Under-18s suffer defeat to Coventry
1st October 2014
Swansea City Under-18s suffered a 4-1 home defeat to top-of-the-table Coventry City at Fairwood last weekend.
The visitors dominated the opening period and went into the half-time break with a slender one-goal lead.
Jamie Latham got the home side level just two minutes after the restart, but Coventry hit back with two goals in ten minutes to leave the Swans with a mountain to climb.
The visitors then added a fourth late on to round off a comprehensive victory.
"They (Coventry) are a strong outfit who sit top of the league but despite our best efforts they dominated large parts of the game," said Under-18s coach Cameron Toshack.
"We got back into the match but poor concentration cost us and we surrendered possession too easily in to the second half to let in three more goals.
"I'll admit our performance was not to the standard we set ourselves as a football club. Our players need to continue to embrace responsibility as part of their development.
"I am looking forward to a reaction from our lads now. I want us to show the character I know we have and bounce back with positive results."
