Sheffield United became the first Championship team, since Reading in 2015, to reach the FA Cup semi-final.

Beating Blackburn Rovers 3-2 in a pulsating quarter-final at Bramall Lane on Sunday, the Blades will make their first trip to Wembley since 2014 when they face Manchester City next month.

Heartbreakingly, match-winner Tommy Doyle will not be eligble to play as he is on loan from the Citizens, as is fellow midfielder Jamie McAtee.

No matter the result in the Steel City, the Royals' eight year record as the last second tier side to reach the last four of the oldest cup competition in the world would be broken.

Steve Clarke's side knocked out Huddersfield Town, Cardiff City, Derby County and Bradford City on route to facing Arsenal in the club's first semi-final since 1927.

Alexis Sanchez' brace broke Reading hearts in extra-time, winning 2-1 at the national stadium, but Garath McCleary's equaliser will live long in the memory.

Brighton and Hove Albion, who beat League Two Grimsby Town, will face Manchester United in the other semi-final tie.

No second tier team have won the FA Cup since West Ham in 1980.
