Wayne Routledge insists Swansea City will take nothing for granted when they host Notts County in tonight's Emirates FA Cup fourth-round replay.

The Swans will be favourites to progress to round five of the competition, with a trip to Sheffield Wednesday awaiting tonight's winners.

But Routledge says last week's 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane proves Carlos Carvalhal’s men face a stern test this evening.

“It’s going to be another tough game,” he tells tonight’s Jack Magazine. “Our general mindset is the same as any other game in terms of going out to win. 

“But it’s a different kind of challenge and one we have to adapt to.

“We learned at Meadow Lane that they’re capable of hurting us and, if you take your eye off the ball for one second, you will be punished.

“Hopefully, the game will give players that haven’t featured too often the chance to come in and get minutes under their belt. 

“It’s also an opportunity to get another win. The more we get, the more confidence we can take forward into the Premier League.”

*You can read the full interview with Wayne Routledge in tonight’s Jack Magazine.

The winger talks about catching up with his former team-mates, why holds the utmost respect for Notts County boss Kevin Nolan and reaching personal milestones with the Swans.

Also in this edition, we look back on some memorable FA Cup ties involving the Swans and hear from boss Carvalhal and skipper Angel Rangel.

And there is plenty more in tonight’s Jack Magazine, including a closer look at new signings Andre Ayew and Andy King, as well as all you need to know about Notts County.

This FA Cup issue of Jack Magazine is available for just £2 from around the Liberty, the club shop and online.

Jack Magazine really is a must-have for any Swans fan, so don’t miss out.
