Manchester City discover their surprise FA Cup fifth round opponents”

Joe Day did not have time to drink in the appreciation of the crowd at Rodney Parade on Tuesday night as his Newport County side caused another upset by knocking Middlesbrough out of the FA Cup.

Middlesbrough fielded a strong team in the FA Cup replay, with four of their back five that started against West Brom last weekend playing from the off at Newport.

"It's nothing more than we deserved tonight, we were absolutely outstanding", Newport manager Mike Flynn said.

The Exiles generally outplayed Tony Pulis' sluggish outfit and eventually heaved their way to a 2-0 victory thanks to a couple of second-half goals from Robbie Willmott and Padraig Amond, the latter being an absolute beauty...

"They can match Championship players. We can play like that, but not every week in League Two".

"I didn't know the girls had been born when I ran off the pitch at the end".

I said, 'Of course you can.

"Nothing was really happening at midday on Tuesday, but as I was driving to the game Lizzie called me to say her waters had gone".

Wolves had to come from behind at Shrewsbury Town to force a replay and they were again pushed hard by the League One strugglers in the Molineux return.

City's FA Cup fifth round tie with Newport will be played on Saturday 16 February with a kick-off time of 5.30pm.

Matt Doherty's second-minute goal opened the scoring but goals from James Bolton and Josh Laurent put Shrewsbury in front in the tie once more.
