Fulham Under-21s will be looking to make it two wins in a week when they welcome Swansea City to Motspur Park on Friday evening (7pm).
A resolute display saw the Whites come away from Upton Park with a 2-0 win over West Ham United on Monday, and victory on Friday would see Peter Grant’s men leapfrog their opponents in the table.
Swansea currently sit fourth in the standings after winning four and drawing one of their seven matches played so far. Most recently they thumped Aston Villa 5-0 to extend their unbeaten run to five matches.
“They have a philosophy that they’re practising right through the club where they try and do what the first team do, and they play very well,” Grant said of the Welsh outfit. “Swansea like to move the ball quickly and try to play with a purpose, and I’ve been impressed with them.
“I’ve seen them twice this year and I was very, very impressed with them in both games. So I know it’s a team that’s going to come here and move the ball quickly and try and create chances, but I know we’re capable of that as well. We’ll give them the upmost respect but we’ll worry about ourselves.
“We’ve got to impose ourselves on the game and hopefully that will be the case come Friday, and it would be great if we get a double bounce of two wins in a week. To do that we’ll have to play at our optimum, and that’s what I expect the boys to do come Friday evening.”
