FAC: West Ham 1-1 Middlesbrough

BY foxsports • February 14, 2009

Herita Ilunga headed a late equaliser as West Ham salvaged a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough in their FA Cup fifth-round clash at Upton Park.

Boro had led through Stewart Downing's first goal of the season and Gareth Southgate's men looked good value for their lead until Ilunga struck.

The Congo defender has a taste for the cup - both his goals this campaign have come in the competition and it keeps alive Gianfranco Zola's hopes of winning the trophy as a manager.
