LineFromTo

Good evening. Welcome to a slightly

cold south Wales. Swansea were

0:00:350:00:39

beaten for the first time in 11

games on Saturday, and to date

0:00:390:00:44

Carlos Carvalhal's former team come

to town. Sheffield Wednesday are

0:00:440:00:49

17th in the championship, so 19

places below Swansea. Kick of just a

0:00:490:00:53

couple of minutes away. I'm joined

by my colleagues for this game.

0:00:530:01:02

Swansea's third straight we play in

the cup. Carlos Carvalhal is nervous

0:01:020:01:07

and has said it is like the Police

Academy films. First there was one,

0:01:070:01:12

and now there is too many.

Probably

from his point of view, yes. It is

0:01:120:01:17

how they have dealt with those

replays. Particularly in the last

0:01:170:01:20

row they were very impressive and I

think they will be the same tonight.

0:01:200:01:24

Particularly with the attacking

ethos. They have got attacking

0:01:240:01:27

players in the side, so of course it

is setting up a site to go and be

0:01:270:01:31

adventurous.

I want to talk about

goalkeepers. Cameron Dawson was

0:01:310:01:35

excellent in the first game and made

a sensational save.

Yes, he

0:01:350:01:42

certainly did. He was brilliant with

one particular one, the reflex save

0:01:420:01:46

with his left hand. Kept him in the

game. Lucky with the forehand. That

0:01:460:01:51

reflects their was awesome. It was

in a good position.

22 years old.

0:01:510:02:00

They have 222-year-olds in the

squad, which probably helped each

0:02:000:02:03

other.

I think it would and the fact

that they get on very well.

0:02:030:02:07

Otherwise they would not be in the

club together. I think also both

0:02:070:02:13

goalkeepers getting enough time.

Whether it is out on loan or at the

0:02:130:02:17

club.

Just time to hear from both

managers. Starting with the home

0:02:170:02:20

team.

Not because the opponents are

the worst or better than others, but

0:02:200:02:27

because we have more players. We in

the last game we finished with three

0:02:270:02:38

boys from the cup. We have given

chances to the boys. But we respect

0:02:380:02:47

the competition and I think our

first 11 today is a strong side. I

0:02:470:02:53

think we will play with a good team.

We have the chance to come with less

0:02:530:03:00

teams, so the motivation has to also

be from inside and the pressure you

0:03:000:03:05

must see from the first minute until

the last minute, so the motivation

0:03:050:03:09

has come from each other. And

together we must try to make the

0:03:090:03:13

best day for us.

So a place in the

quarterfinals awaits either Swansea

0:03:130:03:24

in the Premier League, or Sheffield

Wednesday of the championship. Do

0:03:240:03:29

you think the Sheffield Wednesday

manager, Kevin, they are seven

0:03:290:03:33

points above the relegation zone, do

you think he is just finding which

0:03:330:03:36

players he will want to keep our

next year and getting some kind of

0:03:360:03:39

balance in the club? Given some of

the sides in the championship are

0:03:390:03:43

unlikely to go down.

Yes, but of

course you have to get as secure as

0:03:430:03:48

you can as quickly as you can. An

element is building for next season

0:03:480:03:52

and getting players together before

next season. Certainly these sorts

0:03:520:03:56

of games, with that in mind, will

tell the manager a lot.

Swansea will

0:03:560:04:01

want the momentum they had before

the weekend defeat at Brighton to

0:04:010:04:04

continue.

I think that is very much

the case. It is important that they

0:04:040:04:08

continue that and pick themselves up

after the Brighton defeat and

0:04:080:04:11

hopefully that is only a blip for

them and they continued their really

0:04:110:04:15

good run at home that they have had

recently.

These two do not want to

0:04:150:04:18

get any more answers. They want to

go and find a hot chocolate. It is

0:04:180:04:23

minus two Celsius here at the

Liberty Stadium. It is Swansea

0:04:230:04:27

versus Sheffield Wednesday. I will

hand you

0:04:270:04:28

versus Sheffield Wednesday. I will

hand you to the commentary team.

0:04:280:04:32

Thank you. Good evening everyone. It

is the replay that neither of these

0:04:320:04:36

sides wanted, but still a place in

the last eight of the FA Cup were

0:04:360:04:40

Swansea haven't been in 54 years and

where Sheffield Wednesday are trying

0:04:400:04:45

to get for only the second time in

25 years. The winners, remember, at

0:04:450:04:52

home to Spurs or Rochdale, who must

replay themselves tomorrow evening.

0:04:520:04:57

Five changes from both managers this

evening. Still strength amongst

0:04:570:05:03

their ranks. Kristoffer Nordfeldt,

the Swedish international, continues

0:05:030:05:07

were Swansea. Kyle Bartley comes

into the back three. Sam Clucas will

0:05:070:05:13

play at left wing-back tonight. Dyer

and Routledge they hope will provide

0:05:130:05:18

the ammunition for Tammy Abraham,

who has four goals in his last five

0:05:180:05:22

starts.

Cameron Dawson continues

with his fourth game in the FA Cup

0:05:220:05:28

in the Sheffield Wednesday goal.

Glenn Loovens comes into the back

0:05:280:05:34

three. He reached an FA Cup final in

his Cardiff days. David Jones is

0:05:340:05:40

amongst those to come into midfield.

There is a return after injury for

0:05:400:05:44

Jordan Rhodes, his 50th appearance

for Sheffield Wednesday. Seven games

0:05:440:05:48

without a goal. Once again, if the

reunion for Carlos Carvalhal, the

0:05:480:05:57

club that he led to a play-off final

and semifinal. Sacked on Christmas

0:05:570:06:03

Eve after three straight defeats. He

couldn't do the job on his return to

0:06:030:06:08

Hillsborough. We must have a winner

tonight. Stewart Attwell is the man

0:06:080:06:15

in the middle. Great team. Glenn

Loovens, Federico Fernandez the two

0:06:150:06:21

captains. And he does have

assistance tonight as well, Stewart

0:06:210:06:27

Attwell.

0:06:270:06:33

Attwell. With VAR. Tammy Abraham got

to hear past Notts County in the

0:06:330:06:38

fourth round replay. Hasn't started

a league game since December and

0:06:380:06:41

Jordan Rhodes has had a frustrating

time with injury in his back -- and

0:06:410:06:47

here's back to lead the line against

the Portuguese international Lucas

0:06:470:06:54

Joao. Swansea saw there are ten

match unbeaten run under their new

0:06:540:07:00

manager end at Brighton at the

weekend. Looking to pick up the

0:07:000:07:03

batting again and win a replay

again. And it will be Sheffield

0:07:030:07:09

Wednesday 17th in the championship,

beating as well at the weekend.

0:07:090:07:22

beating as well at the weekend. The

winners to face Spurs or Rochdale at

0:07:220:07:25

home in the quarterfinals of the FA

Cup. Mark Lawrenson to bring warm

0:07:250:07:29

and watching this one with me. What

you expect?

I'm hoping we get a good

0:07:290:07:34

game, that's the most important

thing I think also from Swansea's

0:07:340:07:37

point of view, lost at the weekend,

West Ham this weekend, why wouldn't

0:07:370:07:42

you want to win the game? That is

the first thing. Wednesday at the

0:07:420:07:46

same. If few bites of the bottom of

the championship. In women wouldn't

0:07:460:07:49

have do the confidence very good. A

free kick in the championship after

0:07:490:07:58

a foul by Fernandes.

0:07:580:08:05

a foul by Fernandes.

A conversation

taking place here.

0:08:070:08:14

taking place here. Looks as though

it will be Adam Reach with that left

0:08:140:08:18

foot, the former Middlesbrough

player, to swing this in. It is.

0:08:180:08:25

Only as far as Butterfield, who

tried his luck. By Abraham. Too

0:08:250:08:32

strong for Routledge. Another player

by Venancio, the Portuguese player

0:08:320:08:39

brought to the club by Carlos

Carvalhal before he left.

A free

0:08:390:08:45

kick by Adam Reach. He has got more

quality than that.

0:08:450:08:52

quality than that.

Not quite as

predictable as we all think at

0:08:530:08:55

times.

0:08:550:08:58

Not since 1964 have Swansea got past

the fifth round of the FA Cup. The

0:09:050:09:10

furthest they have ever been is a

couple of semifinals.

Weddings they

0:09:100:09:16

really are five at the back. It is

not a three. It is flat five.

One of

0:09:160:09:23

those was stretching there. Pudil to

get the contact.

0:09:230:09:32

get the contact. First corner of the

game goes Swansea's way.

Why is he

0:09:320:09:38

putting too upfront? -- two.

