Teenage full-back Ben Davies is set to fulfil a lifelong dream when he makes his first start for Swansea against Barnsley in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

The 19-year-old is a product of the Swans' academy after joining the club at the age of eight, and made his debut as a late substitute in Saturday's 3-0 win over West Ham. With manager Michael Laudrup set to ring the changes, Davies is now in line for his first start.

And, having been brought up in a family of Swans' fans, he admits it will be a very special moment, and he said: "I've been here since I was eight years old and to have the opportunity to play for the first team is a dream come true."
