After a thrilling encounter at the Stadium of Light we will have the pleasure of watching it all over again as a replay awaits at the Riverside. Thanks for your company and I'll see you all soon.
Jutkiewicz crosses in at the far post but Emnes can't generate any power on his header as O'Shea heads away!
Williams intercepts Colback's ball but Sunderland press with McClean again, forcing McMahon into another sturdy clearance.
It's all Sunderland now, who of course have a recent history of late goals, with McClean's fierce drive grazing the side netting as the home fans temporarily rejoiced thinking it had crept in past Ripley!
Larsson crosses in from the right, with Campbell lurking, but Ripley claims confidently and looks to set his team away with a long kick upfield.
Ripley's clearance is straight at Gardner, as McClean looks to break, before Bates' clearance is nearly diastrous before he coolly plays it back to his keeper.
Campbell makes a storming run but ends up isolated and without space as he is crowded out, and Boro regain possession to his team-mates' frustration.
McClean is too vigorous is pressing McMahon and concedes a foul which the right-back will boot upfield.
Larsson's corner is cleared, but Gardner plays it back to the winger who amazingly aims for Sessegnon, their smallest player, at the back-post and it unsurprisingly runs out.
McClean again provides quality service on the left, with Bates once more getting in the way to clear the ball behind goal for a corner.
It's at that stage where either a moment of genius or a complete howler will settle the tie, as was the case with the first two goals, but Sunderland have the ball now with Colback, who wins a throw-in deep in Boro's half.
McDonald is perplexed as he is penalised for an elbow on McClean, but it's a clear foul, and O'Shea boots it upfield where Campbell then nudges over Bates in the six-yard box.
Emnes' hold-up play is poor as Campbell steps in to intercept, but McClean can't latch on to Colback's ball which runs straight to Ripley.
Coyne comes off for Connor Ripley in a Boro sub, while Jack Colback replaces Vaughan for Sunderland.
Larsson makes a crucial touch as Jutkiewicz prepared to pull the trigger, as Boro win another corner.
McMahon goes through McClean and concedes a foul, with that one the latest in a string of challenges that are now starting to fly again.
Mignolet flaps at the corner but is fortunately seen out of jail as a foul is given against Williams as O'Shea continues to be seen to on the side.
O'Shea has taken a cut and understandably he is very annoyed that he is sent off to receive treatment as Sunderland defend the corner with ten men.
Hoyte advances forward, but his ball into Robson is headed away by Vaughan, as Williams launches it back in to Boro earn a corner off O'Shea.
Boro keep the ball in play after some good Sunderland defending, with O'Shea eventually heading away as Jutkiewicz looked to exert some influence in the six-yard box.
Solid defending from Bates denies McClean space on the left, as we enter the final 15 minutes with both teams looking strong on the break.
Robson's first-time ball to Jutkiewicz is headed away well by O'Shea, as Campbell rifles an effort away that sails over the bar at the other end.
Vaughan is reeling from the tackle, catching some of Williams' studs in his shin, and this could be the end of the Sunderland midfielder's afternoon.
The corner eventually falls to Sessegnon who speculatively launches a half-volley on goal which keeps rising and ends up with the fans behind.
McClean is causing all kinds of problems now, as he drifts another ball into the six-yard box which forces Hoyte into a sliding clearance.
McClean fizzes a ball from the left side, with Bates keeping his eye on it to clear, before Vaughan's deflected shot is caught acrobatically by Coyne.
The ball falls to Emnes in space but the striker's effort is woeful as he blazes it over from inside the box. Another good chance goes begging for Boro.
The away fans start to cheer before they realise Bardsley's header hits the side netting for another corner.
Haroun denies Richardson's clearance with some terrific pressing, before winning it back, with Wiliams' striker deflecting out for a corner.
Larsson's out-swinger is headed away by Bates at the far post, but it's all Sunderland now and Tony Mowbray will hope his side can see out this storm as they struggle to get out their own half.
The home fans are turning the Stadium of Light into a cauldron of noise now, as Sessegnon charges at Williams, before winning a corner after Bates' clearance.
Boro are caught on the break after Robson's terrible pass-back is picked up on by McClean, who finds Campbell with the right pass, and the striker ends 500 days of goal impotence to equalise with a crucial goal! Game on again.
The physios are attending to Brown, as Martin O'Neill hopes on the sidelines he won't lose his defender to a second injury in his brief time in charge of Sunderland.
