Scotland Warns Of Cup Hangover

Scotland Warns Of Cup Hangover

Jason Scotland has warned his Swansea City team mates that they can afford no hangover from their FA Cup exploits at the weekend.

Scotland scored the clinching goal from the penalty spot at Fratton Park on Saturday as the Swans were the talk of the country.

However, Scotland remembers the last time City had a big cup win against Cardiff, that the following game was one to forget.

The Trinidad & Tobago international told the Western Mail:

"We remember what happened after we beat Cardiff in the Carling Cup," he said.

"It took us 20 minutes to get started in the next game.'

"It was too late then because we were 3-0 down by half-time. So, while I don`t know what the gaffer will do, if it is the same team out there, we don`t want that to happen again. We have learned a lesson.'

"We are looking to get into the top six, so it`s an important game for us and we will be raring to go."

"It`s great to have everybody in form. The likes of (Andrea) Orlandi and Gorka (Pintado) have been doing well and everybody it trying to play their part which is good for the team."

"People will be banging down the gaffer`s door looking to play," he said.

"But that`s good and the manager will be happy about that. He will probably change things around because it was a very tough game at Portsmouth.'

"But we have a decent squad and the guys will come in and do a job.'
