Ruben Davies | We want to keep our unbeaten home run going

31st October 2023
Davies and Congreve celebrate

Swansea City striker Ruben Davies was thrilled to return to goal-scoring ways after a brace against Charlton Athletic in the Professional Development League on Monday afternoon.

All the goals came in the first half as the home side raced to a 5-0 lead at Landore. Liam Smith opened the scoring inside three minutes before Cameron Congreve doubled the advantage from the spot.

Kyle Naughton volleyed in a third before a second penalty was dispatched by Davies. The striker then got his second before half-time when he finished off a sweeping Swans move.

The victory over the Addicks extended the age-grade sides' incredible unbeaten home run, with the Swans last experiencing defeat on home turf in November 2022 against Coventry City.

It was his second brace in two games, after his two goals in the Swans' 6-0 victory against Briton Ferry Llansawel in the Nathaniel MG Cup last week.

And Davies was glad to put his injury he suffered at the beginning of the season behind him as he eyes up more vital minutes for the young Swans.

"It was a good team performance, we bossed both halves and in the first half we had the five goals to show for that," said Davies.

"We could have scored a lot more in the second-half, but I think Charlton came at us a bit more after half-time, which is what we expected.

"But overall, we all fed off each other, we didn't take our foot off the gas and we got the result we deserved. 

"We've done so well to keep a good run of form at home, and that's something we are motivated to maintain.

"It was brilliant to have some senior faces drop in, it's good for us to learn off of them and set the standards, and ultimately, they were all crucial in the performance.

"I was disappointed not the get a hat-trick, but it's another two goals which I'm happy with. I want to keep that momentum going after a slow start to the season due to my injury."
