Welcome to The Emirates FA Cup third-round replay between

:00:32.:00:39.

non-league Lincoln City and 1859 places above them, Ipswich Town of

:00:40.:00:43.

the Championship. The players are in the tunnel getting ready to run out

:00:44.:00:47.

to what will be an emotional and rapturous reception. They came so

:00:48.:00:51.

close to victory at Portman Road ten days ago and what a story it would

:00:52.:00:55.

be if they can tonight clinch that win and take themselves into the

:00:56.:00:59.

fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1976 when this man

:01:00.:01:05.

was in charge. Probably the biggest advantage I

:01:06.:01:08.

have, I think, is that I'm allowed to manage, and I think that goes a

:01:09.:01:16.

long, long way. I feel that it's my forte, I think that I've got

:01:17.:01:20.

qualities as regards coaching. I think that's what I ought to be

:01:21.:01:24.

doing. It's a spectator sport and people come to be entertained, they

:01:25.:01:29.

come to be excited. I see my role as being an employee of Lincoln City

:01:30.:01:33.

now and doing my best so that if I'm here in ten years' time then I've

:01:34.:01:37.

set something up well for the club. The sound of hitting a football

:01:38.:01:43.

thrilled me. My playing career is over, I'm very fortunate I'm a

:01:44.:01:47.

manager and I'd like to remain once simply so I can hear a football

:01:48.:01:48.

being struck. Well, when injury cut his playing

:01:49.:02:00.

career short he started his managerial career at just 28 years

:02:01.:02:05.

old and had five fantastic years here, culminating in winning the old

:02:06.:02:09.

fourth division and he will be remembered fondly tonight and the

:02:10.:02:12.

bands will show their appreciation with a minute's applause just before

:02:13.:02:16.

kick-off. Alongside me current manager of Lincoln City Danny

:02:17.:02:20.

Cowley. Fantastic, just moments away from what could be an historic

:02:21.:02:23.

evening. How much of an inspiration is Graham Taylor to you? Just a

:02:24.:02:27.

proper football man, really humble and dignified. When we first arrived

:02:28.:02:33.

at the club ceremony supporters spoke about Graham and the legacy he

:02:34.:02:38.

left and the way he connected the players with the City and the people

:02:39.:02:42.

and it is something we have tried to continue with. How many times over

:02:43.:02:47.

the last ten days have you thought we were so close, it was a missed

:02:48.:02:50.

opportunity? The thing I was most pleased about from the game ten days

:02:51.:02:54.

ago was the fact when we came into the dressing room afterwards there

:02:55.:02:57.

was a tinge of disappointment amongst us all we were able to go

:02:58.:03:01.

toe to toe with a Championship club was something we were proud of and

:03:02.:03:05.

the fact we got so close and just a little short. Alongside you, of

:03:06.:03:11.

course, former Ipswich Town captain Terry Butcher, Trevor Sinclair.

:03:12.:03:16.

Trevor, what a match it was and what a moment it was and how close they

:03:17.:03:21.

came. Credit to the Lincoln City players and staff, they put

:03:22.:03:24.

themselves about, competed well and were close to winning. If it wasn't

:03:25.:03:28.

for Tom Lawrence's brilliance and scuffing one in for the second they

:03:29.:03:32.

would have been in the fourth round. The Welsh international online from

:03:33.:03:36.

Leicester saved the day, said Mick McCarthy's blushes. He did and he

:03:37.:03:39.

got two goals on Saturday against Blackburn, the second one was a

:03:40.:03:44.

rocket. Danny Willett have him well marked in this game because he is a

:03:45.:03:47.

threat. The atmosphere, we are getting butterflies in the stomach,

:03:48.:03:52.

you must be having to bring the players down to somewhere where they

:03:53.:03:55.

can appreciate this but at the same time they have a job to do. How

:03:56.:03:58.

tough was that early in the dressing room? I think so, the atmosphere is

:03:59.:04:03.

unbelievable, not something we are used to, there are 10,000 people in

:04:04.:04:06.

here tonight and we have to enjoy this experience, use the supporters

:04:07.:04:11.

and use their energy but still play with our heads. A little fun and

:04:12.:04:14.

frivolity in the dressing room but you seemed to get the message across

:04:15.:04:17.

of what the job is tonight and that is to get through to the fourth

:04:18.:04:22.

round for the first time since 1976. Best of luck, go and join your

:04:23.:04:26.

brother Nicky in the dugout and we will hopefully speak to you later.

:04:27.:04:29.

What an historic win it would be. You are looking through this through

:04:30.:04:31.

slightly blue eyes from an Ipswich perspective and they have

:04:32.:04:45.

made changes to night, Mick McCarthy has been given a second chance.

:04:46.:04:47.

Straightaway after the win against Blackburn on Saturday, Mick McCarthy

:04:48.:04:49.

said this is about experienced players and has made changes, as did

:04:50.:04:52.

Danny in the game against Gateshead last Saturday. Fresh legs but it

:04:53.:04:54.

will be the same game, if not more intense than the first one. You are

:04:55.:04:57.

so impressed with the setup here and what the Cowley Brothers have done,

:04:58.:04:59.

you came here ahead of Football Focus third-round ten days ago and

:05:00.:05:02.

you just saw a managerial setup that is not missing any attention to

:05:03.:05:06.

detail, which we hope to see later on. But right now, the crowd here

:05:07.:05:11.

will applaud for a minute ahead of kick-off and remember the manager

:05:12.:05:17.

who won the fourth division here in his five years. Former England

:05:18.:05:18.

manager Graham Taylor. Such appreciation and huge love for

:05:19.:06:30.

Graham Taylor here. I am going to hand you over to your commentary

:06:31.:06:34.

team Jermaine Jenas and David Pearce. COMMENTATOR: Not so many

:06:35.:06:41.

nights like this at Sincil Bank. Throbbing with events to come and

:06:42.:06:47.

tinged with sadness. I was privileged to know Graham and his

:06:48.:06:51.

generosity and friendship, and his smile of course, and he would love

:06:52.:06:57.

this. All setup, Lincoln City, one defeat in 21, unbeaten in ten FA Cup

:06:58.:07:02.

ties, looking for the fourth round for the first time in 41 years when

:07:03.:07:05.

Graham took them to West Brom. They have their dangers, the likes of

:07:06.:07:09.

Robinson upfront, already six goals in five FA Cup ties this season.

:07:10.:07:15.

Unchanged from the first game. Six of the side rested for the game

:07:16.:07:21.

against Gateshead. Nathan Arnold Andy Robinson only have gone beyond

:07:22.:07:29.

that. Ben Toner with a job to do, the referee. Ipswich in the blue and

:07:30.:07:34.

white will get us off and under way. Under fire from disgruntled fans,

:07:35.:07:38.

brittle form, injury hit, former cup winners but without a single victory

:07:39.:07:44.

in the competition since 2010. A recipe for a giant stew. Watch out

:07:45.:07:56.

for Matt Reid who is a giant upfront. You can see the Ipswich

:07:57.:08:02.

team. Two of the five changes from the Portman Road draw. Chambers has

:08:03.:08:09.

proved his fitness against Blackburn at the weekend. Best has recovered

:08:10.:08:15.

from the sickness that kept him out of the last two games. Matthew

:08:16.:08:21.

Rhead, there he is, as we were telling you about. Perfect recipe

:08:22.:08:26.

for an FA Cup giant steel. Mick McCarthy's 900 game, needing the

:08:27.:08:38.

win. This is a dangerous run straightaway from Nathan Arnold who

:08:39.:08:42.

can be so tricky down the right-hand side. Back to the right-back Bradley

:08:43.:08:51.

Wood, England C International. Never been beyond this, hoping to go

:08:52.:08:55.

beyond this, goal kick to Ipswich. You saw the first game? Yes, you

:08:56.:09:01.

mentioned Arnold he was a prominent figure in the first one cause and

:09:02.:09:04.

Ipswich Town a lot of problems and that's what he will need to do again

:09:05.:09:08.

today, with the three at the back Ipswich have started with the back

:09:09.:09:12.

of their win at the weekend that is where the spaces will be in the

:09:13.:09:18.

white areas with the wingbacks pushing on and those balls from

:09:19.:09:21.

midfield will have to be played more often for Lincoln. The manager is

:09:22.:09:31.

Billy Cowley and his brother is Nicky. Remarkable work at Braintree.

:09:32.:09:34.

Doubling up as secondary school PE teachers as well. The school is in

:09:35.:09:44.

Essex. Now they are full-time here and steering Lincoln City, it would

:09:45.:09:48.

seem, back into the Football League. They were relegated in 2011. Mick

:09:49.:10:02.

McCarthy, so experienced. In old club football, 24 years, six jobs,

:10:03.:10:08.

including the Irish manager's job. 900 games. But he's under pressure

:10:09.:10:11.

and knows it and he needs a victory tonight, that's for sure. Douglas in

:10:12.:10:21.

midfield wearing 22, now 35, the Irishman. Experienced midfielder.

:10:22.:10:31.

Here's 30. Watch out for Young Grant Ward. He started at Tottenham

:10:32.:10:33.

Hotspur and didn't make the grade. He scored a hat-trick on the opening

:10:34.:10:38.

day of the season. The old FA Cup type challenge. Rhead with a word.

:10:39.:10:48.

He was part of the Mansfield team that pushed Liverpool all the way in

:10:49.:10:56.

2013. That is a reminder. There will be plenty of those from Rhead going

:10:57.:11:00.

in, he is a handful and they struggled to deal with him in the

:11:01.:11:04.

first game. One of the type of players who is perfect to play off.

:11:05.:11:10.

Here comes the right wingback for Ipswich, Emmanuel, with a cross to

:11:11.:11:14.

the far post and beyond Douglas. He was in there. He hasn't scored this

:11:15.:11:20.

season. He was part of the Leeds team that were beaten by non-league

:11:21.:11:25.

Histon in 2008. Free kick won by Robinson. It's definitely a similar

:11:26.:11:32.

start to this game. The centre halves of Ipswich struggling, this

:11:33.:11:36.

time it is Robinson causing the problems to error. The more they can

:11:37.:11:41.

get the ball to those two upfront the more opportunities they will be

:11:42.:11:52.

able to create for themselves. Our first came here in a quarterfinal in

:11:53.:12:00.

2011 - 12. Habergham's free kick into the penalty area. They used

:12:01.:12:06.

three centre-backs at the weekend against Blackburn. Decent run by

:12:07.:12:17.

Hawkridge. Dean Gerken, the Ipswich Town cup goalkeeper. His third

:12:18.:12:33.

appearance of the season. There does not seem to be a great deal of pace

:12:34.:12:37.

in the Ipswich midfield trio. What do you think? Mick McCarthy has gone

:12:38.:12:43.

for experience, in the first game he felt it was a bit lightweight in the

:12:44.:12:48.

midfield area. That is a good throw out to Lawrence. Very much their

:12:49.:12:54.

danger man. Opens things up to manual but drops a little bit short.

:12:55.:13:00.

Hawkridge winning it back and they look to counter quickly. Here is

:13:01.:13:03.

Nathan Arnold, he could be key. Stabbed away by Chambers, kept in by

:13:04.:13:11.

the goalkeeper. It is a nervy start from Ipswich, not what Mick McCarthy

:13:12.:13:14.

would have wanted. They have not been able to get the ball on the

:13:15.:13:18.

deck and Jet2 passes together. They could get a lot of joy down the

:13:19.:13:22.

right-hand side with Arnold and he will be asking more from his side,

:13:23.:13:25.

Mick McCarthy. He could do without the injuries, Coldrick and Pitman,

:13:26.:13:31.

but he has Tom Lawrence, full of confidence, his 100th career game on

:13:32.:13:36.

loan from the champions Leicester, four goals in his last two. That is

:13:37.:13:47.

