Swansea Cup hero Dyer: Portsmouth boos inspired me

Nathan Dyer says Portsmouth boos inspired his goal scoring performance in Swansea City's FA Cup victory on Saturday.

On-loan at Swansea from Southampton, Dyer was verbally abused every time he touched the ball but said: "I was expecting to come here and get some stick, but the way to answer it is with a good performance and a win.

"Actually, it inspired me because you just want to prove people wrong. As soon as I joined Swansea I said they were a Premier League side and play some great football, and on our day we can match anybody."
