Villa put league troubles aside to advance in FA Cup

Aston Villa forgot their Premier League woes and moved into the fourth round of the FA

Cup with an unconvincing 2-0 win over fourth tier Wycombe Wanderers in their third

round replay at Villa Park.

A 75th minute header from Ciaran Clark and a last minute strike from Idrissa Gueye

settled the tie as Villa, beaten finalists last season but currently bottom of the Premier

League, won for only the fourth time this season to set up a home meeting with

Manchester City. West Bromwich Albion, the only other Premier League team in action,

were also made to battle for victory, seeing off Championship (second tier) strugglers

Bristol City 1-0 at Ashton Gate.
