League One Southampton dumped Premier League Blackpool out of the FA Cup with second-half goals from Lee Barnard and substitute Guilherme Do Prado.
Blackpool keeper Paul Rachubka saved from Rickie Lambert, who had hit the bar for Saints in the first half, but Barnard was on hand to slot home.
Southampton keeper Bartosz Bialkowski superbly saved from Matt Phillips and Aaron Martin then cleared off the line.
But seven minutes after coming on Do Prado's sublime finish sealed the win.
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway made nine changes from the side beaten by Birmingham in midweek, one more than his Southampton counterpart Nigel Adkins.
