Swansea City Under-23s Middlesbrough Keston Davies
11th September 2016
Keston Davies has warned Swansea City's development squad not to get carried away with their unbeaten league start.
The Under-23s sit top of the Premier League 2 table after wins against West Brom, Wolves and West Ham before a defeat against Wimbledon in the Checkatrade Trophy last month.
The development squad captain has urged his team-mates to learn from the defeat against the League One side and continue their unbeaten league run against Middlesbrough on Monday.
"We've made an excellent start to the season and are top of the table, but we can't get too carried away at this early stage," said the 19-year-old.
"We have worked really hard to record three wins on the bounce with two clean sheets, but we must take every game as it comes because it is a long campaign.
"The game against Wimbledon may not have been the result we wanted but it was a good learning experience against a proper EFL team.
"We feel we did well in parts but when you make mistakes you get punished for it. However, games in that competition will benefit us in the long term.
"Our aim now must be to refocus on the league. Middlesbrough will be another tough test and they won't be push-overs. They will come out all guns blazing looking to end our unbeaten run, so we must be ready for it.
"We know we need to put in the same work rate and effort to get more positive results this month but spirits are high and hopefully we can take momentum into the next game."