Cole Skuse. Jonas Knudsen, the Danish international, and a Danish

:13:48.:13:54.

cup winner when he was there. Skuse towards Grant Ward, who came off the

:13:55.:13:57.

bench on the opening day of the season to score a hat-trick of the

:13:58.:14:00.

first Ipswich substitute ever to do it. The challenge by Luke Waterfall,

:14:01.:14:07.

the captain of the home side. A player who has never reached the

:14:08.:14:12.

third round, powerful, very good in the air, the two centre-backs.

:14:13.:14:23.

Described as front foot defenders. Knudsen with the throw. Christophe

:14:24.:14:31.

Berra. He was with Mick McCarthy at Wolves of course. The backpass

:14:32.:14:37.

signifies a team playing with very little confidence. I have to say it

:14:38.:14:41.

surprised me because the way Knudsen setup on the right-hand side for the

:14:42.:14:45.

throw in was as if he has a long throw to put into the box and the

:14:46.:14:48.

players got into the right area and for him to go back to his

:14:49.:14:53.

centre-half is a of a lack of direction and the way they want to

:14:54.:14:59.

play. They haven't been beaten by a non-league side since 1960 when the

:15:00.:15:04.

Sir Alf Ramsey's team were beaten by Peter Brough. From the depths of

:15:05.:15:11.

that trough he led Ipswich to Championship success. Big burly Sean

:15:12.:15:22.

Raggett gets it away. Signed from Dover, beaten in the Conference

:15:23.:15:27.

play-off at semifinal last season. Pretty sure this one is going into

:15:28.:15:31.

the box. This will be long from UNESCO -- Jonas Knudsen. One of

:15:32.:15:41.

their tactics. There it goes. Away by Raggett again. Knudsen with the

:15:42.:15:44.

touch. Towards Nathan Arnold. skews, neatly taken down by Tom

:15:45.:15:53.

Lawrence. Lawrence did a good job. A shot from Arnold. He has ten goals

:15:54.:16:18.

this season. This will be on all day following can. Nobody for Ipswich is

:16:19.:16:24.

willing to get close enough to any players and Rhead is an absolute

:16:25.:16:29.

handful. If they can get bodies in and around him, they will have bits

:16:30.:16:34.

and pieces around the box and they will create chances. This will have

:16:35.:16:40.

felt good to Farman, the goalkeeper. Didn't have the best game at Portman

:16:41.:16:44.

Road and he will have needed that for his conference. He had a

:16:45.:16:49.

horrible moment against man's reeled in the 2006 FA Cup when he conceded

:16:50.:16:55.

in the own goal. Former Newcastle youngster. A fair few Lincoln

:16:56.:17:00.

players didn't make the grade at their first clubs and had to go

:17:01.:17:04.

away. Many travelled the non-league circuit. The way things are going,

:17:05.:17:10.

they will be back in the Football League very shortly. That's the

:17:11.:17:16.

brilliant thing about the National League. Taking those players, giving

:17:17.:17:21.

them first-team football, bringing them back into the system. What's

:17:22.:17:25.

going on at Lincoln, with the setup and what the manager wants, it can

:17:26.:17:29.

only bode well for these players and their careers. Look at the pace of

:17:30.:17:37.

Lawrence. Gets a shot away. He's scored some very good goals

:17:38.:17:41.

recently, a blister at the weekend against Blackburn and he was looking

:17:42.:17:45.

for his eighth of the season. He's dangerous, direct and full of

:17:46.:17:50.

confidence. Only one thought in his mind, shoot as soon as. Rightly so.

:17:51.:17:56.

Didn't get the contacting wanted. Very quiet off the field of play.

:17:57.:18:04.

He's got alarm bells ringing with Premier League clubs looking at him.

:18:05.:18:07.

Look at the boy Lawrence, they are saying. It turned into an inviting

:18:08.:18:15.

cross. Bending away at the last moment. Lincoln worked the ball very

:18:16.:18:25.

quickly, they press high. Very much the style of Danny Cowley and his

:18:26.:18:31.

brother. They were at Concord and Braintree, non-league clubs. Great

:18:32.:18:40.

delivery into the box. The keeper makes the right decision to help out

:18:41.:18:45.

his defenders. Running towards your own goal with a delivery like that,

:18:46.:18:51.

it usually causes own goals. Good decision by Gerken to come out and

:18:52.:18:58.

punch. Is Lawrence hobbling? That would be a real blow. Got one round

:18:59.:19:08.

beyond this last season. He was on loan at Oxford last year. Cardiff

:19:09.:19:15.

and Rotherham. He is on loan from Leicester, he's only played four

:19:16.:19:20.

games for them in two and a half years. Aggressively won.

:19:21.:19:29.

Luke Chambers missed the first game with a swollen knee.

:19:30.:19:42.

Lawrence was clipped as he turned away. They are not going to give him

:19:43.:19:49.

an easy ride because they saw how dangerous he was in the opening

:19:50.:19:54.

game. You want to get close to Lawrence because you know he can

:19:55.:19:58.

cause problems. Waterfall won't get away with many of those. 6/3-round

:19:59.:20:07.

defeats in a row for Ipswich. They haven't won an FA Cup tie since they

:20:08.:20:11.

went to Blackpool in the third round in 2010. Jack Colback scored that

:20:12.:20:25.

day. Too high. Not happy with that. Four away defeats in their last

:20:26.:20:36.

five. The owner of the club, Marcus Evans, recently backed Mick

:20:37.:20:39.

McCarthy. Backed him to get them progressing again. Grant Ward, the

:20:40.:20:45.

youngster. Tidy enough. Away by Waterfall. He's there again.

:20:46.:21:07.

That was much better from Ipswich. Willing to receive the ball in tight

:21:08.:21:12.

areas, pass the ball to each other, make Lincoln work harder to get on

:21:13.:21:16.

the ball. Lawrence got himself into a decent spot on the left. It's what

:21:17.:21:21.

they need to do to get out of the press Lincoln keep putting them

:21:22.:21:22.

under. You will often see Robinson is the

:21:23.:21:34.

furthest forward Lincoln player. Matt Reid will drop in almost to the

:21:35.:21:43.

number 10 role. It's been a feature of their play this season. We saw

:21:44.:21:51.

him a bit deeper there. A good touch from Leon Best.

:21:52.:22:00.

What form he's in, the Jamaican international. His goals in the cup

:22:01.:22:07.

against Guiseley and two against Oldham and Ipswich. He's almost got

:22:08.:22:12.

the perfect strike partner for the way he likes to play. He likes to be

:22:13.:22:17.

high up the park and play of the shoulder. The two he scored against

:22:18.:22:23.

Ipswich were brilliant strikers goals. One getting across the

:22:24.:22:28.

goalkeeper and the volley over his shoulder was textbook. Two young men

:22:29.:22:33.

making a name for themselves and the old stage who's been there and seen

:22:34.:22:36.

it. Managed at the World Cup finals. A dangerous ball looking for Rhead.

:22:37.:22:56.

Pressure in that area of the pitch. Brilliant play from Hawkridge on the

:22:57.:23:01.

right. A good touch to get it under control and knows exactly what he

:23:02.:23:05.

wants to do. He knows Rhead is on the back post and a lovely delivery.

:23:06.:23:10.

Knutson does very well to put him off. Three centre backs and the big

:23:11.:23:18.

6-foot four centre-back is left with the left back. That's what will

:23:19.:23:24.

happen at times. The defenders get dragged over to one side and it's up

:23:25.:23:25.

to the wingbacks to help out. Waterfall is that his ninth club,

:23:26.:23:40.

formerly at Tranmere and Barnsley. In PD in the air. -- he was in PD in

:23:41.:23:45.

the air. Luke Waterfall, part of the team

:23:46.:24:07.

that played so well in the first game at Portman Road when Mick

:24:08.:24:10.

McCarthy was big enough to say they were the better team and he's

:24:11.:24:14.

repeated that today. Knudsen under pressure. Cleared away by Cole

:24:15.:24:25.

Skuse. Down the line by Sam Habergham. A very settled Lincoln

:24:26.:24:27.

side. Away by Paul Digby, 21 years old.

:24:28.:24:43.

Second start this season. He's had injury problems. Suspicion of a

:24:44.:24:53.

push, but again high pressure from Hawkridge.

:24:54.:25:01.

That high pressure is a feature of the game all over the park. At the

:25:02.:25:13.

minute Ipswich are second best. He had to react quickly, Paul Farman.

:25:14.:25:24.

Risky by Woodyard, he's a better player than that. It was risky, but

:25:25.:25:31.

the keeper does the right thing. Any doubts in your mind, get your foot

:25:32.:25:35.

through it and get it away from danger.

:25:36.:26:01.

The effort by Ward was blocked. A challenge by Power. The keeper hast

:26:02.:26:09.

to come and claim. Woodyard could have scored the

:26:10.:26:25.

winning goal in the first game. Played for the Cowley Brothers at

:26:26.:26:33.

Concord and Braintree. They did remarkable work at Braintree on a

:26:34.:26:36.

tiny budget. The flag catches Theo Robinson. I

:26:37.:27:01.

think he was just offside as the ball was played. Knudsen manages to

:27:02.:27:10.

get in line and Robinson was just offside. It's an area he should be

:27:11.:27:16.

looking to. They are struggling on the left at the back. It's the area

:27:17.:27:21.

Robinson needs to get at to get some joy. This is his 13th club, nearly

:27:22.:27:28.

400 games. He scored a couple of goals for Huddersfield in a big

:27:29.:27:32.

League Cup game at St James' Park. They lost but he played well that

:27:33.:27:39.

day. He had a spell at Derby. He tended to polarise opinions in those

:27:40.:27:47.

days. Hawkridge, who is thought of very highly here. What the Cowley

:27:48.:27:55.

boys do is work very hard with their players. If they have natural

:27:56.:28:00.

ability, Mike Hawkridge and Arnold, they work on what they call the

:28:01.:28:05.

grubby side of the game, closing and pressure rising. It's a feel-good

:28:06.:28:11.

story here at the moment. Rhead was caught. Very good play. Getting

:28:12.:28:23.

himself into that area where he can be the hold-up man. He has a lovely

:28:24.:28:29.

touch for a big man. The challenge was late from Douglas. Another

:28:30.:28:34.

situation where Ipswich will have to deal with it. Just followed through

:28:35.:28:41.

on to his left knee. 11 goals this season. The first Lincoln player to

:28:42.:28:50.

20 lead goals last campaign since Simon Yeo something like 12 years

:28:51.:28:58.

ago. Looking for Waterfall. And racket. -- racket.

:28:59.:29:09.

Mick McCarthy will be pleased that they've drawn a bit of the Lincoln

:29:10.:29:16.

staying in what is a very tricky replay. He will say how many chances

:29:17.:29:24.

have Lincoln created? He will be a lot happier now than in the first

:29:25.:29:27.

five or ten minutes. At that point it was looking like a matter of time

:29:28.:29:32.

before Lincoln created a clear-cut opportunity. They've settled down.

:29:33.:29:37.

If they can get the ball into the final third a lot more, Lawrence and

:29:38.:29:42.

Best and Grant can cause Lincoln problems, but they can't get the

:29:43.:29:48.

ball. They've had no service in dangerous areas yet. A lot of people

:29:49.:29:52.

have been grumbling about Mick McCarthy's recent record at Portman

:29:53.:29:57.

Road, but they were bottom when he took over in 2012 and he's guided

:29:58.:30:03.

them to three top ten finishes in a row and the budget at Ipswich is one

:30:04.:30:07.

of the lowest in the Championship. I would think in the bottom six. A

:30:08.:30:17.

couple of signings yesterday. Midway through the half. Looking for

:30:18.:30:28.