Carroll

has taken it short to Routledge.

0:09:380:09:53

Back in from Carroll. Kyle Bartley's

header.

He actually got too much on

0:09:530:10:01

it. It needed a bit of a flip,

really. Having gambled with the two

0:10:010:10:06

upfront, they got caught on the

short corner. Two against one.

0:10:060:10:13

short corner. Two against one.

Two

defeats in 13 games since he arrived

0:10:130:10:16

at Swansea in all competitions.

Fantastic, isn't it?

0:10:160:10:27

Fantastic, isn't it?

We should point

out that Swansea have only won five

0:10:270:10:30

of their previous 23 before he came

to south Wales. Trying to get a

0:10:300:10:38

second attempt to pull his former

club out of the FA Cup tonight.

0:10:380:10:51

Another transfer Connor Roberts in

the right wingback position, the

0:10:580:11:01

Welsh international. This man, Sam

Clucas.

0:11:010:11:10

Dyer was taken off ten minutes

before half-time at Brighton in the

0:11:210:11:24

defeat at the weekend.

I think

straightaway Wednesday's problem is

0:11:240:11:29

they are outnumbered in midfield

here, with this rigid five at the

0:11:290:11:33

back. Swansea have an extra man on

the ball all the time.

0:11:330:11:36

Aimed towards Abraham and stayed

onside.

0:11:580:12:10

It is a Sheffield Wednesday through.

0:12:280:12:34

-- throw.

0:12:350:12:40

Luke I

0:12:480:12:53

that was a fair battle. Roberts won

it for Swansea.

0:13:060:13:18

it for Swansea.

There is a rigid

line of five and they are playing

0:13:180:13:24

Joao up front with Rhodes. In the

midfield, only three.

0:13:240:13:32

midfield, only three. Consequently,

they can't really get out.

Away by

0:13:320:13:35

Pudil.

0:13:350:13:40

Pudil.

No pressure, is there? No

pressure on the Swansea player with

0:13:410:13:45

the ball.

0:13:450:13:50

All the way through for Connor

Roberts.

Started quite brightly.

0:13:560:14:03

Lots of touches, Connor Roberts.

Almost 1000 have made the trip from

0:14:030:14:14

Sheffield, which is a stunning

effort in these temperatures, with

0:14:140:14:19

the distance.

Absolutely. And that

white stuff that was falling, I'm

0:14:190:14:23

not having that. He loses points for

being like that.

0:14:230:14:30

Clucas, featured in the whole team

that broke Sheffield Wednesday

0:14:390:14:42

hearts in the play-off final at

Wembley under Carlos Carvalhal.

0:14:420:14:52

Wembley under Carlos Carvalhal. Just

a bit too strong for Ki. Given away

0:14:520:14:56

by Jordan Rhodes, who's got it back

now. Certainly Wednesday trying to

0:14:560:15:01

get bodies into that penalty area.

In towards Joao. Flicked off van der

0:15:010:15:08

Hoorn and then cleared by Connor

Roberts.

Wasn't a bad corner, was

0:15:080:15:12

it?

0:15:120:15:17

That wasn't a bad ball either was

it?

0:15:180:15:25

Swansea have won their last five

games here. The last time they won

0:15:250:15:30

six in a row at the Liberty Stadium,

over ten years ago. It would set

0:15:300:15:39

them up nicely for that latest huge

Premier League game at the bottom at

0:15:390:15:44

home to West Ham on Saturday. In

fact they have three pivotal matches

0:15:440:15:49

in a row in the Premier League.

0:15:490:15:58

Floated in towards Joao. Couldn't

make contact, the Portuguese

0:16:030:16:08

international.

He looked good in the

air, just forgot to make any

0:16:080:16:13

contact!

0:16:130:16:21

All the way back to Dawson in the

Sheffield Wednesday goal who made

0:16:380:16:49

his debut under Carlos Carvahal in

the Championship. Wednesday have 15

0:16:490:16:56

out and three cup-tied tonight.

Do

you know how many of those 18 would

0:16:560:17:00

have played in the strongest side?

I

think plenty.

OK. Obviously not all

0:17:000:17:06

of them?

No!

0:17:060:17:15

The offside flag is up.

He had a lot

of time to look across the line,

0:17:150:17:24

George Boyd, as well.

0:17:240:17:32

Van der Hoorn had that effort saved

in the first game at Hillsborough.

0:17:370:17:44

Foul on Abraham.

A bit better

Fernandez, one of the three

0:17:560:18:03

centre-backs looks forward and wants

to play it. A lot of teams in the

0:18:030:18:08

Premier League, the back three or

four there are so many passes side

0:18:080:18:12

ways. If it is not on for the

forward pass that it fine, but

0:18:120:18:19

sometimes it is automatic and all it

is doing is delaying the time you

0:18:190:18:23

get forward for the opposition to

just sit in.

0:18:230:18:31

just sit in.

Clucas. Abraham was the

only option.

A bit on his heels.

0:18:320:18:40

Wasn't the best of passes.

0:18:400:18:49

Kept Dawson on his toes.

0:18:500:18:58

Loovens' clearance only as far as

Routledge.

0:19:400:19:49

Every Sheffield Wednesday player

back inside their own half. They

0:20:020:20:07

have only won three games in their

last 12. Two away wins in their last

0:20:070:20:13

17 matches for Sheffield Wednesday.

Certainly they can be positive, they

0:20:130:20:21

have to have a result one way or the

other.

13 minutes and not a shot at

0:20:210:20:28

goal - I'll say nothing!

0:20:280:20:36

Cleared by Loovens.

0:21:250:21:35

Played in the 2008 Cup Final for

Cardiff in their defeat to

0:21:380:21:42

Portsmouth.

0:21:420:21:45

Roberts had time to steady himself.

Caught at full stretch by Dawson.

0:21:580:22:03

That was a bit too close to the

goalkeeper. A better cross though

0:22:030:22:08

and one touch and in. You don't need

any more than two from here.

0:22:080:22:19

He didn't have a viable option

there.

0:22:430:22:55

Ki will try and get forward, won't

he?

0:22:560:23:04

No sign of the eight goals they

scored in their last replay here

0:23:250:23:30

against Notts County.

0:23:300:23:37

against Notts County. Joao did well

to pick out Adam Reach. He wants it

0:23:370:23:42

on that left foot again. Butterfield

was looking to try and slide that

0:23:420:23:49

through to Rhodes.

0:23:490:23:53

You could see Joao's idea.

If it had

opened up he might have taken

0:24:310:24:36

Bartley on.

0:24:360:24:45

FA cup replay nothing new to these

Swansea players, they needed three

0:24:450:24:54

consecutive replays. If they get

that quarter-final berth it will be

0:24:540:25:02

the first time in 54 years.

You've

got quite early with that stat,

0:25:020:25:08

haven't you?

0:25:080:25:11

I don't think we have seen in both

teams one player trying to run in

0:25:310:25:36

behind. Everything's in front of

opposition all the time, isn't it?

0:25:360:25:45

Abraham trying to turn away from

Loovens who is personalised by

0:25:450:25:51

Stuart Attwell.

0:25:510:26:01

Can Swansea ask a question from

here.

It has to be accurate. So

0:26:210:26:26

narrow.

Sheffield Wednesday have

everybody back to defend this. Ki

0:26:260:26:34

trying to get the angle for Carroll

to cross, which he did. Abraham

0:26:340:26:39

tried to get his head to it.

Clever

free kick.

Swansea corner.

Very

0:26:390:26:46

clever.

0:26:460:26:54

Ki will take it. It was an inviting

one. Sheffield Wednesday did well to

0:27:030:27:09

defend that.

0:27:090:27:12

Jacob Butterfield on loan from Derby

for the season.

Craiky. Crikey he

0:27:400:27:47

was never going to reach that. A

waste because they played the ball

0:27:470:27:51

quite well out of defence, Sheffield

Wednesday.

0:27:510:28:00

Only Dyer in the centre. And

committed the foul in the end.

Hmm.

0:28:160:28:30

He has definitely made contact.

Didn't seem to be that bad, did it?

0:28:340:28:38

Stood it up as well, Clucas.

0:28:380:28:47

Sorry, nothing in it. The slightest

of touches. Dear, oh dear!

He was

0:28:530:29:05

always second favourite in that size

battle.

Well, was he really touched,

0:29:050:29:11

the defender?

0:29:110:29:14

Sheffield Wednesday needed a replay

in the third round against Carlisle

0:29:210:29:25

and then beat Reading before these

two ties. A Swansea free kick.

0:29:250:29:36

It is a Sheffield Wednesday free

kick.

