FA Cup Highlights

About this programme

Matt Smith is joined by Andy Townsend and John Hartson to present action from today's third-round ties, including Sheffield United v Aston Villa at Bramall Lane, Burton Albion v Middlesbrough at the Pirelli Stadium and Scunthorpe United v Everton at Glanford Park. The Blades and Villa met here at this stage of the 2004/05 campaign, with the Yorkshiremen recording a 3-1 win, and will have felt they could overcome their Premier League opponents once more, as Gerard Houllier's men had struggled on their travels this term. Scunthorpe and Burton will also have fancied their chances of producing upsets, with their respective opponents having both endured indifferent first halves of the season.
