Swansea City wins Capital One Cup

Swansea defeated Bradford City 5-0 in a one-sided final in which the League Two club were forced to play with 10 men for more than half an hour after Matt Duke, their goalkeeper, was sent off for bringing down Jonathan De Guzman in the penalty area.

Both Bradford City and Swansea City went into this afternoon's League Cup final looking to win the competition for the first time in their history.

After beating three Premier League outfits on their way to Wembley, League Two Bradford found Swansea an altogether different proposition.

Nathan Dyer scored twice, Michu found the net before the break and Jonathan de Guzman's doubled confirmed the biggest win in final history as Swansea secured the first meaningful silverware in their entire existence.

Nathan Dyer has admitted that he was disappointed not to score a hat trick in Swansea's 5-0 Capital One Cup final win over Bradford after Jonathan de Guzman refused to allow him to take a penalty.

After scoring a goal either side of halftime, Dyer had the opportunity to secure his third tally, but De Guzman declined to pass on the penalty-taking duties after a lengthy dispute and went on to calmly convert from the spot.

When asked what it was like to score twice in the final, Dyer told reporters: "It was brilliant. I haven't scored for a while so to get two goals today, obviously I wanted the hat trick with the penalty."

"Obviously, I had to score on a historical moment like this, and I thought I should have gotten the ball, but it wasn't meant to be and I passed it on and that's the way it went."

Swansea's cup win is the first major trophy in club history, which also secured Europa League qualification for Michael Laudrup's team. Dyer praised the club's progress from the lower reaches of English football and hailed a "massive" day for the city as a whole.