Losing control, wasn't he,

0:29:450:29:50

Joao?

0:29:500:29:55

Joao?

Leon Britton is back in the

Swansea team. He has twice been a

0:29:590:30:05

care taker manager after Paul

Clement's sacking.

Is he now back to

0:30:050:30:13

player or coaching as well?

Just a

player.

0:30:130:30:21

That's gone against Sheffield

Wednesday.

0:30:370:30:43

Wednesday.

I'm just not sure what

that was. Jordan Rhodes is the

0:30:480:30:55

nicest guy.

0:30:550:31:05

nicest guy.

His 50th appearance for

Wednesday tonight.

0:31:050:31:16

Swansea pushing, not really probing.

0:31:300:31:36

Lifted in towards Clucas, who

improvised. Would have been

0:31:390:31:42

penalised anyway.

Yes, his

improvisation was really good,

0:31:420:31:46

wasn't it? The first time they have

looked to kind of run in behind,

0:31:460:31:54

certainly. With this rigid line of

five Sheffield Wednesday defenders,

0:31:540:31:58

that's the only way you're going to

break the deadlock.

They've been

0:31:580:32:05

defensively drilled, Sheffield

Wednesday, since their manager took

0:32:050:32:09

charge. Six clean sheets he's kept

since he's been in charge. Took that

0:32:090:32:17

from the wrong place, did he? That

moustache needs some work, doesn't

0:32:170:32:23

it? That's your department. It was.

The good old days.

0:32:230:32:42

Swansea have scored 11 wins already.

What was the statistic, 60 odd

0:32:550:33:07

percent to something?

0:33:070:33:12

Beaten to that. Cleared by Loovens.

Now Reach.

0:33:220:33:30

Now Reach. Joao is the only player

ahead of him. A challenge from van

0:33:300:33:33

der Hoorn.

A very good tackle

indeed.

0:33:330:33:48

Swansea didn't want these replays.

Would love the adventure to

0:34:000:34:03

continue.

0:34:030:34:08

continue. You would have appreciated

this one.

Yeah, excellent, wasn't

0:34:080:34:13

it?

Like Lawrence?

Arguably.

I can

say that, you can't.

Not at the

0:34:130:34:27

moment.

I can vouch for that. Here's

Ki.

0:34:270:34:37

Ki. Bartley continuing to try to

charge his way through.

Never seen

0:34:370:34:44

George Boyd play at left-back

before.

0:34:440:34:54

before. They are away from home and

obviously they don't want to concede

0:34:540:34:57

early, Sheffield Wednesday. They are

playing themselves into the game,

0:34:570:35:00

but you'd is really feel that

Swansea are playing into their

0:35:000:35:03

hands.

0:35:030:35:08

hands. Very cautious, aren't they?

0:35:080:35:19

Butterfield was quickly closed down,

but Sheffield Wednesday still have

0:35:310:35:34

it with Boyd. Up against Roberts.

Have they got it across? Aim of the

0:35:340:35:38

head of Bartley. That almost turned

into trouble. In fact, it did. Now

0:35:380:35:46

Butterfield. Three in the penalty

area. A cross blocked by Bartley.

0:35:460:35:54

Good pressure from Wednesday.

0:35:540:35:59

Good pressure from Wednesday.

Jack

Hunt, the former Huddersfield

0:36:030:36:04

player. He's going to take the

throw. Good early pass from Jones,

0:36:040:36:12

and then a good try from Jacob

Butterfield. The dangers still

0:36:120:36:17

hasn't gone. Joao. Nordfeldt was

required again to deny Jordan

0:36:170:36:22

Rhodes.

That looked really, really

good chance. Great ball by into

0:36:220:36:29

Rhodes. Lovely interplay as well

from Sheffield Wednesday. Very good

0:36:290:36:35

save. This is the ball coming into

Jordan Rhodes.

0:36:350:36:45

Jordan Rhodes. Tripped up, I think,

didn't he? Would back him to score

0:36:450:36:52

normally from there.

First corner of

the game far Sheffield Wednesday.

0:36:520:36:58

Half an hour in. Adam Reach with it.

Nordfeldt with the punch. Now can

0:36:580:37:04

Swansea break? Dyer into Routledge.

Connor Roberts had burst forward

0:37:040:37:11

from the right-hand side. So play is

over. Tammy Abraham. Here is Roberts

0:37:110:37:16

now. Abraham wanted back. That was

the intention as well.

Needed a

0:37:160:37:23

little more care on the pass. Needed

curling round. Tammy Abraham 's is

0:37:230:37:29

in. Good break by Swansea.

0:37:290:37:37

Four goals in his last five starts,

Tammy Abraham. Two in this FA Cup

0:37:370:37:43

run so far. Although the strike that

he thought was his at Brighton has

0:37:430:37:48

been talked of. That is now an own

goal. Let's see what Swansea can do

0:37:480:37:53

from this corner. Van der Hoorn.

Cleared by Venancio.

0:37:530:38:02

Spectacular effort.

It was

spectacular, but when you see the

0:38:500:38:58

replay, look at the run that Tammy

Abraham makes. I'll give him the

0:38:580:39:02

spectacular bit, but you will see

this from this. Look where Tammy

0:39:020:39:06

Abraham is. Just a little header

down to him. Thing is, once you've

0:39:060:39:12

gone for the old spectacular, there

is nothing you can do. You can't

0:39:120:39:15

change your mind. A little bit

clueless, wasn't he?

The winners of

0:39:150:39:23

this type are at home to Rochdale or

Spurs and these two meet again in

0:39:230:39:27

their replay tomorrow. You can see

highlights from Wembley on the red

0:39:270:39:30

button from 10pm. Lester and Chelsea

will be live on BBC One on Sunday

0:39:300:39:40

the 18th of March. It is a 4:30pm

kick-off.

0:39:400:39:50

So far, so good.

Stewart Atwell does

have assistance tonight. Andre

0:39:500:40:00

Mariner is back at Stockley Park.

0:40:000:40:11

If required, VAR is with us and on

offer.

It the future.

It's already

0:40:120:40:19

created a little bit of history, one

way or another, in the FA Cup this

0:40:190:40:23

season.

But you know what? If they

get the decision right, they just

0:40:230:40:26

need to speed it up.

0:40:260:40:37

That's a Sheffield Wednesday free

kick. Much to Nathan Dyer's

0:41:000:41:06

frustration.

0:41:060:41:16

Last time Sheffield Wednesday were

in the FA Cup quarterfinals was

0:41:160:41:21

1997. They lost 2-0 to Wimbledon.

Seven points above the relegation

0:41:210:41:31

zone in the championship. Wasn't in

their preseason script.

0:41:310:41:39

their preseason script. Butterfield.

Good early ball. Lucas Joao, he's

0:41:390:41:44

all alone at the moment. And he went

alone. And it needed the

0:41:440:41:50

intervention of Nordfeldt.

It is a

comfortable save, isn't it? A little

0:41:500:41:54

bit lower on the side would have

been more testing, obviously. Does

0:41:540:41:57

like to run at people, Joao, doesn't

he?

0:41:570:42:04

he?

For in his last six for the

24-year-old. -- four. On loan by

0:42:060:42:13

Carlos Carvalhal at schedules

Wednesday.

0:42:130:42:27

Two caps for Portugal.

0:42:330:42:44

Venancio, to the feet of

Butterfield. Given away by Reach.

0:42:580:43:06

Waiting for some support. And he's

got Dyer to his right. And its

0:43:060:43:09

Nathan Dyer! And he couldn't quite

reach it. Out came Cameron Dawson.

0:43:090:43:17

Yap, Dawson did extremely well to

defend the situation. Wasn't the

0:43:170:43:21

best passers, unfortunately. Does

well here.

Here is Lucas Joao at the

0:43:210:43:27

other end, trying to create a

shooting opportunity. And then Boyd,

0:43:270:43:33

right across the face of goal.

Just

a little over a hit, the pass, in

0:43:330:43:39

terms of the Swansea break.

0:43:390:43:45

terms of the Swansea break. No

substitution?

0:43:450:43:50

Confident goalkeeping from Cameron

Dawson. Jack Hunt is a problem here

0:43:570:44:01

for Sheffield Wednesday, the right

wingback.

0:44:010:44:09

wingback. Fortunately for Jos

Luhukay,

0:44:090:44:17

Luhukay, he has substitutes. So it

is the end of Jack Hunt's night. A

0:44:180:44:26

force to change for Sheffield

Wednesday with the introduction of

0:44:260:44:29

26-year-old Liam Palmer.

0:44:290:44:35

The one club man, apart from the

season on loan a few years ago with

0:44:410:44:44

Tranmere.