Rhead... Robinson with a shot and a decent block. Important block by

:30:29.:30:30.

Paul Digby. Back in by Power. Hawkridge trying to shrug off the

:30:31.:30:45.

defender and open up an angle to get the cross in, and does so. Waterfall

:30:46.:30:53.

was still up there. Pressure on Ipswich. Definitely got the crowd

:30:54.:30:59.

going. Digby did absolutely brilliantly to get hold of Robinson

:31:00.:31:05.

in the situation he found himself in once he was twisting and turning to

:31:06.:31:09.

defend. A great opportunity for Robinson. The capacity here is just

:31:10.:31:18.

under 10,000. Ipswich sold 1100 of their 1500 allocation. It won't

:31:19.:31:23.

quite be full, but the biggest crowd since they played Liverpool in a

:31:24.:31:29.

friendly. The biggest competitive crowd in a decade since they played

:31:30.:31:34.

Huddersfield. Here's the chance. He does brilliantly, Robinson. Digby

:31:35.:31:40.

knew that Knudsen was in trouble and got across to help out his

:31:41.:31:45.

team-mate. What a block that is to keep it at 0-0.

:31:46.:31:50.

The touch by Lawrence. Woodyard. Charlton and Southend boy. The shot

:31:51.:32:07.

by Douglas, always passing wide. Real old-fashioned football ground.

:32:08.:32:13.

Modernised over the years. Still the old feeling like 1895 around. Just

:32:14.:32:24.

under 10,000, they think, in here. But terrific atmosphere. You always

:32:25.:32:30.

see loads of kids at an FA Cup tie, may be experiencing the FA Cup for

:32:31.:32:34.

the first time. Enthusiastic faces, one or two oldies in there as well.

:32:35.:32:47.

Here is Rhead. It's an Ipswich ball.

:32:48.:32:58.

He's been told to get back a few yards. His third FA Cup tie in his

:32:59.:33:03.

career. Goals the problem for Ipswich at the

:33:04.:33:16.

moment. With Pitman injured and McGoldrick injured it was always

:33:17.:33:21.

likely to be so. That was met by Robinson. Woodyard away. Lovely

:33:22.:33:34.

touch by Rhead. He has a soft touch for a big fellow. He definitely has

:33:35.:33:43.

and that is such a good outboard. As soon as he picks up the ball on the

:33:44.:33:47.

left-hand side he only has one thought, where is Rhead, where can I

:33:48.:33:51.

find my man? He picks him out command as you can see he is causing

:33:52.:33:57.

more problems. Wood with the throw. A suspicion of handball on the

:33:58.:34:02.

cross, not. Of course, the Lincoln fans don't think it was. Out by

:34:03.:34:07.

Best, quickly whipped around by Lawrence, lovely ball, the

:34:08.:34:11.

goalkeeper has gone out. He stumbled into Grant Ward. I think Grant Ward

:34:12.:34:17.

just fell over. That was what I was talking about, if you get them on

:34:18.:34:21.

the ball enough they have enough creativity to cause problems.

:34:22.:34:24.

Beautiful pass from Lawrence, first time, whipped over the back of the

:34:25.:34:29.

defender. Grant was chasing it. Nice to see the goalkeeper stay on his

:34:30.:34:35.

feet and not go sliding in. Definitely not a penalty. He was

:34:36.:34:39.

going down. He tripped over himself, I don't think he was looking for it,

:34:40.:34:44.

just good Ipswich play that the keeper did well. What about this

:34:45.:34:48.

one? Any time it is that close it cannot be a penalty, there is

:34:49.:34:53.

nothing he can do. It hit him around the chest anyway. Little stumble by

:34:54.:34:58.

Woodyard. Wood competitive, as he always is. Sent off four times in

:34:59.:35:07.

his Lincoln City career. Top of the National League. A remarkable

:35:08.:35:19.

turnaround for Lincoln. November 19, 89 minutes gone, they were losing at

:35:20.:35:26.

Wood Green. -- Forest Green. They would have been 19 points behind

:35:27.:35:29.

them, they won 3-2 and they are a couple of points ahead now, Forest

:35:30.:35:34.

Green. Wonderful run. Knudsen with the cross. Arriving with a great run

:35:35.:35:46.

was Alex Woodyard. Big chance. Huge chance, he didn't connect with it

:35:47.:35:53.

the way he wanted to. Robinson and Rhead were not involved so Ipswich

:35:54.:35:59.

switched from the danger. I think it came off his shoulder. That was not

:36:00.:36:03.

great defending in the middle of the Ipswich penalty area. They are a

:36:04.:36:07.

centre-back three and they didn't work well there as a unit. The

:36:08.:36:12.

Cowley boys thought that was in and here they come again, looking for

:36:13.:36:21.

Robinson. He has pushed his man. He was released as a boy at Stoke at

:36:22.:36:26.

16, went to Watford, would have known Graham Taylor from there.

:36:27.:36:35.

Played six games and signed for Port Vale. A chequered career, went up to

:36:36.:36:42.

the league with Hereford from the Conference, relegated with Doncaster

:36:43.:36:48.

one year. They tell me he's very quiet off the field but very

:36:49.:36:49.

competitive on it. Best challenged. Half an hour

:36:50.:37:44.

played. Cleared away by Luke Chambers. He was at the Northampton

:37:45.:37:52.

team that pushed Manchester United all the way back in 2004. United won

:37:53.:37:55.

1-0. Bradley Wood with the throw. Lincoln

:37:56.:38:07.

fans think very highly of him because when they were queueing for

:38:08.:38:11.

tickets the whole day, Bradley Wood came out with Cofie and he went down

:38:12.:38:24.

the line of fans giving out Cofie. Ipswich have got to be careful. They

:38:25.:38:28.

are constantly giving away free kicks in these areas of the pitch.

:38:29.:38:32.

It doesn't matter to Lincoln, it's going in and around the box where

:38:33.:38:36.

they can get knock-downs to cause Ipswich problems. That should be

:38:37.:38:48.

dealt with and is by Digby. The goals have dried up for Digby in

:38:49.:38:50.

recent years. Cole Skuse, he was at Bristol City

:38:51.:39:04.

for about ten years. A team-mate of his is on the opposition bench

:39:05.:39:15.

today. Jamie McCombe. Lawrence felt there was a foul. Seemed to duck to

:39:16.:39:25.

anticipate that. Possession 50-50. One attempt on

:39:26.:39:42.

target so far. Hawkridge trying to make his way through. The cross back

:39:43.:39:52.

into the box. Coming to the right-hand side now, switching to

:39:53.:39:56.

his left foot. Robinson. Rhead was in behind between the two defenders

:39:57.:40:02.

and the header goes wide. Brilliant play. Genuine quality in this side,

:40:03.:40:06.

drops back onto his left foot. Lovely flighted ball as you can see.

:40:07.:40:12.

Chops back onto his left hand side, no one getting close to him, and

:40:13.:40:17.

Rhead gets between the defenders. You probably think he should do

:40:18.:40:22.

better. He gets to the ball. He couldn't quite get his head to it,

:40:23.:40:26.

lovely delivery. He could see it all the way. You can see what the

:40:27.:40:32.

manager thought. He thought it was in. He says they cannot overuse him

:40:33.:40:35.

because he does tire, Matt Rhead. Here is Arnold. Very impressive, the

:40:36.:40:57.

Cowley management team. I know Trevor Sinclair was here last week

:40:58.:40:59.

in the build-up to the first game and was really impressed with the

:41:00.:41:04.

way they prepare for matches and their way they have conducted

:41:05.:41:05.

themselves. You can almost tell sometimes by the

:41:06.:41:17.

way a team warms up and their general setup what kind of things

:41:18.:41:22.

are going on in the background. I watched both games, the game

:41:23.:41:25.

previous to this one and this one tonight and the way they conduct

:41:26.:41:28.

themselves throughout the warm up and beforehand with each other, you

:41:29.:41:32.

can tell they are run in a good manner. Towards Best.

:41:33.:41:42.

Don't forget you can see the FA Cup replay highlights tomorrow night on

:41:43.:41:50.

BBC One at 10:45pm. The next live FA Cup action is the fourth round tie,

:41:51.:41:53.

Derby against Leicester, the champions, the ailing champions, big

:41:54.:42:01.

rivals. Friday 27th on BBC One. All across the BBC, the FA Cup.

:42:02.:42:07.

They are talking about moving from Sincil Bank and having a new home

:42:08.:42:13.

purpose built. I'm not sure if that is going to happen. A good

:42:14.:42:16.

atmospheric night here tonight. Lawrence with a real beef of a

:42:17.:42:26.

challenge. He likes a tackle. He's had to deal with a couple, Lawrence

:42:27.:42:30.

but he's getting on with it, giving him a smile, just saying, just give

:42:31.:42:34.

me one opportunity in front of that goal and I'm sure I can take that

:42:35.:42:39.

smile off him. He is keeping his calm at the moment. England is a

:42:40.:42:47.

non-league England team squad member. Ward progressing to the edge

:42:48.:42:54.

of the penalty area. Emmanuel Riviere cross all the way through.

:42:55.:42:59.

Lincoln know they cannot switch off for a moment. The National League

:43:00.:43:07.

side is 59 places below Ipswich, as we were hearing earlier on. You

:43:08.:43:13.

wouldn't believe that from what we have seen so far. No, you definitely

:43:14.:43:18.

wouldn't. I think the difference between the two sides, one knows

:43:19.:43:21.

exactly the way they want to play and the other doesn't. There have

:43:22.:43:23.

been a couple of times when Leon Best has come short, and when it

:43:24.:43:30.

goes wrong they go along and when they come short it go short, Lincoln

:43:31.:43:35.

know how they want to play. They get Rhead to play and play off him. It

:43:36.:43:38.

suits them well and with the energy they have got and their general play

:43:39.:43:44.

that's why they have probably had the best of it in the first half.

:43:45.:43:53.

Farman looks for Rhead, dropping a bit short, Douglas is competing with

:43:54.:43:58.

him. By four inches the shorter man, the Irish man. Hawkridge turning

:43:59.:44:06.

out, bringing Habergham interplay. One of the England C squad players.

:44:07.:44:23.

Habergham played at Braintree. This has to be settled tonight, of

:44:24.:44:27.

course. Very little in it at the moment. Christophe Berra. A bad

:44:28.:44:32.

mistake for the second mistake in the first game. The header that

:44:33.:44:39.

dropped out. It was a great finish, though. He took it, Robinson. He's

:44:40.:44:44.

been in unbelievable form, hasn't he? 28 next week is Theo Robinson.

:44:45.:44:53.

He certainly can play at league level and that is where they are

:44:54.:44:57.

heading at the moment. Are they heading into the lead here?

:44:58.:45:02.

Hawkridge. They go back to him and he still managed to have the vision

:45:03.:45:06.

and wherewithal to hold it up. That is out of play by Woodyard. You

:45:07.:45:12.

could see clearly with Ipswich where the issues are. Grant in midfield,

:45:13.:45:18.

he has tried to make something happen, wants to get on the ball and

:45:19.:45:21.

wants to try and have an impact on the game but whenever he picks it up

:45:22.:45:25.

nobody is moving, nobody wants it and that is why he gets caught on

:45:26.:45:27.

it. Away by Digby. Digby has played just

:45:28.:45:44.

nine minutes since August before tonight with a knee problem.

:45:45.:45:46.

Chambers got it away. Not really been able to get Lawrence

:45:47.:46:13.

into the game yet, it's which. -- Ipswich. Really good balance on him.

:46:14.:46:20.

