Fulham end Sunderland’s run to set up Leeds tie

Harry Wilson
Harry Wilson’s first goal of the season helped Fulham progress to the fifth round

Fulham saw off Championship play-off hopefuls Sunderland to set up an FA Cup fifth-round tie against Leeds United.

Harry Wilson’s early goal put a much-changed Fulham side in control of the fourth-round replay, with the winger slotting his effort into the bottom corner with the outside of his boot after he was teed up by Carlos Vinícius.

Substitutes Aleksandar Mitrovic and Andreas Pereira combined for Fulham’s second goal just before the hour mark, when Mitrovic did well to keep the ball in on the byline and touch it back for Pereira to tap in.

Sunderland were given faint hope when Jack Clarke curled a superb strike into the far corner following a pass from Ajibola Alese.

But Layvin Kurzawa re-established Fulham’s two-goal lead, firing into the roof of the net following a knockdown from Shane Duffy.

With minutes to spare, substitute Jewison Bennette gave the hosts hope once again when he coolly lifted into the corner from close range, but the Black Cats fell short despite a valiant effort.

More to follow.
