A round-up of all the reports and results from this weekend’s FA Cuo fifth round action.


Burnley 0 Lincoln City 1

Lincoln: Raggett (89')

• Sean Raggett scored an 89th-minute winner as non-league Lincoln City stunned Burnley 1-0 to claim one of the biggest upsets in the history of the FA Cup.

Eighty-one places below Burnley in the English football pyramid, fifth-tier Lincoln prevailed when defender Raggett squeezed a header over the line following a late corner at Turf Moor.

Lincoln are the first non-league team to reach the FA Cup’s last eight since Queens Park Rangers in 1914.

They are the eighth side from below England’s four fully professional divisions to have beaten top-flight opposition since the Second World War and only the second to have done so since 1989.

Huddersfield Town 0 Manchester City 0

• Manchester City face an unwanted replay in the last 16 of the FA Cup after labouring to a 0-0 draw at second tier Championship side Huddersfield on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s side struggled to find any tempo against Huddersfield and must now try again at the Etihad Stadium to book their place in the quarter-finals.

A disappointing day all round for City saw unused substitute Raheem Sterling apparently targeted with a plastic bottle thrown by a supporter from the main stand as he warmed up in the second half.

The bottle missed the England winger, leaving Guardiola to worry more about his team’s lacklustre display with star forwards including an off-key Sergio Aguero unable to break down the Terriers’ stubborn defence.

Middlesbrough 3 Oxford United 3

Middlesbrough: Leadbitter (26' pen), Gestede (34'), Stuani (86')

Oxford: Maguire (64'), Martínez (65')

• Cristhian Stuani came off the bench to deny League One Oxford United a place in the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals as Premier League Middlesbrough survived a major scare to triumph 3-2 at the Riverside Stadium.

Aitor Karanka’s men looked to be heading for the Kassam Stadium for a replay after squandering a 2-0 lead inside a single madcap second-half minute, but Uruguay international Stuani came to the rescue with an 86th-minute winner to secure a place in the last eight for the first time since 2009.

Grant Leadbitter’s penalty and January signing Rudy Gestede’s first goal for the club had given Boro a commanding half-time lead, but Chris Maguire’s superb free-kick and Antonio Martinez’s equaliser just seconds later left the result in the melting pot.

Millwall 1 Leicester City 0

Millwall: Cummings (90')

• Ten-man Millwall booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals after Shaun Cummings’s last-minute strike condemned Leicester to another miserable defeat.

The League One side had to play the majority of the second half without Jake Cooper after he was sent off in the 51st minute for a second bookable offence.

But the deficit only inspired Millwall to a famous victory with Cummings finding the net in the 90th minute to heap more pressure on Claudio Ranieri and his beleaguered team.
