  1. Edwards watch

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    The final word of the night from BBC Cambridge reporter Sam Edwards. He travelled up to Manchester in a supporters' coach, only for it to break down around 18:00 GMT on the M6 motorway. He arrived at Old Trafford with only half an hour left, after a Warrington coach company heeded his panicked calls for help.

    Now, with the game over and done with, Sam seem philosophical:

    @edwardssport: Thanks for the messages. I'm lucky enough to be working and in a car on way home. Feel for fans who booked days off and on coach back.

    So do we, Sam. So do we.

  2. Manager reaction

    Fulham 1-3 Sunderland

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Gus Poyet

    Sunderland manager Gus Poyet on 5 live Sport: "We played well the the first half, really aggressive and high. We were in control and I was happy with our performance, and I'm happy with the final result. Today my players enjoyed playing their football. That was one of the first games this season that I've been really happy, watching my team play."

  3. Manager reaction

    Sheff Utd 1-3 Preston

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Preston

    Preston manager Simon Grayson on 5 live Sport: "It's been a disappointing few weeks for us but tonight is an excellent result. We've been lacking attacking options and confidence recently, but we're getting those players back now. But there was a massive incentive tonight to play Manchester United, and it brought out the best in us.

    "We had to be focused tonight, because we know how good Sheffield United are. They have done fantastically well in the cups. We had to be at it, and from the first whistle we were really good and dominated, and they scored against the run of play. We kept our belief going.

    "It's a massive result, and there was a massive carrot for us. Forget Manchester United, we just wanted to get back to winning ways. This result can hopefully now galvanise our league form.

    "I'm sure it will be very difficult to get tickets for Deepdale, but I'll limit those I give out to people who came to places like Crawley and so on in January."

  4. Post update

    Apologies if I earlier said that Bradford will play Fulham in the next round - it is of course Sunderland! What a total idiot.

  5. Manager reaction

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    Louis Van Gaal

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal talking to the BBC: "Cambridge have played very well, a very organised team and with the mentality that was superb. The fans were fantastic from Cambridge United. We have done what we had to.

    "Every club in the FA Cup wants to win, we also. We have to beat Preston and that will not be easy, they won away against a cup fighter like Sheffield United, so it will be difficult for us to win in Preston North End.

    "For the club, the fans and the coach and my staff, we want to win a title this year. The biggest chance is the FA Cup, but we still have to win four games to do that.

    "Tonight, I don't think we played a very good match. But it is always difficult against a defensive team. We could have done better but I am pleased with the result."

  6. Post update

    Who are favourites to win the FA Cup now? Manchester United are the highest-ranked side still in the competition.

  7. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    There is something magic about Louis van Gaal's pronunciation of 'Preston North End'. Wonderful.

    Preston North End v Manchester Utd

    The replay between Liverpool and Bolton is live on BBC One tomorrow night.

  9. Manager reaction

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    Cambridge manager Richard Money: "I was really pleased with them second half. To come in 2-0 down and play with purpose and control is not easy but we did that.

    "We gave the ball away too cheaply in the first half. But I couldn't fault them for their organisation and work ethic.

    "I said at half time what's the worst that can happen. You get battered? But so what. So go and show what you can do.

    "I'm not sure how many clear chances they really created. They caught us on the counter-attack but we wanted to get bodies up the pitch.

    "I just wanted to get a goal for the fans. And I thought we had at the end."

  10. Player reaction

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini: "It's important to win a trophy so we will try, we work hard for that. We are winning at the moment but we continue to work hard. The manager is the boss and decides where I must play.

    "We win 3-0 which is good for confidence. We played well."

    Jean Pelletier: Man Utd look good for Wembley this year.

    Sam Burnett: Bit of a cakewalk in the end really, for Manchester United. The gulf in class was evident. Fair play to Cambridge though, they worked their backsides off.

    Luke: Cambridge should be proud. Louis van Gaal was forced to select the strongest United side to better them. 3-0 over two legs? Not many can top that.

  15. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "Manchester United's performance can be analysed in numerous ways.

