but no giant killing acts
the fifth round awaits.

No shocks in the fourth round but Kidderminster gave it a good go as did Watford leading two nil at mighty Man City,and my team came out in the second half and gave Arsenal a game but their class came through in the end. No giant killing which is the magic of the Cup,sadly it looks like those days are on the way out.
