Midfielder Darren Pratley celebrates his goal for Swansea City

Swansea City eased into the second round of the Carling Cup, brushing aside Barnet with an impressive first win under new manager Brendan Rodgers.

After Shefki Kuqi missed an early penalty, Cedric van der Gun made the breakthrough as he headed home a fine cross from Albert Serran.

Nottingham Forest transfer target Darren Pratley came off the bench to double Swansea's lead with a fine solo.

Kuqi made amends for his miss with a late third to underline Swansea's win.

Their reward is a trip to League One side Tranmere Rovers in the second round, meaning they missed out on a glamour tie against one of the Premier League clubs.

Swansea started strongly and Barnet were given a let off as early as the 19th minute at the Liberty Stadium when Kuqi hit the crossbar with a penalty kick after Sam Cox had brought down Van der Gun in the area.

Swansea reflect on Barnet win

The League Two visitors could again count themselves lucky just two minutes later when Kerry Morgan again smashed the Barnet bar with an ambitious shot from distance.

But the Bees defence was finally breached as Van der Gun headed home Serra's right-wing cross from close range, following good work from Joe Allen in midfield.

Swansea were more comfortable in possession after the opener, although Barnet were certainly not out of it heading into the second half.

But Rodgers' side were firmly on the front foot as they went in search of a crucial second, Van der Gun, Morgan and Allen all going close.

The second goal finally arrived via Pratley in the 72nd minute as the in-demand ex-Fulham trainee capped a driving run with an unstoppable shot past Jake Cole.

The midfielder took off his shirt and celebrated fiercely in what appeared to be a show of loyalty to the home fans.

Kuqi missed a sitter from 12 yards as the game entered the closing stages before finally finding the net at the third attempt, rounding off a successful evening for Swans boss Rodgers in what was his first competitive game at the Liberty Stadium.