    "On the negative side, a bizarre formation, strange early reliance on long balls up to Marouane Fellaini and far too many misplaced passes.

    "On the positive, reliance on Fellaini paid off, and 24 hours after the departure of Darren Fletcher after almost 20 years at the club, eye-catching performances from two more home-grown youngsters, Paddy McNair and goalscorer James Wilson.

    "Ultimately though, this competition is about being in it - and they are, with a trip to League One Preston standing between them and a quarter-final berth.

    "As for Cambridge, they will be talking about the one that hit the post from Tom Elliott for years."

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    A few Cambridge players have shirts from the Manchester United lads, but none of the amber shirts have been swapped. I forgot that they have been outlawed from doing so. Richard Money calls his players into a congratulatory huddle in front of the 6,000 away fans.

    "Let's take this memory into the league and kick on..." he'll be saying. Or similar.

    There it is, it's all over. Cambridge boss Richard Money salutes the fans as his players battle it out for the shirt swap.

  20. CLOSE!

    Great move from Cambridge, their best since the opening minute, as Tom Elliott finds Cameron McGeehan inside the box but he shoots wide.

  21. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "This is what it's all about, being at Old Trafford as a Football League fan. This will live long in the memory for these Cambridge fans, particularly that incredible achievement of the first tie, drawing with Manchester United."

  22. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    The 6,000 away fans are still bouncing and making plenty of noise. A terrific effort, having done battle with the M6 on the way too. They've not been embarrassed and will have that tremendous showing in the first leg to look back on for many a year.

    And £1m+ in the bank too.

  23. Moyes the man

    Cambridge make a late change as Ian Miller, who was injured in the play-off final at Wembley, gets another taste of the big time.

  26. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "That's two in four games now for James Wilson.

    "Interesting he has been given a chance off the bench despite the presence there of Radamel Falcao.

    "The 19-year-old does not look out of place in this company that's for sure. And strikers who drop deep, as Wilson likes to do, give defences a headache."

  27. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    Ashley Young is back with an overhit cross from the left as we enter the final 10 minutes. It's a very subdued atmosphere.

  28. Post update

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "They have done as well as you could have expected, for Cambridge. They had a glorious chance early on. I expected Manchester United to do more when they had the ball, but ultimately I suppose this is a satisfactory result for both sides, really."

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "That's nice for James Wilson, and a good finish after a nice little turn. Low and hard into the bottom corner, not giving the keeper any chance. That will do his confidence no harm whatsoever."

  32. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd

    That tie will be a big deal in Preston, and after a run of no wins in seven it could kickstart North End's faltering promotion push too. Simon Grayson has an FA Cup win over Manchester United under his belt.

    Wayne Rooney is close to a fourth but mishits his shot.

    Sheff Utd 1-3 Preston

    A nice moment for Preston striker Joe Garner, who ends an injury absence of more than two months by coming on for the last three minutes. He starts with an ambitious shot from 40 yards. You can do that when you're 3-1 up.

    Fulham 1-3 Sunderland

    Southend United manager Phil Brown

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It was a great penalty, to be fair. It looked like a soft award to me though. The referee immediately pointed to the spot, but the Fulham fans are not happy with that whatsoever."

  37. Post update

    Man Utd 3-0 Cambridge Utd - James Wilson (73 mins)

    James Wilson has been lively since coming on up front for Manchester United, and he gets his goal, taking a pass from Ander Herrera and firing in left-footed from the edge of the box.

    James Wilson celebrates
  38. GOAL

    Fulham 1-3 Sunderland - Jordi Gomez (Pen 90 mins)

    Jordi Gomez - who won the FA Cup with Wigan - slams powerfully home from the spot in front of the 4,000 travelling fans. Sunderland are through.

    Jordi Gomez celebrates
  39. PENALTY to SUNDERLAND

  42. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "Manchester United were simply unable to unlock Cambridge in the first fixture, but here the game opened up after United scored their first goal, which completely changed the complexion of the tie."

  43. GREAT SAVE!

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Nice from Juan Mata, a smart backheel to find Angel Di Maria 25 yards out, and his drive is powerful and well turned over by Chris Dunn. Excellent save.

