Stevenage 1-1 Hull City (6-5 pens): Boro beat League One leaders on penalties

League Two strugglers Stevenage produced one of the shocks of the FA Cup second round as they beat League One leaders Hull City on penalties.

Chelsea loanee Jamie Cumming was the hero for Boro as he made good saves to deny Tom Eaves and Sean McLoughlin in the shootout.

Eaves had earlier given the visitors the lead from the penalty spot after Martin Samuelson had been felled by Arthur Iontton.

Sub Elliott List finished well to level for the hosts and, after neither side could find a winner in extra time, the game went to penalties where the side 21st in League Two held their nerve.

Hull, beaten FA Cup finalists in 2014, had won their previous six matches in all competitions but their much-changed side never really dominated against an organised Stevenage.

Both teams created chances in an open first half with Remi Oteh forcing a decent save from visiting goalkeeper George Long and Jamie Scott twice forcing Cumming into action.

Eaves' penalty looked like it would be enough for Grant McCann's men but poor defending allowed List to smash home a leveller.

The Tigers took an early advantage in the shootout when Long saved Tom Pett's opening kick but Cumming, who impressed throughout, came out on top to send the hosts into the third round.
