Ben Davies is enjoying his first team run at Swansea City.

Neath-born rookie Davies was thrown into the deep-end by Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup as emergency full-back cover for the crocked Neil Taylor just three games into the season.

He told the South Wales Echo: "I got the chance to play a game and Michael Laudrup must have thought I did well to keep playing me. It's a totally different to playing under-21s football or reserve football, but I can only do my best and hopefully stand up to the opposition we play against.

"Everything's a lot quicker, the players are a lot more switched on and there's no time to rest in the game.

"But as a young player all I've got to do is work as hard as I can and do my best in the game.

"And I've got to keep enjoying what's happening because I don't know when I might get a chance like this again."
