MICHAEL Laudrup has told his Swansea City players to savour their open-top bus ride — and then get back on the bike in the Premier League.

Swansea will parade the Capital One Cup through the streets of the city at 4.30pm today.

And though he is keen for Garry Monk and Co to toast their Wembley triumph, Laudrup will then challenge his players to reach 50 Premier League points this season.

Swansea already have 37 points on the board with 11 games of the campaign remaining.

"We need much more than that," Laudrup declared.

"Maybe there will be a reaction after cup final when we play Newcastle (on Saturday), I don't know.

"But we have 11 games to go and we still need points in to get above the 40 points. I still think we can aim even higher, and try to go for 50 points.

"We're ninth in the table and, more or less, we'd like to remain there until the end of the season."

Laudrup wants his players to take a little more time to mark Sunday's 5-0 trouncing of Bradford City.

"In football people always look to the next game, but you have to enjoy these moments when they come," he added.
