Sunderland crash out of FA Cup, lose 2-0 to League One Bradford

Sunderland's FA Cup hopes are over after a 2-0 defeat to Bradford City this afternoon.

Bradford City's sensational FA Cup run continues after a 2-0 win over Sunderland at Valley Parade this afternoon, adding another giantkilling to their name.

Phil Parkinson's Bantams came from 2-0 down to beat Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge in the last round, but their journey continues after dumping Sunderland out of the competition.

In front of a full house at Valley Parade, Bradford seized the occasion, and took the lead after only three minutes, as Billy Clarke's shot as deflected into his own net by John O'Shea.

Bradford then wrapped it up in the second half, as former Blackburn striker Jon Stead squeezed the ball underneath Vito Mannone to send them through.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is under increasing pressure after an embarrassing exit, but should have seen his side score when Steven Fletcher dawdled on the ball in front of goal, wasting a glorious first half chance.

Bradford now go into the hat for Monday's sixth round draw, as Parkinson guides his side to the last eight - just two years after making it to the Capital One Cup final, despite being in League One.
