Swansea City Under-23s Cameron Toshack
17th October 2016
Coach Cameron Toshack insists Swansea City Under-23s must not get complacent in Premier League 2 after a 2-0 win over Fulham at Landore on Monday.
Goals from Jay Fulton and Oli McBurnie saw the young Swans return to the top of the Division 2 table with five wins from seven league games this season.
Experienced defenders Alfie Mawson and Stephen Kingsley also helped the U23s maintain their unbeaten home record with Toshack pleased to get back to winning ways in PL2.
"It's a good result that sees us go back to the top of the table," he said. "We have been playing some good football over the past few weeks to get results in three different cup competitions but the league is our bread and butter so it was important to get a good result tonight.
"I felt we were the better team overall tonight against a young Fulham side with some very good players.
"To compete with established category one academies like Fulham is a testament to how far we have come as an academy in the past few seasons.
"We have set ourselves high standards in the league this season so it is important we don't get complacent or let the intensity drop off. If we do that we give teams the chance to get back into games.
"It was great to have one or two players with Premier League experience feature for the side tonight. Both myself and Gary (Richards) are pleased with the players who have dropped in.
"A number of those young players are always pushing to be considered for the first team - tonight's performance will have done them no harm."