  44. SUBSTITUTION

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Robin van Persie is replaced by James Wilson and the Dutchman makes his way down to the tunnel, applauding the crowd on his way. An injury concern?

  45. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-3 Preston

    Preston looking comfortable as they head towards victory at Bramall Lane. Paul Gallagher has had a couple of sights of goal as he chases a hat-trick, whizzing one shot over the bar and rolling another wide. Sheffield United may have lost just two of their last 17 FA Cup ties, but they've only three minutes to save this one.

  50. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Angel Di Maria whips in a bullet of a shot, gem of a hit, but it is brilliantly and bravely blocked by Josh Coulson. For those Cambridge fans making their way to the ground with our reporter, it may be a bit of a damp squib when they do arrive. Not much tempo or drive to the game now.

  51. YELLOW CARD

    Fulham 1-2 Sunderland

    The referee has a lengthy stoppage, during which he gets both linesman onto the pitch, and in the end he decides on two yellow cards. One for each side. What a letdown after all that.

  52. Post update

  55. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Wayne Rooney with a cracking effort, dipping strike that forces Chris Dunn into an awkward save, can only cough it up into the mixer and Robin van Persie should really bury it. He slams it over the top though.

    Into the last 20 minutes at Craven Cottage. Sunderland building up a head of steam but they've not really tested Marcus Bettinelli since his howler in the Fulham goal.

  63. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    That's another stinker of a cross from Marcos Rojo. Luke Shaw's place is safe at left-back if he keeps that up.

  64. GOAL

    Sheff Utd 1-2 Preston - Paul Huntington (69 mins)

    A fast turnaround at Bramall Lane, with Preston coming from a goal down to lead in next to no time. It's centre-back Paul Huntington with his second goal in two games as he heads in Scott Laird's corner. As it stands, we are heading for a fifth-round tie between Preston and Manchester United.

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It was a harmless cross into the box from the left, it took a deflection but it was a dolly of a catch and Marcus Bettinelli has spilled it into his own net. It's a horrendous mistake by the goalkeeper to gift Sunderland a goal. It's a poor, poor mistake."

  68. CLOSE!

    Fulham 1-1 Sunderland

    Sunderland very near indeed to going ahead for the first time as Italian midfielder Emmanuele Giaccherini curls wide from the edge of the box.

  69. Post update

    The goals are coming thick and fast now, and are we heading for extra-time?

  70. GOAL

    Sheff Utd 1-1 Preston - Paul Gallagher (63 mins)

    Paul Gallagher does it again. The on-loan Leicester forward scored a stunning free-kick in the first tie at Deepdale 10 days ago, and he's done it again with a pinpoint set-piece into the top corner. Mark Howard has no chance.

    Preston could have been level just before that, with Howard making an excellent double save to stop first Scott Laird and then Chris Humphrey. The game at Bramall Lane is most definitely on.

    Paul Gallagher scores for Preston
  71. GOAL

    Fulham 1-1 Sunderland - Marcus Bettinelli (OG 61 mins)

    Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. Slapstick goalkeeping from Fulham's Marcus Bettinelli gifts Sunderland an equaliser as he juggles Patrick van Aanholt's speculative cross under little pressure and drops it over the line.

    Fulham's Marcus Bettinelli scores and own-goal
  72. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "Very different emotions in the respective dressing rooms at half-time.

    "In the visitors' Tom Elliott will be going over and over in his mind the first-minute chance that could have given the game a sensational start and a memory of a lifetime.

    "In the hosts' Paddy McNair should be feeling very pleased with himself.

    "The Northern Irishman played a key role in the opening goal by switching play with an astute pass. And, after some early prompting from Wayne Rooney, has become a very useful attacking outlet from his right-back station."

  73. Post update

    Sheff Utd 1-0 Preston

    The question for Preston here is: Do they risk bringing on Joe Garner? Their 12-goal top scorer has been out of action for more than two months with a tendon injury, but is on the bench tonight, and may yet be needed. Not much in the way of clear chances so far in the second half, although home keeper Mark Howard has just stopped Tom Clarke's header from a Paul Gallagher cross.

