Wolves, Crystal Palace and Swansea City booked their places in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup with victories on Sunday.

Wolves won 1-0 at Championship side Bristol City to reach the last eight for the first time in 16 years.

It was thanks to Ivan Cavaleiro’s first-half strike, which he drilled beyond keeper Frank Fielding after neat build-up play from Conor Coady and Matt Doherty. They were almost two up soon afterwards when Doherty hit a post, but City improved after the break, Josh Brownhill’s deflected cross forcing John Ruddy into action.

Ruddy made further blocks from Matt Taylor and opposite number Fielding, up for a stoppage-time corner. Crystal Palace booked their place in the last-eight with a 2-0 victory at Doncaster Rovers.

The Premier League side took the lead after only eight minutes as Luka Milivojevic sent Jeffrey Schlupp away down the left, and his angled effort found the bottom corner via a deflection. Max Meyer doubled the lead in first-half stoppage time when he nodded home Andros Townsend’s intelligent delivery.

Rovers rallied after the break but couldn’t find a way back into the tie.

Swansea City came from behind to win 4-1 at home to fellow Championship side Brentford.

The Bees led in the 28th minute when Ollie Watkins scored on a quick counter-attack, but two goals shortly after half-time turned the game on its head.

The equaliser came in the 49th minute when Bersant Celina’s free kick came back off the post and in off goalkeeper Luke Daniels, and shortly afterwards Dan James put the Swans in front with another breakaway goal.

It went from bad to worse for the visitors when Ezri Konsa was shown a straight red for bringing down Celina just after the hour. (ESPN)
