EXTRA carriage and trains will be laid on to help transport the Jack Army to its Wembley showdown next month.

With Swans' first ever appearance in the Capital One Cup final taking place on a Sunday there were initial concerns that the traditional reduced service between South West Wales and the South East would cause travel chaos on February 24.

However First Great Western has confirmed it is to improve its Sunday service to make sure Swans fans enjoy their moment of fame.

A spokesman for the train provider said: "First Great Western is happy to confirm that we plan to operate a number of additional services on February 24, to assist Swansea fans travelling to and from London for the Capital One Cup Final.

"You will not be able to reserve seats on these additional services, and they will be boarded on a first come, first served basis."

Journeys will be longer due to track works.