0:44:440:44:53

Abraham. A little fortunate there.

0:45:120:45:20

Didn't quite strike it sweetly. Well

done van der Hoorn he has come out

0:45:430:45:48

of the back three and attacked the

space. And he managed to work a

0:45:480:45:53

chance for Swansea.

0:45:530:45:59

chance for Swansea.

Just the one

goal this season for Ki. Scored in a

0:46:010:46:04

Scottish Cup Final win during his

time with Celtic.

0:46:040:46:12

time with Celtic. Swansea yet to

have a shot on target.

Hmm.

0:46:120:46:20

It is an evening to be wrapped up.

No goals to warm them up yet.

0:46:410:46:53

Into the last five minutes of this

first half.

0:47:330:47:41

first half. Swansea have won their

last five games at the Liberty

0:47:410:47:45

Stadium. Abraham!

Better, wasn't it?

The cross was better and Abraham's

0:47:450:47:53

trying to attack it. Just didn't

quite get his feet sorted.

0:47:530:48:03

quite get his feet sorted.

He scored

in both games last season in the

0:48:030:48:07

Championship against Sheffield

Wednesday in his loan spell with

0:48:070:48:12

Bristol City where, he scored 26

goals. They know all about him.

0:48:120:48:16

There is no doubt he has got

promise. There is no doubt about

0:48:160:48:23

that whatsoever. He has got to be a

bit stronger. He just wants it down

0:48:230:48:29

the sides. But the five-man defence,

it has been really difficult. It is

0:48:290:48:36

part of the learning process.

Still

20 years of age.

That is it.

0:48:360:48:49

That is out of play from Venancio.

He didn't want a replay. He will

0:49:210:49:31

only want 90 minutes with three huge

Premier League games looming.

I've

0:49:310:49:42

just found them cautious. If

anything Sheffield Wednesday have

0:49:420:49:46

been the better side, created better

opportunities - albeit not many.

0:49:460:49:58

Dyer's progress stopped by Pudil.

Hmm. Just taken him out, hasn't he?

0:50:000:50:07

Will he book him? No. Could have

been worthy of a booking. He has

0:50:070:50:16

made no attempt to play the ball.

Completely stopped the rhythm of the

0:50:160:50:20

break as well. You never want to

condone yellows, but it's a yellow

0:50:200:50:27

He escapes. Carroll takes the free

kick and no problems for Cameron

0:50:310:50:36

Dawson.

0:50:360:50:39

Picked up by Routledge.

0:51:060:51:14

Patient from Swansea. Is there

anything at the end of it? Lifted in

0:51:340:51:39

by Carroll. And confidently taken by

Cameron Dawson.

Starting position

0:51:390:51:45

yet again, poor cross, mind.

0:51:450:51:54

Abraham.

Well, his run was good. The

first one he has made. First ball

0:52:200:52:29

down the channel. Slowed Loovens

down and gots half a yard and

0:52:290:52:39

obviously the finish was poor. He

got half a yard easy enough. Only

0:52:390:52:43

jogged him. I would say, Steve, that

is the first time they have been

0:52:430:52:49

down the sides of the five-man

defence, Swansea.

0:52:490:53:01

We are into the one minute of added

time at the end of this goalless

0:53:010:53:06

first half.

0:53:060:53:14

That is the last action. It was 0-0

between these two in the first game

0:53:200:53:26

at Hillsborough and it is the same

scoreline at half-time at the

0:53:260:53:32

Liberty Stadium. Nordfeldt with a

couple of smart saves, the best of

0:53:320:53:40

which to deny Jacob Butterfield.

Sheffield Wednesday have had the

0:53:400:53:45

better chances.

Yes and they have

looked the better team. There is a

0:53:450:53:51

cautiousness about the way Swansea

have approached the game and the

0:53:510:53:56

longer the game goes for - this is

heading for extra time and penalty.

0:53:560:54:00

But they don't want that, Swansea

don't want that. They have got to

0:54:000:54:05

commit one or two more men forward.

At the moment, just not good enough.

0:54:050:54:10

There we go. It is all to play for

in the second half. The winners at

0:54:100:54:18

home to Spurs or Rochdale, remember.

In the quarter-finals. At the

0:54:180:54:28

half-time interval in this replay,

it is Swansea 0, Sheffield Wednesday

0:54:280:54:32

0.

0:54:320:54:33

Kevin Kilbane and Mark Schwarzer are

with me. There has been the odd

0:54:420:54:46

thing but not a great deal.

Yes Mark

said that yes, Sheffield Wednesday

0:54:460:54:52

created the better chances

throughout, but they didn't really

0:54:520:54:55

do enough across the course of the

game. I think they were defending

0:54:550:54:59

deep. I don't think Swansea have

done enough to affect the three

0:54:590:55:03

centre halves from Sheffield

Wednesday. So it has been stagnant

0:55:030:55:07

in the middle.

Do you think the

pressure is all on Swansea, can you

0:55:070:55:15

understand Sheffield Wednesday

playing five at the back as Mark has

0:55:150:55:17

been alluding to?

I can understand

it. You would expect Sheffield

0:55:170:55:24

Wednesday to be more defensive and

try and contain Swansea and hit them

0:55:240:55:28

on the counter. That is what they

have done in the first half. At

0:55:280:55:31

times they got lucky, because of the

quality of final pass of Swansea has

0:55:310:55:35

been off. If they can improve on

that, Sheffield Wednesday will find

0:55:350:55:42

themselves in trouble.

They have had

more clear cut chances?

Yes they had

0:55:420:55:49

the best chance and it took a good

save from Nordfeldt to prevent

0:55:490:55:56

Wednesday from taking the lead.

0:55:560:55:59

It was a good reflex save.

When the

ball was hit, I said goal. He

0:56:050:56:12

reacted quickly to eliminate the

danger. You think Rhodes may get on

0:56:120:56:16

the end of it. But the keeper reacts

well.

They're a striking duo, Joao

0:56:160:56:25

and Rhodes, but Rhodes is going

wide.

That is not where he wants to

0:56:250:56:29

play. He is a box player. He wants

crosses into the area. Joao's

0:56:290:56:33

movement when he has had the chance

has been sharp and he has sharp feet

0:56:330:56:40

in intricate situations. But it has

been fleeting.

If you look at how

0:56:400:56:46

Swansea have approached this,

Abraham has got three centre halves

0:56:460:56:49

to deal with. He is up there on his

own. You want to see him, talking

0:56:490:56:56

about Rhodes going out wide, you

want to see Abraham do something

0:56:560:57:00

similar and work the channels.

I

want to see him affecting the centre

0:57:000:57:04

halves. If you look at Loovens

0:57:040:57:17

and Pudil, he hasn't done enough.

They have played a high line at

0:57:180:57:25

times, Sheffield Wednesday, he has

had opportunities to move behind of

0:57:250:57:28

but I felt throughout the first

half, Dyer has been the bright

0:57:280:57:34

spark. I think they can affect it

more with sharper movement.

They

0:57:340:57:41

make tiet predictable. -- make it

too predictable. They know he is

0:57:410:57:45

going to come short every time,

Abraham, and he is not rarely going

0:57:450:57:49

to turn. When Dyer does it, it is

asking questions and Sheffield

0:57:490:57:54

Wednesday players have to think is

it going behind oar coming short.

0:57:540:57:58

Dyer has been effective in he has

been coming in off the right-hand

0:57:580:58:02

side and finding himself, you

touched on it, pockets of space,

0:58:020:58:05

where he has tried to get on the

half turn and he has been the one

0:58:050:58:10

creative spark for Swansea. I think

they concealed it more from

0:58:100:58:14

Abrahams. He has it in his locker.

Do you have sympathy for Abraham in

0:58:140:58:19

those clips, he has got five

Sheffield Wednesday players around

0:58:190:58:27

him and the holding midfield in

fronts.

Yes, but his job is up front

0:58:270:58:32

to lead the line. He needs to

stretch the team more and create

0:58:320:58:37

room for Dyer and Routledge. When he

does get the ball, he needs to hold

0:58:370:58:41

it up. There were occasions where he

was too easily dispossessed with the

0:58:410:58:47

ball and allowed Sheffield Wednesday

to go forward and attack. He needs

0:58:470:58:51

to be stronger and hold up the ball.

Sometimes it is unselfish running,

0:58:510:58:56

you may not get on the ball, but

what it stretches Sheffield

0:58:560:59:01

Wednesday, forces them deeper and

allows your team-mates to get in

0:59:010:59:04

possession. A thankless task. That

is what happens. You look at Luis

0:59:040:59:09

Suarez, he doesn't have a big

involvement, but look at the video

0:59:090:59:14

of that striker running behind.

