Swansea Reserves ended their unbeaten run with a heavy 6-2 defeat at Plymouth yesterday afternoon.
Colin Pascoe named a young side once again and they were up against a strong Plymouth outfit, which featured former Swan Rory Fallon, who scored a brace.
Swansea’s second string went 8 games unbeaten and the run included wins against Exeter, Cheltenham, Salisbury and Forest Green Rovers.
Rory Fallon scored twice the first half but Chris Jones and Kerry Morgan scored to bring the scores level at the break.
Noone, Douala and Donnelly (2) wrapped up the game in the second half.
Reserves boss Colin Pascoe shared his thoughts after the game:
‘It really was a game of two halves,’
‘I thought we had the better scoring opportunities to have even been ahead by a couple of more goals, with the play and desire being superb.
‘But despite ending the half all square, Plymouth’s experienced squad constantly put us under long periods of pressure.
‘In the end we were unable to handle the situations where Plymouth played a series of long balls into the channels and we were punished from them, where perhaps with better defending we could have coped with the series of second-half threats which produced four goals.’
Swans: David Cornell; Matty Collins (C), Kyle Graves, Jamie Grimes, Daniel Sheehan (Matthew Wright, 67′); Keiran Howard (Adam Orme, 85′), Dion Chambers, Jazz Richards; Chris Jones, Kerry Morgan, Joe Harris.
Not Used: Rhys Wilson (GK), Steven Berry, Anthony Finselbach.
