Swansea City Under-23s Daniel James

6th March 2017

Winger Daniel James says the focus will be on the performance and not the title as Swansea City Under-23s visit West Brom in Premier League 2 tonight (7pm).
A win against the Baggies would move the young Swans a step closer to lifting the Division 2 title, with the leaders currently ten points clear at the top of the table.
Striker Oli McBurnie struck as the development side recorded their first league win of the season against West Brom at Landore in August.
And James revealed the Swans youngsters won't let their focus slip when they take on the Baggies.
"Tonight is a massive game for us and a huge opportunity to take a step towards claiming the title," said James.
"We could not be in a better position in the league, but we have to take every game as it comes and focus on our performance tonight. 



"Recent results have shown that if performance levels drop results will go against us. We've had a little blip where we lost two league games on the bounce, but I feel we have reacted well from that.
"Last Tuesday was a great win in the International Cup and we want to continue that form in the league."
James, who netted his sixth goal of the campaign to help the U23s claim an impressive 5-1 victory Hertha Berlin last week, has set his own goal of finding the net more regularly this term.
"Scoring is something I need to add to my game," the 19-year-old said. "I want to get more goals this campaign if I can. At the same time, I love getting assists and helping the team perform - so as long as we are doing well and winning as a team I am happy.
"A defender's worst nightmare is when you run at them and take them on which is something I love doing."
