Fulham 1 Blackpool 1

Well at least we`re still in it!

Although judging by the attendance, a paltry 14,473, you could be forgiven for thinking that the significance of the greatest domestic cup competition in the world was lost on some.

Before kick-off, Martin Jol had intimated that he would field his strongest available eleven and that is exactly what he did, with the Dutchman electing to use the same eleven that had won so magnificently at the Hawthorns in the previous fixture.

Unfortunately, whilst in that fixture we had taken the chances that had come our way , yesterday was the complete opposite with Kacaniklic, Dejagah and Ruiz all squandering decent chances before the break.

Blackpool emerged for the second half believing they could get a result that would go down as a cup-shock and on the hour mark their endeavour was rewarded when Delfouneso, on loan from Aston Villa, pulled a low ball back for Ludovic Sylvestre to smash home from the edge of the area.

Fulham now had it all to do and survived a scare that could have seen the go 2-0 down when Ince almost got on the end of a miscue from Eardley. But with ten minutes left, Fulham were level when having believed they`d cleared Ruiz`s corner, Blackpool were stunned to see Giorgis Karagounis crash home a shot into the top corner of the net.

Searching for a winner, Fulham were almost rewarded three minutes from time when Ruiz saw his header come back off the bar.

So it`s off to Bloomfield Road for the replay, Blackpool in January, not very alluring is it!
