Hull fans react on Twitter to Brighton win: 'Wembley here we come!'

Hull City are now just one win away from a trip to Wembley after beating Brighton Hove Albion in the FA Cup.

Steve Bruce's side were 2-1 victors over the Championship side on Monday night in a replay of the fifth-round tie that finished 1-1 at the Amex Stadium.

Yannick Sagbo was Hull's hero with a late equaliser in the original clash but Curtis Davies and Robert Koren got the important goals in the replay. Both first-half strikes sent the Tigers through to the quarter-finals - despite a second-half goal from Leonard Ulloa that created a tense finale.

And the win came even though the hosts were playing their second game in just three days, after their 4-0 win in Cardiff on Saturday.

The result means Hull are just one game away from an appearance at Wembley, while they could even qualify for Europe depending on who completes the last four.

But facing the Tigers first will be Bruce's former side Sunderland, who will be desperate for revenge after Hull beat them twice in the Premier League - with the Black Cats not finishing either game with 11 men.

Nevertheless, the Hull faithful were in jubilant mood after their FA Cup triumph over Brighton, leaving many supporters ecstatic at the thought of a trip to Wembley. Can Bruce's boys make their dream a reality?

Will Hull make it to Wembley this season?
