Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with matchwinner Danny Graham in victory over Real Betis.

Graham grabbed the winner in the 63rd minute with a wonderful turn that took him past his marker, before deftly lofting the ball over the keeper.

And Rodgers, who also handed a debut to new signing Wayne Routledge against the Primera Division outfit, believes the striker will go from strength to strength.

He said: "It was a brilliant goal. It came from a great bit of play down the right. He initially showed great strength and then his touch; you don't see many people finish like that and when they do they are Premier League players.

"That was a Premier League finish and it's great for his confidence as he works so hard and I am really pleased for him."
