6:32 pm
this afternoon couldn't have gone much better for manchester united. current fa cup holders, they beat reading 4—0 at old trafford with one of their goals coming from wayne rooney. it was his 249th goal for united, equalling the club record set by sir bobby charlton, who was watching on. adam wild reports. arriving as the theatre of dreams, for rain marine e, —— wayne rooney, it was a moment to fulfill his. and among the audience, the man whose record he was chasing. rooney one away. and nobody had to wait long. wayne rooney equals the goal—scoring record of sir bobby charlton for manchester united. off his knee but
6:33 pm
all the same. record equalling, but wayne rooney's role goes beyond that. seashell anthony martial for the second, and the league could have been greater before half—time, but marcus rashford eventually could. this was comfortable for the cup holders. and marcus rashford's fourth could not have been easier. landmark win for fourth could not have been easier. landmark winfora fourth could not have been easier. landmark win for a landmark occasion. rashford's second — united's fourth — couldn't have been any easier. to be up there in terms of goals with sir bobby, it's a really proud moment for me. hopefully i'll be out there on my own soon, but today, i'll enjoy today. it's a real honour. a record equalled — now to break it. for such a player that surely won't take long. it was a professional performance.
6:34 pm
we respected the opponents, and found good qualities. we have some qualities that we could explore. and it was a professional performance with everybody focused, committed. i am happy. it is always good to be back what you want to get the result. and you want to get back. the atmosphere is always good. fans have been great. but i am thinking more about the team. more than what the fans have been doing. i am very thankful. but i need to look at my team. and think about what we could do. it has been an interesting start to the fa cup so far. any upsets? we'll start with the most successful side in fa cup history, arsenal, and they're hoping to avoid an upset this evening.
6:35 pm
they're into the second half at championship side preston north end. and it's the championship side who are leading i—o. callum robinson was quickest to pounce on the loose ball inside the penalty area, to put preston ahead on seven minutes. preston dominated the first half and could and should have been further ahead but the final ball was found wanting. a former manchester united youngster went close too — forcing david ospina into a good save low down. but for all their dominance, preston couldn't find a second goal and had chris maxwell to thank for keeping out arsenal's best chance — this header from aaron ramsey. john is with me. game. interesting you would not expect arsenal to the 1-0 you would not expect arsenal to the 1—0 down? you would not expect arsenal to the 1-0 down? so poor. big team talk needed from wenger. arsenal not
6:36 pm
looking like the premier league team. excellent atmosphere at deepdale. looking lethargic again today. but they proved the character against bournemouth, i would expect them to get through to the next round. it is going to be a big 45 minutes. probably a bit of a shock in millwall of league one, beating top flight bournemouth, 3—0. yes. bournemouth made 11 changes. paid the price. 3—0 win for the london side. third goal by shane ferguson, third minute of added time. millwall, ninth in league one. ido time. millwall, ninth in league one. i do not think many people expected this opposite. we mentioned that 3—3 draw with arsenal, but bournemouth have paid the price for all those
6:37 pm
changes. 11. and the millwall manager thought that they deserve this. i enjoyed that. the boys have been working hard, on thursday and friday. trying to stop bournemouth, and mollify the threat. it is a hugely talented squad. we knew that we we re hugely talented squad. we knew that we were capable of making chances, i am delighted that we were clinical. pleased with the clean sheet. hindsight is a wonderful thing. and if we knew that we were good to perform so badly, we would not have done that. but i know those players. who frustrated are they? we have developed the winning culture, and to succumb in that manner, hugely disappointing. you've got to feel a little for lincoln here. so, so close to causing an upset against ipswich, but 2—2 it finished. linclon went in front twice in this game. first of all early on when theo robinson got on the end of this cross.
