Swansea Fans Optimistic Of Cup Upset

Swansea Fans Optimistic Of Cup Upset

71% of our readers think we are capable of beating Premiership side Sheffield United in the FA Cup third round tie after a recent poll on the website.

2,000+ tickets have been sold for the trip North as Swansea fans look forward to prospect of causing an upset against Neil Warnock's side.

Swansea have beaten Newport (3-1) and Darlington (3-1) on route to the 3rd round as the Premiership teams are entered into the draw.

After last Saturday's 5-0 thumping win over Carlisle, we want to know whether you think is our turning point of the season.

Can we go on from here and make our way up the league or was that 5-0 scoreline a one-off against an injury struck side?

You can vote on the right hand side as well as join in the debate or share your views in our forum here

the players should be right up for this one so there's no reason why we can't pull off a shock.
