Brighton and Sheffield United advance to FA Cup semifinals

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Manchester City prospect Tommy Doyle fired Sheffield United into the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday and then learned he will have to miss out on the biggest game of his young career.

The 21-year-old midfielder is on loan at Sheffield and due to competition rules is ineligible to play against his parent club after Man City and Sheffield were drawn against each other in the next round.

It means Doyle will be a spectator for the match at Wembley, when Premier League champions City will be favorites to advance to the final.

Doyle struck in the first minute of second-half stoppage time as Sheffield beat Blackburn Rovers 3-2 in a thrilling quarterfinal clash between the two second-tier sides.

Blackburn had twice taken the lead through Ben Brereton and Sammie Szmodics.

Sam Gallagher's own-goal and Oliver McBurnie evened the score on each occasion before Doyle's late winner.

But he barely had time to enjoy his celebrations before learning Sheffield had been drawn against City.


Grimsby's FA Cup fairy tale is over after the fourth-tier team was routed 5-0 by Premier League Brighton.

Grimsby was the lowest-ranked team left in the competition and had reached the quarters for the first time since 1939, having knocked out top-flight Southampton in the last round.

But there was no danger of another upset against Brighton, which scored four goals in the second half at Amex Stadium.

Deniz Undav fired the home side in front after just six minutes. Evan Ferguson scored twice after the break, with Solly March and Kaoru Mitoma completing the rout.

Brighton faces the winner of the game later Sunday between Manchester United and Fulham.
