    It can't possibly be a bad game. Surely?

    Player reaction- Brighton 1-1 Hull

    Brighton defender Matthew Upson: "I feel a little bit down when you lose a goal so late on, but we're still in the round.

    "It was tired legs, to-ing and fro-ing, but we gave a good account of ourselves and we've got to be happy with the overall performance.

    "This back end of the season with the Championship is crammed, Saturday-Tuesday so from that point of view it's a disadvantage for us, but we love to be in the cup so we want to carry on."

    JPT Update- Swindon 1-1 Peterborough (Agg 3-3)

    BBC Sport's Caroline Chapman reports: "Heartbreak for Swindon as Peterborough go through to the Wembley final on penalties. Massimo Luongo missed the first spot kick and substitute Tijane Reis also hit high and wide to give Posh the advantage. It fell to Tommy Rowe to win it, and he coolly slotted home to send Posh to their first ever cup final."

    Michael Plumridge: Hull City got lucky tonight! Why put a weak team out when your close to reaching Quarter Final? Brighton deserve to go through!

  5. 21:56: 
    Manager Reaction- Brighton 1-1 Hull

    Hull boss Steve Bruce: "We are still in it. We showed plenty of grit, we didn't play well but we stuck at it. The changes we made freshened us up and we could have nicked it at the end. Brighton are a good side who give everyone a run for their money."

  6. 21:51: 
    JPT Latest- Swindon 1-1 Peterborough (Agg 3-3)

    It's all over at the County Ground - Peterborough have won the shoot-out and are off to Wembley!

  7. 21:50: 
    Brighton 1-1 Hull

    The replay has already been set - that was quick. Brighton will travel to Hull this time next week, next Monday night. That's the same time as Sheffield Wednesday face Charlton in the remaining fifth-round tie.

  8. 21:49: 

    Gus Poyet's return to the Amex is on hold then. Hull went for it in the last half an hour and arguably just about deserved the replay in the end.

    Ben Doveton: Come on Seagulls. It must be written that we meet Poyet's Sunderland. And then get beat for his revenge!

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 1-1 Hull

    "That was hard work at times, pretty turgid stuff. But the last 20 minutes were wonderful and if both sides had shown that will to win earlier it would have been done and dusted.

    "Both teams will take a replay."

  11. 21:40: 
    FULL-TIME- Brighton 1-1 Hull

    There it is. Plenty of late drama but it's replay time.

    It's gone to penalties at Swindon...

  13. 21:38: 
    CLOSE!- Brighton 1-1 Hull

    Robert Koren to win it! No! Lewis Dunk extends a toe to turn over Koren's drive after Yannick Sagbo's dummy had played him in. So nearly the winner for Hull...

    David Meyler then has a header cleared off the line!

    Rob in Cheltenham will no doubt be telling us that Kingmaker are planning a reunion...

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 1-1 Hull

    "I think that Yannick Sagbo has earned the little bit of luck and maybe. on the balance of play, his side have too. It was a composed finish when the ball came back to him."

  20. 21:31: 
    GOAL- Brighton 1-1 Hull - Yannick Sagbo (85 mins)

    Goal out of nothing! Hull had been looking dangerous, but they sneak an equaliser moments after Jake Forster-Caskey almost made it through at the other end. Sone Aluko instead crosses from the right, Yannick Sagbo takes a fine touch to take the ball away from the Brighton defence and then smashes through the keeper's legs from close range. Unstoppable.

  21. 21:27:

    Brighton v Hull

    Andrew: Brighton have been in total control tonight, but every time they spurn a great opportunity to kill off the game you think to yourself, they'll rue these missed chances. Hull City are very much alive and well in this Cup-tie. All to play for.

  24. 21:24: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Brighton goalscorer Leo Ulloa is off, replaced by Jonathan Obika. Fresh legs for the last 13 minutes.

  25. 21:23: 
    JPT Latest- Swindon 1-1 Peterborough (Agg 3-3)

    BBC Sport's Caroline Chapman reports: "After a relatively dull start to the second half, Britt Assombalonga has injected a bit of life into the County Ground. The Posh striker leapt high above the Swindon defence and headed home with ease to make it 1-1 with 15 minutes of normal time remaining. Penalties to come if the deadlock isn't broken."

  26. 21:23: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Sone Aluko wins a free-kick 25 yards out and Tom Huddlestone lines it up - but can only smash his effort into the wall.

    Less than 15 minutes to go now for Hull...

