Havant & Waterlooville seem to be in confident mood ahead of their FA Cup third round replay tomorrow at West Leigh Park.
A late goal by Rocky Baptiste canceled out Andy Robinson's superb free-kick to force a replay.
Both sides have plenty to play for in tomorrow's tie (7:45pm) as they could face Liverpool in the next round if they overcome Luton.
Captain Jamie Collins says they fancy their chances against the Swans, he told the Non League Paper:
|'Normally as a non-league club you hope to get into the first round, but to be in the hat for the fourth round and having the possibility of playing Liverpool is a dream.|
'And we do fancy our chances of beating Swansea at home.
'Some family and friends are thinking we are already playing Liverpool, so if we lose it's going to be the worst feeling I've had in football.''
|Swansea are top of League One because they are a great side and their manager Roberto Martinez has got them playing some fantastic football.|
'However, they won't enjoy coming to Westleigh Park. It's a tight little ground; it's a sell-out and there will be a great atmosphere. That will help us and could be the difference.
'There's no pressure on us. Swansea are the pros; the full-time boys.''
|"The odds may be slightly better but we still have a huge task ahead of us. If we reproduce the same commitment and effort and maintain our shape you never know. Funnier things have happened.|
"Swansea have shown all season they are the best team in League One and are a fantastic side. I should imagine the last thing they wanted to do was come down here for a replay and they will possibly look at the game a little bit differently after the first encounter.
"The possible carrot for the winner is a tie against Liverpool at Anfield and I am sure they will want that just as much as we do.''
