Hull beat Sheffield United to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals; Boro find some form against the Hammers

Hull 2 – Sheffield United 1 (FA Cup, February 26, 2009) A ghastly decision gifted Hull the lead, when a Kyle Naughton header was adjudged to have gone over the line. Billy Sharp equalised for the Blades but a second half strike from Peter Halmosi won the match for the Tigers.

Middlesbrough 2 – West Ham 0 (FA Cup, February 25, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) Stewart Downing curled home a 5th minute free-kick and Tuncay Sanli wrapped up Boro’s win in the 20th minute beating Robert Green with a volley.
