Social media reaction

These were the scenes on the terraces when the winning goal went in. There was over 900 people in attendance which is remarkable for a game this early in the competition. 

After that dramatic game that looked like it was slipping away, FC United's twitter account spoke to their manager about the entertaining cup match. He gave his take on how his injury ravaged side managed to pull a result out of the bag.

This is the Twitter reaction from Bootle. They would have proud with their performance on the night but obviously distraught with the ending to the match.