  78. CLOSE!

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    That goal probably ends this tie as a contest, Bradford came from 2-0 down to beat Chelsea, but that was miraculous. Cambridge's gameplan of containment certainly needs a major tweak.

  93. Post update

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "I think that's the first time from a Cambridge perspective, from the two games, that you can say they switched off. Fellaini was completely left alone. He was unmarked, able to take it down, and he had a strike. It didn't work, and yet United were still able to get the ball back in the box and score."

  94. GOAL

    Man Utd 2-0 Cambridge Utd - Marcos Rojo (32 mins)

    Marcos Rojo has his first goal for Manchester United, and it's more direct play which does the trick. Marouane Fellaini has a shot blocked from a corner, Robin van Persie returns it with a deft chip and Rojo loses his marker to head home powerfully.

    Fulham 1-0 Sunderland

    Southend United manager Phil Brown

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It's a good FA Cup tie. Fulham were on the back foot for the first 25 minutes but they took the lead against the run of play and then have come back into the game.

    "Their front three of Ross McCormack, Cauley Woodrow and Hugo Rodallega can cause Sunderland problems. Sunderland will have to be weary of being hit on the counter-attack as they push for an equaliser."

  96. Post update

    Man Utd 1-0 Cambridge Utd

    Cambridge defender Richard Tait loses his boot in the build-up but keeps on his man, almost cutting out a cross which runs into the path of Paddy McNair. The defender laces in a drive, really travelling, but it is well blocked by Josh Coulson.

  98. HALF-TIME

    Sheff Utd 1-0 Preston

    Jamie Murphy's goal seven minutes before the break lifted Sheffield United after a sluggish start, and Jose Baxter almost gets a second just before the break, but Thorsten Stuckmann gets down to his left to save well. On the balance of first-half play, Preston can count themselves a little unlucky.

    Man Utd 1-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "Fellaini should be down the middle getting on the end of balls like that. He came in at the far post and provided aerial dominance, attacking the ball. So why on earth has he been playing wide left? I had no issues with the way Man Utd played down at Cambridge, but even now they now lead I still don't know what Van Gaal is trying to achieve with this system."

  104. GOAL

    Man Utd 1-0 Cambridge Utd - Juan Mata (25 mins)

    That's why Manchester United have been hitting Marouane Fellaini - because it works. He gets up high to head down a cross from Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata is in the six-yard box, sticks out a foot and pokes it in off the bar.

  105. 'Making it up as they go along'

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "There have been moments in the opening 25 minutes - Rojo's instant control on the touchline - when the class in United's ranks show.

    "But there are many others when it appears they are making it up as they go along.

    "Plenty of misplaced passes, too many players in one area, not enough in others, Wayne Rooney having to encourage Paddy McNair to make an overlapping run to give him some room. It's all oddly disjointed."

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Angel Di Maria is fine now, putting in a cross from the left which is headed away. United's formation does have one flaw, the spare man on every attack is Paddy McNair on the right. He looks very uncomfortable out on the wing.

  108. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Problems here. Angel Di Maria slips as he clips a ball forwards and looks to go over on his ankle. That made my eyes water! But he appears to be OK after a bit of treatment.

  109. GOAL

    Sheff Utd 1-0 Preston - Jamie Murphy (38 mins)

    Jamie Murphy scored twice as Sheffield United beat Swindon on Saturday, and he's on target again as Nigel Clough's side take the lead against the run of play. Murphy, who agreed a new contract over the weekend, takes on Michael Doyle's pass and strikes a low shot under keeper Thorsten Stuckmann, who probably should have saved it.

  110. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    For all of the consternation behind Wayne Rooney playing on the right, he's still been Manchester United's busiest player. He cuts in on to his left foot and drills in a low shot which is well held by Chris Dunn.

  111. CLOSE!

    Fulham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland were excellent in the opening 15 minutes but they haven't reacted well to going behind. Jermain Defoe has been kept quiet in the last 10 minutes or so.

