Notts County boss Nolan gutted after Swansea thumping

Swansea Notts County

Rampant Swansea City thrashed fourth-tier Notts County 8-1 in a replay to reach the FA Cup fifth round Tuesday as it chalked up their biggest victory in the competition.

Swansea were held to a 1-1 draw in the first game at Meadow Lane but put in a superb performance to coast into the fifth round of the competition at the expense of the beleaguered Magpies.

First half braces from Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer set the Swans on their way, while a maiden strike from 20-year-old debutant Daniel James completed the scoring late on.

But the challenge facing Swansea in tonight's game and for the rest of the season has been made all the more hard after the weekend's action. The teams drew 1-1 in the original match last month.

Speaking of the recent transfer window, Carvalhal said that recruits Andre Ayew and Andy King are players who "really want to come and play for Swansea", and that "if they come with the attitude to help the team we will be stronger".

Which Premier League teams spent most - or made a profit - during the January transfer window? New boss Carlos Carvalhal has turned Swansea's season around, as they have only lost one game since his appointment, and two of their wins have been against Liverpool and Arsenal.

German coalition deal sets no timetable to end glyphosate use
However, the SPD's parliamentary leader Andrea Nahles told her party that they would "negotiate until the other side squeals" . Her first attempt to form a coalition with smaller parties failed when talks collapsed in November .

'It's a sad injury, but sometimes these things happen and it gives you the chance to step up, ' Abraham said. Fer was doing well and Bony was growing game by game.

County are now third in League Two, and will be looking for automatic promotion to the third tier, but while they showed glimpses of their best around Noor Husin's goal at the end of the first half, this sort of defeat could leave a significant mark on Nolan's players.

The string of results which Swansea have managed to pull together following the arrival of Carlos Carvalhal at the club in December is going viral online tonight, following the Swans' demolition of Notts County in the FA Cup.

"If we win we go to the next step, if we lose it's not the end of the world". "I believe one day it will be the same with Swansea - I will be a Jack".
