Sullay Kaikai helped Cambridge United gain a money-spinning replay at Old Trafford next week as the U's held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw at the Abbey Stadium last Friday night.
The teenage Palace winger was lively during the 53 minutes he was on the field before being replaced, and is in line to feature for his current club at the Theatre of Dreams in the replay as they aim to cause another cup shock to go with the others that occurred over the weekend.
His fellow under-21 winger Jake Gray also had a weekend to remember as he made his league debut for Cheltenham Town against Luton Town on Saturday, and marked the occasion by assisting his side's goal in a 1-1 draw.
The result leaves the Cherries with just one victory in their last 12 games, and they currently occupy 17th position in the League Two table.
Faring better in the division is Jerome Binnom-Williams as his Southend United side came from behind to beat Portsmouth 2-1 and extend their unbeaten run to seven games. The left-back once again impressed at the heart of the Shrimpers defence as they moved just four points behind behind an automatic promotion berth.
In the Championship, Zeki Fryers helped Rotherham United pull away from the relegation zone by beating Bolton Wanderers 4-2 on Tuesday night. The defender played the full 90 minutes in the game and the three points helped the Millers move five points clear of the bottom three.
Meanwhile Stephen Dobbie was an unused substitute as Fleetwood Town crept into the League One play-off places courtesy of a 1-0 win against Lewis Price's Crawley Town. The Welsh shot-stopper was unable to keep out Antoni Sarcevic's free-kick which proved to be the only goal of the game, and the result sees the Red Devils drop to the foot of the table, five points from safety.
Peter Ramage's Barnsley side are just two points ahead of that same relegation zone after losing 2-0 to high flying MK Dons, but the Goerdie defender failed to appear from the Tykes' substitutes bench.
In non-league Gus Sow was also in cup action for Farnborough Town but they crashed out of the FA Trophy at the hands of North Ferriby United. It was the young midfielder's second appearance for the club as he appeared as a 69th minute substitute but was unable to turn his side's fortunes around.
