LONDON(AP) Danny Gabbidon rescued Queens Park Rangers with a second-half winner as the Premier League strugglers edged past third-tier MK Dons 1-0 in a third-round replay in the FA Cup on Tuesday.
The Wales defender headed home a corner from Shaun Wright-Phillips in the 73rd minute to earn QPR a fourth-round match at home to west London rival Chelsea.
Bolton also reached the last 32 of world football's oldest knockout competition via a replay after beating fourth-tier Macclesfield 2-0 thanks to first-half goals by Kevin Davies and Bulgaria winger Martin Petrov.
Bolton will play Swansea next in another all-Premier League match on Jan. 28.
Second-tier League Championship teams Leicester and Millwall also progressed from replays on Tuesday.