Blocked by Power. A touch by Raggett was enough.

:46:21.:46:36.

What a scalp it would be for Lincoln. Ipswich Town, winners of

:46:37.:46:45.

the cup in 1978. Roger Osborne's goal against Arsenal. What a team

:46:46.:46:50.

that was. They went on to win the UEFA Cup in 1981. Terry Butcher at

:46:51.:46:56.

the back. He's here tonight. The last 16 Lincoln reached only

:46:57.:47:26.

three times. The last time in 1901. In them and -- in the 18 hundredths,

:47:27.:47:31.

Glasgow Rangers beat them! In the English FA Cup! Decent offending by

:47:32.:47:41.

Chambers. -- defending. The first corner kick of the game. Five

:47:42.:47:50.

minutes to go, first flag kick. Causing a lot of problems in the

:47:51.:47:54.

last 15 minutes. Chambers did well to sense the danger and not allowed

:47:55.:48:01.

to cross into the box. Sam Habergham will take it. Former Norwich

:48:02.:48:05.

schoolboy. Can he put the skids under its switch? -- Ipswich. The

:48:06.:48:13.

big boys were in there. It was aimed at Waterfall.

:48:14.:48:46.

Away by Digby. Touched down by Nathan Arnold. Good pressure. Ward.

:48:47.:49:01.

A question of bearer holding onto Matt Rhead, but I guess that's the

:49:02.:49:12.

way they will deal with him. He's got hold of his shirt. Matt Read

:49:13.:49:17.

throws himself around, it gets his arm into you. You will have to be

:49:18.:49:23.

physical with him. Berra will have to be clever because if the referee

:49:24.:49:29.

sees that, he won't be shy to blow the whistle and give the penalty.

:49:30.:49:37.

Christophe Berra, 32 later this month. Scottish Cup winner for

:49:38.:49:46.

Hearts in 2006, although he was on the bench. I think he was the

:49:47.:49:57.

youngest SBL captain at the time. -- SPL. Looking at it, I would expect

:49:58.:50:07.

Mick McCarthy to want more. He would want them to work harder, get closer

:50:08.:50:13.

to the Lincoln players and almost do to them what Lincoln are doing to

:50:14.:50:17.

Ipswich. They are not laying a glove on Lincoln at the moment, they are

:50:18.:50:22.

hanging on rather than trying to create something themselves. Lincoln

:50:23.:50:26.

have had much the better of this half. I'm sure Mick McCarthy will

:50:27.:50:30.

want a lot more from his side than just hanging on. Took Sunderland to

:50:31.:50:37.

the Championship title, took Wolves to the Championship title, took

:50:38.:50:43.

Ireland to the World Cup finals. A dramatic few weeks in the far east.

:50:44.:50:50.

In Lincolnshire, it's 0-0. A long throw by Habergham into the

:50:51.:51:12.

box. Brilliant save! Denying Waterfall. Reaction save by Dean

:51:13.:51:23.

Gerken keeps it at 0-0. He's given a goal kick! It's an unbelievable save

:51:24.:51:31.

from Gerken. A long throw into the box, defenders get mixed up. It

:51:32.:51:35.

falls to Waterfall and what a fantastic save that is. How the

:51:36.:51:45.

referee hasn't seen that! Rhead with the initial touch on, Waterfall with

:51:46.:51:48.

the effort. This is definitely a corner. Yeah! He tips it round the

:51:49.:51:55.

post, a brilliant save. Even the keeper wants that to be a corner.

:51:56.:52:00.

Trust me, I tipped it around the post! He's had to wait a long time

:52:01.:52:06.

for this chance, only his third game this season. Played in the first

:52:07.:52:11.

game ten days ago. A huge moment. They've struggled with that in the

:52:12.:52:17.

first half, Ipswich, the long balls into the box. What a save that was

:52:18.:52:21.

from Gerken, kept his side right in it. The two centre backs have 11

:52:22.:52:30.

goals this season for Lincoln. You can see why. It's the way they play.

:52:31.:52:36.

They know their strengths and they played to that. When I look at

:52:37.:52:40.

Ipswich, I can't even tell you the way they play, it's so off-the-cuff.

:52:41.:52:48.

But what a save that is. We are into stoppage time. Dean Gerken with the

:52:49.:52:58.

save of the half. A slip as clips and tried to get the throw quickly

:52:59.:53:05.

away to Lawrence. -- Knudson. Lincoln have been the more

:53:06.:53:09.

aggressive team, they've been the more deserving team. They have. They

:53:10.:53:14.

get the ball into good areas, into the box, they cause issues, they

:53:15.:53:19.

have willing runners in midfield, they press and get close to people.

:53:20.:53:24.

Hawkridge and Arnold on the flanks have got real quality and they are

:53:25.:53:27.

getting the better of their opponents. Chambers will tidy up.

:53:28.:53:38.

31, Luke Chambers. Defence under pressure again although Grant Ward

:53:39.:53:42.

has the pace to stick with Hawkridge. The half-time whistle

:53:43.:53:48.

beats Lincoln's efforts to set up another chance. Danny Cowley will be

:53:49.:53:53.

pleased with the first of effort. Mick McCarthy will have a few harsh

:53:54.:53:59.

words. But his team have kept the non-league side at bay. A quaint old

:54:00.:54:07.

football ground, Sincil Bank. 0-0. (STUDIO) 59 places between

:54:08.:54:15.

these sides. A non-league side and a championship macro side. They are in

:54:16.:54:19.

the middle of the Championship and they would like to be doing better

:54:20.:54:22.

tonight. Lincoln have got their measure. They have bossed it.

:54:23.:54:27.

They've shown what they got a draw at Portman Road. It's mostly been

:54:28.:54:33.

played in the final third. They were very close to getting the opening

:54:34.:54:38.

goal. Trevor was requesting a heat map a moment ago because he wanted

:54:39.:54:42.

to make sure most of the play was down that end. I hoped we could lie

:54:43.:54:49.

on it because it is freezing! It looks like Lincoln have come out to

:54:50.:54:55.

do a job and they have harried Ipswich and throwing them off their

:54:56.:54:59.

side. There will be a heat map in the Ipswich dressing room because

:55:00.:55:03.

Mick McCarthy will be going ballistic. They started brightly but

:55:04.:55:07.

after that it's been all Lincoln. Lincoln deserve to be ahead. They've

:55:08.:55:12.

taken command of the game. Ipswich can't get forward. Matt Rhead, the

:55:13.:55:19.

big man, if ever a man had a target on him! He is the man they are

:55:20.:55:24.

focusing on. Ipswich are struggling with what to do with him. Those

:55:25.:55:30.

Championship players won't have come across a player of his size and

:55:31.:55:36.

skill with that size. He has a fantastic touch his awareness is

:55:37.:55:40.

great. That's an early taste of what he will give in this game, so

:55:41.:55:46.

committed. I've been impressed with how he gets his body in the way of

:55:47.:55:50.

the ball and protects the ball. He's in it for the team. He throws

:55:51.:55:55.

himself all over the place. He's not afraid to put his head in. A

:55:56.:56:00.

mismatch with the full-back. And again, winning the first ball.

:56:01.:56:05.

Ipswich have to stop the supply into him because if they don't Lincoln

:56:06.:56:10.

will score soon. Again, great touch for a big man. His linkup play is

:56:11.:56:16.

outstanding. Using his body, strength and weight. You would like

:56:17.:56:22.

to play a player against him. I would love to, he's my kind of

:56:23.:56:26.

player! None of the Ipswich players can get hold of him. Look at this

:56:27.:56:31.

cross. He peels away, his movement is very good. That's the sign of a

:56:32.:56:38.

great striker who knows what he's doing. He's got a lot of experience

:56:39.:56:48.

and he's a whisker away from that. You said Ipswich don't know what to

:56:49.:56:52.

do with him, Berra resorted to holding onto his shirt. In the

:56:53.:56:56.

Premier League, he would be looking for a penalty. I think he would. You

:56:57.:57:01.

have to give him some of his own medicine. You have to show your the

:57:02.:57:05.

dominant man. It's a big test of character. I don't think he'll be

:57:06.:57:13.

happy his belly was out! I think he's old score. He's a man's man.

:57:14.:57:20.

I've seen him train. He trains really hard. He's just a bigger man

:57:21.:57:26.

and he's putting himself about. The chances didn't just come from him.

:57:27.:57:31.

We would struggle to show you a hatful of chances for Ipswich, but

:57:32.:57:35.

we will show you a few for Lincoln city. Woodyard here. Sorry, Theo

:57:36.:57:42.

Robinson first. It's a great block by Paul Digby. Rhead flicks it on

:57:43.:57:49.

and there's a great block. Fantastic block. Paul Digby getting across,

:57:50.:57:54.

knows there is danger. Robinson turns his Manuel and it's a great

:57:55.:57:58.

block. You said you would have gone through the player! I would have

:57:59.:58:03.

gone through the man. Woodyard with the best chance. They haven't

:58:04.:58:08.

stopped the crosses in the first half. Double figures of crosses.

:58:09.:58:13.

Space and time to pick his man and it just catches his shoulder. Then

:58:14.:58:21.

the captain, just before the end of the half, with one of those moments

:58:22.:58:25.

where we thought we were coming in to talk about a famous Lincoln lead.

:58:26.:58:31.

What a save that is by the stand in goalkeeper. A brilliant save. The

:58:32.:58:39.

referee missed it. Great hand. There's been one corner in the game

:58:40.:58:44.

and the reason is because Lincoln are finding a lot of ease. A very

:58:45.:58:49.

composed Lincoln dressing room. Danny Cowley giving them

:58:50.:58:53.

instructions for the second half. Presumably more of the same. Yeah.

:58:54.:59:02.

They are having chances. He will be saying one thing. Don't rue those

:59:03.:59:06.

missed chances, let's get the ball in the net. One goal could win it.

:59:07.:59:12.

It was the early Lincoln pressure that you were impressed by because

:59:13.:59:16.

it threw Ipswich off their stride. They are executing their game plan.

:59:17.:59:22.

High pressure. They are not going into silly challenges. One of the

:59:23.:59:26.

players is going in and the team goes in behind and they are making

:59:27.:59:29.

clever decisions. They are standing their ground. Ipswich are struggling

:59:30.:59:37.

to get out of the final third. It's not going half-hearted, it is going

:59:38.:59:41.

to win the ball back and they are forcing Ipswich into mistakes.

:59:42.:59:45.

Ipswich, 59 places above them, should be able to deal with this

:59:46.:59:48.

pressure and they are not doing so well. They all know their jobs, they

:59:49.:59:55.

know what they have to do. The pressure comes from the front men,

:59:56.:00:01.

not just the back four. They defend from the front. Ipswich gets the

:00:02.:00:05.

ball here and the centre-half comes across. When you are told that is

:00:06.:00:10.

your man, they are doing it very well. I wish we had a camera in the

:00:11.:00:14.

Ipswich dressing room! It wouldn't be very quiet. At the beginning of

:00:15.:00:22.

the match, Tom Lawrence, if any chances fell to its rich, they were

:00:23.:00:28.

going to him. Then Waterfall had a captain 's tackle, shall we say. A

:00:29.:00:37.

reducer! Doesn't quite get hold of it. A good warning for Lincoln not

:00:38.:00:46.

to give the ball away, especially to this man. They then got more

:00:47.:00:50.

physical with him and Waterfall gave him a message. Watershed, not

:00:51.:00:58.

