Swansea City Under-21s Ryan Blair
1st March 2016
Ryan Blair is targeting a first start for Swansea City Under-21s after making his debut with the development squad last month.
The 20-year-old came off the bench to feature for the young Swans during their league games at Aston Villa and Blackburn in February.
The midfielder joined former Falkirk team-mates Botti Biabi and Stephen Kingsley at the Liberty after signing a three-and-a-half year deal from the Scottish Championship side in January.
"I am enjoying my time here and I feel I am settling in really well," he said. "It is good to have so many players here that I know - it has helped me settle in faster.
"It has been great to get my first game time with the U21s so soon after joining. From here I want to push on and get my first full start for the team between now and the end of the season."
The development squad slipped to their seventh defeat of the season with a 2-0 reverse at Blackburn on Monday.
And Blair insists the young Swans need to turn their form around ahead of their next match at home to Derby on Monday.
"As a team we were very disappointed with the result against Blackburn," Blair added.
"We have not had the quality in the final third in the last few games, so we need to tighten things up and pass the ball better in order to create more chances.
"We must start picking up points, especially with our games in hand. We want to be in that top five to have a chance at the play-offs."