  27. 21:19: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Hull have not really adjusted to their new shape, struggling to keep the ball but here's a better opening. Ahmed Elmohamady whips in a great cross, he has men waiting at the back post but Brighton keeper Peter Brezovan makes a great claim, winning the ball ahead of them all.

  28. 21:14: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Solly March has a trick or two up his sleeve, jinking away easily from George Boyd before his cross is hacked out.

    March then gets behind Hull again to tee up Inigo Calderon, but he blasts a shot over the top. Open game now, Hull are pushing men on but are in danger of leaving the back door unlocked.

    Alex Lancaster: Come on City, let's not throw the cup away. Think of Wembley!

  30. 21:13: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Looks like a switch to three at the back for Hull now, an attacking line-up which is what they need now. They have 22 minutes to salvage their Cup run.

  31. 21:11: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    'Shoooooottttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!' urge the crowd, and Inigo Calderon obliges, hitting an effort which is deflected clear.

    Hull use the stoppage to make a double sub, George Boyd and Matty Fryatt on in place of Abdoulaye Faye and Stephen Quinn.

  32. 21:08: 
    CLOSE!- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Hull win a free-kick on the right and Tom Huddleston just lashes it, shin high, across the goalmouth. So hard to deal with, and a Brighton boot deflects the ball up and over the top. Could have gone anywhere, absolutely anywhere.

    Hull make ready their replacements.

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 1-0 Hull

    "Hull have no real width. The only time they really threaten from the flanks is when Maynor Figueroa gets forward or with Ahmed Elmohamady bombing on.

    "They are playing it pretty central through Sone Aluko instead and that might be playing into Brighton's hands."

  34. 21:05: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Brighton are dug in now. Men behind the ball and then hit Hull on the counter. It almost works too, as Leonardo Ulloa runs onto Solly March's clipped pass but much like Kingmaker's musical career, it doesn't quite come off.

    They were supported by Radiohead once you know...

    Text us on 81111

    Rob. Cheltenham: It's more likely that Kingmaker will get back together than Hull will win this.

    Marvellously obscure reference Rob. Pour yourself a drink.

  36. 21:01: 
    YELLOW CARD- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone are switching the play nicely for Hull, whose full-backs are pushed right up front now. Ahmed Elmohamady in particular is a real threat now but Lewis Dunk defends his lines well.

    Brighton sniff a counter and Solly March is clipped by Robert Koren and booked. Tense.

  37. 20:58: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Inigo Calderon is able to continue, and Lewis Dunk then has to be at his best to clear a fine cross from Ahmed Elmohamady. The corner from Tom Huddlestone is a cracker again and Curtis Davies is close to converting on the stretch. Brighton are not dealing with those corners well at all.

  38. 20:55: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Fat lip o'clock for Inigo Calderon as the Brighton captain kops a stray arm in the mush from Stephen Quinn. No intent from Quinn though, he had his eyes on the ball but just clattered the right-back on his way through. Plenty of claret.

    Text us on 81111

    Karl, Brighton: If Brighton win, Poyet will not just be back at the Amex, he'll be in his old seat, because Oscar Garcia switched dugouts when he took charge.

  40. 20:53: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Solly March whips in an early cross but it's well cleared by Hull, who then exasperate Steve Bruce even more with a sloppy throw-in. Is there anything worse than a player messing up a throw-in? One of my pet hates. That and a corner which hits the first man...

  41. 20:51: 
    KICK-OFF- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    We are back under way...

  42. 20:50: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Brighton do make a change at the break though, Solly March - who sounds like a village tradition - coming on for Will Buckley.

  43. 20:50: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Hull boss Steve Bruce on BT Sport: "You need a little bit of luck and on another day we could have been 2-0 up. It's still all to play for and we need to retain better possession."

  44. 20:48: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Here we go then, no changes for Hull. Can they turn it around or will Gus Poyet be back at his old club in the quarter-finals?

  45. 20:43: 
    JPT Latest- Swindon 1-0 Peterborough (Agg 3-2)

    In the Johnstone's Paint area final, Swindon still lead courtesy of that goal from Alex Pritchard. The Robins are 45 away from Wembley.

  46. 20:41: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    There aren't many - let's be honest, any - footballers who are as slow as me but Hull defender Abdoulaye Faye is close. His tracking back for that Brighton goal was extraordinary. Quicksand.

