Swansea City Under-21s Brighton Botti Biabi

8th December 2015

Swansea City Under-21s striker Botti Biabi aims to stake a claim in the development squad this season with more goals in Premier League Division Two.
The 19-year-old, who signed from Scottish Championship side Falkirk in August, netted his first league goal of the campaign during the U21s' dominating 4-0 win over Brighton on Monday.
Biabi has been drafted into the starting plans to replace Oli McBurnie, who joined Newport on loan last month.
And after making just his third full start for the U21s on Monday, Biabi says he now aims to stake his claim for a regular starting role.
"It was great to score my first goal," he said. "I am enjoying the experience of playing category one football this season and I am thrilled with my first goal.
"It is great to tick that off my list - now I aim to kick on from here and get more this season.
"I want to grab this opportunity with both hands and help create competition for places.
"Oli (McBurnie) has been great so far this season, so it has been hard to start ahead of him as the lead striker.
"Over the next few games I want to show the team what I can do and I feel there is more to come from me this season.
"Our next game against West Brom will be a hard but we have what it takes in the squad to do well against them and need to look to repeat the performance we produced on Monday."
Biabi opened the scoring in the home win over Brighton, with Henry Jones adding two more while sub Owain Jones finished off a convincing performance.
And the performance and result proved hugely satisfying for Biabi.
"The win over Brighton was a real team effort," said the Scotland Under-19 international, who originally hails from London,
"I probably should have converted a few more but the main thing is we are creating the chances in front of goal.
"We played very well the first 20 minutes to race into a dominating lead and we never gave them (Brighton) a chance from there. Overall it was a good result."
