Zane Myers felt Swansea City Under-18s had shown their battling qualities after coming from behind to draw at Peterborough.

Defender Myers was a big part of the Swans fightback to earn a point, scoring the opening Swans goal and assisting the second as they managed to earn a 3-3 draw away at the Posh.

Despite being a defender, Myers has already shown his composure and ability in the final third and is already showing an understanding of the tactics coach Byron Anthony is looking to instil into his side.

And he was pleased to see the Swans show they have substance to go with their style of play.

“I’m happy to get a goal and an assist, I always back myself in front of goal. Cameron Congreve was making good runs all afternoon and we kept finding him which we got a lot of joy out of,” he said.

“I think we started slow but grew into the game a lot more in the second half and created more than them, we kept the ball, doing what we worked on at the training ground.

“For the second half, we just listened to the manager really, we stuck to our game plan and the patterns that we’ve been working on.

“They played a diamond formation, so they kept it quite narrow, so we knew we had space out wide, we kept moving the ball quickly and finding chances to score, and thankfully we did.

“We’ve had a lot of people inured who are just coming back so not everyone was up to full fitness for the 90 minutes which showed, but in those situations, we’ve just got to work hard and get down to it.

“When it looks like you’re down and out like that, to show the determination to come back, it’s big and it’s good for us to take forward because it shows what we can achieve.

“To be still unbeaten is good, obviously you’d rather get a draw than lose, but hopefully we can build on this, take it forward next week and get ourselves a win.”
