Graham Potter was pleased to see George Byers open his Swansea City account by netting the only goal in victory over Millwall.

The midfielder fired a left-footed strike just inside the angle of bar and post shortly before half-time, and it proved the decisive moment in a tight encounter at the Liberty Stadium.

It was the 22-year-old's first senior goal, and comes after his recent return to the first-team fold.

This was his first home league start since October, and he chose a fine way to mark it as the Swans claimed a league double over the Lions for the first time since the 1929-30 season.

"I thought he was really good, he had calmness on the ball and you could see his quality," said Potter. 

"He’s an intelligent footballer and it was nice for him to get his goal, overall I thought he was really good."
