Sunderland are through in the FA Cup.

An own from Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli, a Jordi Gomez penalty, and a Ricky Alvarez screamer saw Sunderland power from behind to beat Fulham 3-1 and book an FA Cup fifth round clash with Bradford at Valley Parade.

Sunderland had gone in at half time a goal down after Hugo Rodallega had scrambled home a chance from the Cottagers' only corner before the break, but a second half rally was enough to ensure progression.

We are not going to bullsh*t you here - we didn't watch the game. Therefore we aren't going to pretend we did with elaborate borrowed analysis and second hand opinion. Sunderland won, the end.

Sorry about that. By way of compensation, here are videos of the relevant goals:

Back to back wins, two games from Wembley and scoring a few goals for a while. Canny week for once!
