Macclesfield 4-1 Swansea

Swansea were unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup by a four-goal blitz in eight minutes by a rampant Macclesfield side who finally won with ease.

The rout started on the hour as Chris Byrne headed home from close range after a cross from Richard Lambert and less than 60 seconds later, Lee Glover hammered home the second from the edge of the penalty area.

The former Nottingham Forest man then scored his 11th goal of the season when he got on the end of another Lambert cross to prod the ball home after 66 minutes.

Worse was to follow for the Welsh side as they conceded a fourth goal when Byrne lobbed home from 15 yards after an astute pass from Steve Hitchin.

Nick Cusack scored a consolation goal with just five minutes remaining when he prodded home David Romo's cross from six yards but it was too little, too late for the disappointing Swans.


Macclesfield: Wilson, Hitchen, Tinson, Ridler, Adams, Keen, Priest, Byrne, Tracey, Glover, Lambert. Subs: McAvoy, Askey, O'Neill, Munroe, Hodgson.

Swansea: Freestone, Todd, Cusack, Bound, Terry Evans, Brodie, Coates, Howard, Steve Evans, Sidibe, Williams. Subs: Jones, Phillips, Watkin, Romo, Duffy.

Referee: M Brandwood (Lichfield).
