Fourth tier side Crawley Town produced the headline result of the FA Cup matchday, as they thrashed Leeds United 3-0 to make it through to the next round. Marcelo Bielsa's side were given a brutal wake-up call, as goals from Nicholas Tsaroulla, Ashley Nadesan and Jordan Tunnicliffe gave the home side a historic victory.

The moment of the game, however, came in stoppage time. With Crawley Town's victory effectively confirmed, manager John Yems decided to introduce television personality Mark Wright in stoppage time, as he made his debut for the club after joining on a non-contract basis in December 2020.
