Swansea City Under-21s Fulham Premier League Division Two
29th October 2015
Swansea City Under-21s will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in Barclays Premier League Division Two to four games when they face Fulham at Motspur Park on Friday (7pm).
A dominant display saw the development squad thrash Aston Villa 5-0 at Landore training ground last week.
Meanwhile, Fulham go into the game off the back of a 2-0 win at West Ham on Monday.
Despite a five-star performance against Villa in their last match, U21s captain Liam Shephard believes the side need to refocus ahead of Fulham.
"We can't go into Friday's match being over-confident," he said.
"Our result against Villa was great, but we need to put that behind us and focus on Fulham.
"We have played well in recent weeks but need to be more consistent, especially with our finishing. When it comes together we get a result like we did last week.
"Fulham are a strong side, so we are not going to go there expecting an easy game."
Shephard took over the captain's arm band in September when Josh Sheehan secured a loan move to League Two side Yeovil.
The 20-year-old, who also gained experience on loan at the Glovers last season where he was named young player of the year, said he is enjoying his time as captain.
"It is nice to captain the side but I think we are all leaders on the pitch," he added.
"This season I feel my game has matured and I am looking to help the team with the experience I gained from going on loan last season.
"Friday will be a tough test. We have trained hard all week and now need to apply that to the game but we are looking forward to the challenge."
