Road to Wembley 2010/11 (3rd Round)

After ending Swindon Supermarine’s excellent run to the FA Cup 2nd Round, Colchester United now had the chance to inflict a wee cup shock of their own as they travelled to Championship side Swansea City. In all honesty to Colchester though, it was probably not the draw they would have wanted. A 520 mile round trip going to a club, who despite their lofty status this season, are not a glamour club compared to the Premiership sides in the draw.


In the end, Colchester needn’t had bothered. While I was watching a close game at Sunderland, Swansea City cruised into the 4th Round with a 4-0 hosing of Colchester. Goals from Garry Monk, Darren Pratley, Cedric van der Gun and Scott Sinclair put the Swans through to another home game, this time against League 1 side Leyton Orient.


Looking at Swansea’s and Orient’s current form, I can only see the Welsh side making it into Round 5 where I hope (for the sake of this feature!) that they have an away draw! But this is the FA Cup, and stranger things have happened….
