Carroll's delight with first Swans goal
3rd January 2015
Tom Carroll was delighted to score his first Swansea City goal in the FA Cup victory over Tranmere Rovers.
The Swans ran out 6-2 winners at Prenton Park to move into the fourth round draw, which takes place on Monday.
Nathan Dyer gave the visitors a first-half lead before Carroll weaved his way into the box before slotting home with a neat finish.
Bafetimbi Gomis netted a brace while further goals from Modou Barrow and Wayne Routledge sealed a fine afternoon for Garry Monk's side.
"I was over the moon," said Carroll. "I've been waiting a while for the goal but I was delighted in the end.
"I thought we put on a good performance and had quality in the final third.
"I've come in to play games and hopefully I have shown the manager exactly what I can do.
"We have good midfielders here but I want a run in the side and build up my confidence.
"You've got to beat the best in order to win the trophy but to win silverware would be massive achievement for everyone."
