Birmingham ease through

Published Add your comment

Birmingham cruised into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the second successive season with a 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday - but Alexander Hleb could be facing Wembley heartbreak.

Hleb set up the first two goals for Jean Beausejour and Obafemi Martins but was then stretchered off and looks doubtful for next weekend's Carling Cup final with his former club Arsenal.

Full-back David Murphy scored the third goal early in the second period and Birmingham were comfortable winners despite making eight changes.