Waterfall! I would be happy with that one. He looked very bright

:00:59.:01:01.

until then, he was the main threat for Ipswich. If he's not at the top

:01:02.:01:07.

of his game, Ipswich will struggle to penetrate. He looked

:01:08.:01:11.

uncomfortable, has it throwing him off his stride? I think he would be

:01:12.:01:16.

uncomfortable after that challenge! I think he's frustrated more than

:01:17.:01:20.

anything. The more the first half has gone on, the few scraps he's had

:01:21.:01:27.

to feed off. But he still carries a threat and I'm still optimistic. Not

:01:28.:01:32.

as optimistic now as I was at the start, but you can never tell with

:01:33.:01:35.

Tom Lawrence. Something out of nothing. There's one more non-league

:01:36.:01:43.

side left in the Emirates FA Cup and that's Sutton. They travelled the

:01:44.:01:47.

five miles to archrivals AFC Wimbledon. Let's get highlights.

:01:48.:02:00.

It is Nick Tompkins into the path of Matt Tubbs who continues his run and

:02:01.:02:09.

watches as a shot is driven in and out comes the goalkeeper to make the

:02:10.:02:13.

save. It is a big chance. Tumbling into the penalty area. Dean Parrott

:02:14.:02:21.

has a free kick 15 yards inside the half. Considerable depth and a clear

:02:22.:02:26.

unmarked header from Tom Elliott establishes a lead for AFC

:02:27.:02:31.

Wimbledon. Matt Tubbs is onto it here. Matt Tubbs was threatening to

:02:32.:02:38.

get through. Was there another covering defender? What colour will

:02:39.:02:47.

the card be? Wimbledon lead 1-0. So, Wimbledon down to ten men, they

:02:48.:02:51.

are into the second half now. Four other replays in The Emirates FA

:02:52.:02:57.

Cup. You can see the goals from those matches on the BBC website

:02:58.:03:01.

later on. Burnley continuing their fantastic run at home at the moment.

:03:02.:03:06.

Let's get more opinion on this one and Damian Johnson is with Chris

:03:07.:03:08.

Sutton who had a spell in charge here somewhere down the touchline.

:03:09.:03:14.

Look at that, the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral which lights up in the

:03:15.:03:17.

distance here. It was once the tallest building in the world in the

:03:18.:03:20.

16th century, did you know that, Damian?

:03:21.:03:24.

I didn't, I learn something every day from you. Chris Sutton is here,

:03:25.:03:27.

one-time Lincoln manager, what do you make of your old club, they are

:03:28.:03:31.

bossing this, aren't they? Absolutely, they should be in front,

:03:32.:03:34.

Ipswich are the championship side, you wouldn't know which was the

:03:35.:03:39.

Championship side, Lincoln have been brilliant, organised by their

:03:40.:03:41.

decision-making has been better but you wonder if they will rue the

:03:42.:03:44.

chances they have missed but from Ipswich's Ponta view, can they play

:03:45.:03:48.

any worse in the second-half? I don't think can but it is the

:03:49.:03:56.

taking. What do you think will be happening in the dressing room? I

:03:57.:04:00.

can't repeat what Mick McCarthy will be saying. They have looked

:04:01.:04:05.

disjointed going forward. At the back they look clueless, they have

:04:06.:04:08.

no rhythm to their place but you have to give Lincoln credit because

:04:09.:04:11.

they are organised, they are pressing, they are brave, winning

:04:12.:04:14.

the ball back in midfield, and you just feel if they get another chance

:04:15.:04:19.

Lincoln have to take it. We shall see, thank you, Chris. Back to you.

:04:20.:04:24.

Thank you, Damian and Chris, as ever, holding his opinions back,

:04:25.:04:28.

Chris. They are not there. Cowley Brothers, Nicky, assistant to his

:04:29.:04:32.

brother Danny, giving his half of the team talk and it looks very

:04:33.:04:37.

composed, doesn't it? And very calm. I imagine it's the complete opposite

:04:38.:04:41.

in the Ipswich Town dressing room. We have loads of great FA Cup action

:04:42.:04:45.

coming your way over the next few weeks, not least a live match and a

:04:46.:04:50.

great rivalry, the champions Leicester ticking on their East

:04:51.:04:54.

Midlands rivals Derby and the last time they win the final was in 1969

:04:55.:04:58.

when a 19-year-old goalkeeper played and went on to have a pretty decent

:04:59.:05:03.

career. I supported them from the age of

:05:04.:05:08.

ten. I trained at the ground Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Leicester was

:05:09.:05:11.

the only club I wanted to play full. One of the most promising, not the

:05:12.:05:16.

most promising goalkeeper in the country, 18-year-old Peter Shilton.

:05:17.:05:19.

It was a dream come true for me, I'd always wanted to get the FA Cup

:05:20.:05:22.

final, Leicester had been there three times before and not won and

:05:23.:05:27.

it was a magical opportunity. Cup fever ran high as Leicester and

:05:28.:05:34.

Manchester City make their appearance for the match that would

:05:35.:05:37.

decide who would capture the glory and the FA Cup. When you came out of

:05:38.:05:43.

the tunnel the Rohit you. I've played at Wembley a few times before

:05:44.:05:47.

that but it was still a magical moment. Peter Shilton, who has been

:05:48.:05:53.

here before. I was obviously focused more and keyed up because you want

:05:54.:05:57.

to be at your best. A real ambition of mine to win the FA Cup. I was

:05:58.:06:02.

determined to do everything I could to try and make that happen. In from

:06:03.:06:07.

the wing came the danger threat and again Shilton made a great save. It

:06:08.:06:12.

was a game of very few chances, to be fair. The pitch wasn't brilliant.

:06:13.:06:22.

It's Wembley. We wouldn't expect the pitch to play horrible. They have

:06:23.:06:25.

had a horse of the year showed not long before. I thought we had the

:06:26.:06:29.

better of the chances and didn't take them and ended up falling to a

:06:30.:06:35.

goal from Neil Young. Back to Young. The goal is scored by Young. You

:06:36.:06:42.

just prayed that we got an equaliser and we would still stay in the game.

:06:43.:06:49.

Will you bring on as substitute? Not at the moment. Unfortunately we

:06:50.:06:52.

missed a few chances and Leicester ended up being in the FA Cup final

:06:53.:06:55.

at Wembley for the fourth time and not winning. A great performance.

:06:56.:07:03.

They have played wonderfully but Leicester City have been such

:07:04.:07:07.

tremendous opposition. It was a bit of a regret because it was the only

:07:08.:07:10.

trophy I never won and I just remembered I was so disappointed I

:07:11.:07:16.

hardly spoke to anybody all night. I was a bit off with everybody. I was

:07:17.:07:20.

just totally gutted and it wasn't until I got back in Leicester and

:07:21.:07:25.

saw the fans and how proud they were of us that I came out of myself and

:07:26.:07:29.

realised we had achieved something even though we'd lost. It was a

:07:30.:07:33.

performance of which all Leicester can be proud.

:07:34.:07:37.

So, derby against Premier League champions Leicester live on BBC One

:07:38.:07:41.

on Friday 27th and before that you can watch the goals from tomorrow

:07:42.:07:50.

night's FA Cup replays. And I will be back with the Premier League show

:07:51.:07:55.

on Thursday at 7:30pm, earlier than usual, this week on BBC Two. Amazing

:07:56.:08:00.

to think that your old England team-mate Peter Shilton wouldn't

:08:01.:08:03.

play in another FA Cup final after that. You'd think at 19 starting

:08:04.:08:07.

your career that it would happen for you quite a few times. Almost the

:08:08.:08:13.

World Cup in 1970 as well, so he is an old pro, but what a player, and a

:08:14.:08:18.

real legend. Surprising he didn't get to play another one but you

:08:19.:08:22.

didn't play one at all. I lost in the semifinal, so near but yet so

:08:23.:08:26.

far from the Trophy. Sorry to remind you of that. Trevor... Don't remind

:08:27.:08:34.

me! It is good to see the FA Cup cap making another airing. And the FA

:08:35.:08:40.

Cup years! There they are. It is freezing cold at Sincil Bank but the

:08:41.:08:45.

fans have that sense of expectation. What is lovely as well is you see

:08:46.:08:48.

players and coaching staff coming out and making eye contact with

:08:49.:08:51.

people in the crowd because you get the impression that what the Cowley

:08:52.:08:54.

brothers have done is bring the Town together through the football club

:08:55.:08:59.

and that has been so important engaging the community. Yes, looking

:09:00.:09:01.

at the fans that have turned out, it is a sell-out, he has really

:09:02.:09:06.

integrated the football family of Lincoln City into the football club

:09:07.:09:12.

and so far so good this season in the league, let's hope they can get

:09:13.:09:15.

through in the cup. The captain leading the players and touching the

:09:16.:09:17.

hands of the fans at the start of the second half. They have a game

:09:18.:09:20.

plan, they will stick to it because in the first half it was almost

:09:21.:09:23.

successful. Wahab Ipswich got in return? We can rejoin your

:09:24.:09:28.

commentary team of Jonathan Pearce and Jermaine Jenas.

:09:29.:09:32.

COMMENTATOR: You mentioned the cathedral, it is 0-0 but it pays to

:09:33.:09:37.

be patient, started in the 1185, took 200 years to build that

:09:38.:09:42.

splendour. We have 45 minutes to go and then maybe another half an hour

:09:43.:09:47.

so we have plenty of time to sort things out, Jermaine Jenas. I can't

:09:48.:09:51.

think there are any changes, cannot see any changes for the two teams.

:09:52.:09:56.

What do Ipswich need to do to change the game around quiz act I think

:09:57.:09:59.

they need to change the mentality, their approach to the game. Find

:10:00.:10:04.

some belief in themselves and their approach, get themselves half an

:10:05.:10:09.

opportunity. The only one I can think of is Lawrence with the run

:10:10.:10:14.

and the strike on goal. From Ipswich's point of view by Mick

:10:15.:10:17.

McCarthy has hopefully set a few choice words to get them going and

:10:18.:10:21.

make a game of it. Lincoln will want more of the same, they have been

:10:22.:10:26.

brilliant. Danny Cowley is saluting the fans. He will be asking for the

:10:27.:10:30.

exact amount of support they got in the first half and trying to get the

:10:31.:10:35.

goal they deserve. Home-made cups in the stands. Great to see. Don't tell

:10:36.:10:41.

any Lincoln City fan tonight that the FA Cup has lost its lustre.

:10:42.:10:45.

Danny Cowley, three promotions, three cups, took Braintree to the

:10:46.:10:51.

National League semifinal. Here he is doing a terrific job in Lincoln

:10:52.:10:56.

against the longest serving Championship manager Mick McCarthy

:10:57.:10:59.

denied that his Ipswich team were second best in the first half. And

:11:00.:11:08.

away it goes from Knudsen. Just a reminder of the teams. Lincoln

:11:09.:11:20.

unchanged from the first game. They have that Matt Rhead threat Andy

:11:21.:11:25.

Robinson pace up front. And away by Emmanuel. Towards Leon Best who has

:11:26.:11:31.

been very quiet. Laurens pressurising there. Of course, as we

:11:32.:11:37.

talked about beforehand, he is their main threat. There is an interesting

:11:38.:11:48.

character flown in from South Africa, director and a man who has

:11:49.:11:54.

injected ?300,000 into Lincoln City, and reportedly over 1 million over

:11:55.:11:58.

the next four years, come all the way to watch this. Looks like he's

:11:59.:12:06.

feeling the cold. He left the sunshine behind him, that is for

:12:07.:12:15.

certain. It is a raw old night. Free kick for the file by Jonas Knudsen.

:12:16.:12:19.

He looks a bit bemused. Clever play from Arnold, he saw Knudsen was

:12:20.:12:24.

coming in to him and mix it around him and it is blatant obstruction,

:12:25.:12:27.

another opportunity to put a delivery into the box. We talked

:12:28.:12:34.

about Rhead but I think Arnold could be the key for Mansfield, former

:12:35.:12:36.

