Sat, 27 Jul 2013 18:56:00 – Swansea geared up for their Europa League campaign with a comfortable 3-0 win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
Wilfried Bony made his first start for the Swans as they eased to victory to boost confidence ahead of their continental clash with Malmo on Thursday.
And summer signing Bony teed up two goals as Michael Laudrup's men ended their pre-season unbeaten.
Michu scored the opener after 11 minutes as his shot deflected off Alex Pearce and squirmed past Alex McCarthy.
Swansea could not add to their lead before half-time but Bony set up two goals in quick succession after the break as he played in Jonjo Shelvey after 56 minutes and Pablo Hernandez three minutes later.
