  95. Keiran Herbert says: 'Hello as a I am a swansea city fan I am expecting them to win, I am predicting the score to be 4-1 win to swansea with ki michu(2) and graham scoring. Then hopefully we will be facing either Bradford or Aston Villa in the semi final.' Cheers Keiran, we're about to get underway.

  96. My prediction: I'm a Bradford fan and would love Boro to win to make a possible semi-final tie closer to home to I reckon the Swans will have too much for a Boro defence weakened by Woodgate's absence so I'm going for a 3-1 win for the Swans which pays a handsome 11/1 with Sky Bet!