    And Ross McCormack then whistles a shot wide from 20 yards for Fulham.

  112. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Has Angel Di Maria been a disappointment for Manchester United? Not really hit the heights of a £60m man. He scuffs a shot across the box before Marouane Fellaini wins another header but nobody can turn it in.

    Manchester United are basically going long.

  113. Post update

    Sheff Utd 0-0 Preston

    Sheffield United, the cup experts of League One, are having a tough time of it here, despite Marc McNulty seeing his shot deflected just wide. At the other end, Preston centre-back Tom Clarke's header from a Kevin Davies flick is well saved by keeper Mark Howard.

  114. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Wayne Rooney wins a header at the back post, from this berth on the right which has really got Steve Claridge's goat. Marouane Fellaini is basically playing up front. He'd make a good targetman in League Two.

  115. Post update

    Fulham 1-0 Sunderland

    Southend United manager Phil Brown

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It wasn't a great corner, but it was put into a dangerous area and there must have been 14 or 15 bodies in the penalty area, but Fulham reacted quickest and they are one up against the run of play."

  116. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "Those empty seats filled up as the teams came out, but plenty were only just taking them as Tom Elliott hit the post.

    "A nervy start from United and their defence still looks suspect despite recent improvements."

  117. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "What an odd, odd system from Van Gaal. What an odd way to put out a team with the players you've got. Fellaini on the left wing and Rooney on the right? Really? Does that fit?

    "Why is he even out there, Rooney? Sir Alex used to play him there, but only when they were up against the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. If I was a player playing for United I would be absolutely deflated. If I was Rooney playing out wide against Cambridge, I would wonder what on earth the manager was doing with me. What am I doing out here? It's just crazy."

  118. GOAL

    Fulham 1-0 Sunderland - Hugo Rodallega (28 mins)

    Entirely against the run of play, Fulham lead! Hugo Rodallega puts them ahead after Sunderland can't clear a corner, Cauley Woodrow sees his shot smothered on the line but Rodallega is there to batter in off the underside of the crossbar. That's 10 for the season for Rodallega.

    BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "The front three of Fulham are being starved of service at the moment. Fulham are finding it difficult to get a foothold in the game and they haven't done anything in terms of a threat going forward. You wouldn't expect that with their strikeforce."

  121. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Sheff Utd 0-0 Preston

    Preston have come closest to scoring at Bramall Lane so far, with Kevin Davies - an FA Cup hero in 1997 with surprise semi-finalists Chesterfield - hitting the inside of the post with a chip after running on to a poor back header.

  122. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    It looks like a back four for Manchester United, with Paddy McNair and Marcos Rojo at full-back and Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans through the middle.

    Rojo puts in two good crosses from the left but Cambridge stand tall and clear their lines.

  123. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    What a start that would have been for Cambridge. Since then Manchester United have kept the ball at will, as you'd expect.

  124. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "He was clean through, wasn't he? A stumble and stutter from the Man Utd midfield played him in, but Tom Elliott never set himself. He tried to bend it round De Gea's left-hand side but it glanced the outside of the post. What a start, and what a chance for Cambridge. They probably won't get a better chance than that all night..."

  125. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Man Utd 0-0 Cambridge Utd

    What a chance! Cambridge striker Tom Elliott latches on to Daley Blind's bad touch and he's clean through on goal, he slips as he strikes it - and curls against the post! Amazing.

    Sunderland then have the ball in the net but Steven Fletcher is offside. All go for the Black Cats.

    "We know we played well in the first game. People may think we played above ourselves but I thought we were very good on the night, and that should give my players confidence for tonight. But this is a different kettle of fish, a different ball game. So we need to be even better, if possible.

    "Our fans have been great with us, and numbers have risen. The atmospheres have got bigger and better, and the reward for them for that is a day out here at Old Trafford. But we just need to make sure it's not just a day out."

    We hear so often that it is a dream to be a professional footballer, so it is very interesting when a player takes the rare decision to jack it in. Today Forest Green Rovers defender Eddie Oshodi quit professional football at the age of 23.

