Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is happy for his players to take the plaudits from fans before today's clash with Newcastle United.

Laudrup has told his players to keep their focus for the rest of the season.

But he will not stop them enjoying a heroes' welcome at the Liberty Stadium today.

"It would be great to win and to get to 40 points, but I don't want to take anything away from the celebrations.

"This is the first major trophy.

"People will always remember this season and this final."
