Sheffield United continued their FA Cup run after coming from behind to beat Nottingham Forest at Bramall Lane.

Forest led at half time thanks to a goal from Jamie Paterson goal but the incentive was there for United at the break with the news they could face a steel city derby against Sheffield Wednesday after the draw for the last eight was made during the first half.

Conor Coady brought United level halfway through the second half and it looked to be heading for a replay at the City Ground until United were awarded a penalty in the final minute of the game.

Chris Porter stepped up to fire United ahead and there was still time for Porter to add his second and a third for United as they confirmed their place in the last eight.

United will now wait to find out whether they will face their arch rivals in the last eight with Wednesday due to meet Charlton Athletic in the fifth round at Hillsborough after their game was postponed yesterday due to a waterlogged pitch.