    He had his contract cancelled by mutual consent on Monday to allow him to seek a career away from the game.

    "I don't want to be thought of as 'Eddie Oshodi - all he's known for is playing football'.

    There could yet be a late change to the FA Cup last 16, as West Ham could face expulsion if Fifa finds the club breached rules over the selection of striker Diafra Sakho.

    Sakho, 25, withdrew from Senegal's Africa Cup of Nations squad with a back injury but scored 18 days later in West Ham's 1-0 FA Cup win at Bristol City.

    Fifa rules state a player cannot appear for his club if he is meant to be on international duty.

    World football's governing body has begun an inquiry but the Hammers "vigorously" deny any wrongdoing.

    Former Cambridge forward Steve Claridge on 5 live Sport

    "Cambridge can play here tonight in the same manner as the first leg. I expect them to line up with one up front, one just behind and two solid banks of four. They won't look to lave any space in behind, no gaps between the lines, and they will want to play in exactly the same manner as the previous game."

  171. Keeping Valdes waiting

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "Louis van Gaal has caused a surprise by naming David De Gea in goal.

    "Victor Valdes is still to play a first-team game after signing an 18-month contract and tonight looked like the perfect opportunity for his debut.

    "The former Barcelona man will be on the bench again though as United look to book a fifth-round trip to Sheffield United or Preston."

    Sheff Utd v Preston (19:45 GMT)

    Tom in Sheffield: Based on the teams they've played in the last two seasons in both cups, if Sheffield United were in the Premier League right now they would only be three points behind Leicester with a goal difference of +3 and having played an incredible 15 games fewer! Amazing.

    I've no idea how you worked that out Tom but I'm happy to go with it...

    Sheff Utd v Preston (19:45 GMT)

    Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough, who made 10 changes for Saturday's 2-0 League One home win over Swindon, reverts to the starting line-up that ran Tottenham close in the League Cup three days earlier - only centre-back Chris Basham remains from the weekend.

    Preston's 12-goal top scorer Joe Garner returns to the bench after more than two months out with a tendon injury. Boss Simon Grayson makes six changes, bringing in goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann and midfielder Neil Kilkenny for the cup-tied Sam Johnstone and Daniel Johnson - while recalling 37-year-old Kevin Davies, a boyhood Sheffield United fan, in attack.

    Sheff Utd XI: Howard; Flynn, Basham, McEveley, Harris; Doyle; Campbell-Ryce, Scougall, Baxter, Murphy; McNulty.

    Preston XI: Stuckmann; Laird, Clarke, Huntington, Woods, Wiseman; Humphrey, Brownhill, Kilkenny; Gallagher, K. Davies.

  174. Top of the shocks

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Jon Stead

    Cambridge winning at Old Trafford. It's not going to happen. Not a chance. Never.

    Right? Well I would have offered you enormous odds of Bradford winning at Chelsea - particularly from 2-0 down - so you never can tell.

    Would a Cambridge win this evening be an even bigger shock?

  175. Sam's sorry state of affairs

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Sam Edwards, BBC Cambridge sport and news reporter, is not having a good time of it as he tries to get up to Old Trafford in time for kick-off:

    @edwardssport: Our coach now has mechanical problems. Stranded on a layby on the M6.

    Our sympathies, Sam. But really, you should have left earlier.

  176. Post update

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "The deadline-day departure of Darren Fletcher to West Brom means that there is no-one left in the Manchester United squad who has an FA Cup winners' medal from their time at Old Trafford.

    "Three United players do have one though. Robin van Persie was part of the Arsenal side that defeated United on penalties at the Millennium Stadium in 2005. Juan Mata started Chelsea's victory over Liverpool at Wembley in 2012.

    "The third, less obvious, name is Angelo Henrqiuez. The Chilean is presently on loan at Dinamo Zagreb. He was also on loan at Wigan, when he was named on the bench for the Latics' shock 1-0 win over Manchester City in 2013."

  177. Tonight on five live

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Tonight's 5 live sport began at 19:00 GMT as Mark Chapman and guests digest the fall-out from transfer deadline day, Harry Redknapp's resignation and more.

