Stoke cruise into quarter-finals

Published Add your comment

Stoke secured a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals for a second successive season with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brighton at the Britannia Stadium.

The visitors were undone by three first-half headers, with John Carew netting after 14 minutes and his strike partner Jon Walters making it 2-0 eight minutes later.

Walters then set up Potters captain Ryan Shawcross just before the interval, and although Brighton improved in the second period, they were unable to reduce the deficit.