  47. 20:38: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    It really was some miss. Score that and Hull's hopes look slim, but as it is Steve Bruce will back his boys to turn this one around. Hull were ok in that first half, hitting the woodwork twice, and they have the likes of George Boyd and Matty Fryatt available on the bench.

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 1-0 Hull

    "For all the world, Leonardo Ulloa should have put it in. He is unopposed, six yards out, with half the goal to aim at. It is a reactive header, rather than a proactive header. If he attacks that it is 2-0.

    "Brighton might rue that miss by the end of the evening."

  49. 20:35: 
    HALF-TIME- Brighton 1-0 Hull
  50. 20:34: 
    CLOSE!- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Not so predatory this time - and he has to score! Leonardo Ulloa has the whole goal to aim at after Will Buckley picks him out at the back stick, but he closes his eyes and floats a free header eight inches wide of the top corner. What a huge chance, and that could be pivotal...

    Leonardo Ulloa

    Isaac Wolofar: Leonardo Ulloa did precisely what Sturridge failed to do to Arsenal yesterday. Predatory goal-scoring striker

  52. 20:30: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Brighton have won their last two games - both at home - 1-0 with goals from Leonardo Ulloa. Three on the spin? They look comfortable enough at the minute, with Steve Bruce looking pretty angry on the sidelines.

  53. 20:26: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    'Oscar Garcia, he drinks sangria...' is the wonderfully stereotyped song ringing around the Amex as his side look to hold on to their lead as we approach half-time. Gus Poyet could be back at this rate...

  54. 20:23: 
    Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Brighton youngster Adam Chicksen needs some extended treatment after running into Curtis Davies, a real winder that one, but after he finds his breath he's able to continue. Sone Aluko goes in the book for a cynical foul on Kazenga LuaLua.

  55. 20:21: 
    JPT Latest- Swindon 1-0 Peterborough (Agg 3-2)

    BBC Sport's Caroline Chapman reports: "Young Alex Pritchard has been Swindon's best player so far and the 20-year-old Tottenham loanee has put his side ahead, smashing the ball home from close range after some questionable defending from Peterborough. Swindon fans have come alive now."

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 1-0 Hull

    "It was a lovely flick from Will Buckley to play in Leonardo Ulloa had a lovely composed finish. He has made a big difference to Brighton since coming back from injury.

    "We've now got a game after waiting for it come to life."

  57. 20:19: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Brighton 1-0 Hull

    Almost the perfect response! Hull win a corner and Curtis Davies cracks a header against the crossbar, what a header! Smash. And then Ahmed Elmohamady's rebound is almost turned into his own net by Matthew Upson. Steve Bruce can't believe it...

  58. 20:17: 
    GOAL- Brighton 1-0 Hull - Leonardo Ulloa (30 mins)

    Knife through butter! Leonardo Ulloa starts the move with a backheel in the centre-circle, Will Buckley takes the ball on and drives at the Hull backline before releasing Ulloa in on goal. The Argentine cuts across the backtracking Tom Huddlestone, who can't make a challenge, and Ulloa then dinks delightfully over the head of Alan McGregor. Wonderful, cool finish.

  59. 20:16: 

    Chaos at Craven Cottage. Chaos.

  60. 20:16:  
    David Ornstein, BBC SportFulham latest

    "Fulham plan to release a statement on Tuesday morning clarifying their coaching situation. It is expected they will confirm the departures of Rene Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins.

    "Meulensteen told BBC Radio 5 live on Friday he had been removed from his position as head coach, but a Fulham statement made no mention of the Dutchman and only announced Felix Magath as the club's new first-team manager. It is understood a settlement between two parties is now close to being reached.

    "Technical director Curbishley and assistant head coach Wilkins both met with Magath and were informed they would not be part of the German's set-up, whereas Meulensteen was told of his exit by chief executive Alastair Mackintosh."

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 0-0 Hull

    "There is a lot of passing of the sake of it so far in this game, without anything actually going anywhere.

    "The players are not committing the opposition or trying to move into space. You cannot see either side dominating while it carries on like this. It has been hard work to watch.

    "There is no tempo, no urgency and neither side is giving us much to shout about."

  62. 20:14: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Best moment of the game so far. Hull swing in a fine cross from the right for Yannick Sagbo to attack, and attack it he does, flicking a volley toward the top corner but seeing it smash back out off the frame of the goal.

    Unlucky for the big man, but Hull taking charge now.

