Defender Mael Davies wants Swansea City Under-18s to continue their hard work when they face Southampton at Staplewood Campus on Saturday (11am).
Victory would see the young Swans close the gap on the Saints in the Premier League (South) table and better last season’s overall tally of 13 points.
Despite a heavy league defeat against Reading last week, Davies believes the talent in the squad is good enough to reach the targets they have set.
“It was this time last year we started to kick on as a team and get results,” he said. “If we can do that again in the coming weeks, we will be able to beat what we achieved last season.
“We have to bounce back from last week’s defeat. We earned a good draw against Southampton earlier this season, which gives us confidence going into Saturday.
“As a team we have set targets to get ourselves a certain amount of points from our next five league games - it is up to us to ensure we achieve that.
“We have to focus on our performances and keep working hard and see out games over the 90 minutes to ensure we get the points we want.”
