Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal hailed the attitude of his side after they romped to an 8-1 FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Notts County.

Carvalhal gave opportunities to a number of his fringe players and they delivered in style, as the Swans recorded their best-ever win in the FA Cup - with both Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer scoring twice against the Magpies.

The way we played made the difference and the attitude was fantastic.

The win set up a visit to Carvalhal's former club, Sheffield Wednesday in round five, with the Portuguese delighted to see another committed display for his improving outfit.

He said after a stunning victory at the Liberty Stadium: "It is important if it is the best result in the history (of the club), but the most important thing is the attitude of the players that made all the difference.

"I told them before the game that we have a challenge. I am very proud of the players as they accepted the challenge.

"They made Notts County look like they are not a good team, but they are a good team. The way we played made the difference and the attitude was fantastic."

The Swans are now unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions, with their upturn in form since the arrival of Carvalhal having seen them give fresh hope to their bid to avoid relegation for the Premier League this season.

City are currently priced at 1/2000 to be relegated, while they are 100/1 to beat the drop and secure their top-flight status for an eighth consecutive season.