6:38 pm
ipswich levelled almost immediately when tom lawrence dribbled through the defence to score through the goalkeeper‘s legs. but lincoln always looked like they could score again against the championship side, and robinson again seized on the error in the ipswich defence to make it 2—1. it was looking like a shock was the cards, but late on lawrence got his second of the game to rescue mick mccarthy's side. ipswich town, struggling in the championship at the moment, some rumblings from fans, in 15th place. this is not going to have help. but we can speak to the lincoln manager. i think the overriding emotion is one of pride. disappointment when you get so close, but we were under
6:39 pm
pressure today and we feel the responsibility or 5000 supporters coming all this week to support us. gave the best version of ourselves. pleased that able to do that. had norwich city, late equaliser at ca rrow norwich city, late equaliser at carrow road? it looked as though the premier league team were going to be heading through, but then the former everton player had his say. steven naismith got the equaliser, 2—2. no fo nte, naismith got the equaliser, 2—2. no fonte, interestingly. remember, he handed that transfer request in. norwich city have been inconsistent in the championships so this could bea in the championships so this could be a confidence booster. now, perhaps an emotional game for afc wimbledon, unable to overcome lower league opposition, it ended 0—0 against sutton united. two tea ms
6:40 pm
two teams that caused upsets in the 80s. sutton had the better of the game with maxime biamou denied twice in the first half. dons striker tom elliott had a header cleared off the line in stoppage time, but neither side could find a winner. and they'll do it all again. it was excellent, for 0—0. two neighbours. here's sutton captainjamie collins, but first his manager paul doswell. you can get wrapped up in that game. big chance. i thought the goalkeeper made some very good seats. we have done ourselves credit. at home, we always fancy ourselves against anybody. we have struggled away from home recently. to be honest, we had some better chances in the first hour. but we're going to take that
6:41 pm
draw. go to their place. another great day. when we talk about the fa cup, we're always talking about magic. the lowest—ranked team in the third round, stourbridge, have been knocked out by wycome. 2—1 the final score, but wycombe left it late. this is the game that i watched. seventh tier! did so well! wycombe were made to wait for the break through but they did go in front early in the second half through sam wood. but stourbridge got what was a deserved equaliser for the northern premier league side. dan scarr getting on the end of the scramble. but it was heartbreak for the side from the black country. adebayo akinfenwa denying them a replay with a late header to make it 2—1. known as the strongest footballer! and excellent performance. we can get some reaction. you can see why
6:42 pm
they got to the third round. gave us a game today. obviously, akinfenwa with the winner. at times, they gave us with the winner. at times, they gave usa with the winner. at times, they gave us a good game. it is fantastic that wycombe are in the fourth round, heck of an achievement. but that was tough. as tough as many in league two. it was an unbelievable effort from the team. over the 90 minutes i thought we were the better team. but it is always fine margins. very proud of everybody. the performance, and the supporters were absolutely amazing. hairs on my neck! i'm down. but like everybody else, for the right reasons. no hiccups for rochdale, against barrow of the national league. 2—0 the final score.
