Swansea City 1-0 Middlesbrough – Highlights

Swansea City 1-0 Middlesbrough - Highlights

Swansea edged into the Capital One Cup semi-finals after finally breaking down Championship side Middlesbrough with a late goal at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans reached only a third semi-final in top-flight cup competitions in their 100-year history thanks to an 81st-minute own goal from Boro’s Seb Hines.

Hines could not clear a Swansea corner as the Premier League side exerted sustained late pressure, and the ball flew off him and past Boro goalkeeper Jason Steele.

It put Swansea into the last four alongside Bradford – memorable conquerors of Arsenal last night – and Aston Villa, while Chelsea meet Leeds in the remaining quarter-final clash next week.
