FA Cup Win - Match Reaction

FA Cup Win - Match Reaction

As you'd expect Kenny Jackett was absolutely delighted with his side's 3-0 FA Cup win at Sheffield United.

He said: 'This is a tremendous result and a good performance because we played well.

'After the first half I just asked the players for some more of the same because we had one or two chances that we failed to capitalise on.

'So I'm pleased with the goals in the second half and pleased for Thomas because he had had to play second fiddle to Andy Robinson this season, but he showed what he can do.'

'This was a terrific day for Swansea,'

'But I hope both my players and the supporters reproduce that performance against Bradford because we are up here again in Yorkshire.'


Neil Warnock however said he was completely embarrassed after his side were ''humiliated'' with three quick goals in the second half.

'We were quite humiliated in the second half

'I feel disappointed and let down by players who should have been good enough to give a decent account of themselves against Swansea.

'Players whose careers I have resurrected have let me down, with only one or two of them giving their all to the end.

'I had a word with them in them dressing room after the game and told them how I feel because I cannot explain that performance.

'I have no regrets about leaving a few out because they had little injuries and struggled with tiredness and we did have a couple of suspensions

'But certain things happened in the second half that make me feel embarrassed to be a supporter, and that doesn't happen very often.


Blades midfielder Nick Montgomery apologised to United supporters after their poor performance and said: 'I just want to apologise to the fans for letting the club down, the manager down, ourselves down and the supporters down.'

Two-goal hero of the day Thomas Butler is now hoping for a Premiership club at home in the 4th round, he said: 'Personally, I'm delighted to have scored twice and get the penalty. Now it's about time we got a big FA Cup game at the Liberty Stadium.''

'I think another tie against Premiership opposition in front of a packed house at the Liberty Stadium is the least we deserve after today's result,'

'The manager told us not to fear any opposition and play our normal game. He told us to never back off regardless of what division the opposition is in.

'It was a loss to go into the game without the likes of Lee Trundle, Any Robinson and Darren Pratley, but it shows the strength in depth we've got in the squad. For a League One side, I believe we have a really strong squad.

'We started with a new 4-1-4-1 formation and it worked. We caused them a lot of problems, especially on the break.

'It was a brilliant win and games like this can really kick start your season. Confidence is sky high and we must take it into our League campaign and really push on.''
