The Chelsea loanee bagged a brace of goals and assists to help the Swans progress to the fifth round of the competition

Tammy Abraham scored a brace as Swansea City thrashed Notts County 8-1 in Tuesday’s FA Cup fourth-round replay at the Liberty Stadium.

The 20-year-old had failed to find the back of the net since October and his match opener in the 18th minute ended his 14-game barren spell in front of goal.

Abraham registered his brace on the brink of halftime after Nathan Dyer had helped himself with a pair of his own with Noor Hushin scoring the Magpies' only goal of the night.

Further strikes from Kyle Naughton, Wayne Routledge, Tom Carroll and Daniel James sealed an emphatic victory for Carlos Carvalhal’s resurgent side.

Much of the pre-match talks had centred on his young striker, whom prior to his 18th-minute goal had failed to hit the target in 825 minutes. The Portuguese gaffer would definitely be delighted with his response - as he also added two assists to his showing - which was instrumental in ushering the Swans to the Round of 16 of the cup competition.

Abraham, now with scored seven goals in all competitions, will hope to get another opportunity when the south Wales outfit host Burnley in Saturday’s English Premier League fixture.
