Sinclair was making his first Swansea appearance during pre-season.

Swansea City ran out comfortable winners over Inter Baku of Azerbaijan in the first of two friendly matches in Austria.

Scott Sinclair, Nathan Dyer and Luke Moore were the scorers for the Premier League newcomers at Bishophofen near Salzburg.

On Sunday they will face the United Arab Emirates Olympics squad before flying home the following day.

They open their Premier League campaign at Manchester City on 15 August.

In Austria Swansea enjoyed the majority of possession during a goalless first half with Ashley Williams and Danny Graham going close.

Within two minutes of the re-start, play-off final hero Scott Sinclair gave Swansea the lead after Joe Allen capitalised on a mistake by the goalkeeper before setting up Sinclair.

Allen was again the provider seven minutes later when his cross found Nathan Dyer, who scored after his initial shot was parried.

Although Swansea continued to dominate, their opponents reduced the deficit when Rahimov Shariyar's effort beat Jose Moreira.

But the Swans restored their two goal lead with Luke Moore's header from Craig Beattie's cross securing victory.
