Non League Sutton United and Lincoln City through to FA Cup 4th round

Non league sides Sutton United and Lincoln City caused upsets against high division opposition to make it through to the FA Cup 4th round.

Sutton United came from one goal behind to win 3-1 away at AFC Wimbledon and Lincoln City won 1-0 at home to Ipswich Town courtesy of an injury time winner.

Lincoln found a stoppage-time winner from Nathan Arnold to see off Championship side Ipswich in front of the BBC One cameras, while Sutton scored twice in added time to come from behind and win at League One side AFC Wimbledon.

Sutton United manger, Paul Doswell, says that the win and televised tie against Leeds will be worth around £300,000 to the club. Before the match Doswell said “We are up almost £200,000 from the Cup run and that would take us to £500,000 if we beat Wimbledon, which is beyond our wildest dreams."
