Rewind: FA Cup classic at Selhurst Park

Wimbledon 2-2 Wycombe (7-8 on penalties)

20 February 2018

On this day in 2001, Lawrie Sanchez's Wycombe side continued their remarkable FA Cup win a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Wimbledon at Selhurst Park.

Gareth Ainsworth put the hosts in front before Dave Carroll levelled, but Wycombe were dealt a triple blow following injuries to Andy Rammell and Andy Baird, and a red card to Michael Simpson.

Martin Taylor saved Neal Ardley's 90th minute penalty to force extra-time, but Wayne Gray's early strike looked to have secured the Don's progress before Paul McCarthy grabbed a last-gasp equaliser.

Taylor denied Peter Hawkins in the shootout and scored himself before Mark Williams ballooned his shot over the bar to spark euphoric scenes from the Chairboys fans.