Brown bravely leaps for a header but falls nastily after colliding with Richardson and Emnes and things don't look good for the defender who seemed to fall heavily on his shoulder.
Sessegnon's flick on seems inoccuous but a deflection nearly forces the ball into Campbell's path, with Coyne reading the situation and rushing out to claim quickly.
Haroun, who has been bright all day, powers forward on the right, and eventually loses out despite providing some strained moments for Richardson.
McMahon ventures forward, drawing a strong tackle from McClean which infuriates the Boro defender as no free-kick is given, and rightly so replays show.
Larsson fires a free-kick in from the left, and McMahon is forced into a solid header as set-pieces appear to be a key danger for both teams now.
Robson curls an effort at goal, but Mignolet has the far post covered and sees it roll out of play comfortably.
Haroun is hacked down by Gardner, with Boro beginning the second half brightly here as they win a free-kick 30 yards out from Mignolet's goal.
Another good chance arises for Boro as McDonald half-volleys the ball back in from the corner, with Emnes latching on to the volley which is narrowly fired wide.
Robson progresses well down the left and earns a corner for his efforts after forcing Bardsley into deflecting behind.
Mignolet barely reclaims possession of a cross in from McDonald on the right as Emnes lay it waiting, his pressure not quite enough to force the keeper into an error.
I've been informed by Jay Woff at the break that Richardson picked up a booking in the first half for a challenge on Emnes. Meanwhile, Martin O'Neill has reportedly been fuming at referee Kevin Friend during the half-time interval.
Robson's wondergoal is the difference at the break, in what has been a terrific, passionate half at the Stadium of Light. Stay tuned for more of the same in the second half, you can send your e-mails to email@example.com or tweet me @JWoodfield365
Sessegnon isn't happy with Williams, who avoids a caution for a late slide on the Sunderland man. Probably best that half-time is round the corner as tempers threaten to flare.
Two minutes of time is added on, as Emnes is floored by Gardner, with passions rising by the minute.
It should be 2-0 to Boro. Jutkiewicz is played in by Haroun, whose initial shot is saved, before his second effort bobbles inches wide of goal. What a chance.
Sunderland are furious after a rugged challenge from Hoyte on Sessegnon, who picks up a booking in the process. Not a good tackle at all.
Jutkiewicz tried to shoot on the edge of the box but a barrage of Sunderland bodies get in the way. Moments later, Hines is fouled by McClean and it's a Boro free-kick.
Hoyte cuts out Gardner's flick-on to Larsson but Robson can't create anything in the final third and once more the ball ends up back with the hosts' defence.
Offside seems to be the decision given but it should actually have been for a handball, replays show. The right decision is given but for the wrong reason.
The officials are conversing over why Gardner's goal has been disallowed, which stemmed from Richardson's ball in landing at Gardner's feet, whose shot went in while Wickham stood in an offisde position.
Williams comes back on a little worse for wear but apparantly in a fit enough state to continue, before Larsson is forced wide and his cross sails over the bar and out.
Williams appears to have some teeth missing after a collision of heads with McClean and the Boro man will need some treatment on the sidelines. No fault of the Sunderland man though.
Larsson's ball in is dangerous, with Williams going down in some distress after Wickham's header had flew over the bar.
Sessegnon goes down under Emnes while running into traffic, as moments later it's Hines who fouls McClean and Sunderland win a free-kick on the left.
Wickham hussles impressively to steer away from danger, but it's a congested midfield right now and Vaughan looks to set free McClean with another ball to the left drifting out of play.
Larsson is dispossessed by the strong McDonald but Boro again lose out in the final third and Vaughan swoops in to regain the ball.
McMahon wins the final header in a flurry of activity on the left side, with McClean forcing Bates into a clearance down the line as that scrappy passage of play comes to an end.
McDonald is caught by a late Bardsley challenge, with the Sunderland man avoiding a booking, while Wickham looks to be carrying a knock which Martin O'Neill will be monitoring closely.
Sunderland win another corner after McClean's cross takes a deflection and the big guns come up in O'Shea and Brown.
Emnes is dispossessed by Gardner, but his ball to McClean is a waste and met with some groans by the home fans.
A McClean corner is booted away by Emnes, but Sunderland retain play in Boro's half before good pressure from the visitors' striker forces O'Shea back to Mignolet.
