Tammy Abraham ends 14-game goal drought as Swansea thrash Notts County

Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County must take hit and keep smiling' Swansea's incedible revival since Carlos Carvalhal's arrival

The Terriers prevailed 4-1.

After a scoring drought of just 12 goals in the first 21 league games of the season, in 2018 Swansea have scored 6 goals in their 5 league games.

Having gone off the boil in recent months, and having suffered a few injury niggles, Abraham is still looking to fully recapture his match sharpness, but tonight's brace will see him gain a major confidence boost, and he will now aim to sparkle for the Swans in the coming months. They made Notts County look like they are not a good team, but they are a good team.

"Their finishing was Premier League standard and if you give them opportunities they are going to punish you".

"I talked to them before the game and said play with a high motivation as we did against Arsenal and Liverpool".

Despite their turn in form, Swansea's first team did receive a blow at the weekend as both Leroy Fer and Wilfried Bony accrued injuries that put both players out for the rest of the season.

"I'm very happy and very proud of my players", Carvalhal said, according to Sky Sports.

Notts County suffered two home defeats against Exeter and Crawley, before their impressive performance in the original tie versus Swansea.

Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge and Tom Carroll bagged Swansea's other three goals, while Noor Husin's goal for County was a minor consolation on a tough night for Kevin Nolan's side, but it's Swansea that progressed easily to set up a fifth-round tie with Sheffield Wednesday.

'As I got injured the boys were giving good performances, so it was always going to be hard to get back into the team.

Swansea demolished Notts County 8-1 at the Liberty Stadium in Tuesday night's fourth round replay to ensure easy progression to the next stage.

"We need to concentrate on what is important, which is the league".

It seems the Portuguese press has a new favourite (don't tell Wolves), so prepare for a whole list of players to be pushed the club's way if Carvalhal stays on for next season.
