Swansea City Under-18s Chris Llewellyn
30th September 2016
Chris Llewellyn insists Swansea City Under-18s must improve their performances on the road - starting with Saturday's trip to Leicester City (12pm).
Goals from Liam Cullen and Causso Darame saw the young Swans draw 2-2 against Tottenham last time out, but despite an unbeaten run of three games at home, the U18s are still looking for their first point on the road in Premier League South this season.
And Llewellyn admits the Swans' fortunes on their travels must change if they are to move forward.
"We need to improve our game management and possession," he said. "We've done the ugly side of the game very well but if these lads are to reach the next level they need to be doing better on the ball.
"Tottenham showed last week just how strong the league is. Everyone is capable of beating everyone. If we are to turn decent performances into the results then we need to focus on our possession.
"Draws with Arsenal and Tottenham shows we can compete with the best in the league but we must look to see an improved performance away from home. For that our mind-set has got to change because we have not clicked on the road this season.
"Leicester will be a tough challenge at their place. They lost their last game against Arsenal, so they will be looking to bounce back."
