Swans send Pompey crashing out

Published Add your comment

Holders Portsmouth suffered the ultimate humiliation as Swansea's on-loan Southampton winger Nathan Dyer sent them crashing out of the FA Cup following the 2-0 result.

Dyer kept his promise to thrive on the animosity at Fratton Park by playing a crucial role in Pompey's downfall, topped by a glorious 27th-minute opener.

The tireless Jason Scotland, who set-up Dyer, inflicted further misery on Tony Adams' side when he slotted home a penalty in first-half injury time.