    Then, from 19:45 GMT we have full commentary from Old Trafford where John Murray is joined behind the mic by former Cambridge striker Steve Claridge.

  178. Gonna need a smaller boat...

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Reports on social media suggest some Cambridge United fans are delayed on the M6 and are far from certain to make it to Old Trafford in time for kick-off.

    In fact, the Cambridge team bus got caught in traffic earlier this afternoon, before it even managed to get out the the city. The reason? This:

    Fulham v Sunderland (19:45 GMT)

    Fulham

    Bad news for Fulham as club captain Scott Parker is not fit enough to play and is not in his side's 18-man squad. Jazz Richards, on loan from Swansea, is cup-tied so Jack Grimmer comes in, with Seko Fofana and Alex Kacaniklic also starting. Lasse Vigen Christensen is among the substitutes.

    Fulham XI: Bettinelli, Grimmer, Hutchinson, Bodurov, Stafylidis, Fofana, Tunnicliffe, Kacaniklic, McCormack, Rodallega, Woodrow.

  180. Chadwick returns

    Man Utd v Cambridge Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Luke Chadwick

    Luke Chadwick starts a game at Old Trafford tonight for the first time since December 2001. That was a 1-0 defeat by West Ham, and he was replaced on the hour mark by a certain Mr D. Beckham.

    I can confirm that Beckham is not on the bench for Cambridge tonight.

  181. Setting off early

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Cambridge Utd at Old Trafford

    Dave Matthews Jones, chairman of Cambridge Fans United, on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "I had to scrape the snow off the car this morning. I went into work early, then nipped out, got on the coach and am making my way up. The coaches left Cambridge at 1pm - plenty of time to get up there early.

    "In the last 12 months we have already been to Wembley twice. We won both times and we have a fantastic manager, Richard Money, who prepares the team well.

    "Louis van Gaal seems to be worried about us, and we're at Old Trafford to cause an upset. If they don't show up, or if we get a goal early and they panic, then anything's possible. There have been Cup upsets in the past and it's only 11 v 11. The Amber Nation is in Manchester tonight. We won't be fazed inside Old Trafford."

    Fulham v Sunderland (19:45 GMT)

    Sunderland

    Vito Mannone plays in goal for Sunderland with Costel Pantilimon dropping down to the bench, while Ricardo Alvarez and Emanuele Giaccherini also start. Adam Johnson is out after needing surgery on a thumb injury and Sebastian Larsson also misses out.

    Sunderland XI: Mannone, Reveillere, van Aanholt, Vergini, O'Shea, Bridcutt, Gomez, Alvarez, Giaccherini, Wickham, Defoe.

  183. Traffic trouble?

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's Sam Edwards reports that around 1,000 or so Cambridge fans will not be at Old Trafford for kick-off or any of the build-up after traffic trouble on the M6. He is on one of the fans' coaches and it is currently 47 minutes away, but that is without factoring in parking and walking to the ground. Kick-off in 49 minutes.

  184. "No change from £250"

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone at Old Trafford: "More than 6,000 Cambridge fans will be at Old Trafford tonight - and they have no intention of being put off by ticket prices in excess of £40.

    "It was £46 for each adult and £18 for the child's," said Tim Heffer, a Cambridge fan of 31 years, who was at the game with partner Kerry, family friend Michael and 11-year-old son Luke.

    "By the time we have paid for petrol there won't be much change from £250.

    "We wouldn't miss tonight though. In all my time following the club there has never been an occasion like this."

    He is not expecting the visitors to claim a fifth round tie with Sheffield United or Preston though.

    "If we only lose 3-0 we will have done well," he said.

  185. Team News

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    The big news for Cambridge United is the fact that ex-Manchester United man Luke Chadwick starts. He is one of two changes from the side beaten at Luton at the weekend.

    Cambridge XI: Dunn: Tait, Coulson, Nelson, Taylor: Chadwick, Champion, McGeehan, Donaldson; Elliott, Simpson.

