There was to be no giant killing at Old Trafford today as Wes Brown’s header put an end to Crawley Town’s FA Cup run.

It took United a half hour to break the deadlock when Brown glanced Gibson’s cross past Kuipers yet Crawley weren’t to be disheartened and they threatened to upset the script with a number of half chances and even hit the bar in the last minute via a looping header.

With wholesale changes made from last week United were ordinary for large spells of the game whilst Crawley were your typical under dogs looking to cause an upset but it wasn’t to be.

United go into the draw for the 6th round to be made tomorrow.
