It's been another staggering day in the FA Cup with non-league Lincoln producing one of the biggest shocks in the tournament's history, Millwall beating Premier League champions Leicester, and Man City being held by Huddersfield. Mike Norman has the details...
"There was an even bigger in-play Match Odds price matched at the Den as 10-man Millwall hit a high of 46.045/1 before scoring a late winner against last season's Premier League champions Leicester."
Lincoln City became the first non-league side in 103 years to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after they produced a huge shock to win 1-0 at Premier League side Burnley.
The Imps - currently top of the Vanarama National League - had already beat Championship sides Ipswich and Brighton to become only the ninth non-league team to reach the last 16 of the competition, but few gave them any chance of springing a surprise at fortress Turf Moor.
The Clarets have been magnificent in the Premier League on home soil this term and were generally available to back at around the 1.330/100 mark to win this cup tie, but despite enjoying the majority of possession and creating the best chances they couldn't break down a stubborn and very well organised Lincoln defence.
And as the clocked ticked down, and with all eyes on a replay at Sincil Bank, 23-year-old defender Sean Raggett rose highest to nod home at the far post in the 89th minute, much to the delight of those who backed the Imps at up to a price of 27.026/1 in-play. The 0-1 Correct Score was matched at 40.039/1.
There was an even bigger in-play Match Odds price matched at the Den as 10-man Millwall hit a high of 46.045/1 before scoring a late winner against last season's Premier League champions Leicester.
The Foxes have been in dire league form this year, failing to score in all six of their matches played, and that prompted Claudio Ranieri to make 11 changes from the side that lost 2-0 at Swansea last weekend.
But it was to no avail as Shaun Cummings 90th minute solo effort sealed a dramatic win for Neil Harris' League One side.
Championship highflyers Huddersfield produced a minor shock as they held a strong Manchester City side to a goalless draw at the John Smith's Stadium, but there was no joy for League One Oxford who, despite fighting back from 2-0 down, lost 3-2 at the Riverside Stadium to Premier League outfit Middlesbrough.
Chelsea later defeated Wolves 2-0 at Molineux to consolidate their position as 4.216/5 favourites to lift this season's FA Cup, just ahead of Man City at 4.3100/30, Manchester United, 5.69/2, and Arsenal, 5.85/1. Boro are into 22.021/1 following their win, while Millwall and Lincoln can be backed at 80.079/1 and 150.0149/1 respectively.
