​Second-half surge helps Swansea cruise past Reading

Swansea advanced to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup after they defeated Reading 2-0 at the Madejski Stadium.

Defender Alfie Mawson got the scoring underway when he turned home Renato Sanches' corner on the 52nd minute mark.

With seven minutes remaining in the match, Jordan Ayew put the game out of reach when he rifled an emphatic finish past Anssi Jaakkola.

Swansea will be hoping to emulate their 2013 campaign when they lifted the League Cup for the first time.