Where Swansea have had the most

0:59:140:59:20

success has been on the counter. And

they have been able to exploit the

0:59:200:59:26

space.

Yes Nordfeldt did well.

Rhodes was in front of him before

0:59:260:59:33

the corner was taken. He moved out

of way. Had he stood there the

0:59:330:59:38

keeper wouldn't have been able to

come out. Swansea counter quickly.

0:59:380:59:44

Dyer has been the player, each time

he gets the ball they look

0:59:440:59:48

dangerous. Abraham has made that run

all night. On that occasion it was

0:59:480:59:52

the right run. Because he was in

free space.

This first time he

0:59:520:59:58

didn't get too many opportunities to

do this, make the run forward. It is

0:59:581:00:04

a poor weighted pass to Dyer. But

that was pretty much it from

1:00:041:00:09

Swansea's point of view. The attacks

seemed to peter out around the final

1:00:091:00:15

third. I think we expect more from

Swansea as the Premier League side.

1:00:151:00:21

If you're Sheffield Wednesday, we

have kept them out, had a couple of

1:00:211:00:25

chances, more of the sometime.

Yes

continue to do the same, keep the

1:00:251:00:31

defence tight. Probably more tighter

at times, don't give them too much

1:00:311:00:35

space and at the other end be more

clinical. They have had chances and

1:00:351:00:39

they have to make sure the next one

counts.

1:00:391:00:46

We're going to talk to the Swansea

club captain very shortly, but

1:00:461:00:50

before that we're just looking ahead

to the FA Cup replay still to come.

1:00:501:00:54

That's tomorrow night. It is Spurs

against Rochdale. The first time was

1:00:541:00:59

that sensational 2-2 draw and we

have been spending time with the

1:00:591:01:03

League 1 club at their last training

session before they had done to

1:01:031:01:07

Wembley.

We've been enjoying the

atmosphere, let's hope we get a game

1:01:071:01:13

to enjoy it as well. Henderson!

1:01:131:01:21

to enjoy it as well. Henderson! And

that is a fine finish. Penalty to

1:01:221:01:25

Tottenham. Here's an opportunity!

Would you believe it the dream is

1:01:251:01:38

alive again.

It didn't surprise me,

the way they performed. I know they

1:01:381:01:44

are capable of doing that. I support

the players, but it manifested into

1:01:441:01:49

a super performance. Against a

really top-quality opposition.

He

1:01:491:01:53

looks a really good talent. The Man

of the Match for me.

I checked my

1:01:531:01:59

phone and my mates told me they had

given me Man of the Match and after

1:01:591:02:02

I had found out, then obviously I

was proud of myself and the team.

1:02:021:02:08

The ball just fell for me. It found

the bottom of the corner. We have

1:02:081:02:14

got Wednesday to look forward to

because of it. It's everybody's

1:02:141:02:21

dream to play at Wembley. Not many

people get to play there, so when we

1:02:211:02:25

do play there, we will cherish it

and keep it in our memories. I've

1:02:251:02:29

got 16 of my mates coming and family

as well. I've had to get my children

1:02:291:02:34

a day of school to come down. It's

an opportunity that I may never get

1:02:341:02:38

again, to be there and to be playing

and to be walking out and for my

1:02:381:02:44

children and wife to be there will

be a special moment.

It's a unique

1:02:441:02:47

situation where there are not many

times in your career as a manager or

1:02:471:02:50

a player that you get the

opportunity to go to Wembley, unless

1:02:501:02:54

you're obviously at Tottenham.

We

got to go there with the same

1:02:541:02:59

mentality. It's going to be a tough

night, but there is no better place

1:02:591:03:02

in the world to be tested than at

Wembley, so it is something that we

1:03:021:03:06

will relish and we are really

looking forward to it.

It's going to

1:03:061:03:10

be harder, being at their home

ground. You never know what could

1:03:101:03:13

happen.

You've got to dare to dream.

You have to be brave in your game

1:03:131:03:17

planning and the way that you want

to play the game. You're trying to

1:03:171:03:20

win a football match, and that's all

that's important.

So that game

1:03:201:03:28

tomorrow night, 7:45pm kicked off.

You'll be able to listen to it on

1:03:281:03:32

BBC Radio five. Highlights will be

on the red button from 10pm tomorrow

1:03:321:03:38

evening. Other live sport is England

against France on Thursday evening,

1:03:381:03:45

also on the red button. Also on

Thursday, you can catch the world

1:03:451:03:49

indoor Championships in the

athletics on BBC Two from 7pm.

1:03:491:03:53

Delighted to say

1:03:531:04:02

Delighted to say that the chairman

of Swansea has joined us. Obviously,

1:04:021:04:06

you're wrapped up warm. Did you want

to see a little more attacking from

1:04:061:04:09

your side in that first half?

Yes.

We really didn't have a cutting edge

1:04:091:04:13

today. We were lucky with that last

pass. A little movement. I think the

1:04:131:04:17

back five from Sheffield have been

too comfortable. Everything is in

1:04:171:04:21

front of them, so I think we need to

try to obviously gain more chances.

1:04:211:04:26

Is it hard in games like this when

aside comes and plays five at the

1:04:261:04:30

back?

It is hard because they are

looking for the break. They are

1:04:301:04:35

happily sitting in the low medium

block and users have to move quick

1:04:351:04:38

and maybe a simple man running

behind. At the moment, they look

1:04:381:04:44

very narrow. Which is very

difficult. If there is a space, you

1:04:441:04:49

can exploit.

In general, is it a

positive squad at the moment, thanks

1:04:491:04:53

to the new manager?

It is, it is. A

clean sheet is always good. But I

1:04:531:04:59

think we should be showing more

attacking. I think the manager is

1:04:591:05:06

obviously trying to do that in

training, trying to be more positive

1:05:061:05:09

going forward. So I think today you

have seen a bit of that, but hoping

1:05:091:05:14

in the second half we come out with

more enthusiasm.

1:05:141:05:21

more enthusiasm.

You mentioned the

positivity. We say a manager in

1:05:221:05:25

Carlos Carvalhal who is bright and

bubbly. Is that how you stay to

1:05:251:05:29

date? Is he bringing that spark onto

the training ground?

Definitely. He

1:05:291:05:33

a man who always sees the positive

side in every single situation. He

1:05:331:05:37

knows he is coming to a or team that

were struggling and straightaway he

1:05:371:05:42

came in and on his head is the

pressure and obviously in training

1:05:421:05:47

he tries to work to be positive and

have that freedom.

1:05:471:05:57

have that freedom.

How important is

next week's performance to get back

1:05:591:06:02

to winning ways and continue that

momentum?

It is always important. We

1:06:021:06:05

are making history. We have never

been in the quarterfinals of the FA

1:06:051:06:09

Cup, so for the players that is an

extra motivation. When you lose to

1:06:091:06:14

Brighton, you want to bounce back

with the next game, and I think

1:06:141:06:17

that's tonight. It's important to

win for these to be since, to bounce

1:06:171:06:20

back and to make history.

Yapping

here a very long time and I mean

1:06:201:06:24

that as a compliment. Always smooth

topped the guests whenever they come

1:06:241:06:31

on. Can you put your finger on why

it has maybe been harder for the

1:06:311:06:35

last couple of seasons?

It is

difficult to tell. You can see

1:06:351:06:39

Swansea has always been recognised

by style of play, always played

1:06:391:06:45

attacking, attractive football. We

have played with our experienced

1:06:451:06:50

players on the ball and I think we

have lost that the last few seasons.

1:06:501:06:55

It was maybe a cycle that has

changed because we have players that

1:06:551:06:59

maybe did not suit the style. But I

think with every single team it

1:06:591:07:03

happens that you have a cycle where

you play a type of football and then

1:07:031:07:09

things change. I think we are in a

tradition now so I think we can go

1:07:091:07:12

back to that sell soon.

That

transition in any cycle is

1:07:121:07:16

difficult, isn't it?

It is

difficult. You can see it in big

1:07:161:07:20

teams. It happens to them all and

Swansea is no different. It is all

1:07:201:07:26

about sticking together and working

hard and getting results. I think

1:07:261:07:29

that's what we have to do now.

Thank

you very much for joining us. We

1:07:291:07:33

wish you well for the rest of the

season. It is time for us to rejoin

1:07:331:07:38

our commentary team, and don't

forget that there are extra time and

1:07:381:07:41

penalties on the way if this stays a

stalemate after 90 minutes. Here are

1:07:411:07:48

Mark Lawrenson and Steve Bowlen.

