All the highlights form the FA Cup as Liverpool was saved from a early fa cup exit thanks to a equaliser from Steven Gerrard to avoid a shock third-round exit at the hands of Reading tonight.

Gerrard’s leveller earned the Reds an Anfield replay after Simon Church had put the Championship side ahead.

The Royals started well at the Madejski, and sent the home fans into ecstasy by breaking the deadlock on 24 minutes.

Simon Church bundled the ball home from close range after Grzegorz Rasiak had got behind Lucas to cut back a free-kick from Ryan Bertrand.

But that lead lasted just 12 minutes as Liverpool talisman Gerrard struck to earn the visitors a draw

 The only goal of the game from Benjani was enough to give Manchester City a 1-0 win away at Middlesbrough and send them through to the FA Cup fourth round.

Manager Roberto Mancini was pleased with the way his weakened side dealt with a tough Middlesbrough team and praised goal scorer Benjani.

“Benjani is a good player,” Mancini told Sky Sports.

“We brought him in three days ago and today he played well and scored and that is important

On a shock-free day, last season’s runners-up Everton overcame Carlisle 3-1, Tottenham Hotspur beat Peterborough 4-0 and Championship side Preston North End, who sacked manager Alan Irvine last week, thrashed Colchester United 7-0.
Burnley beat Coca-Cola League One MK Dons 2-1, Graham Alexander’s penalty and Steven Fletcher’s goal proving sufficient despite Dean Morgan’s late strike.
