Review:
Another unbelievable and unforgetable FA Cup game this season under Cooper. We took a 3-0 lead by the half-hour and, even though Brice Samba gifted them a goal back before half-time, we never looked liked losing this one. We were fast, sharp, always moving forward and the goals were all taken well. Onto the 5th round!

Stats:
The draw for the 5th round was made before the game, and the winners would be at home to Huddersfield
