Swansea City Reserves drew 1-1 this evening against AFC Bournemouth at Port Talbot.

Matty Collins scored a second half equaliser to cancel out Hill’s opener just before the break.

Colin Pascoe named 5 senior players in his starting line-up – Matty Collins, Fede Bessone, Kristian O’Leary, Owain Tudur-Jones and Shaun MacDonald.

Tudur-Jones had a shot struck the crossbar in the opening half as we had good spells of possession.

After Hill’s opener, we went looking for an instant reply in the second half as O’Leary had 3 chances to score.

Matthew Wright also got close but his header went just wide from MacDonald’s cross.

Collins scored the equaliser around the hour mark, and we then went looking for the winner.

Bond, MacDonald, Berry and Collins all had chances late on.
