Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is keen to get his hands on the Capital One Cup, with the Welsh side preparing to face Middlesbrough at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday.

The teams meet at the last eight stage and the Dane admits 'it would be special' to contest the final at Wembley next February.

Laudrup said: "When you are a smaller club when do you ever get the chance to play for a trophy?

"Being in mid-table or avoiding relegation is great, but it is a special feeling to win a trophy and we can do it with a cup.

"I have been to Wembley as a player, and been to finals as a manager and it's special.

"Cups are so special, you can win, lose or draw in the league, but in the cup it is one or the other - you go on or you're out."
