Swansea face Premiership side Sheffield United in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

The match will be played on the weekend on 6/7th January.

Kenny Jackett said he was delighted to get through and wants a home tie in the next round: ‘I’m delighted to come through,”

‘Darlington is a difficult place to come. They are on a good run, under a new manager, and the pitch was heavy.

‘But we turned in a good, battling performance in difficult circumstances. Apart from the injuries we had, a lot of the squad were hit by illness overnight.

‘The third round is where we wanted to be and it will be fantastic for the club if we get a big club at home. The Liberty Stadium hasn’t staged a big cup tie yet, so this could be it.”
