Comments:

Alex Bruce was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering a groin injury in the pre-match warm-up. Curtis Davies was promoted to the starting XI with Michael Dawson taking his place on the bench. Prior to this match The Tigers had only progressed beyond the third round four times (1974, 1976, 1978 and 2014) and unfortunately on each occasion they were eliminated in the fourth round.

Comments:

Since winning the trophy in 2012-13, Swansea City had won every home tie (three) but had been eliminated in each of their two away ties - Birmingham City in 2013-14 and Liverpool last season. Prior to this match the Swans had kept clean sheets in seven of their last nine League Cup games, conceding only in those defeats by Birmingham City and Liverpool.
