Snapshot: Wembley wonders

It was February 2013, and for the second time in a couple of years the Swans were celebrating at Wembley.

While the 2011 play-off final was riddled with tension in the second half, the 2012-13 Capital One Cup final went very smoothly as far as the Swans were concerned.

League Two side Bradford City had stunned a succession of Premier League clubs as they put together a remarkable run to the final.

But the Bantams crumbled at Wembley as Michael Laudrup’s Swans took control.

Nathan Dyer opened the scoring early on, then Michu’s cool finish made it 2-0 at the break.

Dyer netted again right at the start of the second half before Bradford keeper Matt Duke was sent off.

Jonathan de Guzman scored from the spot, then grabbed a second at the end to complete a 5-0 rout.

The Swans had secured their first major piece of silverware in their 101st year, hence the players were sliding about on the Wembley turf afterwards.
