Phil Neville believes that Everton can book a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, despite drawing with Oldham Athletic to force a fifth-round replay.

Phil Neville believes that Everton are more than capable of defeating Oldham Athletic in their FA Cup replay to book a place in the quarter-finals.

The Merseyside outfit stumbled to a 2-2 draw at Boundary Park due to a stoppage-time strike from Matt Smith.

"Oldham played really well, they gave as good as they got," the Liverpool Echo quotes Neville as saying. "Maybe we should have had it wrapped up a little bit sooner. We have an experienced side that should be able to handle their late pressure.

"The disappointment is that we didn't give the massive support we had the victory they wanted. But this is what the FA Cup does, Arsenal lost at home to Blackburn, and we are still in the hat."

The replay, which is scheduled for February 27 at Goodison Park, will determine who will face Wigan Athletic in the quarter-finals.
