Swansea City Under-21s West Ham Premier League
29th November 2015
Swansea City Under-21s return to Premier League Division Two action at home to West Ham at Landore on Monday afternoon (Midday).
West Ham took their third victory of the season last week with a 3-2 win at home to Derby.
Meanwhile, the development squad lost late on in their last league game away at Fulham last month before losing out to Millwall in the Premier League Cup last Monday.
Coach Gary Richards insists the team will be looking to bounce-back from those results.
"We are looking forward to getting back to league action after a month's break," he said.
"We have been disappointed with the results from our last two games but we must look at the positives from them.
"We created enough chances in both games to win but our level of performance we expect dropped against Millwall last week.
"We have been working hard this week and will look to put that right against West Ham on Monday.
"Our performances in the league so far this season have been good, we want to make sure we continue that good form."
The Swans will be forced to make changes to the side for Monday's fixture.
Goalkeeper Josh Vickers misses out through injury, meanwhile lead goalscorer Oliver McBurnie has joined League Two side Newport County on loan.
The striker netted a hatrick on his debut with County after coming on a substitute against Luton.
Meanwhile, defender Stephen Kingsley will be back in contention for a starting place after his 3 month loan with Crewe ended this week.
"Oli has been fantastic for us this season and deserves his chance with Newport," Richards added.
"Everyone in the team is thrilled he has made such a good start with Newport.
"It will also be good to welcome Stephen (Kingsley) back into the frame, he did an excellent job whilst on loan at Crewe and we hope that can continue with us."
