Sunderland win FA Cup replay to enter fifth round

Middlesbrough: Sunderland will meet Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup after winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough in a replay from Stephane Sessegnon's extra-time winner.

The Benin forward struck in the 113th minute to take Sunderland through to a last-16 clash - their first in eight years - with Arsenal on February 18 at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland took a 42nd-minute lead through Jack Colback's left-footed strike, but Lukas Jutkiewicz's first Boro goal took the match beyond 90 minutes.

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill says "I thought we were the better all-round football team" and "it's a fantastic effort by the players. I thought they did exceptionally well."
