LONDON — Third-tier Bradford produced another FA Cup upset against Premier League opposition on Sunday, beating Sunderland 2-0 to reach the quarterfinals for the first time in 39 years.
Jon Stead scored for a fifth consecutive round in the second half after an own goal from John O'Shea gifted Bradford the lead in the third minute.
Bradford, which beat Premier League leader Chelsea to reach the fifth round, is now only one game from a possible Wembley Stadium semifinal.
"We have done it again and we are obviously buzzing," Stead told BBC radio. "It was a terrific start for us to get the goal and we just carried on from there. We did the right things in the right areas."
The day's all-Premier League encounter was less thrilling, with Aston Villa beating Leicester 2-1.
Leandro Bacuna broke the deadlock in the 68th minute, and Scott Sinclair doubled Villa's lead in the 89th, with goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer helping the ball into the net.
Andrej Kramaric headed one back for Leicester a minute later, but Villa held on with new manager Tim Sherwood watching from the stands and yet to take charge fully since his appointment on Saturday.
In the late game, second-tier Middlesbrough played holder Arsenal. The fifth round will be completed on Monday when Manchester United plays at Preston.
Blackburn, Liverpool, Reading and West Bromwich Albion won on Saturday to secure a place in Monday's quarterfinal draw.
