Neil Taylor: Wants the club to go all the way in the FA Cup
Swansea left-back Neil Taylor is hoping to make it a Welsh cup double by matching Cardiff's feat of getting to Wembley.
Cardiff secured their place in the Carling Cup final with a dramatic 3-1 penalty shoot-out victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday night to set up a Wembley encounter with Liverpool next month.
Swansea, meanwhile, are enjoying their Premier League adventure and could be forgiven for not prioritising their trip to Bolton in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday - but Taylor sees it differently.
"I want to play, to be part of the FA Cup run - all the boys want to be involved," he said. "Although we understand that changes may have to be made.
"We want to do really well, I think we showed that at Barnsley in the last round.
"It helps the confidence, it was another away win. It will certainly help going into Chelsea if we can get a positive result.
"We still love the FA Cup, the magic's still there.
"It would be great for us to get to Wembley again after Cardiff did it the other night.
"They have a tough game against Liverpool in the final but it's great for them, and great for Welsh football."
Taylor also had a taste of Wembley when he played in Wales' 1-0 defeat there at the hands of England in September.
He added: "I'd love to go to Wembley again and you go there in the semi-finals of this competition and we've got a squad more than capable of getting there.
"You can find yourself in the quarters, semis or even the final if you get the right path.
"Some big teams are bound to go out in this round and hopefully we can stay in it and then you never know what can happen."
Despite Taylor's excitement, Swansea boss Rodgers is set to make changes to the side given Tuesday's league game against Chelsea.
On-loan Tottenham defender Steven Caulker is unavailable but Alan Tate is included in the squad and Chelsea starlet Josh McEachran is set to be involved as he will not be eligible against his parent club.
Even so, Taylor is keen to gain the psychological edge ahead of the Premier League match between the two clubs in April.
He added: "They won a game at home against Liverpool which they haven't done for a little while - their home form has been a little bit ropey.
"They've picked up a great win and their tails will be up, so for us to go there and get a result before we go there, and lay down a stamp for the league later in the season would be great.
"But we're just concentrating on Saturday and the FA Cup for now."
