Academy coach previews Swans test


"Apart from our long-term absentees, we've had some nice progression with players thanks to our medical staff. We've come together as a coaching group to make sure everyone has the appropriate training to go into the match as fresh as possible."

"All I'm looking for is a response from our players to what we've covered during the week. If they're able to do that then I've got no doubts we'll see a positive outcome.

However, Murty is firmly focused on his own side, and added: "My primary concern is with our progression, and ensuring we keep hitting our targets.

"They were excellent, both in their approach, their quality and their execution. I also have to credit the Under-21 players who dropped down into the group as they approached the game really well.

Speaking to, Murty said: "The boys put in a really good performance in midweek, and I'm hoping they can take confidence from that.