  63. 20:10: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Brighton centre-back Lewis Dunk - owner of one of the finest names outside of the top flight - shows some decent defending of his own to head away a swinging cross from the left as Hull now put together a spell of pressure. Yannick Sagbo has won some headers for them to set it all up, while Tom Huddlestone is pinging passes from right to left.

    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Inigo Calderon gets space on the right again for Brighton, and delivers another fizzing cross which Curtis Davies this time heads clear with some dominant defending at the front post. Hull just weathering a slight storm now.

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 0-0 Hull

    "It was the first time that either side has got behind the opposition, but that is a very difficult technique that Jake Caskey is trying there, hooking it over his shoulder."

    Listen to live commentary on BBC Radio 5live

  67. 20:05: 
    ACROBATIC EFFORT- Brighton 0-0 Hull

    That's more like it! After more patient build-up play Brighton captain Inigo Calderon gets behind the defence on the right, he takes his time and picks out a neat cross to midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey 12 yards out, the youngster launches into a fine over-head kick but skies his shot.

    At the other end Yannick Sagbo drives wide for Hull. Promising minute of action.

  68. 20:02: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    'Low-key' would probably be my summary of the opening 15 minutes. This needs a goal to open it up, it's all a bit sterile at the minute.

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 0-0 Hull

    "We have got a competition among Brighton for the worst shot of the season. Will Buckley never set himself correctly there and it was never going to be on target. I'm sure if he had his time again he would take another option."

    Steve Huish - Surbiton: Why have Hull made so many changes? Steve Bruce why are you doing this? You have nothing else to play for! Man City had 46 thousand and played a full team and are playing Barcelona tomorrow. Respect the Cup.

  71. 19:58: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    One of Tom Huddlestone's strengths is his casual, laid-back nature. But it gets him in trouble here, dawdling on the ball just outside of his own area and Will Buckley takes it off his toes and surges forward, but then leans back and gets his body shape wrong, firing high and wide over the bar from 20 yards.

    Chance for Brighton!

    BBC Radio 5 live's Steve Claridge at the AmexBrighton 0-0 Hull

    "There is no real pattern or shape to the game yet with both sides feeling each other out and not wanting to take too many risks. No defensive worries for either side yet."

  73. 19:56: 
    Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    The dead ball is horrible though! Will Buckley floats in a free-kick 20 yards away from his nearest team-mate. Jake Forster-Caskey then rattles a shot well wide from 25 yards as the Seagulls continue their decent start.

  74. 19:54: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Brighton looking very comfortable in possession, very Swansea-esque in the opening exchanges. Much like Swansea at times though, the ball has barely reached the opponents' penalty area. Plenty of tippy-tappy stuff in the central third.

    But here's a first sign of danger from the hosts - Leonardo Ulloa robs Abdoulaye Faye of the ball and is tripped right on the edge of the area...

  75. 19:52: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Hull playing with some genuine width, Maynor Figueroa and Ahmed Elmohamady hugging the touchline from full-back. Figueroa can't quite keep in a sweeping crossfield pass though. Steady start.

    "Don't get why a team with no other competition they can possibly win, would play a weakened side in the FA Cup 5th round."

  78. 19:48: 
    Brighton 0-0 Hull

    Hull have the first attack of the night but Robert Koren can't steer his header on target from 15 yards out. Likes a spectacular goal does Koren. I've seen him smash in a few crackers at the Hawthorns down the years.

    Brighton then settle into their shape and rhythm. Keith Andrews conducts the midfield orchestra from his deep role.

    Barca are in town

    We are now just 24 hours away from Lionel Messi and his mates lining up in Manchester against Manuel Pellegrini's City side. The biggest game since, er, the last big one.

    Are we excited? As a neutral this is the sort of night which makes the knockout rounds of the Champions League special.

    City have tried to learn a thing or two from Barca, copying their 'holistic approach.'

    What does that mean? From training ground facilities to academy coaching, from player recruitment to the first team's playing style, the intention is for everything the club does to fit together and create a coherent whole.

    BBC Sport's Caroline Chapman at the County Ground: "It's that time of year again, when the much-maligned Johnstone's Paint Trophy gets a bit serious.

    "The four remaining teams - Fleetwood, Chesterfield, Swindon and Peterborough - are now only one game away from a Wembley final, with real silverware at stake.

    "Posh are four points above the Robins in the league, and Town boss Mark Cooper insists his team are the underdogs. But they've got previous in this competition - having reached the Wembley showpiece under Paolo Di Canio in 2011-12."

