Sammy Wynne | We need to keep building this momentum

Swansea City Women’s midfielder Sammy Wynne hopes her side can continue building momentum as they head into their Bute Energy Welsh Cup semi-final against Cardiff City Women.

The Swans will be looking to reach the final of this competition for the first time since 2018, as they face off against the current holders in Bridgend.

Wynne is looking forward to facing off against Cardiff again, with the Swans earning an important 2-0 league win in their last meeting with the Bluebirds, but feels her side need to approach the game as a new chapter as opposed to thinking about what has gone before.

“We’re all looking forward to being a part of another semi-final after winning in the Adran Trophy against TNS, it’s obviously going to be a big game and it’s a neutral venue so there’s no advantage for either team,” said Wynne.

“I think obviously we will draw on what we did last time against Cardiff, but this is a different game, and we need to start on a clean slate and make sure we start on the front foot.

“Hopefully we can keep building on this momentum that we’ve got in the next couple of weeks.

“We will have to play Cardiff quite a few times across the remainder of the season, so we have to take it game by game at this stage."

Wynne was on the scoresheet when the Swans booked their place in the Genero Adran Trophy final - where they will again face Cardiff - netting a stunning 25-yard strike in the 5-1 win over The New Saints.

The result continued a rich vein of form for the Swans as they fight for silverware on three fronts, and Wynne just wants the team to keep improving with confidence high in the camp.

“We’re all absolutely buzzing, we went there to secure our place in the first final of the year, we want to win trophies and we took an important step to get into that final," she said.

“It’s definitely the best goal I’ve scored so far, it came back to me nicely, I didn’t look for power I just placed it above the keeper, so I was really happy with that one.

“We all want to contribute to the team, it’s not just about the numbers, everyone has to work hard and do the defensive work as well. But to be contributing with goals and assists is something that we all target, so I’m really happy with how I’m playing at the moment.

“The confidence is really high in the group, we are playing really well at the moment. We didn’t just scrape our way into the final, we went and put on a performance, scored some really good goals, so that confidence is building all the time.”
