7:36 pm
and not just because a memorable day for doncaster fans and notjust because they were on bbc one. there was a chance of seeing their team reached the quarterfinals of the fa cup for the first time in history but at this stage of the tournament, the opposition can often be a step up. in fact, teens can be so much better, they make it look a bit too easy. gliding through the defence inside the opening ten minutes for crystal palace. doncaster needed to lift their game at the premier leaks i continue to press. crystal palace unlucky not to be given a penalty for a possible handball twice. so the visitors took it upon themselves. over the top here and then max meyer. the premier league tea m then max meyer. the premier league team in charge in south yorkshire. doncaster needed a reaction. they got will and came close but not
7:37 pm
close enough. that was heading over. and they could not quite find the mark. palace barely out of second gear. in the end, it was an fa cup store that never really got going. i thought i did a fantasticjob really in them a few very proud of their performance because it was certainly an even game for long periods. luckily, we scored two quick goals and that saw us through so we quick goals and that saw us through so we have to be very happy with that. these matches are real because people do not give doncaster this type of team the credit they should. in the early game, bristol city of the championship will be disappointed they couldn't produce an upset, having won nine in a row coming into their match with wolves. they lost 1—0, but gave the premier league side a scare. hannah lupton watched this one. tinfoil cup, tick. well, it is the fa cup,

7:39 pm
deny the city keeper. wolves hang on and reach the quarter—finals. is this the year that silverware is wrapped in gold? hannah lupton, bbc news. we played really well. well—organised and good combinations, and a lot of chances that can kill the game and put the game to bed. knowing that after we are going to suffer, bristol city is a tough team, a very good team. and when they start putting balls around the box, it is very tough. and they put us against the ropes. it could be said the game of the day was in south wales as swansea beat brentford. ollie watkins put the away side ahead. but two goals in four minutes after the interval swung the match in swansea's favour. danieljames with the second of them. brentford were reduced to ten men before bersent celina made it 3—1. and they sealed the win late on, george byers picking his spot for swansea's fourth to reach the last eight two years in a row.
7:40 pm
they were the better team first off. we had to respond to half—time because the atmosphere in the environment was not so positive. we have to lift up ourselves with a lot of young players, players starting their careers. but i thought their application and attitude and performance and quality was somebody proud of. in the women's fa cup, chelsea are a step closer to succesfully defending their title. they're through to the quarter—finals after beating arsenal 3—0 in a repeat of last year's final. beth england scored twice for chelsea, but it wasjonna andersson with the best goal of the game with a long—range effort. elsehwere, super league—leaders manchester city won 3—0 at tottenham from the league below. liverpool and manchester united
