Hull City and Sheffield United are in FA Cup quarter final action, with the prize of reaching the semi final just 90 minutes away.
Chris Dawkes has been assessing the chances of both teams:
There is the very real prospect of a Sheffield derby in the quarter finals of the FA Cup, after League One Sheffield United caused another major upset by beating Nottingham Forest 3-1 at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The Blades came back from a one goal deficit at half-time. Conor Coady equalised; then two minutes from time, the Blades were awarded a penalty, which substitute Chris Porter converted - and in injury time, Porter struck again.
United will have a home tie against city rivals Wednesday, provided the Owls can beat Charlton in their postponed fifth round tie, which was called off on Saturday because of a waterlogged pitch at Hillsborough. A date has yet to be fixed for the re-arranged game.
Sheffield United skipper Michael Doyle returns to contention for Sunday's FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest following suspension.
Doyle has served a three-match ban for his red card against Fulham at Bramall Lane in the previous round, but on-loan Doncaster striker Billy Paynter, Elliott Whitehouse and Callum McFadzean are all ineligible.
Manager Nigel Clough has no new injury or suspension problems, while forwards Chris Porter and Shaun Miller, who scored the extra-time winner at Fulham in a fourth-round replay, are pushing for recalls.
Although on the surface it seems like special day for Clough, who of course has so many links with Forest, the Blades man sees it differently, as John Shires found out:
Following a pitch inspection, Sheffield United's game against Brentford has been called off.
The fixture at Bramall Lane will be rescheduled for a later date.
Sheffield United have enhanced their reputation as this year's FA Cup giantkillers by claiming another Premier League scalp.
In round three the Blades - struggling near the foot of League One - beat Aston Villa, and last night a goal in the final minute of extra time was just enough to see them over the line against Fulham. John Shires reports.
Sheffield United enhanced their reputation as this year's FA Cup giantkillers by claiming another Premier League scalp against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
In round three the Blades - struggling near the foot of League One - beat Aston Villa, and last night a goal in the final minute of extra time was just enough to see them over the line.
John Shires has the roundup:
Sheffield United are through to the last 16 of the FA Cup, after a dramatic last minute extra time replay win at Fulham last night.
Premier League Fulham became the Blades' second top flight victims in the competition this season, when substitute Shaun Miller stooped to head home the winner in the 119th minute at Craven Cottage.
In the fifth round United will face the winners of tonight's replay between Preston and manager Nigel Clough's former club Nottingham Forest.
Clough says the magic of the cup is driving them on:
Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough hopes his embattled side will gain new impetus from an FA Cup upset that left Fulham counterpart Rene Meulensteen answering fresh questions about his future.
Shaun Miller's last-gasp header secured the team 23rd in League One a 1-0 extra-time victory in Tuesday's fourth-round replay, as the west Londoners went the same way as Aston Villa in the previous round.
The Premier League scalps have been a welcome distraction for relegation-threatened United and Clough hopes the victory at Craven Cottage will boost his ailing side.
"The determination and resolve lacking on Saturday (in the 3-0 defeat to Crewe) we showed in abundance this evening," the former Derby boss said.
"We frustrated Fulham but I thought we were enough of a threat ourselves throughout the course of the game, especially the second half of normal time.
"It is important that we do take something from it and try and get back on track in the league.
"Some of the performances have been good but we haven't quite had our rewards.
We sit second from bottom and have 19 games to get out.
"This is all very well winning at a Premier League side, but the priority remains staying in our league."
United return to League One action when Shrewsbury visit Bramall Lane this weekend and also face a home clash against Brentford before their fifth-round tie.
The opponents of that match will be decided on Wednesday night at Deepdale when Preston take on Nottingham Forest, with whom Clough played in the 1991 FA Cup final.
"At this moment, honestly, all we are doing is looking at Shrewsbury on Saturday," the United boss said.
"That will take care of itself in a couple of weeks' time. Just Shrewsbury on Saturday is all that concerns us and getting the players right physically after tonight's efforts."
