Swansea recorded their biggest-ever FA Cup win as Notts County were demolished 8-1 at the Liberty Stadium.

First-half braces from Tammy Abraham and Nathan Dyer, as well as second-half efforts from Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and debutant Daniel James, saw Swansea cruise into a last-16 tie away to manager Carlos Carvalhal's former club Sheffield Wednesday.

Noor Husin gave County brief hope, making it 3-1 after 35 minutes, but the Sky Bet League Two promotion contenders were blown away on a freezing night in south Wales.

It also gave County an unwanted spot in Swansea history, the margin of defeat bigger than the 7-2 and 6-1 FA Cup scorelines inflicted on non-League sides Folkestone and Rhyl.

Carroll struck the goal of the night after 65 minutes when his 25-yard rasper left Collin grasping at thin air, before James' strike secured Swansea their biggest home win since their move from Vetch Field to the Liberty Stadium in 2005.
