London – Hull City staged a stirring second half fightback to book their first FA Cup final appearance with a thrilling 5-3 win over Sheffield United at Wembley on Sunday.

Steve Bruce's side survived a stern test from the League One underdogs in a sensational semi-final and will face Arsenal in the first major Cup final in Hull's 110-year history.

United led through Jose Baxter and although Yannick Sagbo equalised Stefan Scougall restored their advantage before half-time.

The Premier League team finally made their extra quality tell after the interval and goals from Matty Fryatt, Tom Huddlestone, Stephen Quinn and David Meyler secured victory in Hull's first FA Cup semi-final for 84 years despite Jamie Murphy's late reply for United. – Sapa-AFP
