After beating Liverpool in dramatic fashion, Barnsley wasn’t given much of a chance of pulling off a second miracle win in the FA Cup.

Well, another miracle has taken place for the tiny Coca Cola Championship club.

Nigerian forward Kayode Odejayi headed home the winner to give Barnsley a 1-0 win against Chelsea in the FA Cup quarterfinals.

The win clinches a place in the FA Cup semifinals at Wembley Stadium.

Chelsea was seen as a lock to win this match, especially after its Champions League thrashing of Olympiakos, but several key players were rested and Barnsley did not budge against a flat Chelsea squad.