News of a change because Jordan

1:07:481:08:02

News of a change because Jordan Ayew

and Martin Olsson are coming on.

1:08:021:08:09

Martin Olsson, the Swedish

international who started the

1:08:111:08:17

original tie at Hillsborough ten

days ago. That is a positive change.

1:08:171:08:22

It is positive. That is the thing

about the rest of the Swansea

1:08:221:08:27

players, when they see that, it is a

case of, "Come on, let's go for it.

1:08:271:08:34

Let's try to settle this tie."

1:08:341:08:40

Let's try to settle this tie."

It

will be beating third from bottom in

1:08:401:08:42

the Premier League with just seven

victories all season to get the

1:08:421:08:48

second half of this replay under

way.

Presumably, Clucas will play

1:08:481:08:52

more central.

Also on that left-hand

side. 29th meeting between these two

1:08:521:09:02

clubs. The last time Sheffield

Wednesday came to the Liberty

1:09:021:09:05

Stadium was in the championship back

in 2010 and it finished 0-0. But

1:09:051:09:11

there must be a winner tonight.

Preferably sooner rather than later.

1:09:111:09:22

Wednesday just momentarily stopped

there. That was not the worst ball

1:09:261:09:29

from Abraham.

There was only one

player in there and it was IU,

1:09:291:09:33

wasn't it? -- it was Jordan Ayew,

wasn't it?

1:09:331:09:50

It was impossible to thread the ball

through to him. A positive start,

1:09:521:09:55

though.

1:09:551:10:05

though.

Palmer's throw.

1:10:051:10:14

Given away by Butterfield. Here is

dire. Jordan Ayew.

1:10:251:10:41

A little more direct from Swansea.

Yes, playing at a quicker pace as

1:10:411:10:45

well. That may unsettle Wednesday at

the back entrance of the quicker

1:10:451:10:51

pace.

1:10:511:10:56

Clucas, fair to say in his most

favoured position now.

1:11:101:11:21

favoured position now. Fernandes

didn't keep that in.

Complete lack

1:11:211:11:25

of communication.

I'm sure he didn't

want to bring on his top scorer at

1:11:251:11:35

half-time, but at least he's tried

to change something.

Well, listen,

1:11:351:11:40

he doesn't want extra time, does he?

West Ham at the weekend.

1:11:401:11:52

Sheffield Wednesday are away at

Bristol City in the championship.

1:11:531:11:57

They want want the extra half an

hour either.

No. Presumably, they

1:11:571:12:02

would stay down here in South Wales,

would they not? Hardly time to go

1:12:021:12:08

home and come back.

1:12:081:12:13

home and come back.

Looking for a

free kick which wasn't forthcoming.

1:12:181:12:22

Was between a dive and fault.

1:12:221:12:29

Was between a dive and fault. -- a a

fall. He thought he would be playing

1:12:291:12:35

at left-back, did he, George Boyd?

1:12:351:12:41

Van der Hoorn. Still Connor Roberts.

1:12:561:13:10

Trying to credit through to Jordan

Ayew. A little unfortunate not to

1:13:101:13:15

get the corner.

Yes. Really did

well, actually. Better, though,

1:13:151:13:22

Swansea. A bit of movement, bit of

thought.

1:13:221:13:33

Sheffield Wednesday are in the

middle of of nine games in 28 days.

1:13:371:13:41

This one added to that.

1:13:411:13:47

This one added to that. There are

still very much in with a shout of

1:13:471:13:52

adding another one, and FA Cup

quarterfinal. Going to either Spurs

1:13:521:13:56

or Rochdale.

It's a big prize, isn't

it? It really is.

1:13:561:14:11

Venancio with the Sheffield

Wednesday throw. Cleared comfortably

1:14:551:14:58

by van der Hoorn.

Better from

Abraham. Better with the ball, kept

1:14:581:15:06

it.

Martin Olsen took a chance.

1:15:061:15:15

The stage Israels certainly set for

somebody to produce a moment of

1:16:051:16:11

quality. -- the stage is certainly

set for somebody to produce a moment

1:16:111:16:17

of quality.

1:16:171:16:22

Sheffield Wednesday get every man

back inside their own half.

1:16:251:16:34

That was good defending by Pudil.

1:16:381:16:44

Ayew positive. Dyer took over. There

is no flag. There is now!

A lovely

1:16:571:17:03

flicked ball through. Clever.

Straightaway, Ayew's made a

1:17:031:17:07

difference. He is actually

committing defenders, midfielders

1:17:071:17:14

and Sheffield Wednesday don't look

so rock solid at the back. Tight.

1:17:141:17:24

Carroll. Good try. And the follow up

is in from Ayew slam! He has only

1:17:511:18:02

Bon the pitch nine minutes, but he

has put Swansea in front. Right

1:18:021:18:07

place, right time and the Premier

League team lead.

Yeah, extremely

1:18:071:18:11

well worked. You said it, the start

of the second half the positive

1:18:111:18:17

substitution. And we have got a

goal.

1:18:171:18:24

goal. Just check that it's OK. A

great strike by Carroll and Ayew

1:18:261:18:32

kept his head. Keeper no chance.

1:18:321:18:40

Game on!

1:18:451:18:49

That is what he was brought on for.

His ninth goal of the season. His

1:18:511:18:57

second in the FA Cup. And Swansea

have the advantage.

They have just

1:18:571:19:02

looked a different team, haven't

they from the 46th minute.

His first

1:19:021:19:12

FA cup goal was in their first

replay back in the third round

1:19:121:19:16

against Wolves.

Abraham has looked a

different player, because he has

1:19:161:19:22

players around him and he is getting

decent service and he is already

1:19:221:19:27

looking a better player. Clucas sat

in there, better position,

1:19:271:19:32

comfortable.

1:19:321:19:37

comfortable.

As Carlos Carvahal has

proved already at Swansea, he is not

1:19:391:19:42

afraid to take a gamble, make a

change. It worked against him at the

1:19:421:19:54

weekend, he brought Dyer on after 39

minutes. Bringing Ayew on has

1:19:541:20:00

brought its reward.

He has not

really gambled, has he? Bringing one

1:20:001:20:06

of his best attacking players on.

Who said there is a God?

1:20:061:20:21

Interested to see what they have

got, if they can react.

Joao fouled

1:20:211:20:27

by van der Hoorn.

1:20:271:20:37

A silly foul, he is not going

anywhere.

1:20:391:20:50

It is a long way for a shot

certainly.

1:20:561:21:07

Reach and Rhodes are behind this.

Jordan Rhodes is certainly assessing

1:21:091:21:14

the situation.

It is Jonny

Wilkinson!

1:21:141:21:18

Hope it doesn't end up like him. It

is on target but in the arms of

1:21:211:21:30

Nordfeldt.

Just thrown his cap on

it.

1:21:301:21:38

it. The other thing with Ayew, they

can't pick him up, Sheffield

1:21:381:21:42

Wednesday. He is going short. Going

long. Coming inside. He is just

1:21:421:21:47

playing in that little gap isn't he?

Between the central midfield players

1:21:471:21:53

and the back five.

1:21:531:22:02

Reach in towards Rhodes, who is

penalised.

He is entitled to go for

1:22:161:22:22

it. A little bit clumsy. It's

nothing else. Decent ball in from

1:22:221:22:30

Reach.

1:22:301:22:35

Reach. Caught him on the end of his

foot. Won't be able to feel his toes

1:22:351:22:40

any way, he will be all right.

Here

is the man who has broken the

1:22:401:22:44

deadlock.

Good play, wasn't it?

Lovely strike that it. It is a

1:22:441:22:53

little bit lucky, Ayew.

1:22:531:23:00

Rhodes with the cross and that was a

chance for Reach. Cleared by

1:23:001:23:06

Fernandez.

That was a chance. A good

ball in as well.

1:23:061:23:18

Jones tried to slide that into

Palmer. The flag has gone up. It is

1:23:201:23:25

a goal kick.

A spirited response

from Wednesday, certainly.

1:23:251:23:35

Carval wanting to change things I

think.

1:23:431:23:49

We have had an hour in South Wales.

And the first goal of the two games

1:23:591:24:05

between these two. Jordan Ayew of

Swansea.

1:24:051:24:16

Suddenly Carroll's come alive as

well.

1:24:261:24:29

Here he is again, the former Spurs

player. Scored in the 8-1 here in

1:24:361:24:43

the replay against Notts County.

1:24:431:24:52

Bartley was out part of season with

a knee injury. Free kick to Swansea.

1:24:561:25:04

Just delayed it a bit actually, the

-- referee.

1:25:041:25:14

-- referee. Free kick all day.

1:25:141:25:23

That is Atdhe Nuhiu.

