Laudrup's Swans travel to the Broadfield Stadium after back-to-back Premier League defeats to Aston Villa and Everton.
It had all begun so well for Swansea with impressive victories over QPR and West Ham but Saturday's 3-0 home defeat by the Toffees was alarming and Laudrup wants a win.
"This is what Tuesday can bring by going through to the next round," he said.
"We want to get that winning feeling back because you go from everything being perfect by winning two games and getting a draw where we played very well, and then suddenly you lose two games. You have to be careful this run does not extend.
"We don't want to lose three games and then it's four games since we last won. Football turns quickly and that's why we need to get back on the winning track as soon as possible."
Although Swansea will be favourites against League One opposition, the Dane is not exactly relishing the prospect.
"It's not a very good game to play," he added.
"When you play a League One team everyone expects you to win because you are Swansea and you play in the Premier League.
"You have much more to lose. It puts pressure on everybody. The players can't consider that this is just the Capital One Cup and not the Premier League.
"Everyone knows the Premier League is the daily bread but we want to go as far as possible in the cup."
Laudrup is likely to rotate his squad with several senior players set for a rest. But that will present an opportunity for the youngsters.
The Swans boss said: "I want to win but it's true that we have players who have already been out that came back on Saturday like Ashley and Jonathan. These players probably won't play on Tuesday.
"(Nathan) Dyer is banned, it is Chico's last game of his ban and Kemy (Agustien) is still out.
"But we will make a list and the rest will come from the Under-21 team. We are talking about the future and they will get the opportunity to show what they can do in these games. But I want to win this game."