    Jenni from Newtownards: When you look at tonight's football fixtures and see Brighton vs Hull your brain immediately switches off, that is until you realise that it's and FA Cup fixture. Then it suddenly becomes an interesting game, as everyone knows anything can happen in the FA Cup.

    Team News- Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    Hull make six changes, as cup-tied front two Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic are replaced by Yannick Sagbo and Sone Aluko.

    Hull XI: McGregor, Figueroa, Davies, Huddlestone, Koren, Livermore, Sagbo, Faye, Aluko, Elmohamady, Quinn

  101. 18:55: 
    Play-off push?- Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    These two sides could yet meet again on a regular basis from next season. Hull may be having a strong first season back in the top flight in 13th place, but they are only three points above the drop zone and a long way from being safe yet.

    Brighton - on the other hand - have recovered from the loss of Gus Poyet and are just four points short of the play-off places with a game in hand.

    Goalscoring has been been an issue though. The Seagulls have only bagged 32 times in the league so far - the worst record in the top half of the Championship. Please don't serve up a 0-0 tonight lads...

  102. 18:54: 
    Team News- Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    Brighton's FA Cup hopes may not be too massive - as coach Oscar Garcia makes seven changes from the side which beat Leeds last time out. Will Buckley is back from injury and former Bolton midfielder Keith Andrews also starts.

    Brighton XI: Brezovan; Calderon, Upson, Dunk, Chicksen; Ince, Foster-Caskey, Andrews; Buckley, LuaLua, Ulloa

  103. 18:49: 
    Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    Hull's FA Cup pedigree goes as far as one semi-final appearance in 1930.

    The Tigers held eventual winners Arsenal to a 2-2 draw at Elland Road before the Gunners secured a place at Wembley with a 1-0 replay win at Villa Park four days later.

    Could this be Hull's shot at a first final?

    Andrew, Richhill: Whenever I hear the name of Brighton & Hove Albion in the same sentence as the FA Cup, my mind immediately switches back to the FA Cup Final of 1983. A brilliant 2-2 draw vs Manchester United with Brighton going on to lose the replay 0-4. Magic FA Cup memories.

    And Smith must score...- Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)
    Brighton fans at Wembley

    One man who is probably hoping that Brighton don't make it all the way to the final is former Brighton striker Gordon Smith. He missed a great chance to win the Cup for Brighton in 1983, with the famous commentary 'and Smith must score!' even being used as the name of a fanzine.

    His phone will be red hot should the Seagulls make it to Wembley...


    So another weekend of FA Cup action comes to a close. Penalties given, penalties not given, giants killed, routine home wins and Football League sides eyeing up a trip to Wembley.

    It's had the lot. But what was your highlight? And who are favourites to lift the FA Cup this season? Let us know.

    You can text us on 81111 (UK Only) - providing you pop a name on there - or tweet us at #bbcfootball.

    Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    Hull are expecting around 700 away fans to make the 540-mile round trip to the south coast for tonight's game - a sterling effort that will be worth it should the Tigers progress.

    The sides met at the Amex almost exactly a year ago, with Brighton grinding out a 1-0 win in the Championship thanks to a goal from Spanish winger Vicente. In fact, the Tigers have not won in Brighton for a while. A long while.

    August 1965, in fact, was the last time Hull won on the south coast. And Brighton have won both meetings in the FA Cup as well. It's probably too late to turn back if you're reading this Hull fans...

  108. 18:33: 

    With Chelsea, Liverpool, Swansea, Cardiff, Southampton and Nottingham Forest all exiting the famous old trophy over the weekend - and with Arsenal facing Everton in the last eight - it really does look a good cup draw for one of the 'less fashionable' sides to at least reach the final. Wigan won it last year, why not again?

    Here's the quarter-final draw in full:

    Arsenal v Everton

    Brighton & Hove Albion or Hull City v Sunderland

    Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic

    Manchester City v Wigan Athletic

  109. 1830: 
    In it to win it...- Brighton v Hull (19:45 GMT)
    Steve Bruce

    "To have a chance of going to Wembley would be massive, the kind of thing you work hard for all your life.

    "You win five games and you've won the cup. So let's get past Brighton and have a good run, why not?"

    Not my words, the words of Hull boss Steve Bruce ahead of tonight's fifth-round tie at the Amex. Bruce won three FA Cups as a player with Manchester United and could top his managerial cv with a fourth win as a manager.

    The quarter-final draw has opened it all up - can Hull or Brighton win this year's FA Cup? Course they can...
