Pre-Season Friendly: vs Carmarthen

Pre-Season Friendly: vs Carmarthen

The Swans are back in action this week as they play the first of 5 pre-season friendlies tonight against Carmarthen Town at Richmond Park.

Our last game against Carmarthen was on February 8th in the FAW Premier Cup Semi-Final. They had beaten Cardiff on route to the last 4.

They provided a tough test for the Swans and they took a surprised lead with 2 goals in 3 minutes to cancel out Britton's opener.

Robinson equalised in the last minute to take the game into extra time, where Lee Trundle won us the game with a goal after 106 minutes.

Jackett's first summer signing, Darren Pratley looks set to make his debut tonight but Dean Leacock, another player signed from Fulham is forced to look on from the sidelines.

So to will trialist Willie Boland, as both players have a hamstring injury.

Andy Oakes, a trialist goalkeeper could also appear tonight but Mikel Herbert and Guillaume Plessis have both left the club after trials.

Jackett has also played down talk that he was watching Hartlepool's Darren Williams and Demitrios Konstantopoulos.

He said: 'I was out there but I was there watching a Dutchman.

'We've got a director and some connections out there and we were looking at maybe one or two players who could progress through our ranks.'


Former Swan Terry Evans could appear for Carmarthen tonight as the League of Wales side have recently signed the defender along with Liam Hancock.
