We get to travel to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light for the fourth round replay
So after the “proper” FA Cup game at the Cottage ended in a draw we get a Wednesday evening 17:45 kick off to see who will face Leeds in the next round.

It was an uncharacteristic mistake by Issa Diop that allowed Sunderland to take a sixth minute lead, however Tom Cairney came to the rescue with a wonderful bit of skill weaving his way past a couple of defenders before scoring past the very impressive Patterson who had an outstanding game.
