  2. 'Martin was outstanding barring one moment'

    FT: Millwall 2-2 (4-5 on pens) Brighton

    Millwall manager Neil Harris, speaking to BBC One: "I thought the players were outstanding. What a performance for 94 minutes. I am a little more disappointed with the first goal. The second was an individual error. [Millwall goalkeeper] David Martin is one of the best pros I have come across. He is a great lad, so popular. He deserved his opportunity to come into the team last week. He was outstanding for the whole game baring one moment. That is football.

    "I am a big believer of whoever misses the first penalty wins the shootout. I wasn't confident. Shane Ferguson is our best penalty taker and wasn't on the pitch because of a moment of stupidity. The players put themselves forward so I have no problems with them missing at all.

    "I am frustrated. Missing the chance to lead the team in an FA Cup semi-final is a huge frustration for myself, staff, players and fans."

    We shouldn't really have had penalties.

    Brighton scored this in the final minute of extra time but it was incorrectly ruled out for offside.

  6. 'We are up against one of the best sides in the country'

    FT: Millwall 2-2 (4-5 on pens) Brighton

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton on the semi-final draw: "All three other teams probably didn't want to play Man City but at the moment we are so pleased to go through and if we don't think we can win, then there is no point going into the tie. We are up against one of the best sides in the country, but on the day, we have a chance and we will have to have everything go our way."

  7. 'A proper cup tie'

    FT: Millwall 2-2 (4-5 on pens) Brighton

    BBC One

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton said: "I think that was what you call a proper cup tie. I didn't think we did well enough in the early part of the game. This is a very difficult place and they have history in this competition, but it's about character and we had a group of players that decided they desperately wanted to stay in this competition."

    On the equaliser: "As soon as Solly [March] played the ball in, we were disappointed because he over hit it but sometimes you need those moments. We probably didn't create enough of them but we had a bit of fortune to swing it our way.

    "We were confident in the penalty shootout, but when you miss the first one and they score, you think it may not be our day. But we showed enough with our remaining takers and I think we showed more over the 90 minutes."

    Did this cost Millwall?

    Shane Ferguson was sent off late in extra time. It's likely that he'd have taken a penalty...

    Brighton captain Lewis Dunk said: "It's crazy. We did it the hard way. We knew it would be difficult and we made it even harder for ourselves going 2-0 down, but it's a great day. It shows what great character we have got under this manager and we never give up.

    "Massive credit to all the boys and you can hear what it means to the fans. We knew the prize coming here and now we go to Wembley. We have to deal with whoever we get and hopefully we win and go through to the FA Cup final."
