Young Swans suffer defeat
29th August 2014
Swansea City Under-18s suffered their first defeat of the season with a narrow loss against Bristol City.
The visitors broke the deadlock after 18 minutes when Owain Jones played in Kyle Copp who finished well from 25 yards.
However, the home side levelled from the penalty spot ten minutes before half time and grabbed their second after the break to leave the Swans with a mountain to climb.
And coach Cameron Toshack admitted it was a frustrating defeat considering his side played well for long periods of the game.
"We were looking comfortable but unfortunately gave away a foolish penalty which ultimately changed the tempo of the game and cost us," he said. "After their second goal we struggled to get back into the game.
"I was really pleased with the start we made, the team focused on their objectives and addressed areas that let us down during the previous match.
"Overall, I think we need to show a little bit more discipline and keep working hard on the training ground, whilst concentrating on cutting out those individual errors that cost us and denied the group their first victory."
The Under-18s now have an international break before the side take on Barnsley at Fairwood on Saturday, September 13.
