Swansea are severely depleted for their FA Cup fourth-round replay at home to Notts County.

"It's important if it's the best result in the (club's) history, but the most important thing is the attitude of the players that made all the difference", Carvalhal said.

Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal on injuries to Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony said: "When one Swan falls it is a chance for another Swan to fly". "I spoke to them before the game that we had a challenge".

Dyer made it 3-0 on the half-hour with a low shot from just the edge of the penalty area, before Noor Husin got County on the scoresheet after 36 minutes.

Among the goal scorers for Swansea was England-born striker with Nigerian parents Tammy Abraham who scored a brace.

Defender Kyle Naughton made it five eight minutes after the restart.

Daniel James marked his debut with a goal on 84 minutes to complete the rout.

Former Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal will be making a quick return to Hillsborough this month.

And on an terrible Spotland pitch, Ian Henderson scored the only goal of the game early in the second half to earn League One strugglers Rochdale a 1-0 victory over Millwall, setting up a potential fifth-round meeting with Tottenham, who host Newport County in their replay on Wednesday.

Birmingham had taken the lead on 52 minutes when Che Adams turned on the edge of the penalty area to drill in a low shot.

With Millwall fielding a weakened team, Ian Henderson ignored the awful condition of the Spotland pitch to settle a scrappy game when he slotted home from close range after 53 minutes.

Top-flight strugglers Huddersfield will face Manchester United in the fifth round after winning 4-1 at second-tier Birmingham after extra time.

Town pulled clear in extra time with Steve Mounie heading the visitors into the lead before Rajiv van La Parra slotted in a rebound and Ince added a fourth with a fierce drive.
