Swansea City can win the FA Cup this season, according to first team coach Alan Curtis.

The Swans have been drawn away at Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the fourth round after beating League Two's Tranmere 6-2 in round three.

If Swansea get similarly favourable draws in later rounds, Curtis believes they could win the tournament.

"It's not beyond the realms of possibility we can go all the way," Curtis told BBC's Radio Wales Sport.

"It depends on the draw and you've got to be fortunate.

"If we can get through that [game against Blackburn], again looking for a kind draw and then you just keep edging your way further and further up the competition."

Swansea won the League Cup in 2013, the club's first major trophy.

With that cup pedigree and a healthy current Premier League position of ninth, Curtis believes the Swans are well placed for a strong run in the FA Cup.

"Years ago when you were looking at the draw, you were really looking for a big team at home, or even a big team away to get some revenue," he added.

"But I think those days are gone now.

"We never feel we are an established Premier League side but we have been there for four or five years and more than held our own."
