London: Birmingham knocked local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers out of the FA Cup on Wednesday after midfielder Wade Elliott scored a second-half winner for a 1-0 victory against the Premier League team in a third-round replay.

Elliott initially hit the post from a corner but poked in the rebound in the 74th after a follow-up effort had been blocked as well.

The victory means the League Championship club will visit Sheffield United in the next round, and gave Birmingham a measure of revenge after being relegated from the Premier League last season when a loss in the final round allowed Wolves to stay up.

In Wednesday's other match, Brighton advanced by beating Wrexham 5-4 in a penalty shootout after the game ended 1-1 following extra time.
