Forest to face the Blades in FA Cup

11:25 am on 6 February 2014

English Championship side Nottingham Forest have beaten League One club Preston North End 2-0 in their FA Cup replay at Deepdale.

Forest now travel to face Sheffield United in the last 16, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs.

United are another League One side who, unlike fourth-placed Preston, are struggling in the third division - the Blades are second bottom and fighting relegation.

But they knocked out Premier Leaguers Fulham with a shock 1-0 win away in the last minute of extra time in London in their replay on Wednesday.
