FA Cup: Fulham and Spurs lose; Burton hold on for replay

8 January 2006 21:36

SUNDERLAND, Jan 8 (SW) - The first two Premiership teams to fall at the first hurdle arose today as Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur were both beaten by lower division sides on Sunday.

Sunderland - Northwich Victoria 3-0

Sunderland cast away any demons they may have hanging over their heads from the Premiership and scored a comfortable victory over Northwich Victoria. Neill Collins gave the Black Cats the best start possible as he fired his side into a 6th minute lead with Dean Whitehead adding a second just before half time. Anthony Le Tallec wrapped the game up with 20 minutes remaining when the ball landed at his feet in front of an open net.

Fulham - Leyton Orient 1-2

Fulham suffered the fate of being one of only two Premership teams to be knocked out of the 3rd round of the FA Cup so far as they went down 2-1 at home to League 2 outfit Leyton Orient. Craig Easton opened the scoring in the 17th minute and Joey Keith doubled the lead just a minute before half time. Collins John pulled a goal back for Fulham when he struck from the edge of the box in the 50th minute. John also had a chance to equalise for the Cottagers when Fulham were awarded a penalty but Glyn Garner dived low to his left to parry the ball away to safety and ensure his side will be in the draw for the next round.

Burton Albion - Manchester United 0-0

Burton went into this match with their heads held high as the pressure was all on United not to fall against a non-league side and it showed as they matched the Premiership side for the full 90 minutes. Even the introduction of Ronaldo and Rooney midway through the second half couldn't spur the Red Devils on enough to grab a victory and now the two sides will travel back to Old Trafford for a replay.

Leicester City - Tottenham Hotspur 3-2

Leicester managed to pull off a miraculous comeback at the hands of Spurs after being 2-0 down at one point. Jermaine Jenas scored the first of the day on 20 minutes, before Paul Stalteri added a second in the 41st. Elvis Hammond pulled a goal back for Leicester on the stroke of half time. Stephen Hughes equalised in the 57th minute for the Foxes and it all looked like a replay was on the card until injury time when Mark De Vries scored the winning goal for Leicester in the 91st minute.
