Easy for Swansea

Swansea coasted to a comfortable victory over Tranmere as the League Two strugglers did not threaten an FA Cup upset until it was too late.

The visitors could afford the luxury of making nine changes from their New Year's Day draw against QPR - bringing in six players aged 23 or under - and still progress relatively untroubled against a side fighting for their Football League status 80 places below them.

Their first three goals from Nathan Dyer, on-loan Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll and Gambian youngster Mo Barrow - the latter two with their first for the club - were all tinged with touches of Premier League class.

Max Power fortuitously benefited from charging down Swansea goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel's clearance before Bafetimbi Gomis (twice) and substitute Wayne Routledge - either side of Cole Stockton's header - ensured there was no dramatic turnaround.
