Jos Hooiveld wants Southampton to emulate Swansea City

Jos Hooiveld is hoping that Southampton can match Swansea City by winning the League Cup this season.

Defender Jos Hooiveld has urged Southampton to match Swansea City's success in last season's League Cup.

In what was just their second campaign in the Premier League, under the guidance of Michael Laudrup the Swans recorded a 5-0 victory over Bradford City at Wembley to lift the trophy for the first time in the club's history.

The Saints are now also in their second term back in the top flight and having reached round four of the competition thanks to a 2-0 win over Bristol City last night, Hooiveld has expressed an eagerness to emulate Swansea's achievement.

"I think we know have a great team and whatever they throw at us we have to deal with, because we want to get there in the end. What Swansea did last year, we want to do this year," the centre-back told reporters.

The draw will take place following the conclusion of tonight's tie between Manchester United and Liverpool.
