'Cup tie is important for us'

Kristoffer Nordfeldt has highlighted the importance of Swansea City’s Emirates FA Cup fifth-round replay against Sheffield Wednesday tonight (8.05pm).

The Swans are set for their third consecutive replay at the Liberty in this season’s competition following the 0-0 draw at Hillsborough 10 days ago.

And Nordfeldt sees the game as another opportunity to impress as he looks to challenge Lukasz Fabianski for the No. 1 jersey.

Victory over the Owls would see the Swans progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the first time since 1964, and that's something the goalkeeper feels puts added emphasis onto the fixture.

“Personally, it’s important for me to get more games under my belt,” he tells tonight’s Jack Magazine.

“I’ve been fortunate that the managers I’ve played under have allowed me to play in the cup competitions since I’ve been here. 

“It’s also important for the club because we haven’t reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for a long time.”

*You can read the full interview with Kristoffer Nordfeldt in tonight’s Jack Magazine.

The goalkeeper talks about making history with the Swans and the prospect of representing Sweden at the World Cup.

Also in this edition, Nathan Dyer reflects on his time at the club after surpassing 300 appearances in SA1, while Kyle Naughton reveals 10 things you may not know about him.
