"Burnley's home form is unreal and one of the best in the league, it will be a tough ask but we will enjoy it and give it our best".
Lincoln City continue to be one of the feel good football stories of the season.
Lincoln has made almost 1 million pounds ($1.24 million) from this cup run, putting the club in the black for the first time in years.
The non-league side's Terry Hawkridge then marched up to the former Manchester City and QPR hardman, then seemingly goes down easily, although replays show Barton clearly extending his arm to his face. It was no fluke either as Cowley's side comfortably held at bay a team who a week ago were well worth a 1-1 home draw with Antonio Conte's runaway Premier League leaders Chelsea.
"But no excuses, they approached it in the way cup sides should when you are the lower-ranked team". Swindon, as a non-league side, made it to the semi-finals in 1911/12. Only in the final 20 minutes did they start to suffer but up popped Raggett to head the ball past the despairing dive of Burnley keeper Tom Heaton.
"The real assuredness that comes with growth as a footballer, particularly in the Premier League, is the bit that needs to be added, because we want a future where we are the favourites more often".
Middlesbrough saw a two goal lead disappear as Oxford City scored twice in three minutes and just as another shocked looked likely Boro' scored a late victor to take the tie 3-2.
Fortified by bacon rolls and cups of coffee and tea laid on by the club, hundreds of Lincoln supporters boarded coaches early Saturday and traveled from Sincil Bank in the East Midlands to Turf Moor, a quaint ground with quintessentially English views of rows of terraced houses and old cotton mills.
The Imps didn't look to back off the premier league side despite being the visitors to a side four divisions higher than them.
In January, Atletico Madrid invited a group of their most elderly season-ticket holders to accompany the team onto the pitch, while in 2016, Swedish club AIK paid tribute to its elderly fans with the same gesture when they played a league match against Gefle IF.
I HAVE always loved the FA Cup. The last eight of the FA Cup sounds pretty good.
Chelsea have now won 10 of their last 11 games in all competitions versus Wolves (L1), keeping eight clean sheets in the process.
