'Clumsy' Gary Lineker's FA Cup draw antics

Reflecting on the draw, Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, who drew the balls on The One Show along with the programme's co-presenter Alex Jones, said: "You would expect Manchester United ought to go through from their replay and then a game against a League One side would be a classic FA Cup tie."

"Bradford might have wanted something a little bit more exciting than Sunderland but they'll think they have half a chance and could go on to bigger and better things."

Bradford defender Andrew Davies told BBC Radio 5 live: "It's a fantastic draw. It's good to have a home game and the fans will be right behind us. It's exciting. I can't see why we can't get another win."
