Swansea City booked their place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern final with a 1-0 triumph over Brighton.
Darryl Duffy scored the only goal of the game at The Liberty Stadium to set up a clash with MK Dons.
Roberto Martinez's side began the encounter brightly, and broke the deadlock after poor defending from the visitors allowed Duffy (9) to head home.
Just minutes later, Swansea should really have doubled their advantage when Guillem Bauza failed to divert the ball past goalkeeper Michel Kuipers.
Brighton began the second half strongly, with Alex Revell and Joel Lynch both going close.
The visitors created once more, but Dean Cox spurned the opportunity with Dorus De Vries saving well.
