FA Cup: Luton stun Norwich, QPR out

Luton produced the surprise result of the FA Cup fourth round with a 1-0 win at Premier League Norwich.

Scott Rendell’s 80th minute goal proved decisive in a clash between two sides separated by 85 places in the English football ladder.

The Blue Square Premier side’s victory at Carrow Road means they are only the seventh non-league team to reach the fifth round of the competition since World War Two.

Norwich were not the only top flight team embarrassed, as MK Dons won 4-2 at QPR.

Harry Redknapp, who made sweeping changes ahead of Tuesday’s visit of Manchester City in the league, saw his team thrashed by their League One opponents.

QPR knocked MK Dons out in the third round of this competition last year, but Armand Traore’s fourth-minute own goal and Ryan Lowe’s 40th-minute effort gave the visitors control at half-time.

Ryan Harley (50) and Darren Potter (56) made it 4-0 before Jay Bothroyd and Fabio pulled two goals back inside the last seven minutes for the Premier League side.

Twenty years on from his first FA Cup goal, Ryan Giggs set Manchester United on the road to a comfortable fourth-round victory as they swept Fulham aside 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The 39-year-old, who claimed the first of his 12 FA Cup goals in a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on January 23, 1993, scored an early penalty before a Wayne Rooney goal and a Javier Hernandez brace completed the rout.

Giggs, who has won the FA Cup four times and lost a further three finals during his illustrious United career, handed the hosts the lead when they were awarded a penalty after only 70 seconds.