    Sheff Utd v Preston (19:45 GMT)

    Nigel Clough

    It's an all League One affair at Bramall Lane, in fact it's fourth v sixth.

    North End have hit a sticky patch of form though, with no wins in their last seven games in all competitions, while the Blades were mighty close to taking Spurs to extra time in last week's League Cup semi-final.

    Advantage Nigel Clough?

    With a potential home tie against Manchester United on the cards, there's a lot at stake...

  187. Tram talk

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    This evening Manchester's tram system, the Metrolink, has been flooded by fans of both sides, all heading to a floodlit Old Trafford.

    The chanting and banter was in full fly, including this little gem:

    Supporters in red: "You need a new stand, you need a new stand! You're at Old Trafford, cos you need a new stand!"

    Supporters in amber: "Dah dah dah! Thank you for the toilets! Dah dah dah! Thank you for the toilets."

    Highbrow stuff. Not sure the usual commuters were loving it, mind...

  188. Post update

    Man Utd v Cambridge United (19:45 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "One player not involved at Old Trafford tonight is Jesse Lingard, who joined Derby on loan for the remainder of the season yesterday. Manchester United are committed to Lingard though. The midfielder has agreed a new two-and-a-half year contract at United and Louis van Gaal paid a warm tribute to the 22-year-old in the match programme ahead of tonight's FA Cup replay with Cambridge.

    "Jesse was desperately unfortunate to sustain a knee ligament injury on his debut for the club on the opening day of the season," said the Dutchman. I have been impressed by Jesse's determination during his rehabilitation."

    Dave Doggett, Cambridge United chairman, on 5 live Breakfast: "Old Trafford is not a stadium we play at regularly, in fact I think the last time were were there was 23 years ago.

    "We know the players will do us proud as they always do - they will go out and enjoy the occasion. We'll have over 6,500 supporters there and hopefully the atmosphere they'll create will inspire our players.

    "This is the great thing about football - until the final whistle we'll still be in the tie. It's a great occasion and something we're really looking forward to. It would be great if we manage to hold out, and if it goes to penalties I'll be left with a few fewer fingernails!"

    Manchester United make five changes from the side which beat Leicester at the weekend - but it remains a formidable looking line-up. Juan Mata is back in.

    What a waste of money!

    Cambridge United chairman Dave Doggett said that he intended to spend a large chunk of the £1m generated by tonight's game on improving the toilets at the Abbey Stadium.

    Cambridge

    The FA Cup remains a game-changing competition for some clubs. There are certainly more exciting things to spend money on, but sometimes we all have to swallow a dull, but necessary purchase.

    So what is the most depressing purchase you have ever had to make? A large, wallet-draining expense on something you knew full well you would gain no joy from at all.

    I'm talking new carpets. Having a new boiler fitted - four grand I was quoted last week! Four thousand pounds! - stamp duty, estate agent fees. Wedding rings. That sort of thing. I'm sure you can do better.

  192. Fifth-round draw

    A reminder for you of the FA Cup fifth-round draw as it stands:

    Crystal Palace v Liverpool or Bolton Wanderers

    Arsenal v Middlesbrough

    Aston Villa v Leicester City

    West Brom v West Ham

    Bradford City v Sunderland or Fulham

    Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City

    Derby County v Reading

    Preston NE or Sheffield Utd v Cambridge Utd or Manchester Utd

    Fulham v Sunderland (19:45 GMT)

    And Premier League Sunderland will also be hoping to make it into round five after a replay at Fulham.

    Only one of the last 10 matches between Fulham and Sunderland has ended as a home win (five draws, four away wins). The Black Cats have lost just one of their last nine FA Cup matches against lower league opposition (W5 D3 L1).

    Is that the whiff of penalties I sniff in the air?

  194. Tough ask for North End?

    Sheff Utd v Preston (19:45 GMT)

    There are three FA Cup replays tonight. The TV cameras may be at Old Trafford but we will also bring you all of the developments at Bramall Lane.

    Sheffield United have won 12 and lost just two of their last 17 FA Cup matches, while Preston have won just one of their last 19 away trips to Bramall Lane - losing 13.