Cambridge and Grimsby player. That could have been a dummy.

:12:37.:12:49.

Floated high towards Waterfall at the back. I think it was a false

:12:50.:12:57.

mistake on the far side, dummy to give across in. Yes, you chuck those

:12:58.:13:05.

in just in case the defence like to play the offside trap. It was more

:13:06.:13:08.

about the delivery to the back post. When he gets his head on it it's all

:13:09.:13:12.

about the second ball and Robinson wasn't able to get the body towards

:13:13.:13:18.

the goal. Here it comes, all the way through. Out of play for a goal

:13:19.:13:27.

kick. Racket was up from the back. The crowd will be the extra man for

:13:28.:13:32.

Lincoln City tonight. Extra little girl there. -- Raggett. That hat is

:13:33.:13:42.

a little bit low, don't know if she can see the game.

:13:43.:13:48.

Good catch. Hasty throw and Rhead has limped back and the referee has

:13:49.:14:00.

already reached for his pocket and he could be in trouble here. It's a

:14:01.:14:02.

yellow in his hand. Rhead went up in the air and drew

:14:03.:14:13.

his arm back in the challenge. It is a yellow. My initial thoughts were

:14:14.:14:17.

he did lead with his arm. There is a difference between leading with your

:14:18.:14:21.

arms to challenge and actually throwing your elbow into somebody.

:14:22.:14:24.

He is a physical presence up there and error has had to be on the

:14:25.:14:29.

receiving end a few times. Arnold is having a quiet word with him.

:14:30.:14:33.

Berra's eyes on the ball, leads with his arm and catches him. It's a

:14:34.:14:37.

yellow card. It is not a nice one for error to take but there is no

:14:38.:14:41.

maliciousness in that from Rhead at all.

:14:42.:14:46.

Front two for Lincoln share 18 goals. Leon Best is yet to score a

:14:47.:15:00.

goal this season. Lawrence has seven. They are missing a

:15:01.:15:06.

goal-scoring threat, out on the treatment table, as we mentioned.

:15:07.:15:13.

Kieffer Moore from Forest Green impressed Mick McCarthy when playing

:15:14.:15:18.

for Yeovil against Ipswich the other year. Signed yesterday. And Jordan

:15:19.:15:24.

Spence, who was a free agent, former West Ham player, who has come in as

:15:25.:15:28.

well. Ineligible for today, of course. That is a lovely bit of

:15:29.:15:33.

hold-up play by Rhead. Habergham. Hawkridge. Switches it away to

:15:34.:15:43.

Arnold. Lawrence doing the work. Waterfall. Straight back over the

:15:44.:15:49.

top looking for Robinson. Sensibly done. Arnold on the outside of

:15:50.:16:00.

Lawrence. He did enough. He didn't really want the ball played back to

:16:01.:16:02.

him and he got an absolute cruncher from Bradley Wood.

:16:03.:16:15.

He certainly knew he'd been challenged by Bradley Wood. Not the

:16:16.:16:24.

first tough challenge he's received from Bradley Wood tonight. It's a

:16:25.:16:29.

late one. Completely mistimed and goes over the ball and into

:16:30.:16:35.

Lawrence. Already Lawrence is having to do the majority of his work deep

:16:36.:16:40.

in his own half and he doesn't want to be there, he wants to be at the

:16:41.:16:44.

top end trying to create. They don't seem to be able to get any service

:16:45.:16:49.

to do their forward line so you can understand why he's dropping deep.

:16:50.:16:54.

You can understand why they are getting agitated, wanting more

:16:55.:17:03.

protection for Lawrence. Sent off against Sutton, had four red cards

:17:04.:17:09.

in his Lincoln career of 74 games. Important challenge to win by

:17:10.:17:15.

Douglas. Straight back at the defence. No one holding the ball up

:17:16.:17:23.

four Ipswich Town. Offside flag. The problem is it's not coming forward

:17:24.:17:28.

for Ipswich with any quality. It's not like somebody is trying to get

:17:29.:17:32.

their head up and find Leon Best, getting it into his feet or in the

:17:33.:17:36.

channel, they are not even looking, they are just hooking it clear.

:17:37.:17:41.

There's nothing really Best or Lawrence can do. Quickly on by hawk

:17:42.:17:51.

rich. They do like to move the ball quickly. Ipswich have experience out

:17:52.:17:59.

there. Hawkridge... They should have done better. It was a simple pass

:18:00.:18:08.

and Rhead was in on goal. They have the extra experience, Ipswich, at

:18:09.:18:12.

the higher level. If they can get a chance to break hearts, they will.

:18:13.:18:16.

You just can't see it happening at moment.

:18:17.:18:23.

Robinson is caught by the flag. Terry Connor, long-time first

:18:24.:18:37.

Lieutenant for Mick McCarthy. Options on the bench limited. Kevin

:18:38.:18:41.

Bru played in the first game. Freddie Sears. Andre Dozzell,

:18:42.:18:50.

Jason's son. Ben Morris is a 17-year-old centre forward. Pat

:18:51.:18:55.

Webber, 17 years old. Adam McDonnell, another teenager. I know

:18:56.:19:02.

Mick McCarthy has several big bids on the table for potential signings.

:19:03.:19:11.

We've seen very little of Best. The challenge came in from Bradley Wood

:19:12.:19:14.

to deny Knudson. The long throw of the danger is a

:19:15.:19:32.

weapon. -- the Dane. A couple of substitute appearances for his

:19:33.:19:38.

country, Jonas Knudsen. A good long throw, the keeper has to come and

:19:39.:19:43.

claim and does. Disappointingly for Ipswich, no challenge on the

:19:44.:19:45.

goalkeeper. Brighton await the winners in the

:19:46.:19:53.

fourth round. It's a massive kick! Unbelievable!

:19:54.:20:12.

Looks like he didn't even try. He just launched it. Launched it into

:20:13.:20:15.

the other box. I think the ball hit him in the

:20:16.:20:58.

face. As it was getting crossed into the box.

:20:59.:21:12.

Wasn't really full in the face, more on the shoulder than anything.

:21:13.:21:27.

Looks as if he may well have bitten his cheek or something like that

:21:28.:21:34.

with the impact. There is certainly blood, you would think. He's got a

:21:35.:21:42.

bit of a problem, Knudson. The option they have at left back is

:21:43.:22:05.

young Pat Webber, a young scholar. Signed from Worthing. He's the son

:22:06.:22:10.

of Dave Webber, who was at Millwall when Mick McCarthy there.

:22:11.:22:18.

Difficult tie four Ipswich Town again.

:22:19.:22:48.

Waterfall under pressure but got it away.

:22:49.:22:58.

A new shirt. I don't think he's got a number on the back of that shirt.

:22:59.:23:14.

Best is in the middle. Berra came along way to make contact.

:23:15.:23:22.

Emmanuel got the shot away. It must have zipped off the turf. It came

:23:23.:23:29.

back into the danger area. A good effort from the full-back. It really

:23:30.:23:34.

was, he worked it well onto his right foot and got the shot away as

:23:35.:23:40.

soon as is. The keeper does well. There could easily have been a

:23:41.:23:44.

deflection. Parries it into a dangerous area. 57 minutes gone and

:23:45.:23:50.

Ipswich Town get their first corner kick of the game. Played short. Out

:23:51.:23:54.

by Waterfall. Decent night for the Lincoln City

:23:55.:24:10.

goalkeeper. Attempting an 11th clean sheet this season. Hasn't kept one

:24:11.:24:16.

in his last six games. Ipswich very rarely keep clean sheets. Header out

:24:17.:24:27.

by Waterfall. Hawkridge gave the full-back a lot of work to do.

:24:28.:24:36.

Habergham did well. Emmanuel was rejected by West Ham when he was 14.

:24:37.:24:42.

It was a good effort. The first thing Ipswich have offered. Comes in

:24:43.:24:49.

at pace, the keeper gets it away into a dangerous area, but

:24:50.:24:54.

thankfully for him and his defenders get it clear. Played the last couple

:24:55.:25:02.

of games, Josh Emmanuel. Free kick conceded here.

:25:03.:25:11.

First goal in any game is always important, but in a match like this,

:25:12.:25:19.

it could have such a vital bearing for Mick McCarthy and Ipswich.

:25:20.:25:26.

Approaching the hour, the first goal is huge. Mick McCarthy is asking

:25:27.:25:30.

them to get as high as possible. Leave space for the goalkeeper to

:25:31.:25:37.

collect it. Arnold with a free kick. Good goalkeeping in the end. He was

:25:38.:25:47.

clattered. It was good goalkeeping. Ipswich dropped very early and

:25:48.:25:51.

caused their own problems. Mick McCarthy would want them to hold the

:25:52.:26:01.

line longer. Certainly a foul. Definitely an infringement. Reached

:26:02.:26:10.

the fourth round in 2006. Colchester beating Derby, but he didn't play in

:26:11.:26:12.

the next round. Lawrence felt he was fouled. West

:26:13.:26:31.

macro, rather. He had a case as well. -- Best, rather. The referee

:26:32.:26:37.

keeping his whistle silent. He's allowed a fair degree of physicality

:26:38.:26:42.

there, which is nice to see. He's allowed the game to flow. There's

:26:43.:26:46.

been some tackles flying in, but he's dealt with it. Leon Best having

:26:47.:26:53.

to deal with getting pulled down. That's been part and parcel of this

:26:54.:26:59.

FA Cup tie. The challenges have been flying in, the players have been

:27:00.:27:02.

fine and the referee has allowed it to flow. Robinson to pressurise

:27:03.:27:07.

Berra. Big night at Sincil Bank, but will

:27:08.:27:31.

Robinson have his night? He's got the pace to get away. Good covering

:27:32.:27:39.

in the end, though. Emmanuel fouled Hawkridge. The home fans unhappy

:27:40.:27:45.

with that. Habergham with the free kick. Went

:27:46.:28:04.

to Everton with Tamworth in their adventure in the cup in 2012. Got

:28:05.:28:07.

beaten that day. The cross was deflected. Power tried

:28:08.:28:20.

to get it back in the box. Woodyard was in there. A strong challenge on

:28:21.:28:28.

Lawrence, this time fair. Arnold with the shot. Berra with the block.

:28:29.:28:41.

Ipswich, backs against the walls. Trying to get a little bit of

:28:42.:28:47.

revenge, Lawrence. A good cross. Chambers got it away for Ipswich.

:28:48.:28:55.

Under duress. Those two incidents is why it's which aren't getting

:28:56.:28:58.

anything out of this game. Not prepared to put their foot in and

:28:59.:29:07.

win the challenges. Out by Skuse. Back in by Arnold.

:29:08.:29:18.

Not enough for a foul. He was certainly playing for it against

:29:19.:29:28.

Habergham. That might have been a free kick. Over the top of Lawrence.

:29:29.:29:38.

In goes Douglas. The referee will pull it back and produce a card for

:29:39.:29:41.

Douglas. It was a foul, but I still think he

:29:42.:29:54.

could have played on. Hawkridge was in a good spot. He wins the tackle

:29:55.:30:02.

very well in midfield, Woodyard. This one is late. Takes him out on

:30:03.:30:10.

the ankle. Rightly gets a yellow card, Douglas. Habergham's free

:30:11.:30:23.

kick. Douglas pressure rising and then a foul.

:30:24.:30:48.

Best couldn't get above racquet. -- Raggett. Grant Ward on the outside.

:30:49.:31:00.

Good defending by Power. Not a good clearance by Lincoln City.

:31:01.:31:09.

-- Christophe Berra. Emmanuel's cross. Free kick. Offside against

:31:10.:31:37.

