Third-tier Sheffield United scored in the last minute of extra-time to dump sorry Premier League strugglers Fulham out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory.

The fourth-round replay on Tuesday at a rain-soaked Craven Cottage was almost completely devoid of goalmouth incident and looked destined for penalties until Shaun Miller snatched a dramatic winner in the 120th minute.

Miller's close-range header, from Harry Maguire's knock-down, gave United a second successive victory against top-flight opposition after a previous success against Aston Villa in the third round.

It was the latest indignity in a desperate recent run for Fulham, who have slipped to the foot of the English Premier League table after a run of four consecutive league defeats.

United are themselves second from bottom in League One after a sequence of one win in seven games, but Nigel Clough's side can now look forward to a home tie with either Preston North End or Nottingham Forest in round five.