The game's

starting to stretch and open out.

1:25:361:25:51

Untidy from van der Hoorn.

No need

to force it though, Swansea,

1:26:041:26:11

especially at the back.

That's gone

Sheffield Wednesday's way.

1:26:111:26:21

Jones has played in the Premier

League for four different teams.

Did

1:26:311:26:39

he start at Manchester United?

He

did. Won the youth Cup as captain.

1:26:391:26:50

Good pressing, Swansea.

1:26:581:27:05

First thing Ayew has done wrong.

1:27:081:27:16

Oh!

Come on Jordan Rhodes, he is an

assassin all of a sudden.

He found

1:27:371:27:47

Olsen. For the first time tonight,

Stuart Attwell is going to produce a

1:27:471:27:55

yellow card.

1:27:551:28:02

yellow card.

Can't complain. I

wouldn't think he has had many

1:28:021:28:11

bookings in his career. Certainly

not for tackling!

1:28:111:28:17

Sheffield Wednesday have lost five

of their last seven FA Cup replays.

1:28:351:28:39

They need a response.

1:28:391:28:46

They need a response.

I think the

change is imminent, Sheffield

1:28:471:28:50

Wednesday.

1:28:501:28:53

Surely Swansea will think here a

second one kills the game.

Yes.

1:29:401:29:48

second one kills the game.

Yes. Just

can't afford to be sloppy, that's

1:29:481:29:51

all.

1:29:511:29:55

Building potentially down this

left-hand side, Swansea. What is

1:30:321:30:39

Palmer going to do? Fouled thereby

Martin Olsson.

Bad foul as well,

1:30:391:30:48

isn't it? He's got nowhere to go.

Give him an easy way out now.

1:30:481:30:57

Give him an easy way out now.

Well,

this is the reaction of Luhukay, the

1:30:571:31:04

Sheffield Wednesday manager. Jacob

Butterfield, and one from Derby.

1:31:041:31:07

Reach the semifinals ten years ago

with Barnsley. He is going to

1:31:071:31:11

depart. Atdhe Nuhiu, the Kosovo

International, who has three goals

1:31:111:31:17

in three games in this cup run. He's

going to come on.

He's different,

1:31:171:31:25

isn't he? Most certainly. Very

different.

1:31:251:31:33

different.

So he joins Rhodes and

Joao.

Just hope they can get the

1:31:341:31:41

service to the tree.

1:31:411:31:46

service to the tree.

One of those

midfield players sacrificed with 22

1:31:511:31:55

minutes remaining. There is the

first ball towards him.

1:31:551:32:07

first ball towards him. Sheffield

Wednesday throw.

1:32:071:32:18

Nice control from Abraham. Certainly

appreciated the support from Jordan

1:32:451:32:57

Ayew in the second half.

Starting to

look a better player, isn't he?

1:32:571:33:08

Carlos Cabal won the Portuguese

league ten years ago. As it stands,

1:33:091:33:14

they are just away from the

semifinal.

1:33:141:33:25

Now it's Swansea with every player

inside their own half.

1:33:481:33:57

inside their own half. Both these

teams shipped four goals, remember?

1:33:571:34:07

One is 17th in the championship.

Somebody told me in Sheffield

1:34:071:34:18

Wednesday's game at the weekend,

there were 17 fouls, 16 by Sheffield

1:34:181:34:26

Wednesday, and only won by Aston

Villa. In the championship. I find

1:34:261:34:29

that really difficult to believe.

And also the imbalance.

1:34:291:34:37

And also the imbalance.

Quiet

weekend for you, was it?

How did you

1:34:371:34:42

guess?

1:34:421:34:46

guess?

That wasn't a foul by

Loovens.

1:34:511:34:57

Loovens.

You can hear the home

crowd, trying to create more urgency

1:35:001:35:05

to settle this game.

1:35:051:35:11

Another Swansea throw.

1:35:181:35:28

As it stands, it will be Swansea at

home in the quarterfinals to either

1:35:341:35:38

Tottenham or Rochdale. They play

tomorrow, of course, at Wembley. You

1:35:381:35:42

can see highlights of that on the

red button from 10pm.

1:35:421:35:54

Sheffield Wednesday still in this

cup tie. Three times winners of this

1:36:041:36:09

competition. Five times finalists.

Hoping to be quarterfinalists for

1:36:091:36:16

only the second time in 25 years.

They need a goal. Here's Lucas Joao.

1:36:161:36:24

Tidied up by Martin Olsson.

They've

gone floppy, Swansea.

Jordan Ayew on

1:36:241:36:33

the run. Fouled by Loovens.

1:36:331:36:42

the run. Fouled by Loovens.

Quite a

clever fouling. Stops the break from

1:36:421:36:45

Jordan Ayew.

1:36:451:36:51

Jordan Ayew. I'm sure he's saying to

the referee.

1:36:551:37:01

the referee.

Not any warmer, that's

for sure, particularly for the

1:37:021:37:05

younger generation.

Where is your

hat, boss?

1:37:051:37:15

Aimed towards van der Hoorn. Got

something on it. Safely gathered by

1:37:221:37:27

Dawson.

1:37:271:37:34

Dawson. That has fallen to Dyer.

Only Abraham in the middle.

1:37:341:37:43

Away by van der Hoorn. Backed by

Boyd.

1:37:491:37:59

Boyd.

Lucky, Swansea. Giving the

ball away just outside their own

1:38:041:38:07

box. I think it was Carroll, wasn't

it?

1:38:071:38:19

Those Sheffield Wednesday fans know

a little more than a quarter of an

1:38:221:38:32

hour left to continue this journey.

All branches of Sheffield Wednesday.

1:38:321:38:38

18 seasons out of the Premier League

now.

1:38:381:38:47

now.

Lost it again, Carroll.

1:38:471:38:58

Still a little tentative, Swansea.

One back by Jones.

Just a little

1:39:141:39:19

panicky when they've got the ball.

There is no great urgency. Their 1-0

1:39:191:39:24

up.

1:39:241:39:28

up.

No foul on Jones. Now, can

Swansea make something of this?

1:39:301:39:36

Abraham stopped by Loovens.

So

obvious, wasn't it?

1:39:361:39:45

That was far too strong for Lucas

Joao.

1:39:501:40:02

They certainly remember the last

time Sheffield Wednesday beat

1:40:031:40:07

top-flight opposition in the FA Cup.

That was back in 1993 in the

1:40:071:40:11

semifinal, when they famously beat

Sheffield United. Can they come from

1:40:111:40:18

behind to do it again here tonight?

1:40:181:40:29

Almost made his presence though.

That's the first decent cross

1:40:381:40:44

they've got into him. Given his size

and something different. Very

1:40:441:40:48

awkward.

1:40:481:40:53

He was running before he almost

played the past, wasn't he? You

1:40:591:41:02

could see what he was trying to do.

Shouldn't laugh.

But you did.

Been

1:41:021:41:07

there.

1:41:071:41:17

Still not putting his shirt on.

Hope

no one is having dirty at home. --

1:41:231:41:32

is having their tea at home.

1:41:321:41:43

Driven away by Fernandes.

Again. No

pressure, no nothing. Just keep it.

1:41:461:42:02

Little bit of space now.

1:42:191:42:25

Another one. What is mystifying

really with Sheffield Wednesday,

1:43:021:43:06

they've got three up top, and two of

them are big, strong, tall, and a

1:43:061:43:10

handful, and they're about to go out

of the competition.

1:43:101:43:21

of the competition.

Early from

Jones.

1:43:211:43:26

Dyer's in space. A transfer Dyer!

Nathan Dyer to make it 2-0 with ten

1:43:351:43:43

minutes to go. And Swansea will hope

that that's the goal that takes them

1:43:431:43:51

the quarterfinals.

Lovely finish,

wasn't it? Took his time. Just that

1:43:511:44:00

quality now that we can see the

difference between the two sides.

1:44:001:44:07

What he did as well but he got

himself in a position where he

1:44:101:44:13

wasn't offside, looked across the

line, how many times do you see

1:44:131:44:18

that? Through the goalkeeper's legs.

His third goal of the season. All of

1:44:181:44:28

them have come in the FA Cup. Two

double Swansea's advantage. Through

1:44:281:44:34

the legs of Dawson. Sheffield

Wednesday were going to make a

1:44:341:44:41

substitution anyway before that

goal. Almen Abdi. His return from

1:44:411:44:48

injury is there a change, but he

comes on at 2-0 as a posed to 1-0.

1:44:481:44:53

Good luck.

1:44:531:44:59

Good luck.