Great chance for Sunderland as McClean breaks away, forcing a strong parry from Coyne, before the winger is there again, heading Larsson's cross straight at Coyne. Much better from the hosts.
Boro have really started well as Richardson is cut off by their compact defense, with Boro regaining possession through Robson.
Hoyte works hard to make the tackle on Bardsley but Sunderland win a throw-in regardless on the right side.
Gardner delightfully links up with Sessegnon before attempting the spectacular before his volley ends up with the fans.
McClean's ball is cut out by Hines with the home fans starting to grow restless as Boro start to ascend, with Emnes conceding a foul on O'Shea to bring play to a halt.
Tremendous pressure from Boro again as Marvin Emnes' shot is cleared by O'Shea before Williams has a pop which catches Emnes offside as a result.
Robson won't have scored many better than that as Boro lead at the Stadium of Light, before Richardson and McMahon have a tangle on the sidelines which fortunately ends amicably.
Completely out of nowhere, John O'Shea heads away a ball in from the right, and Robson meets it with a stunning volley that completely blazes past Mignolet. What a hit and what a way to open the scoring!
Vaughan goes for goal and his curling effort is threatening but is high over the bar as it failed to dip in time.
Bates and Hines combine to neutralise Larsson's ball in, but Robson cynically floors Sessegnon near the by-line and concedes a free-kick.
Vaughan's corner is headed off Hines on to his own defender and amazingly bounces over the bar! Massive let off for Middlesbrough.
A wild ball from Wickham somehow turns into a magnificent pass to Kieran Richardson across the field, before Bates closes on McClean and concedes a corner in the process.
Robson tracks back well to head away from Larsson on the right, but McDonald can't latch on to Faris Haroun's pass and the ball ventures out of play.
Sessegnon skips past Barry Robson sublimely, and his ball into the box is brilliant for Larsson who disappointingly heads wide from 10 yards. Good move from the hosts.
Danny Coyne gets his kick away after solid pressure from Wickham, and Gardner picks up play before an eventual loose pass from Sessegnon ends up back with Coyne.
Middlesbrough hold up play nicely in midfield, with Hoyte eventually winning a throw-in after a Gardner deflection.
McClean's route is blocked off by Hoyte, and the winger claims a free-kick for obstruction but the referee deems it as good defending, which is probably the right decision.
Wickham looks to head on Wes Brown's route one ball to Stephane Sessegnon, but the striker was caught too deep, before the striker is then caught offside moments later.
Connor Wickham chests the ball down for Seb Larrsson but the winger's ball out wide to James McClean is headed back to goal by Matthew Bates.
Rhys Williams thought he was fouled by Gardner, but ends up conceding a free-kick himself by handling the ball on the ground. Really vocal, tribal atmosphere at the Stadium of Light early on here.
Lukas Jutkiewicz decides to shoot on the turn, and while it's straight down the throat of Simon Mignolet it demands good handling from the Sunderland keeper.
David Vaughan picks up on a loose ball but Barry Robson slides in brilliantly to regain possession, before David Vaughan is clattered by Justin Hoyte on the right side.
Kieran McArdle writes: "Boro to win 2-1 through Emnes and Jutkiewicz! Gonna be a great game but I think we'll pinch cup upset on the cards!"
The Premier League side are naturally favourites to qualify for the fifth round with our friends at Sky Bet, with odds avaliable at 8/15 for a home win. An upset is on the cards at 5/1 if you fancy Middlesbrough to win while the draw is at 16/5.
Sunderland skipper Lee Cattermole is conspicuous by his absence. The Teessider misses out after damaging a hamstring in training on Friday, and with Nicklas Bendtner also out Craig Gardner and Connor Wickham are brought in. Boro are without suspended duo Julio Arca - a Black Cats old boy - and Kevin Thomson, while Joe Bennett is named only among the substitutes as Seb Hines, Tony McMahon and Lukas Jutkiewicz get the nod.
Sunderland team: Mignolet, Bardsley, Richardson, Brown, O'Shea, Larsson, McClean, Vaughan, Gardner, Sessegnon, Wickham.
Middlesbrough team: Coyne, Hines, Hoyte, Williams, Bates, McMahon, Haroun, Robson, McDonald, Emnes, Jutkiewicz.
Michael Bartley tweets: "I'm expecting a close match today but I reckon that O'Neill has enough about him to see us through."
