Tranmere 2-6 Swansea: Second-half onslaught sees Swansea through in the FA Cup

A total of seven goals were scored between both sides in the second, as Swansea City turn on the style to comfortably see past Tranmere in the FA Cup third round, reports BBC Sport.

Swansea took the lead after half an hour through Nathan Dyer, which was the only goal on the first-half. But things changed after the break.

Tom Carroll scored minutes into the second-half to doubled Swansea lead. Another youngster Modou Barrow got on the scoresheet minutes before the hour mark as Swansea started to dominant proceedings.

Tranmere briefly threatened a comeback, with Max Power pulling a goal back for the hosts. But Swansea restored their lead minutes later through Bafetimbi Gomis.

Cole Stockton scored late on against City, a late double from Wayne Routledge and Gomis turned the score into a very one-sided affair.