Best as he came to win the ball. Skuse already in an offside

:31:38.:31:42.

position. Great spot by the linesman because he went into the offside

:31:43.:31:47.

position very late. The keeper is down at the minute. Farman is down

:31:48.:31:50.

here. A calf problem, perhaps. He does

:31:51.:32:05.

give it some welly when he clears it away. Their substitute goalkeeper is

:32:06.:32:09.

the goalkeeping coach Jimmy Walker. Notts County, Walsall, West Ham,

:32:10.:32:14.

Colchester, Tottenham fans, he was their late on, I don't think he

:32:15.:32:17.

played. He was there when I was there. He is 42. He has been around

:32:18.:32:25.

a while, he was a joke, bags of experience in the dressing room, and

:32:26.:32:29.

he might find himself back out there at 42. That would be some story. I

:32:30.:32:39.

think this man will Carayol. -- this man will carry on. Zipped up at

:32:40.:32:45.

Sincil Bank tonight. Skiing tomorrow. That's the life. He has

:32:46.:32:48.

borrowed that one from you. Where do you stand on the romance of

:32:49.:33:13.

the FA Cup right now? Well, I mean it's clearly up there. I think there

:33:14.:33:18.

is a divide now that you don't see as many shocks as you used to see.

:33:19.:33:23.

The love for the FA Cup and that passion that a lot of these lower

:33:24.:33:30.

league clubs show is so important to them and their survival, for a lot

:33:31.:33:36.

of them. I think what irks a lot of football fans is to hear manager say

:33:37.:33:40.

I love the FA Cup, I grew up with it and I love it but I'm only picking

:33:41.:33:44.

one of my regular first team today. I thought there has been a few

:33:45.:33:49.

surprises in the early stages of the FA Cup from some big clubs not

:33:50.:33:53.

playing their full strength squads, especially teams that are not really

:33:54.:33:56.

playing in Europe and doing well in the Premier League as well. It might

:33:57.:34:00.

be something that we have to look at. Offside against Lawrence.

:34:01.:34:07.

The game just needs to be opened up a bit. There has been a few

:34:08.:34:15.

stoppages in the second half which have slowed the game down and that

:34:16.:34:20.

only helps Ipswich. Lincoln need to build at the moment again and keep

:34:21.:34:23.

putting them under pressure like they did in the first other and try

:34:24.:34:27.

and create an opportunity. They have not really created one yet in the

:34:28.:34:31.

second half. I don't think it is going to be a question of the

:34:32.:34:34.

Championship team being a fitter team because we know how hard the

:34:35.:34:40.

Lincoln players train. Is what I expected in the first game, I

:34:41.:34:44.

expected Lincoln to drop off from a fitness point of view but they kept

:34:45.:34:49.

pushing on. Here is the long throw in from Wood, the header by

:34:50.:34:57.

Chambers. Wood again. Here is Power. The Dubliner. Towards Woodyard.

:34:58.:35:01.

Power again. Power didn't make it early in his

:35:02.:35:21.

career. He was at and Nottingham Forest and had one game there. Comes

:35:22.:35:26.

back out for a fine effort by Hawkridge. Gathered at the second

:35:27.:35:34.

time asking by the Ipswich keeper Gerken. This was one for the

:35:35.:35:38.

cameras, from Gerken, doesn't catch it as cleanly as he wanted to,

:35:39.:35:44.

Hawkridge. It was always going wide. But Gerken obviously felt the need

:35:45.:35:48.

to scurry across and get his hands to it. He's been around too. Terry

:35:49.:36:00.

Hawkridge. The first win against football league opposition since

:36:01.:36:11.

2012-13. 20 minutes ago. Habergham. Nudge on Hawkridge, perhaps? He's

:36:12.:36:17.

there with him hanging on for dear life. Woodyard. The England C

:36:18.:36:25.

Captain. Looking for a Rhead, wouldn't come down, Robinson. You

:36:26.:36:29.

sense that Lincoln are going up through the gears again. You can see

:36:30.:36:33.

the appetite from Bradley Wood in every challenge. Very much a front

:36:34.:36:37.

foot defender. Skuse has a poor touch and plays for

:36:38.:37:02.

a foul and didn't get it. It was a poor touch but he was put under a

:37:03.:37:05.

lot of pressure again by Alex Woodyard himself. And Power in

:37:06.:37:11.

midfield. They get through a lot of work for this Lincoln side.

:37:12.:37:15.

Unselfish work. Themselves about, collect a lot of second balls. The

:37:16.:37:21.

heartbeat of this side. They are both having good games. Ipswich fans

:37:22.:37:26.

look a bit concerned. Christophe Berra with the header.

:37:27.:37:37.

Ipswich are 14th in the Championship, ten points above the

:37:38.:37:43.

bottom three. It is a division that can change quickly with two or three

:37:44.:37:45.

wins. Their budget certainly is nowhere

:37:46.:37:53.

near some of the teams up there at the top end of the table.

:37:54.:38:09.

On the Ipswich bench. Freddie Sears looks like he will come on. Freddie

:38:10.:38:24.

Sears, former West Ham man, after a startling debut he came on and

:38:25.:38:27.

scored after five minutes. It never quite happened for him. He scored

:38:28.:38:31.

against Burnley in the fifth round of the cup in 2011. He is going to

:38:32.:38:36.

come on. He has a couple of goals this season, he is a hard worker.

:38:37.:38:49.

The other substitute is Andre Dozzell. He had a startling impact

:38:50.:38:59.

when he made his debut and he scored last season. Ipswich are on the

:39:00.:39:05.

attack now. Here is Best who could have looked across and seen Freddie

:39:06.:39:08.

Sears warming up. It hasn't been this game at all, Leon Best. It

:39:09.:39:14.

hasn't but I wouldn't say any of the Ipswich players have played all that

:39:15.:39:19.

well. He had an opportunity to find his strike partner. Lawrence was

:39:20.:39:23.

probably in a better position than him. When you don't get that many

:39:24.:39:27.

opportunities, I suppose you try and take them when they come. Hawkridge.

:39:28.:39:40.

WHISTLE Here come the two substitutes. Sears

:39:41.:39:50.

to the right command Leon Best will be hooked. Missed the last couple of

:39:51.:40:01.

games ill. Hasn't looked at his sharpest since that big-money move.

:40:02.:40:08.

?3 million, it was, to Blackburn. July 2012. 11 goals in 95 games.

:40:09.:40:17.

Here comes Freddie Sears. Hardly prolific in 2016 himself, went ten

:40:18.:40:22.

months without a goal. His last goal was against Rotherham in October.

:40:23.:40:26.

This is a youngster a lot of clubs are having a look at. Often goes

:40:27.:40:32.

Ward and on comes Andre Dozzell. He is 17. He scored on his debut last

:40:33.:40:39.

season. Just like his dad had done all those years before. 16 years and

:40:40.:40:46.

350 days when he scored against Sheffield Wednesday. The youngest

:40:47.:40:53.

top-flight scorer. This is half a chance for Arnold. A

:40:54.:41:03.

lot of it centring around a long ball to Rhead. The composure from

:41:04.:41:09.

Arnold, he does not slash at it, takes a touch and gets it onto his

:41:10.:41:13.

left hand side. He was trying to bend it into the far left hand

:41:14.:41:20.

corner and just overhit it. He shaped to hit it well but didn't

:41:21.:41:22.

quite wrap his foot around the ball. Only one Graham Taylor. The lights

:41:23.:41:46.

go on. Just after 70 minutes. Graham, in his 70s, taken too early.

:41:47.:41:56.

Remember when he was England manager, even though he got fearful

:41:57.:42:00.

stick at the time, he always took time to talk to you about the game

:42:01.:42:04.

of football. Wherever you were in the world. I was privileged to have

:42:05.:42:11.

worked closely with him in those days. He was a very good man. A very

:42:12.:42:23.

good man. 76, of course, would have been the year he was here.

:42:24.:42:32.

76 when they won the fourth division title with 74 points, which was then

:42:33.:42:41.

a record. Two points for a win in those days. Would have been right?

:42:42.:42:53.

It was a record. Here comes Rhead! Now Woodyard. He wrapped his foot

:42:54.:43:02.

around that one. Robinson gets the touch after the clearance.

:43:03.:43:12.

Have they got enough quality in the final third. From the word go they

:43:13.:43:20.

have looked the team most likely to win this tie. Arnold. Good block by

:43:21.:43:27.

Christophe Berra, who has put in a decent shift at the back for

:43:28.:43:34.

Ipswich. Hawkridge. I suppose that is their only worry really. You get

:43:35.:43:40.

the feeling that although Ipswich haven't played well at all, if

:43:41.:43:44.

somebody like Lawrence gets half a chance he will stick it in the back

:43:45.:43:51.

of the net. He has worked hard for the best part of 78 minutes. They

:43:52.:43:57.

seem to have dropped the tempo and are struggling to create the chances

:43:58.:44:01.

they did in the first half. Adam Marriott waiting to come on for

:44:02.:44:02.

Lincoln. Emmanuel. A little bit rushed. At least he

:44:03.:44:19.

tried to open things up. It was a misplaced pass, but in fairness to

:44:20.:44:25.

him I don't think there is any need for Knudsen to be that narrow, he

:44:26.:44:28.

needs to be on the touchline creating more space. He is a

:44:29.:44:32.

wingback. He needs to go wide and get up-and-down the left hand side

:44:33.:44:34.

creating opportunities. Those supporters have replicas of

:44:35.:44:47.

the FA Cup. They thought Theo Robinson was going to be the game

:44:48.:44:52.

winner here but he is departing. Six goals in five FA Cup ties this

:44:53.:44:59.

season, not enough to keep him on. On comes Adam Marriott, who has only

:45:00.:45:03.

had a couple of starts since September. He's Court 4 goals this

:45:04.:45:08.

season, signed from Stevenage. He was a former Norwich and Cambridge

:45:09.:45:09.

United youngster. Rhead. That is a good chase.

:45:10.:45:35.

Goalkick given. Yes, it was the right decision. Christophe Berra

:45:36.:45:41.

does well. He stuck with his man. Tried to clear it just to get it out

:45:42.:45:46.

of play but managed to kick it against the attacker and out for a

:45:47.:45:50.

goal kick. At the start of that chase you wouldn't have backed him

:45:51.:45:54.

to win it against Nathan Arnold. As soon as the ball goes over the top I

:45:55.:45:58.

fancied Arnold to get the ball in over the top. He must have found

:45:59.:46:03.

some speed to keep up with him. Ten minutes to go until we go to --

:46:04.:46:06.

extra time. Chambers away. This is it, they are shouting. Good

:46:07.:46:27.

challenge by Woodyard. He's done that all game. On the front foot,

:46:28.:46:33.

winning tackles, getting his team up the pitch. Great encouragement from

:46:34.:46:38.

the Lincoln bench. If Bradley Wood can get this in there, can Rhead

:46:39.:46:41.

exploit a tiring Ipswich defence? Waterfall's cross was deflected

:46:42.:46:57.

away. He's home by Douglas. He is frustrated, you can understand

:46:58.:47:36.

his frustration as well, Lawrence. Two minutes ago on the edge of the

:47:37.:47:43.

box. Skuse had the ball and he just launched it. Blatant handball. The

:47:44.:47:48.

service to him tonight has been terrible. They've been robust with

:47:49.:47:51.

the way they've dealt with him. Straight down the throat of Dean

:47:52.:48:19.

Gerken. He's done well. He won't be in the league team at the weekend.

:48:20.:48:26.

Bartosz Bialkowski will come back. Mick McCarthy calls him the best

:48:27.:48:32.

goalkeeper in the Championship. One of their best players in recent

:48:33.:48:34.

weeks, along with Lawrence. They are still in the cup. Seven

:48:35.:48:55.

minutes to go. Will they be come the final whistle? Will they take it to

:48:56.:48:59.

extra time? Rhead crush and the header. Out by

:49:00.:49:18.

