Hornets buzzing after win in cup


The midfielder, who broke his duck for the season in Sunday’s Championship defeat at the Liberty Stadium, made no mistake with a 21st-minute effort to exact some revenge in Tuesday night’s quick-fire rematch.

It was no more than the visitors deserved as the hosts failed to provide any real punch.

Hornets caretaker boss Malky Mackay took his side back to south Wales on the back of a 3-1 reverse but this result will have done his prospects of landing the job on a permanent basis some good.

Despite having a place in the last eight at stake, the Swans were lacklustre throughout with Febian Brandy firing straight at Richard Lee and Jordi Gomez hitting the post late on with a free-kick.
