The Swans EFL cup run is over at the third round stage after two first half goalsat the Amex Stadium were enough to see former manager Graham Potter and his Brighton side through into the fourth round of the competition.

MATCH REPORT – BBC SPORT

Aaron Connolly scored twice as Brighton reached round four of the Carabao Cup with a 2-0 win over Swansea City.

Graham Potter made 11 changes to the side which started Brighton’s last Premier League game and the Seagulls had to work hard for victory.

Championship Swansea, who made nine changes of their own, missed a number of chances as Connolly’s quickfire double saw Brighton progress.

Potter’s men have now won six of their seven games this season.

They did not have it easy against Swansea, who had enough chances to cause an upset, but were wasteful in front of goal.

Liam Cullen had their first opportunity as he turned sharply but saw a shot saved by Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele, who then gathered Rhys Williams’ header before Korey Smith nodded wide.

Steven Alzate and Alexis Mac Allister then combined to send Connolly into space and the Republic of Ireland international opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with the aid of a deflection off Brandon Cooper.

Connolly’s second goal came only five minutes later as he cut in from the right and fired a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

Swansea threatened again after the break, with Cullen and Smith both hitting the bar from close range, while a crisp Morgan Whittaker volley forced another sharp save from Steele.
