'Aaron’s A Good Kid. There’s Not A Problem With Him At All'

Aaron Connolly scored both goals for Brighton as his side beat Swansea 2-0 in the League Cup on Wednesday night.

The goals - scored five minutes apart in the first half - are the Galwayman's first of the season, and mean he has already matched his total of 2020/21. Both goals were typical Connolly strikes, with him coming off the left and hitting a right-footed strike towards the bottom right-hand corner.

The game was just the 21-year-old's second appearance of the season for the club.

"Aaron’s a good kid. He's a really nice kid," Brighton manager Graham Potter told The Argus.

"There’s not a problem with him at all.

"He’s just sometimes young and wants to play and can be frustrated and is a human being.

"That’s the truth – but everyone loves him here.

"We want to help him reach his full capacity.

"He’s only young so he is going to make mistakes and it’s not going to be a straight road for him but the quality is there."

Potter added: "He needed the goals, and it was nice for him. He played in that little role off the left. He likes his finishes from there. He took the goals well, contributed to what we've tried to do as a team. He worked well defensively."
