Swansea City claim second win on pre-season tour

Pablo Hernandez in action for Swansea City

Swansea City made it two wins out of two on their pre-season Dutch tour with a 5-1 victory over Excelsior Maassluis.

Their hosts, a third-tier team in the Netherlands, took an early lead but were ultimately outclassed.

Roland Lamah, Rory Donnelly, Alejandro Pozuelo, Kenji Gorre and Nathan Dyer were the goalscorers for the Swans.

They kicked off their trip with a 2-0 victory over FC Gravenzande on Saturday, with Ki Sung-Yueng and Pablo Hernandez scoring.

Manager Michael Laudrup played completely different teams in each half of both games.

"I think these games in Holland will be good preparation for Europe and the Premier League,'' Hernandez told the club's website.

Last season's top scorer Michu missed the match on Saturday because of tightness in a thigh muscle, but played the second half against Excelsior.

Swansea will play four matches during their 10-day tour in the Netherlands.
