Sliema Wanderers are safely through to the FA Trophy last 16 phase as they breezed past Vittoriosa Stars 3-0 at the Centenary Stadium.

The Wanderers approached the match against the struggling Challenge League side seriously as coach Andrea Pisanu fielded a strong side on Thursday.

The Blues took control of the match right from the outset and managed to take the lead on 33 minutes courtesy of a Juan Pablo Morales Rengito goal.

Sliema added a second goal just before half-time through Jake Engerer.

Buoyed with a two-goal lead, the Wanderers administered their advantage after the break and went on to seal qualification when they added a third goal in stoppage time through young striker Omar Elouni.

The Wanderers now advance to the Last 16 when they face the winners of the match between Pembroke Athleta and Marsaxlokk.
