Swansea City Under-23s Daniel James
20th September 2016
Daniel James expressed his delight at netting Swansea City Under-23s' winner against Blackburn at Landore on Monday.
The 18-year-old stepped up to score the development squad's second-half winner after defender Joe Rodon was fouled in the area.
The win sees the young Swans stay top of Premier League 2 (Division 2) with an unbeaten home record still intact following wins over West Brom and West Ham in August.
And the winger, who won his first cap for Wales Under-21s earlier this month, insists he wants to net more goals for the Swans this season.
"I'm really pleased with the performance of the team and to get my second goal of the season," he said.
"Oli (McBurnie) is usually the penalty taker, but after he was substituted at half-time I knew it was my chance for a spot-kick.
"Scoring gives me extra confidence. I got my first of the season against Wolves last month and goals are definitely something I want to add to my game.
"As a forward it is really important to contribute to the team. Goals win games at the end of the day, so I was pleased to help the team bounce back from last week's defeat and get the win.
"Blackburn pressed us right from the kick-off and it was a tough game on Monday but our character showed in front of our home fans.
"We always perform well at Landore. Our aim now must be to stay strong and focused and look to maintain our unbeaten home run over the coming weeks."
