@_dgallagher99: One game to go always rated this competition

@scoobysafc: Yesss lads cheesey chippps on Wembley wayyyy I’m booking my hotel tonight I have faith ha way lads

@SafcFans: Decent enough performance without too much pressure. Special mention to @LukeONien seamlessly switching from RB to CM. Ozturk was solid. Great to see @Ethan_robson8 back too with some nice forward balls #SAFC

@_GuyIncognito__: Ethan Robson could be very useful second half of this season. Looked sharper than Cattermole...

@SAFCsource: Just about the perfect game that, won comfortably while in first gear. Everyone did well and much needed goals for Watmore and Gooch.

@LdoubleE_87: Decent little win. One step closer to Wembley. Sarcastic cheering of McGeouch when passing forward absolutely embarrassing. Onto the next one. #SAFC

@jon_ralph73: Very happy with #safc’s professional performance tonight. It was nice not to be hanging on by one goal for a change.

@SAFC_Spotlight: Lovely! Needed that after the sucker punch at Scunthorpe. Onto the next round and then hopefully Wembley

@CuppaBeans09: Take anything other than away at Portsmouth on a Tuesday night

@BIGANDYSAFC: 90 minutes away from our capital being invaded by the craziest football fans on the planet
