Swansea Reserves Slump To Third Successive Loss

Swansea Reserves Slump To Third Successive Loss

Swansea City reserves have slumped to a third successive defeat after being beaten by Blue Square Premier side Salisbury City 3-1.

The Whites took the place of Bristol Rovers in the Football Combination after Rovers disbanded their reserve side as part of a economization policy at the Memorial Stadium.Crashing to defeat at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium Swansea took the lead early on when Matthew Wright lobed the keeper but a goal from Robbie Matthews just before half time gave the Wilshire side the equalizer. Mathews then turned provider when his cross found Charlie Griffin in the box to fire the hosts into a 2-1 lead. Four minutes later Danny Young put the non leauge side into a 3-1 lead.

The result puts Swansea firmly rooted to the bottom of The Football Combination Wales & West Division with no points from their first two games. With the 4-0 loss to Cheltenham Town on the 19th August and the defeat last week in the Football Combination Challenge Cup against Reading, Colin Pascoe's side have conceded worryingly 10 goals in three games. Swansea do have the chance to redeem themselves next week on the 17th September when Bristol City are the visitors to The GenQuip Stadium in Port Talbot.

The fixture could be also set to mark the return of former Swan Lee Trundle as the striker looks to gain vital match fitness after making the most of his appearances this season from the bench. Tickets for the game will be available on the gate with limited car parking available.

Salisbury: Grant Porter, Sean Clohessy, Matthew Hartman, Luke Ruddick, Djoumin Sangare (C), Thomas Widdrington, Brion Dutton, Jonathan Davies, Robert Matthews, Charlie Griffin, Daniel Young.

Subs: Mike Harris, Marco Tenten, Jack Eves, Sam Connolly, Stuart Parsons.

Subs: Joe Harris, Lee Lucas, Adam Orme.
