edge of the box into the bottom corner.
Swansea continued to cause trouble down QPR's right flank throughout the first half, with Cameron Congreve’s cross finding Morgan in the box, but he couldn’t get enough on his header.
The Swans continued to push for more in the second half despite the poor weather conditions.
Jacob Jones found Harry Jones in the box with a great cross, but the right-back fired his volley over the bar.
Morgan almost turned provider for Forrester again, his whipped free-kick finding the striker, but the latter couldn’t find the net in what proved the last real action of the game.
