Ben Davies says that he is continually growing in confidence after scoring his first goal for Swansea City on Saturday.

Swansea City defender Ben Davies has revealed his delight at scoring his first ever goal for the club during their win over Stoke City on Saturday.

The left-back netted the opener before a Jonathan de Guzman braced earned the Swans a 3-1 victory over the Potters at the Liberty Stadium, despite a late Michael Owen strike.

The 19-year-old admits that playing in the first team has allowed him to grow in confidence.

"When you first come into the team you don't want to make mistakes and now I feel a lot more confident," Davies said. "It feels as if my place is there for me to push on and I've got to show what I can do going forward as well as defensively to stay in the team.

"I hope I can keep getting forward at every opportunity and if I get the chances I hope to get them in the net.

"It was a great feeling to get my first goal in professional football, I was a bit shocked more than anything to see it go in. It was a great feeling."
