Swansea took the lead on 78 minutes when Fabien Brandy broke the deadlock after fellow substitute Shaun McDonald got behind his marker Matt Richards and find Brandy who fired it past Dutchman Michel Kuipers from 6 yards out.

Wilkins Told seagulls.co.uk:

'I'm pleased with the improvement from last season, especially at home. I think it was really important that we gave out supporters some good performances and some good results and I think we did that consistently over the season.'
