Swansea Wait On FA Cup Draw

After a hard fought win against Ryman Isthmian Premier League Side Billericay Town , Swansea City will be awaiting to see who they have drawn in the FA Cup 2nd round.

The draw will take place at The FA's headquarters in Soho Square London at 5.15pm. The draw will be made by former West Bromwich Albion striker Cyrille Regis and former Nottingham Forest midfielder Steve Hodge.

The Liberty Stadium outfit secured their passage into the 2nd round after a nail-biting 2-1 win over their non league opponents ;108 places bellow them in the football league pyramid.

Blues Right back Wayne Semanshia capitalised on a poor defensive clearance and finished off at close range. Billericay surged forward with a confidence as they looked to cause a first round shock upset.

That effort was to take a huge blow with 30 minutes to go Spanish Striker Guillem Bauza unleashed a 25 yard strike which had Billy McMahan in the Ricay goal well beaten.

The Home side continued to press for a winner and had a penalty decision turned down by referee Phil Joslin.

Billericay Town were 8 minutes away from forcing a cup replay when Guillem Bauza made it 2-1 to the visitors after collecting the ball after a rebound.

The former Mallorca player coolly slotted home from 6 yards sending the 300 or so Swansea supporters into rapturous applause and celebration.

The 82nd minute goal proved decisive as Swansea scuppered any chance of the Essex side earning a shock replay at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea will ball 35 out of the hat.