6:43 pm
rochdale, one of the stories of the seasons. rochdale, one of the stories of the seasons. both goals by henderson. great form. barrow huffed and puffed. but rochdale, always looking a class above. paul cox the barrow boss now. i thought in the first half we had two great chances, to get back into the game. but the whole game, you looked at rochdale, andi whole game, you looked at rochdale, and i thought that they were in the final third. better we struggled in those areas. lads worked so hard. it has been a fantasticjourney. and we we re has been a fantasticjourney. and we were beaten by a fantastic team today. we will dust ourselves down,
6:44 pm
go again. six goals in this next game, brentford five, eastleigh one. probably how you expected that to go? the difference in leagues and quality showed here. bre ntford brentford did well. the penalty won here. and yellow card in the end for stack. no mistake, converting from the spot. sawyers sealed the 5—1 win. best goal of the match. two for field as well. brentford, really good. and the former leicester city
6:45 pm
boss, martin allen, proud. at half—time, i was asking them to meet theirfamilies proud. half—time, i was asking them to meet their families proud. 5—1. half—time, i was asking them to meet theirfamilies proud. 5—1. it could have been a tanking. good job. you could not ask any more from the players. and i think the brentford supporters appreciated that, with the standing ovation. despite the result, it was a great day for me personally. what a difference a season makes. palace were fa cup finalists last season. today, they played out a goalless draw against bolton. it was a homecoming for sam alla rdyce. it was a homecoming for sam allardyce. problems for crystal palace. 0—0. it was very tough. you can see the reaction. he knows that he has got a big job on. good welcome. but the stadium was not full. sam alla rdyce, welcome. but the stadium was not full. sam allardyce, going to have
6:46 pm
two have a replay. my disappointment was the fact that we got good chancesin was the fact that we got good chances in the first half and could not take that to the second. but the most pleasing thing for me, at long last, we have not conceded a goal. we have to take that clean sheet scenario and deliver that at west ham. typical fa cup. drizzly. wet. two tea ms ham. typical fa cup. drizzly. wet. two teams giving it all. and not a lot of quality in front of goal, from our point of view. and we can ta ke from our point of view. and we can take a look at the rest of the results. so many to choose from. what takes your fancy? five premier league teams going out. leicester city have not won away from home all season. city have not won away from home all season. romelu lukaku give everton
6:47 pm
the lead. musa, leicester city getting the win. two goals for the nigerian. and brighton, 2—0 win. we can see some more results. some premier league teams have struggled. bournemouth, we mentioned. hull city. battle of the new managers. marco silva just took charge. paul clement in charge of swansea city. it is good to be interesting to see what that does for confidence. and last but not least. some premier league teams who have gone out. west bromich albion, strong team against derby. tom ince scored the winner. sunderland going to need the replay. and stoke city. also, equaliserfor arsenal. aaron ramsey. 1—1. that is
6:48 pm
the fa cup round—up. and you have the fa cup round—up. and you have the rest of the sport? couldn't have asked for a better match to start the 2017 tennis season. the world's number one and two, sir andy myrray and noavk djokiovic spent hours on court in the final of the qatar open with djokovic the eventual winner. anti—us broke andy murray's 28 match winning streak to an end. sir andy murray walked out of these are familiar opponent, on the other side of the net it was novak djokovic, who he has played 35 teams previously. and they both started where they left off. the number one could not capitalise and djokovic then forced his way into the match. taking the opening set 6—3. good start to the up a break again.
6:49 pm
second, quickly serving for the match. at previous encounters, andy murray could have crumbled, but he saved three match points. it moved to the decider. it then became a taste of physical endurance, but djokovic ground out the win. andy murray retains the number one ranking, but the serb has the advantage. it's the first week of the tennis season as the world's best prepare for this month's australia open. katerina siniakova of the czech republic has won her first wta tour title, beating eighth—seed alison riske in the final of the shenzhen open in china. the 20—year—old, who knocked out british number one johanna konta in the semi—finals, had little trouble against riske, breaking the american twice in each set to win 6—3, 6—4. she had lost her two previous wta finals last year. seventh seed grigor dimitrov is through to the brisbane international final after upsetting the defending champion milos raonic in the semi final. the bulgarian progressed
6:50 pm
in straight sets and will meet japan's kei nishikori in the final. nishikori beat stanislas wawrinka in the first semi final. sir mo farah‘s attempt to win the great edinburgh international cross country for a second time ended in disappointment this afternoon. the two time double olympic champion, struggled at holyrood park, finishing seventh in his first race of 2017. great britain's callum hawkins was beaten into second by america's leonard korir in a sprint finish. iam i am definitely never behind. the last bit of training has not gone as well as i wanted. but it is a team event. i want to represent my country and help the guys. early on... ten days before... what do i do? idid on... ten days before... what do i do? i did a session. and i knew it
6:51 pm
was going to be hard. saracens have returned to the top of rugby union's premiership — coming from behind to draw 13—13 with exeter chiefs. saracens had to play 70 minutes with 1a men after richard barrington was sent off for illegally using his shoulder in this challenge with former geoff parling. the former england flanker left the field on a stretcher and his side looked to be on course for victory until titi lamisotele bundled the ball over late on. alex lozowski slotted home the conversion to tie the scores and take sarrcens above wasps, who play leicester tomorrow. elsewhere... gloucester scored seven tries. quins beat shale. and bristol, bottom of the table, won today. ospreys are top of the pro12 after beating champions, connaught at the liberty stadium 29—7. the welsh side had a 14—0 lead by half time.
