Athlone Town 0-0 Sheriff YC (Sheriff win 4-3 on penalties)

Dublin side Sheriff YC have reached the quarter-finals of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup after defeating SSE Airtricty League First Division side Athlone Town 4-3 in a penalty shootout at Athlone Town Stadium.

With both the AUL champions and the hosts failing to break the deadlock in 120 minutes of this Cup replay, penalties followed.

John Rock, who earned Sheriff a second bite of the cherry last Friday, became a club legend when he scored the decisive spot-kick to earn Sheriff a shot against Longford Town in the next round.
