HUD­DER­S­FIELD’S sec­ond string gave it their best shot, but found the might of Manch­ester City too much to cope with in their FA Cup fifth round re­play last Wed­nes­day. Af­ter a 0-0 draw at home in the orig­i­nal tie, the Terriers trav­elled to the Eti­had Sta­dium in good spir­its, but with a weak­ened team in light of yes­ter­day’s key Cham­pi­onship show­down against New­cas­tle. Nonethe­less, David Wag­ner’s men got off to a dream start with Harry Bunn clin­i­cally fir­ing home a sev­enth-minute opener af­ter a slick break. The vis­i­tors held their lead un­til the half-hour mark, but were then hit with a three-goal salvo in eight min­utes. Leroy Sane bagged the lev­eller be­fore Ser­gio Aguero (pen) and Pablo Za­baleta net­ted. City made it 5-1 at the fin­ish with a fur­ther goal from Aguero and one at the death from Kelechi Iheana­cho.
