Swansea City Under-23s Keston Davies
7th March 2017
Keston Davies insists Swansea City Under-23s must continue to strive to hit their targets this season despite moving to within a point of winning the Premier League 2 (Division 2) title.
The Swans captain provided the crucial assist to help Oli McBurnie net the winner against West Brom on Monday as the U23s sealed their 15th league victory of the season.
The result extended their lead at the top of the division 2 table to 13 points and sets up a title decider against Wolves at the Liberty Stadium this coming Monday.
And Davies, who has featured in every PL2 league game for the U23s this season, expressed his pride with the team's performances this campaign.
"Monday's result showed just how much character and belief we have as a team," he said.
"It was a result we had to grind out but all the boys were fantastic. The team has been superb throughout the season and I could not be prouder to lead them as captain.
"The win this week is huge but we can't take our foot off the gas. We have set ourselves targets and still have games to play in the league and cup.
"Our next job must be to reach the next round of the Premier League Cup with our game against Bristol on Thursday before we finish the job in the league against Wolves on Monday.
"It will be massive to win the title in front of our fans at the Liberty, but to do that we have to stay level headed, keep delivering on the pitch and playing well."
