FA Cup round-up (10-11/03/07)

Pompey had no Premiership match over the weekend due to the FA Cup Quarter Finals, how did these go.

Saturday, 10/03/07
Middlesbrough 2-2 Man Utd
The LIVE BBC match saw Man Utd take the lead through the man than ultimately lead to our own demise in Round Four, Wayne Rooney (23). Boro battled back to level on the stroke of half time through Lee Cattermole (45). Boro continued where they had left off and took the lead early in the second half through George Boateng (47). They couldn't hold it and Cristiano Ronaldo (68) levelled to earn a replay.

Sunday, 11/03/07
Blackburn 2-0 Man City
The mid afternoon LIVE SKY Sports clash saw Blackburn take the lead through Aaron Mokoena (28). The South African then got himself sent off (69) after picking up a second yellow card. As City went on the attack in search of an equaliser Blackburn caught them on the break and wrapped things up through Matt Derbyshire (90) to move into the last four.

Chelsea 3-3 Tottenham
The early afternoon LIVE BBC match saw Spurs fly out of the traps and they were ahead early through Dimitar Berbatov (5). Chelsea levelled through Frank Lampard (22) but Spurs were soon ahead again thanks to a Michael Essien (28) own goal. 2-1 soon became 3-1 as Hossam Ghaly (36) strolled through the Chelsea defence to see Spurs with one foot in the next round. Chelsea battled back and reduced the deficit through Frank Lampard (71) before Salomon Kalou (86) levelled late on to force a replay.

Plymouth 1-0 Watford
The third and final game of the day, the evening LIVE BBC game saw Championship side Plymouth battle and more than give Premiership strugglers Watford a match but they couldn't take their chances. The one that fell to Watford was converted smartly by Hameur Bouazza (21) to put Watford in the last four.

I had predicted wins for Man Utd, Blackburn, Chelsea and Plymouth be that on the day or in replays. Only Plymouth lost with Man Utd and Chelsea heavy favourites to now advance after their opponents more than likely missed their chances by not killing them off in the first place.