6:52 pm
ashley beck sealed the bonus point score in the final minute. glasgow play cardiff blues later this evening. australia beat pakistan by 220 runs in the third test at sydney to complete a 3—0 series whitewash. the tourists started the day on 55—1 and needed to bat out day five to save the test. but they lasted just 64 overs before being bowled out for 244. josh hazlewood and stephen o'keefe took three wickets each. it was a 12th successive test defeat in australia for misbah—ul—haq's side. the top seed and world number one glen durrant is safely into round two at the bdo world championship. the tournament started at the lakeside this afternoon and durrant got proceedings off and running with a stunning opening check out, a 167 to put him on course for victory against wales's nick kenny. durrant is the favourite to win this week. he won his first round

6:54 pm
decision through an appeal. nick hope reports. they were superb. winning olympic bronze in rio was supposed to be the catalyst for future badminton success. no one predicted uk sport would cut all their funding. to receive that information was gutting. it almost felt like our medals were snatched away from us. without any support at all from uk sport, our programme will take a severe hit. lots of players will have to leave and stop playing. badminton is the most played racket sport in the uk, but uk sport base their funding model on who they think will win olympic medals, and they are not sure about badminton. this board believes they can overturn the decision in the next month. we have a really strong case. we have players who in the last 12 months have won olympic medals, world tour titles, super series titles, the biggest events in our sport where we are competing regularly and beating the best
6:55 pm
in the world. commonwealth champions missed out on a medal in rio, which could have been crucial to the uk sport decision. the pair have consistently mixed it with the world's elite. something these rising stars aim to follow. without the uk sport funding, it will be virtually impossible for those at milton keynes to make the jump to the olympics. individually we have the potential to win medals in tokyo. everybody should have the opportunity to reach their goals and dreams. i've had my time. i got to go and achieve what i did. i feel like it's been a waste. don'tjust go from support to nothing. give these guys a chance. now it's almost like mount everest. but we are willing to climb it. we are going to fight this until the very end. the battle begins later this month, with uk sport insisting they will give badminton a fair hearing and the opportunity to earn a reprieve.
6:56 pm
more on that on the website. and you can find out what has been happening in the fa cup, and the match between arsenal and preston, 1—1 at the moment. aaron ramsey getting the equaliser. 25 minutes left in that. that's all from sportsday. there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. thank you forjoining us. hello. after a particularly grey day for the majority at least another fairly murky night to come tonight. if you're on the move through the night into the morning, there could be some dense patches of fog here and there. generally misty, really, certainly over the hills, but that fog will thicken up in one or two spots. even where you have clearer skies, east of scotland, eastern parts of england,
6:57 pm
even here one or two fog patches could develop. but it's here we see temperatures drop the furthest, even a touch of frost for parts of scotland. for most, another frost free, mild night, temperatures six to eight celsius. grey start to the second half of the weekend. little changes. murkiest in the morning. patchy rain or drizzle here or there. later, something wet to the west, especially the west of scotland. the breeze will pick up. highlands. the odd heavier burst of rain expected. wetter in the afternoon. north east scotland will see glimpses of sunshine. dampest in the middle part of the day, pushing to the isle of man. misty across the hills of the north of england and north wales. north east wales could see sunshine but for most, rather grey skies so if you are heading to any of the fa cup third round games watch out for fog and hope the matches are more exciting than the sky colour!