The Swiss international

has replaced Jordan Rhodes, but a

1:44:591:45:03

difficult nine minutes ahead now for

Sheffield Wednesday. No foul.

1:45:031:45:14

Sheffield Wednesday. No foul. Jordan

Roberts couldn't pick the past.

1:45:161:45:22

Lucas Joao has stayed down after

that challenge.

Yes, I think he ran

1:45:291:45:33

into the defender. It was pinched

off him.

1:45:331:45:43

Hand on heart, did you think this

was going to be 0-0?

Yes!

Makes two

1:45:591:46:05

of us!

Leon Britton is going to make

his return. He hasn't played since

1:46:051:46:12

October, against Leicester. He is

going to replace the second goal

1:46:121:46:20

scorer, Nathan Dyer. The supporters

hope he has helped them into the

1:46:201:46:26

quarter-finals.

He has played in

every division for them hasn't he?

1:46:261:46:33

He has and he has two care taker

managerial games on his CV as well.

1:46:331:46:40

He is back from a groin injury. He

actually had that short spell at

1:46:401:46:48

Sheffield United in between.

Sheffield Wednesday will remember

1:46:481:46:52

that. Perfect time for him to come

back on.

1:46:521:46:56

Here is the 35-year-old now.

1:47:161:47:24

Sheffield Wednesday's best chances

were in the first half. It has made

1:47:401:47:48

a massive difference the

substitutions at half-time. All I

1:47:481:47:53

want to do is live by the sea? Well

move then.

You already do.

1:47:531:48:00

Occasionally, when it comes in.

1:48:001:48:10

He made a couple of smart saves in

the first half.

Yes. His first save

1:48:121:48:19

was the best. It looked from here

right behind it as if it was going

1:48:191:48:24

in the far corner.

You sensed it was

going to be a tie where the first

1:48:241:48:28

goal was going to be pivotal. So it

has proved.

1:48:281:48:37

has proved.

Sheffield Wednesday just

had, was it Reach at 1-0 down, a

1:48:381:48:43

half chance, I don't think it was

any more than that, was it?

1:48:431:48:55

any more than that, was it?

Tom

Carroll, do you coach that, across

1:48:551:48:58

your own penalty area?

I would hope

not. Or that.

1:48:581:49:07

It made a big difference for

Swansea, they will come in tomorrow

1:49:121:49:15

probably and do a light training

session. But the fact they got beat

1:49:151:49:21

at the weekend, they have won

tonight and West Ham at the weekend

1:49:211:49:24

- confidence.

And only two defeats

in 14 days under Carlos Carvahal.

1:49:241:49:36

Yes the turn around is staggering.

Bottom of the Premier League when he

1:49:361:49:39

walked in, remember.

Got a bit of

humour about him as well, hasn't he?

1:49:391:49:47

He has certainly added something.

1:49:471:49:57

Safely taken by Nordfeldt.

1:50:021:50:05

He has not made a save second half,

I don't think. I can't remember one.

1:50:091:50:18

13 goals in this cup run, Swansea

now. The good news for them - they

1:50:311:50:38

can't have any more replays.

Of

course yes.

And they're still in the

1:50:381:50:42

competition.

1:50:421:50:47

They have Sheffield Wednesday have

tried to play.

1:51:181:51:24

Good feet from Abraham. Trying to

find Olsen.

1:51:541:52:03

Ayew.

1:52:031:52:13

A clever player, isn't he? He has

that element of class about him as

1:52:181:52:23

well. He is head and shoulders above

most of the players on this pitch.

1:52:231:52:29

He is easily the best player and he

has only played half of it.

Would

1:52:291:52:34

you give him your Man of the Match?

He has got it. He has got it.

A

1:52:341:52:43

prestigeous honour.

He has changed

the game. You can see the quality.

1:52:431:52:54

He has suddenly made the back five

of Sheffield Wednesday extremely

1:53:031:53:07

nervous. No one came close in the

first half.

1:53:071:53:16

Carlos Carvahal has certainly put a

smile back on Swansea faces. Yes,

1:53:371:53:42

the Premier League is the priority

and they have three huge games in a

1:53:421:53:48

row, West Ham, Huddersfield and

Southampton, but they will also look

1:53:481:53:52

forward to an FA Cup quarter-final

at home. Three minutes of added

1:53:521:53:57

time. And they can watch the match

at Wembley to see who they will

1:53:571:54:06

play.

Yes and no VAR!

Yet!

1:54:061:54:14

play.

Yes and no VAR!

Yet! It has

been a pleasant evening for Andre

1:54:141:54:20

Marriner.

Yes he will have a big

cigar on and his slippers!

1:54:201:54:30

Sheffield Wednesday will concentrate

on just making sure they don't get

1:54:491:54:54

dragged any closer to the relegation

zone in the Championship.

1:54:541:55:01

zone in the Championship. Seven

points above the relegation zone.

1:55:031:55:05

They will hope to get some of their

injured players back.

1:55:051:55:15

Olson.

A relieved Carlos Carlal, I

think. I don't think it was that

1:55:241:55:35

bad!

1:55:351:55:40

bad!

He is another one who didn't

want extra time!

Yep.

1:55:401:55:53

Final minute of stoppage time.

1:56:001:56:09

Too intricate from Clucas. He has

removed any doubt. Two against Notts

1:56:171:56:31

County in the fourth round replay.

And his goal was all important.

1:56:311:56:38

A little piece of history for

Swansea City, they're into the FA

1:56:511:56:59

Cup quarter-finals for the first

time in 54 years. Carlos Carvahal

1:56:591:57:05

has knocked out his old club. Ayew's

goal important. Dyer settled it and

1:57:051:57:13

they can relax and watch at Wembley

to find out if they're at home to

1:57:131:57:18

Spurs or Rochdale in the last eight.

They deserved it. Second half

1:57:181:57:23

especially. The quality of the play.

The introduction of Ayew made all

1:57:231:57:28

the difference. They battled hard

Sheffield Wednesday, but over the 90

1:57:281:57:34

-plus minutes a fully deserved

victory for Swansea.

While the

1:57:341:57:38

Premier League is the priority, not

since 1964 have they progressed

1:57:381:57:44

beyond the fifth round. Now they

have and we have our seventh name in

1:57:441:57:52

the FA Cup quarter-finals. It has

finished at the Liberty Stadium,

1:57:521:57:59

Swansea 2, Sheffield Wednesday 0.

1:57:591:58:03

Thank you to Steve and Mark. Swansea

got there in the end. Into the FA

1:58:031:58:10

Cup quarter-finals after that 2-0

win. Let's talk Swansea's second

1:58:101:58:18

goal scorer, Nathan Dyer has joined

us. Tough work to break them down?

1:58:181:58:22

Yes it was. It was hard at their

place in the first leg. We knew it

1:58:221:58:28

was going to be tough. They played

defensively strong. We made the runs

1:58:281:58:33

to break the defence. It took a

while.

Do you think Ayew coming on

1:58:331:58:39

helped you do that. His movement

that made some more space for you

1:58:391:58:42

and you were both able to get

behind.

Yes he commits a lot of

1:58:421:58:47

players going forward and it allows

everyone else to exploit the spaces.

1:58:471:58:53

It is good when you have player like

that to have an extra goal threat

1:58:531:58:57

and it paid off.

How do you feel

your understanding with Tammy

1:58:571:59:03

Abrahams is coming along.

It is

good. He is a young boy and he has a

1:59:031:59:08

lot of ability. He was playing the

ball earlier. I let him now. This

1:59:081:59:13

time he had the awareness to pick me

up. It was a low strike I got on

1:59:131:59:18

target.

Is it just us in the media

that look at your cup run and say,

1:59:181:59:25

it might help you in the league, or

do you feel as a squad that the cup

1:59:251:59:28

run has helped you?

I think so.

Having close games back-to-back

1:59:281:59:34

games and having that confidence

which we needed to build up and

1:59:341:59:38

getting the wins as well, draws,

win, helped us go into the Premier

1:59:381:59:41

League knowing that we have a better

understanding.

Thank you. I will

1:59:411:59:52

take your microphone. Thank you.

They will want to play Rochdale, but

1:59:521:59:57

at least they have a quarter-final

at home.

Yes that is the positive

1:59:572:00:01

and I think it does, you said,

asking him, about the cup run

2:00:012:00:07

helping. It is the continuous form

that continues that wing streak. I

2:00:072:00:11

think in general that continues that

positivity around the place.

Let's

2:00:112:00:15

show you FA Cup quarter-final draw

then.

2:00:152:00:27

That is it. We are out of time.

Thank you Mark and Kevin. The

2:00:362:00:43

easiest money you have made!

Goodbye.

2:00:432:00:54
