Guidolin satisfied with cup display
23rd August 2016
Francesco Guidolin expressed his satisfaction after Swansea City saw off League One hosts Peterborough in the EFL Cup second round.
The Premier League visitors were comfortable winners at the ABAX Stadium, with Jay Fulton opening the scoring after 15 minutes.
Striker Oliver McBurnie then added two more before the break as the Scot marked an impressive debut with two goals.
Peterborough pulled one back in the second half, but the 2013 winners booked their place in Wednesday night's draw with a 3-1 win.
And Guidolin, who made ten changes to the starting XI which lost to Hull last weekend, was pleased with his side's display.
"I am satisfied," said the Italian. "Overall, the first-half performance was good.
"Nothing is easy, and we fought for 90 minutes against good opponents.
"This game was important for a lot of reasons. It was a chance to improve and go forward in this competition.
"It also allowed me to know some players better too.
"Memories are good for Swansea in this competition. Now we can say we are in the next round."
Guidolin was also impressed with the performances of goalscorers Fulton - who notched his first senior goal for the club - and McBurnie, who also set up the opener.
He added: "Oliver is improving. He has been working with us for the last two months.
"I am happy for him because he is a clever player. He is a good, young player.
"This evening we showed good, young players. Oli and Jay Fulton, too, worked hard and this is important for our club."
