The FA Cup - First Round
BarnetBarnet2BlackpoolBlackpool0

Barnet 2-0 Blackpool

Barnet heaped more misery on struggling Blackpool as the League Two side dumped the Seasiders out of the FA Cup with two goals in five first-half minutes.

Tom Champion bundled home Curtis Weston's in-swinging corner for his first goal of the season before Michael Gash headed in the second.

John Akinde almost got a third in the second half as the mid-table League Two side eased past their opponents.

Blackpool fans saw their bid to take over the club ended last month.
