Ahead of our match against Swansea City in the Genero Adran Premier, we caught up with defender Phoebe Davies to discuss the clash.
Steve Dale’s side have had an impressive record on the road and down in South Wales, but this will arguably be their toughest test yet as they face the six-time league champions at the Swansea.com Stadium.
Speaking about the occasion, Davies said: “I can’t wait to be honest! “It’ll be a great experience to play at a stadium as big as Swansea’s and I’ve got all my friends and family coming down and I’m really excited.”
“In recent years, I don’t think there’s been too many high-profile north vs south games in the Welsh top-flight, so It’s good to put North Wales on the map a little bit.
The 29-year-old explained that The Red Dragons are viewing the fixture as a crucial one in their Genero Adran Premier campaign.
“It’s a long weekend with all the travelling,” Davies said. “But we’ve prepared properly, and we will make sure that we are ready.
“When we last played Swansea, I think that both of us were probably finding our feet, I expect we’ll have a bit of a different game this time.
“I think it is a huge game and one that both sides will look at as a ‘must-win’, we’re going in there and we will do everything we can to get the three points.
“I don’t know if Swansea underestimated us last time, but they certainly won’t underestimate what we can do this time. It just shows how far we’ve come in such a short space of time.”
Finally, the defender concluded by stating the importance of keeping within a close distance of the reigning champions and current league leaders, Cardiff City.
Davies explained: “It’s important that we keep the pressure on Cardiff City, as we’ve seen that they dropped points at Aberystwyth so I think that anything can happen this season.
“At the start of the season not a lot of people would’ve expected us to be in this position, but we are and we believe in ourselves – we are going to Swansea to get three points.”
We want to make sure that we’re in the best possible position when they (Cardiff City) face us again, as there’s no easy fixtures in this league and anything can happen.