Chambers. At the minute it is nailed on for extra time because both

:49:19.:49:25.

sides... Ipswich haven't created anything all game. Lincoln have

:49:26.:49:32.

stepped off the Gas a little bit and slowed down. Maybe they've run out

:49:33.:49:37.

of a bit of energy. They need to get back to the way they were playing in

:49:38.:49:39.

the first half. Is this the moment the National

:49:40.:49:54.

League team knocks out the former FA Cup winners?

:49:55.:50:11.

Rhead plants the header forward, but Berra got it away. Cole Skuse.

:50:12.:50:27.

Pressurised immediately by Woodyard. Space for Josh Emmanuel. Just over

:50:28.:50:34.

five minutes left. Look at the man who made the

:50:35.:50:59.

challenge. Matt Rhead, the Centre forward back there.

:51:00.:51:07.

Really important for Ipswich to get that home tie with Brighton. Out by

:51:08.:51:22.

Hawkridge. It's a fine effort! Kept it really low, Knudson. I think it

:51:23.:51:31.

was well wide, but he did well to keep the shot low. A strange

:51:32.:51:36.

clearance from Hawkridge. Didn't get it where he wanted it. Knudson did

:51:37.:51:42.

well to get a firm contact on the strike, but always going away from

:51:43.:51:48.

goal. The fact we are talking about it tells you a lot about the way

:51:49.:51:52.

it's which are playing and what they've brought to the table this

:51:53.:51:57.

evening. They had one effort from Emmanuel which brought a save out of

:51:58.:51:58.

the keeper. What you will get with Freddie Sears

:51:59.:52:12.

is workrate. Hasn't scored enough goals in his career. 53 in nearly

:52:13.:52:15.

300 games now. Comfortable night for the Lincoln

:52:16.:52:33.

Centre backs. Have Ipswich timed it perfectly?

:52:34.:52:40.

He's forced the corner. The second corner of the night for Ipswich. Is

:52:41.:52:54.

this the moment they execute the perfect smash and grab raid in an FA

:52:55.:53:03.

Cup tricky tie? Lawrence with it. Up from the back is Digby. Attacking

:53:04.:53:09.

the six yard area. A good header by Bradley Wood. Shorter man by five

:53:10.:53:20.

inches. Not the greatest of passes by Digby.

:53:21.:53:35.

Over the two matches, the National League team have worked

:53:36.:53:38.

prodigiously. Easily read by Alan Power. The

:53:39.:53:56.

longest serving player here. This is his 222nd game.

:53:57.:54:27.

Half an hour of extra time looms, and then penalties. For Ipswich, no

:54:28.:54:34.

McGoldrick, no Pitman, who would take penalties. Both out injured.

:54:35.:54:39.

Woodyard trying to borrow his way through. Woodyard again. Well

:54:40.:54:46.

marshalled at the moment by Digby. Doesn't need to do anything, just

:54:47.:54:54.

jostle him and he did so. Emmanuel was too strong for Habergham.

:54:55.:55:13.

Well... A yellow card for Bradley Wood. Another foul on Lawrence. I

:55:14.:55:20.

think Ipswich will say Lawrence has not had enough protection. I mean,

:55:21.:55:26.

it's been a long time coming, that yellow card for Wood. He's put in

:55:27.:55:32.

some heavy challenge. Some good, but more bad. That's another one for the

:55:33.:55:36.

list. That was the situation Lawrence scored from in the first

:55:37.:55:42.

game, picking it up on the left, Justin up to the 18-yard box and

:55:43.:55:47.

sticking it in the net. Wood said not tonight. Four minutes of

:55:48.:55:54.

stoppage time to play. Here comes the substitute on the break.

:55:55.:56:01.

Arnold... Arnold! Lincoln City are through! In the dying seconds! They

:56:02.:56:12.

have knocked out in the 1978 FA Cup winners! What a night for the

:56:13.:56:21.

National League side! No time now, surely, for Ipswich.

:56:22.:56:27.

Beautiful break! . Deflated Dean Gerken shakes his head. Nathan

:56:28.:56:44.

Arnold's 11 goal of the season. It leaves Mick McCarthy nodding his

:56:45.:56:52.

head ruefully. He knows they deserve it. He knows they've been the better

:56:53.:56:57.

side. That came from their own free kick. A poor delivery from Lawrence.

:56:58.:57:03.

They are just not set up, it's which. Nobody is picking up Marriot.

:57:04.:57:08.

I wondered if he was offside, Arnold has timed it to perfection. It's not

:57:09.:57:13.

been his best game, Arnold, but when you want a player in that situation,

:57:14.:57:19.

with the composure, he was the man for the job. He takes it around

:57:20.:57:30.

Gerken with aplomb and sticks his side into the next round. Brilliant

:57:31.:57:33.

play from Marriot and the Pats is timed to perfection. Thoroughly

:57:34.:57:37.

deserved. Brilliant finish. So composed. Sheer delight on the

:57:38.:57:49.

bench. Look at that. Brilliant. They've been the better side.

:57:50.:58:01.

Pandemonium. And pathos. That goal pretty much summed up Ipswich's

:58:02.:58:05.

night. Disorganised, not knowing what they are about what they are

:58:06.:58:09.

doing. Getting caught out from their own set piece.

:58:10.:58:15.

Can Ipswich stage a hugely dramatic comeback? Moments left. The only

:58:16.:58:33.

person who went back, by the way, to stop the breakaway for Ipswich was

:58:34.:58:39.

Tom Lawrence. That was the odd thing. Rhead. Straight at the

:58:40.:58:47.

goalkeeper. Good challenge by Power. They want

:58:48.:59:09.

to get him off, actually. They were looking to make a substitution

:59:10.:59:13.

moments ago. Jamie McCombe is waiting to come on.

:59:14.:59:21.

Safe hands, Paul Farman. He will drop and hold. We have ten seconds

:59:22.:59:39.

of stoppage time remaining. It will come back to Rhead. He will

:59:40.:59:59.

hold it, surely. We've had the four minutes. If they keep it there, they

:00:00.:00:08.

are through. Jack Muldoon, just on as a substitute. Came on during the

:00:09.:00:17.

goal celebrations. Goal kick. Surely Ipswich don't have enough time.

:00:18.:00:25.

Here comes Jamie McCombe. Six and 34 years of age. Craggy, experienced.

:00:26.:00:47.

Centre-back to shore things up. Cruel taunts by the Lincoln fans to

:00:48.:00:54.

Mick McCarthy. Five minutes of stoppage time.

:00:55.:01:06.

CROWD: You're getting sacked in the morning! . A big hit and hope from

:01:07.:01:15.

Chambers. Launched long and... That's it! They've done it! Lincoln

:01:16.:01:23.

City have beaten a team 59 places above them in England's football

:01:24.:01:30.

period. -- pyramid. FA Cup legends in the 1970s, Ipswich, are out. The

:01:31.:01:35.

pressure will rise on Mick McCarthy, but it's all about Lincoln City,

:01:36.:01:39.

they deserve it. Nathan Arnold in stoppage time. The crowd come on and

:01:40.:01:48.

deservedly the victory is Lincoln's. By far the better team on the night.

:01:49.:01:52.

They were more organised, they knew how to play and they got what they

:01:53.:01:57.

deserved. Some standout performances from all of them. The manager set

:01:58.:02:03.

them up to perfection will stop people like Rhead, Arnold, Power,

:02:04.:02:08.

brilliant. Lincoln City have done it! Big shock.

:02:09.:02:15.

Incredible scenes here. Such a dramatic way for Lincoln City to

:02:16.:02:22.

make history. Since 1976 they haven't been in the fourth round of

:02:23.:02:27.

the FA Cup and they are in its now. Trevor Sinclair and Terry Butcher

:02:28.:02:30.

alongside me. We expected to say it was going to extra time and to ask

:02:31.:02:35.

what the game plan would be. Nathan Arnold popped up and did for his

:02:36.:02:42.

manager Danny Cowley, what they almost did Portman Road, but tonight

:02:43.:02:46.

they finished the job in front of a home crowd of 10,000. Listen to the

:02:47.:02:50.

home support, something special is happening here at Sincil Bank. The

:02:51.:02:55.

players doing it on the pitch, the coaching staff have integrated them

:02:56.:02:58.

into the community and to put in a performance like that is

:02:59.:03:03.

outstanding. Everyone needs credit. This club is going places and you

:03:04.:03:06.

can sense the excitement. The news will follow in a few minutes,

:03:07.:03:11.

dominated by news of Brexit but it is Ipswich's exit tonight that will

:03:12.:03:14.

cause Mick McCarthy nightmares tonight because that was a woeful

:03:15.:03:18.

performance at times from his side. They couldn't match up to the

:03:19.:03:21.

intensity and haranguing of that aside from Lincoln City. Let's hear

:03:22.:03:25.

from the goal-scorer Nathan Arnold who is with Damien.

:03:26.:03:29.

Nathan Vella many congratulations, describe your feelings as the ball

:03:30.:03:39.

hit the net. We fully deserved it over the two Lakes and I was pleased

:03:40.:03:44.

to get the goal. I was pleased, my Mrs had a dream that I scored and we

:03:45.:03:52.

won 1-0. Had to keep your composure rounding the keeper. Yes, you've got

:03:53.:03:56.

to stay calm in those moments and it was a great ball and my experience

:03:57.:04:01.

kept my head call at that moment. Does that top what you achieved with

:04:02.:04:06.

Grimsby scoring at Wembley? It is up there, definitely up there. Before

:04:07.:04:10.

the game we backed ourselves and they made five changes, and, you

:04:11.:04:15.

know, we wanted to take advantage of that and it's not always good if you

:04:16.:04:18.

don't have continuity in the team. Proud of the lads and we deserve

:04:19.:04:22.

that. Well done, Nathan, congratulations.

:04:23.:04:26.

Terry Butcher, a goal that takes them into the fourth round and a

:04:27.:04:30.

home tie against Brighton Hove Albion. It does, great build-up

:04:31.:04:34.

play, that free kick from Lawrence, woeful defending from Ipswich,

:04:35.:04:42.

Arnold goes around the keeper. I tell you what, Ipswich should be

:04:43.:04:44.

having an autopsy on the way they played over the two games. Insipid,

:04:45.:04:55.

I'm embarrassed. Blimey, that was an utter disgrace from Ipswich. Of

:04:56.:04:58.

course, there was another non-league side left in the competition as the

:04:59.:05:02.

night began, Sutton who played their rivals AFC Wimbledon, they were down

:05:03.:05:08.

to ten men. Sutton ended up 3-1 winners. Two non-league sides left

:05:09.:05:12.

in the draw now for the fourth round, left in the fourth round, the

:05:13.:05:17.

draw happened a week ago and their reward is a tie against Leeds United

:05:18.:05:21.

as well. What a night it has been, we promised drama and emotion,

:05:22.:05:24.

because the last man to take them through to the fourth round of the

:05:25.:05:28.

FA Cup was Graham Taylor. Tonight they have lauded his memory here and

:05:29.:05:32.

as the big man himself would say, I think you will agree, did we not

:05:33.:05:36.

like that? From all of us here at Sincil Bank, a very good night.

:05:37.:05:41.

I'm not too sure how many nights quite at this have been experienced

:05:42.:05:46.

at Sincil Bank. It is throbbing with anticipation of what is to come. The

:05:47.:05:54.

cross and a big chance! Brilliant save!

:05:55.:05:59.

Arnold! Arnold to win the cup

:06:00.:06:02.
