On this day - 23 April

Classic match

Middlesbrough 0-1 West Ham United
FA Cup semi-final
23 April 2006

It was on this day seven years ago that West Ham United sealed their place in the FA Cup final.

Villa Park was the venue for their last-four showdown with fellow top-flight side Middlesbrough, following wins over Norwich, Blackburn, Bolton and Manchester City in the previous rounds.

The two teams had met in the league just a week earlier at the Riverside Stadium, with Boro coming out on top by a 2-0 scoreline, but Alan Pardew's men ensured there would be no repeat when it mattered.

Marlon Harewood struck in the 78th minute, holding off Gareth Southgate after gathering Dean Ashton's knockdown and powering an angled drive into the roof of the net.

Middlesbrough were unable to respond as the Hammers made it to the final, where Liverpool eventually prevailed on penalties following a dramatic 3-3 draw.
