Swindon Town 0-3 Swansea City

Nathan Dyer crosses the ball for Swansea City against Swindon Town

Swansea City strolled to a routine friendly win at Swindon Town thanks to a slick second-half display.

Andre Ayew, one of eight half-time substitutes, put the Swans ahead with an assured low finish.

Another of the changes, Modou Barrow, created the second as Jay Fulton met his free-kick with a glancing header.

Swindon’s Jermaine Hylton hit the post but Barrow latched on to Jefferson Montero’s superb long ball to seal the visitors’ victory.

Their League One opponents were competitive and had been unfortunate not to take the lead in the first half, with Gerhard Tremmel’s brilliant double-save denying Raphael Rossi-Branco and John Goddard.

However, Swansea were comfortable winners, even without Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor, Lukasz Fabianski and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who have yet to feature for Francesco Guidolin’s side having represented their countries at Euro 2016.

Poland goalkeeper Fabianski could play in Saturday’s friendly at Wolves, while Iceland midfielder Sigurdsson and Wales defenders Williams and Taylor are due to report back for training on Sunday.
