Swansea City Under-18s Aston Villa Premier League
25th September 2015
Swansea City Under-18s travel to Bodymoor Heath Training Ground to face Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday (12pm).
Villa have picked up three wins from their opening six games this campaign, winning their last outing 5-0 away at Brighton.
Meanwhile, Swansea's scholars will be looking to build on a hard fought 1-1 draw away at Norwich earlier this month.
"We do believe a win is coming," said coach Chris Llewellyn. "Winning is not the be all and end all of what we are looking to do here - our first aim is to develop players, but players gain confidence and increase their performance level with wins.
"Against Southampton we played well for the first 75 minutes of the game but lost where we didn't perform for 25 minutes.
"Eric (Ramsay) and I feel the team have played well in large spells of games so far this season but we are still searching for the complete 90-minute performance.
"We have produced some good build-up play this season but need to ensure we make the most of the opportunities in the final third.
"We are not going to dwell on previous results but we must learn from them and look to progress and continue to build."
Swans U18 squad: Lewis Thomas, Alex Lang, Ben Jones, Ben Morgan, Aaron Lewis, Daniel Jefferies, Matt Blake, Causso Darame, Mael Davies, Jack Watts, Thomas Dyson, Jordan Jones, Liam Edwards, Jack Evans, Keiran Evans, Brandon Griffiths, Sean Hanbury
