Highlights: Boreham Wood stun Blackpool in FA Cup

Dan Holman's late goal saw National League club Boreham Wood knock League One side Blackpool out of the FA Cup.

Danny Philliskirk latched on to Nathan Delfouneso's through-ball to fire the Seasiders into a second-half lead.

Substitute Blair Turgott converted Kane Smith's cross from eight yards to make it 1-1 soon after.

Fellow substitute Holman struck from close range with just two minutes remaining as the hosts produced one of the biggest shocks of the first round.

The Seasiders, who won the FA Cup in 1953, wasted a number of chances before the break with Callum Cooke having a shot blocked by keeper Grant Smith as well as hitting the post.

David Stephens went close to putting the hosts in front after half an hour with a header.

Boreham Wood manager Luke Garrard:

"When it went 1-1 I looked at the clock and I thought if the referee blew the whistle then, I would be happy.

"But we looked strong, we looked fit, so credit to the players.

"It's about the glory of beating a league side for the first time in our history. It puts a marker down, and looking at what Sutton and Lincoln did last year, why not?"

Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer:

"It's very hard to take because we controlled the game throughout.

"We're disappointed to be out. I thought we applied ourselves properly and played the right way.

"The only disappointing factor was the two goals, and the manner of the two goals."
