Blackpool have entered into the last 16 of the FA Cup after comfortably beating Sheffield Wednesday.

Blackpool came into the match against Sheffield Wednesday with a real chance of getting into the last 16 of the FA Cup. Blackpool did not do well in the FA Cup last season mainly because of their priorities for the Premier league survival. However, this season, they are focusing on the FA Cup.

Millwall also entered into the draw for the last 16 of the FA Cup. Millwall have been drawn against Bolton at home, which is a fixture the London club will be looking forward to.

Millwall were up against Southampton in the match that was to decide the host of the Premier league club Bolton. It was a closely fought encounter, but Millwall came on the right side of the fixture list with a goal in the final few minutes from Liam Feeney.

Meanwhile, Blackpool went to the match against Sheffield Wednesday knowing that they were certainly the favourites for winning this match. Blackpool ran out 3-0 winners against a poor Sheffield Wednesday side. Matt Philips, LuaLua and Sylvestre were the scorers for Blackpool on the night.

The two teams could only manage a 1-1 draw in the first match. The replay was to decide the club progressing into the last 16 of the FA Cup. Matt Phillips opened the scoring for Blackpool, while LuaLua goal in the 25th minute gave Blackpool a decisive advantage over Sheffield Wednesday, who are looking shell-shocked.

LuaLua produced his usual celebration tricks after his excellent goal. Sylvestre then made the game secure from Blackpool after scoring the goal in the second half, which guaranteed Blackpool's entry into the last 16 of the FA Cup. Matt Phillips was the provider this time with a beautiful pass to Sylvestre.

According to the best Championship odds, Blackpool will be back up in the Premier eague before too long.
