Swansea City Under-23s Alex Samuel
2nd November 2016
Alex Samuel believes he is finding his feet in a new playing role and that the best is yet to come from Swansea City's youngsters following Monday's 2-1 league win over Stoke in Premier League 2.
The 21-year-old netted the Under-23s' second half winner against the Potters ensuring the side are top of Division 2 heading into November.
And the Neath-born striker, who spent last season on loan at Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton, admits his new position on the wing is only adding to his game.
"I am still a striker at heart," Samuel said. "But I am relishing my opportunity as a winger this season. The change of position is only adding more depth to my game.
"I can cut inside and make those runs to help the team in the final third which is what happened against Stoke in our game on Monday.
"It was a tough game, very physical. So we were happy to get all three points and to maintain our top-of-the-table form.
"But it was not our best performance, we know as a team that we can do a lot better. There are even areas of my game I could have improved on.
"There is definitely more to come from us this season, our aim is to continue our momentum as we go into a stretch of three cup games starting on Friday against Southampton."
The Under-23s face The Saints in the group stage of the Premier League Cup on Friday, November 4 (7pm) at Landore.
